Founded in 2016, the Autonomous Vehicles & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (AVAILAB) is a multidisciplinary laboratory within the Centre for Future Transport and Cities) (CFTC) at Coventry University.
While open to a wide spectrum of applications, the AVAILAB’s main motivation is in conducting research and supporting teaching involving Applied Mathematical Modelling, Optimisation, Soft & Natural Computing, Self-Organisation & Swarm Robotics, Autonomous Navigation and Positioning Systems with applications in Aerospace, Automotive and Environmental Engineering.

The Autonomous Vehicles & Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (AVAILAB) was founded at Coventry University in 2016 under the name of Smart Vehicles Control Laboratory (SVeCLab) by Dr Mauro S. Innocente, Dr Arash M. Dizqah and Dr José M. Herreros. After two of the co-founders left the institution, the focus of the laboratory shifted and its name was therefore amended accordingly in 2018.
