Autonomous Street Light Simulator

StreetlightSim has been produced as part of Sei Ping Lau's, a member of my research team, PhD research project. The simulator is an open source streetlight simulation environment based on the well-known OMNet++ and SUMO tools. It features a customisable road traffic pattern, described by the road traffic distribution according to different times of day and annual average daily traffic flow (AADF), and can be easily extended to different streetlight networks using OpenStreetMap and JOSM.

StreetlightSim has been developed specifically to evaluate Autonomous and Adaptive Street Lighting Schemes. We have used it to evaluate the performance of various street lighting schemes based on an actual streetlight network in terms of their energy efficiency and utility to road users. You can find out more about the research by downloading our paper:

Alex presenting his research at IET WSS 2012
Today Alex presented his research at the IET conference on Wireless Sensing Systems (WSS). His paper was on the topic of "Adaptive Sampling in Context-Aware Systems: A Machine Learning Approach", and is a method he is researching to attempt to maximise the usefullness of images captured by the DejaView system, while minimising energy consumption. Alex's presentation was recorded, and his slides and a video of the presentation can be watched on the IET website by clicking here.

Press Coverage for Instrumented Crutches
14th November 2010
Geoff Merrett and the Instrumented Crutch
My research on instrumented forearm crutches received a fantastic amount of press coverage and public interest. A selection of the online coverage that it received, at least that which I have spotted, is listed below: BBC News Website BBC South Today [Video] Local BBC news for the South of England The Daily Mail - Download PDF British tabloid newpaper The Southern Daily Echo Local newspaper 'Frontline' Magazine The Chartered Society of Physiothera...
