The Instrumentation, Control and Embedded Systems (ICES) research group comprises a mixture of well experienced and young and vibrant academics from the School of Engineering and Digital Arts and the School of Physical Sciences. The team works in three complementary research themes - Instrumentation, Control and Embedded Systems. The group has made considerable endeavours to solve challenging scientific and technological problems with a range of industrial organisations through applied research programmes funded through the UK Government and also with many European countries through EU-funded research programmes.
The group's expertise lies primarily in sensors, instrumentation, image processing, signal processing, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), neural networks, robust control and estimation, and embedded system design. Since 2001 the group has published more than 150 peer reviewed journal papers and over 360 refereed conference papers in addition to 26 patents. More than 30 PhD research students have graduated from the group since 2001.
