Projects

Main Past Projects
Innovation and Knowledge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction
Funded by EPSRC and Innovate UK, the Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) aims to transform the future of infrastructure and construction through smart information – providing decision makers at all points in an asset’s lifetime with the information they need to make well-informed, value-based decisions.
ESPRIT – Elite Sports Performance Research in Training
The UK has internationally leading centres of excellence in pervasive sensing, performance science and medicine, technology and elite performance training. The advances made by these centres have transformed many aspects of modern sports. The combined approach will allow an integration of physiology, biomechanics, performance enhancement and technology. This will benefit not only sport performance but also provide an impetus for advances in personal healthcare.
ALLOW EnsemblesThe recent advances in pervasive technologies enable construction of large-scale socio-technical systems which tightly interweave humans and their social structures with technology. The overall goal of the EU FP7 project Allow Ensembles is to develop a new design principle and establish a new foundational framework for collective adaptive systems (CAS) based on the concept of cell ensembles. The framework has been validated in an integrated urban mobility scenario.
makeSense – Easy Programming of Wireless Sensor NetworksSensor networks are expected to play a critical role in the next computing revolution. However, industry adoption is hampered because sensor networks are currently very difficult to program. The EU FP7 project makeSense intended to drastically improve the ease of wireless sensor network programming by allowing programmers to express high-level objectives, and leave the low-level details to the compiler and run-time system.

PROTECTRAIL – The Railway-Industry Partnership for Integrated Security of Rail TransportThe main objective of the EU-funded PROTECTORAIL project was to develop an integrated system to improve the security of rail transportation through better protection of railways and trains, and to reduce disparity in security between European railway systems.
