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

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.

Wearable Biorobotics Research Group

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.

Intelligent Automation Research Group

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.
