Mapping Software Systems based on Domains
This project is based on inter-disciplinary research: on the one hand, it is a Computer Science project, where a good understanding of software programming is needed. On the other hand, it is a Biolog...
Managing collaborative logistics
Logistics and transportation are important part in supply chain management. Collaboration among different organizations involved in logistics and transportation is the key to achieve the economies of ...
Developing Squeeze-Film Levitation
Squeeze-film levitation (SFL) is a means of separation and non-contact movement of one surface over another, e.g. conveying and bearings. Consequently, there is no wear, almost no friction (except for...
Optimisation methods for (deep) neural networks
A machine learning algorithm can be viewed as a mapping between inputs and outputs, with the scope of optimising and tuning the parameters that describe it so that the performance is improved. The los...
Multiscale Simulation of Fluid Dynamics
A project at the interface between Physics and Engineering, molecular simulation has the potential to provide new insights into the field of fluids dynamics, a vital and very active research area esse...
Intelligent Mobile Robotics System
Research on a six legged mobile robotics which is currently used in the research labs. The robot can be equipped with sonar sensors, vision system and communication system. In mobile robot research, t...
