Engineering systems research
Systems engineering research at Wolfson includes both the research into the science and methodologies of systems engineering to product, process and organisational challenges as well as the applications of systems engineering principles to many engineering activities, such as control, embedded electronics, socio-technical organisation, manufacturing systems and automation and virtual reality systems research.
Activities we address include but are not limited to:
- Electronics system design and analysis
- Embedded software systems
- Machine learning
- Complex systems
- Control and control systems
- Systems architecture
- Robotic systems
- Intelligent automation
- Manufacturing ICT
- Digital manufacturing
Electronic Systems Design Research Group
The group focuses on the design of electronic hardware and embedded software with particular expertise in microprocessor design and machine learning.
Advanced Systems, Modelling and Simulation Research Group
The group undertakes leading research into challenging complex systems problems involving enterprises, people, processes and technologies.
Control Systems Research Group
The group has an established track record for applied research in control systems engineering which goes back more than 40 years.
Engineering Systems of Systems Research Group
The group researches Complex Socio-technical Systems.
Systems Architecture Group for Engineering Research Group
The group researches model driven methods for systems architecting and engineering and engages in collaborative application of model driven architecture methods to fundamental engineering problems.
Wearable Biorobotics Research Group
The group's objectives are the observation and the analysis of the human being, which can be seen as an extreme and exquisite example of robotic system.
Intelligent Automation Research Group
Intelligent automation provides supervisory functionality as well as production functionality. Intelligent automation systems deploy sensors to measure the input and output of a process as well as intermediate parts of the process.
Manufacturing ICT Research Group
ICT tools are key strategically important technologies to enable current and next generations of manufacturing. Research in this space addresses the full spectrum of design tools, knowledge management and methodologies to support design, through to production with embedded intelligence to operational life and service and eventually end-of-life and re-birth into new products and processes.
Advanced VR Research Centre (AVRRC)
The Centre is a world-leading centre for Virtual Engineering research.
