Staffordshire Bridges - Long Term Performance Monitoring using Fibre-Optic Sensors

The Stafford Area Improvement Programme was a joint venture by Atkins, Laing O’Rourke, Volker Rail and Network Rail to remove a bottleneck in the West Coast Main Line that resulted in high- speed trains being impeded by slower local passenger services or by goods trains. To alleviate this...

Building Interactive Smart Acoustics into Buildings and Clothing

Can people who use hearing aids experience the detailed soundscapes of the buildings they are in? This project aimed to build multiple microphone sensors and ways to interrogate the acoustic environment into wearable technologies for hearing-impaired users. These would make the built environment...
