My specialist area of expertise is the design and development of real time instrumentation for industrial, automotive and laboratory use. This is best summed up as 'Measurement Automation & Control'. My research interests are the development of new electromechanical and electronic measuring equipment, and telematic solutions for industry.
Most of my research projects are based around the application of microcontrollers (e.g. PIC and 8051 architecture CPUs) to solve measurement and control problems. A number of my software and hardware designs are in production, including the control panels for Stoves gas cookers, Caradon Mira's Advantage shower range, Siemens VDO's fleetlogger and CAN product range, Quarndon Electronics CAN Controller units, the 'Fishphone' GSM telematic sensor/controller, Thorlux Lighting's distributed monitoring systems for lighting, and the Linear Skin Rheometer used to measure the visco-elastic properties of human skin.
I work part time for DMU. I also work as a self employed freelance design engineer in my specialist fields, offering design and consultancy service to industry world-wide.
