Control Systems Research Group

Focusing upon the application of control and systems science, the Control Systems Research Group, employs a range of established theoretical techniques to provide solutions to industrial problems across rail, aerospace, energy and automotive sectors.

Our Aim

The group uses modern control techniques and modelling expertise to improve efficiency and accuracy of systems involved in a range of areas, from transportation and energy to automation. Working closely with industry partners, the team ensures their research remains relevant and applicable to real-world problems faced.

Current examples include a redundant track switch designed by the Loughborough team, Repoint, which received several awards from a range of bodies in the engineering community, and is currently being developed for commercial deployment. The group is also active in several projects investigating the decarbonisation of road and rail transport.
