The Work Packages: We have designed three broad streams of work to address this project as described below:
Work Package 1:
Minimally Invasive Sensing and Repair
Develop technologies for autonomous defect detection & diagnosis compatible with new and existing infrastructure.
Work Package 2:
Robots in complex city environments
To develop robotic platforms, control strategies, sensing and communication systems to autonomously undertake minimally invasive infrastructure management in complex city environments.
Work Package 3:
Robot – human – natural systems interfaces
Understanding and managing the interactions between our technology, our society and the ecological environment.
