Investigating the interference from overlapping Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) propellers during hovering flight. It highlights a region of beneficial overlap, which has the potential to be advantageous to a wide range of UAVs.
Marianna Cavada, Miles Tight and Chris Rogers contributed a chapter on ‘A smart city of Singapore – Is Singapore truly smart?’ as part of ‘Smart City Emergence: Cases From Around the World’, Editor Leonidas Anthopoulos.
A report on experiments with a hyperspectral camera to identify cracks due to exposure of the interior material of road pavement, which have different chemical composition to surface materials. Presented at ISARC 2019, Canada.
This paper presents the development of a tendon-driven continuum robot segment with a modular design, simple construction and significant lifting capabilities. ICRA 2019, Montreal.
A book chapter by Chris Rogers (pages 517-522) in “The Mathematics of Urban Morphology” Luca D’Acci (Ed.) 2019, published by Birkhäuser, on the mathematical challenges for sustainable and resilient infrastructure and urban systems.
Resin-based photocurable polymer materials for additive manufacturing were characterized for their comprehensive dielectric properties. For all photopolymer samples tested, the dielectric constants and loss tangents lay in a range useful for many applications.
This paper presents a 220-320-GHz hemispherical lens antenna fabricated using photopolymer-based additive manufacture and directly fed by the standard WR-3 rectangular waveguide without any additional waveguide extension.
This demonstrator shows how an algorithm developed for human-agent coordination can be used to coordinate human actors on the ground and unmanned aerial vehicles in a rescue mission. AAMAS 2018, Stockholm.
Bridge bearings are a critical component of a bridge and require regular visual inspection to ensure the safe operation of the bridge throughout its life. However, the bearings are often located in spaces that are… Read More
This paper shows how civil engineers can build better cities through a deeper understanding of the future benefits, resilience and value of their proposed urban infrastructure solutions. Three practical, foresight-based assessment methods are introduced and,… Read More
Editorial introducing a Special Collection of 34 selected papers on the topic of Applied System Innovation from IEEE ICASI 2016 and other high-quality papers that fit the aims and scope of the collection.
Richard J. Jackson, Adam Wojcik, Mark Miodownik This paper describes work to design, build and test an asphalt 3D printer, we believe the first of its kind. Key findings include: 3D printed asphalt is more… Read More
