    The First Hydro Company’s (FHC) pumped storage hydro plant at Dinorwig in North Wales is the largest of its kind in Europe and was designed to offer a high rate of response to changes in grid frequency. However, as operational ...
  • Design, modelling, simulation and integration of cyber physical systems: methods and applications 

    Hehenberger, Peter; Vogel-Heuser, B.; Bradley, David A.; Eynard, B.; Tomiyama, T.; Achiche, S. (Elsevier, 2016-07-18)
    The main drivers for the development and evolution of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) are the reduction of development costs and time along with the enhancement of the designed products. The aim of this survey paper is to ...
  • Developing a systems and informatics based approach to lifestyle monitoring within eHealth: part I- technology and data management 

    Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David A.; Cardinaux, Fabien; Hawley, Mark S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-27)
    Lifestyle monitoring forms a subset of telecare in which data derived from sensors located in the home is used to identify variations in behaviour which are indicative of a change in care needs. Key to this is the ...
  • Developing a systems and informatics based approach to lifestyle monitoring within eHealth: part II - analysis & interpretation 

    Brownsell, Simon; Bradley, David A.; Cardinaux, Fabien; Hawley, Mark S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-07-27)
    Lifestyle monitoring as a subset of telecare sets out to use information derived from a range of sensors to put in place a profile of individual behaviour against which changes in behaviour can be compared and referenced ...
  • The development of a rapid-prototyping technique for mechatronic-augmented heavy plant 

    Melling, G.; Bradley, David A.; McKee, H.; Widden, M. B. (Elsevier, 1997-02)
    Telechiric, semi-autonomous and autonomous heavy plant is finding an increasing role in applications such as construction, sub-sea work and decommissioning. There is a need for improved operator interfaces for such plant, ...
  • The development, control and operation of an autonomous robotic excavator 

    Bradley, David A.; Seward, Derek W. (Springer Verlag, 1998-01)
    The excavation of foundations, general earthworks and earth removal tasks are activities which involve the machine operator in a series of repetitive operations, suggesting opportunities for the automation through the ...
