An alternative presentation has been arranged - on an automotive theme.

Vehicles made of software, driven by software – an overview of current and future automotive electrical architectures.
This talk will cover:
The explosive growth in the use of distributed control systems and embedded software in the automotive industry.
The impact of this technological shift - illustrated through a tour of a typical modern automotive electrical architecture.
The unique challenges (and opportunities) of using this technology in automotive applications - technical, safety, legislative, social.
Continuing developments and future trends – what can we expect to see over the next 5years and more?

BCS Coventry presents:
Formula One - The Red Bull Way
Steve Nevey, Relationship Manager, Red Bull Racing.
Red Bull entered formula one by purchasing the Jaguar Racing team in 2004 and life there has never been the same since. A total commitment to on-track success and a refreshing approach to how things are done in the paddock, prompting smiles and frowns from the incumbent regulars in approximately equal measure, has certainly spiced things up!
Steve Nevey will talk about the team's history and will describe the technology that is necessary to produce a World Championship winning car. He will explain Red Bull's approach to Formula One and will share details of what goes into getting the team and its entourage around the globe.
His previous Formula One experience was with the Footwork Arrows team, where he worked as a Design Engineer for three years. Immediately prior to joining Stewart Grand Prix (now Red Bull Racing), Steve was a Senior Teaching Fellow with the University of Warwick, where his responsibilities included teaching Design and Design Management, at post-graduate degree level, and delivering consultancy to engineering companies throughout the world.
This event is free to attend, but booking is essential.
The lecture is on the 18th of January in the Armstrong Siddeley building at Coventry University. The lecture starts at 18.30, with refreshments available from 18.00.
Directions to the Armstrong Siddeley building are available here.
