Personal profile


Yuri Vershinin joined Coventry University, as Senior Lecturer, Assistant Professor in late 2000 after his research at Aston University, following on from his industrial career. His industrial work experience included digital and analog systems design, design and implementation of electronic systems for automation and control, and microprocessor control systems. His recent research has been carried out in the area of adaptive control systems, identification, decentralized control, Kalman filtering and optimal control. He has worked in machine vision, image processing and computer graphics.


Yuri Vershinin has developed new teaching modules which were unique in the time of their creation, i.e. Intelligent Transport Systems (2006), and Telematics (2009). He was the module leader and developed and taught the following modules for undergraduate and postgraduate courses from 2001: Fight Dynamics and Control, Avionics, Instrumentation, Signals and Systems (Telecommunications), Advanced Vehicle Systems, Measurement and Analysis for Development, Electronics and Electro-Mechanical Technology, Powertrain Electronics, and Control Engineering. Following to the teaching curricular, he taught microprocessors (M68HC11 and PIC18 series), C/C++ programming language, Matlab/Simulink, and Labview software. During his work in Aerospace and Electronics Department he has developed practical laboratory-based courseworks based on the GPS, INS - Inertial Navigation System (which includes a solid-state gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer), and the mil-std-1553 avionics data-bus for Avionics and Aerospace Engineering courses. Later, working in Mechanical and Automotive Engineering Department, he has designed practical courseworks for the relevant courses, i.e. Microprocessors for Automotive Applications, Controller Area Network (CAN-bus), Design of Automotive Telemetry System, and Design of Autonomous Vehicle. Students have tested the designed telemetry system in the real conditions on a car Peogeout-206 on Bruntingthope racing track.


Yuri Vershinin organized the Special Edition “Advanced Control Systems in Automotive Applications” of the International Journal “Modelling, Identification and Control”, IJMIC, (Guest Editors: Y.A. Vershinin, (Coventry University, UK), Professor V. Utkin (The Ohio State University, USA), and Professor G. Rizzoni (The Ohio State University, USA). Yuri Vershinin was the Co- Chair of ICEEE and the Invited Speaker on ICME of the World Congress on Engineering (WCE2012), Imperial College, London, UK. Also, he has provided the Keynote Speech on the International Multi-Conference of Engineers and Computer Scientists (IMECS-2013), International Conference on Electrical Engineering (ICEE) in Hong Kong, March 2013, and on “The World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science 2014” (WCECS-2014), the University of California at Berkeley, San Francisco, USA. He is the Associate Editor and Member of the International Program Committee for the IEEE Intelligent Transport Systems Conference ITSC-2013 (Hague, the Netherlands), ITSC-2014 (Qingdao, China), and ITSC-2015 (Spain). He has published as the author and co-author around 80 journal and conference papers and contributed the Book Chapter “Adaptive Control System for Solution of Fault Tolerance Problem” (Springer Publication, 2014). He was invited to give the Keynote Speech at the international conference in the University of California at Berkeley (UC Berkeley), 2014. He organised the Special Session on Application of Intelligent Systems for the IEEE ITSC 2014 (Qingdao, China). He was the member of the International Program Committee for the IEEE ITSC-2015 (Spain), IEEE ITSC-2016 (Brazil) and IEEE Intelligent Vehicle Symposium (Sweden, 2016).  He is the reviewer of technical papers on conferences and projects for the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council EPSRC (UK).  


At Coventry University he has formed the Intelligent Transport Systems and Telematics (ITS&T) Applied Research Group in order to work on practical tasks related to advanced automotive systems, active suspension systems design, CAN-data bus, vehicle diagnostics and safety, GPS based vehicle position monitoring, sensors parameters monitoring, data-transmission based on the spread-spectrum modulation transmitters and GPRS network, and other ITS related tasks. In particular, modelling and simulation of road traffic networks for optimization of the traffic flow, traffic accidents simulation, reduction of fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. Other projects, related to Intelligent Transport Systems, include modelling and simulation of signalized and non-signalized roundabouts for optimal traffic control, design and simulation of the optimal allocation of traffic infrastructure, charging stations for electric vehicles in car parks and on the roads. More recently, the following projects have been carried out: emergency evacuation of pedestrians and vehicles in the city and from car-parks due to environmental disasters and related threats, logistics of multi-modal transportation, drivers health and performance monitoring via the internet using wireless sensors, and simulation of hybrid-electric and fully-electric vehicles in different traffic and environmental conditions. At the present time the ITS&T group is interested in the development, building and testing of autonomous vehicles: unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), unmanned air vehicles (UAV) and maritime autonomous vehicles (MAV). The group is actively engaged in the work on the European Union project - remote control of equipment and robots via the Internet. The Web-based Laboratory (WBL) has been tested from different countries, i.e. France, Germany, India, Russia, Ukraine, Spain, Sweden and the UK. He participated in the preparation of joint project proposals for the European Union Frame Work Programme, FP-7, and was the Principal Investigator in several practical projects financed by the EPSRC and external companies. He has prepared with his colleagues from the Applied Mathematics Research Centre the project proposal to the European Union Commission DIONICOS, which includes 19 partner organizations around the world. The project proposal has been successful and has been awarded the grant for the duration of 4 years.


Also, Yuri Vershinin is working on specific research and consultancy projects with industrial organizations. He is the first designer in UK universities of a new automotive communication protocol system CAN-Open (Controller Area Network – Open Protocol; electronics and software design, testing and production) for emergency vehicles (Police cars). This R&D work has been completed following to the contract for the General Motors (GM) contractor organization. The designed by his ITS&T Group devices (embedded electronics transmitter-receiver nodes based on Fujitsu microprocessors) have been tested on Police cars on the Proving Ground and in real working conditions on roads in the UK. The feedback from the UK Police on the performance of his devices was excellent. The obtained results were presented on Industrial conferences for automotive networking systems in Germany and France.


These devices with the required documentation were made for the production for the UK Police cars. The cost of this industrial consultancy project is £130,000 for one year. These results can be extended and offered for the mass production to any other interested organizations, if required (for automotive, railway, maritime, oil and gas, aviation, aerospace, industrial, medical, civil engineering or domestic applications).
