Our multidisciplinary research aims to develop intelligent automated and robotic systems for the non-destructive testing and inspection of large critical infrastructure, often located in remote and hazardous environments.

Our work incorporates the following research areas:

We research and develop wall climbing, swimming, pipe crawling and mobile robots to deploy a range of NDT techniques for industrial inspection in the nuclear, petro-chemical, food processing, energy and aviation industries.

Our expertise is in ultrasound modelling, mechatronics, robotics, control engineering, magnetics, orthotics and telecommunications.

Mechatronics, Robotics and Non-Destructive Testing Research (MrNDT) contributes to research in Materials Engineering (ME).
