WMG - University of Warwick


WMG centre HVM Catapult is currently involved in a number of rail projects including the Very Light Rail Innovation Centre and the Revolution Very Light Rail Project. The very light rail sector offers a significant opportunity for UK companies to develop new solutions embracing technology transferred from the automotive sector. WMG's focus on low carbon mobility links closely to the very light rail sector, which has many advantages over traditional rail systems including: vehicles with low axle weights, self-powered vehicles with energy recovery and storage systems as standard, reduced capital cost and installation time for track infrastructure, and reduced infrastructure operational and maintenance costs.
