Last chance to see the Our Future Moves exhibition

12 October 2021

​Unearth an exciting glimpse into the future of transport, technology, and a sustainable environment with Our Future Moves until the end of the month!

And what better place to envision our future, than the birthplace of the motor car in the UK. The exhibition, Our Future Moves allows visitors to explore how technology being developed today will impact our lives in the future. From autonomous vehicles and electronic charging points to submarines, satellites, and AI facial recognition cars.

Coventry, Warwickshire, and the West Midlands have a long history of inventions and industry, while the pace of change means that what might seem like daydreaming today may well be everyday life tomorrow. From the Father of the Cycle Industry, James Starley to iconic cars. From Sir Frank Whittle’s jet engines to electric vehicles and self-driving pods, some of the best technology was pioneered here.

Visitors can expect urban airport models, F1 car parts and a crushed Hillman Imp while adventuring through six exhibition themes, from smarter cities and smarter living to transport innovation and futuristic technologies.

As part of the exhibition, the region’s industry leaders have come together to demonstrate our ability to innovate – past, present, and future. The showcase launched in July 2021 and will continue until summer 2022 through a series of events – including demonstrations of the latest technology.

Francis Nielsen, Cultural & Creative Director of Culture Coventry, said: “We are so proud that the yearlong showcase of Our Future Moves launched with the immersive exhibition at Coventry Transport Museum and will see a year of activities which showcase how Coventry and the wider region are centres of innovation for future transport.

“Make sure you visit the exhibition to discover the world of tomorrow - and see how technology can help solve the problems of today.”

Atkins is an official Sponsor of Our Future Moves.
