Nottingham Trent University


Nottingham Trent University, School of Science and Technology at currently holds £23 000 000 in external research funding from diverse sources including funding councils, UK and International industries and charities. Our cutting edge portfolio shows core strengths in Materials, Devices, Interactive and Intelligent Systems, Biosciences and Health Sciences. National agencies, charities and industry include the Anthony Nolan Trust, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Food Standards Agency, Home Office, Leverhulme Trust, Nuffield Foundation, Royal Mail, van Geest Foundation, Veterinary Laboratories Agency, Wellcome Trust and UK Sport. International funding includes the US Department of Homeland Security, US National Institutes of Health (NIH) US Federal Aviation Administration, the European Union and European Regional Development Fund.

Nottingham Trent University contributes to the project with its expertise in simulation and modelling of traffic and also with its experience in modelling wireless and ad-hoc mobile networks. NTU is responsible for the developing of the integrated simulator prototype. This task will involve integration of three separate simulators in a single prototype simulator. NTU is also the work package leader of field trials and assessment. The expertise that NTU has in developing traffic control models will be combined with the experience existing in the Nottingham Control Centre to provide advanced traffic research test environment in Nottingham, UK and Sofia Bulgaria.


MODUM addresses the environmental footprint in the transport sector by developing a new approach for pro-active demand-responsive management of traffic. This approach enables energy-efficient multi-modal transport choices accommodating dynamic variations, minimising the environmental impact and improving the quality of life in urban environments.
