Operational Network Responses to Weather Events to Improve Future Climate Resilience

Project Description Different weather events have different impacts on the railway network, both physically and in terms of performance. For example, flooding incidents are often quite localised but their impacts can be felt across the national network, whereas the impacts of heat on the railway can often cover large parts of the country, particularly in […]

Experimental Studies on Quench of HTS High Field Magnets

Project Description Next-generation High Field Superconducting Magnets Superconducting magnets are the primary worldwide application of superconductivity. MRI has revolutionised medical imaging, and NMR has enabled the discovery of modern drugs. In physical science research, high field superconducting magnets provide a crucial tool for exploring new quantum materials. They are essential for research into materials for […]

Assured and Scalable Self-Adaptation for the Engineering of Trustworthy Autonomous Robotic Teams

Project Description Robotic teams and other distributed autonomous systems (DAS) are increasingly used in several application domains including logistics, manufacturing, and infrastructure inspection. Assuring the trustworthiness of DAS carrying out a safety-critical task collaboratively is very challenging due to uncertainties and risks associated with the operating environment, team member failures, etc. To overcome these challenges, […]

Study of the human-vehicle interactions by a high-end dynamic driving simulator

Project Description Vehicle electrification and autonomous driving require extensive testing for human-vehicle interfaces and human acceptance. The reduction of testing time and costs of ADAS and autonomous driving systems is of great importance for the automotive industry. Driving simulators are a viable solution for time to market and costs reduction. However, several issues related to […]
