At any one time I usually have a few projects on the go and I use this site to document what I get up to. Please browse the menu bar above for articles about current and past projects. Often my projects generate software, usually this will be open source. you can browse and download software here.

A team from Bolton Science and Technology Centre (Cambridge rocketry toolbox users) made an attempt on the U.K. altitude record this month with Black Streak. See the BBC news article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-14760906.

This month I helped to run a Transportation Research Group exhibit at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition. The exhibit was called 21st Centrury Traffic Control: The Invisible Referee. You can visit the exhibit micro site here.

The exhibit featured three interactive displays. Two of these were touch screen computer games, one on traffic light junction control and one on "phantom waves". The third activity was a Scalextric set with traffic control.

The exhibit also featured some of my research on machine learning in junction control. We had about 14,000 visitors to the exhibition and our exhibit was mentioned in a couple of news articles:
