Cyber physical systems
We explore and develop cyber physical systems - mechanisms controlled or monitored by computer-based processes.
Our research group's work reflects society’s increasing dependence on software for control in systems such as transport, telecoms and avionics.
We work on topics including:

We have also designed security systems to help increase resistance to cyber attacks on UK businesses.
Our research themes include:
