Precision agriculture and the technologies and techniques embodied within it are dramatically changing the landscape for growers, equipment manufacturers and agrichemical providers alike.
Our multidisciplinary skills in sensor development, wireless communication technologies and fluid dynamics mean we are uniquely placed to enable innovation within the agriculture industry, helping ambitious companies find solutions to the challenge of feeding 10 billion people by 2050.
Transport & infrastructure
Telematics provides a vivid illustration of how technology can influence behaviour, from the low-cost sensors used by the insurance industry to characterise driving styles and encourage better driving to smart infrastructure that can monitor the flow of traffic to reduce congestion and pollution.
Our expertise in digital services, sensors, algorithms and data analytics enables us to deliver products and systems that are both technically and commercially successful.
Profitable, competitive volume manufacturing requires a blend of continuous innovation, process control, engineering and applied science, logistics and informatics.
Our long experience combines world-class engineering with excellence in the technologies powering the Industry 4.0 revolution – sensing, automation, wireless communications and big data.
Using this rare combination of skills, we help our clients improve the profitability of existing facilities and design new equipment and processes.
How we work
Industry has always embraced new technology to improve productivity, reduce costs and create new processes. Today's technological advances encompass not just mechanical and electrical engineering, but also sensors, algorithms, communications, data analysis and machine learning – a truly multidisciplinary challenge.
We have both the breadth and depth of expertise to harness this new technology and deliver breakthrough innovations. We assemble teams of world-class engineers, scientists and consultants specifically selected for each project, combining our skills with our clients’ knowledge of the sector to form highly productive partnerships.

Tech, tools & facilities
We use a range of specialist software for model-based design and simulation. These include MathWorks Matlab and Simulink (including automated code generation and GPU acceleration), dSPACE for model based design, hardware in the loop testing and development of mechatronic systems, and CFD solutions including COMSOL Multiphysics for multiphase flow simulation. Finite element packages like ANSYS Maxwell and HFSS, CST Studio and Microwave Office are used for full-wave, transmission line and magnetostatic simulation. We also employ a dedicated compute cluster for machine learning, neural network training and continuous verification.
Our laboratories provide high accuracy measurement and analysis for the wide range of projects we undertake. Specialist equipment includes a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS), a Matersizer particle size analyser, a Spraytec laser diffraction droplet size analyser, high-speed and thermal imaging cameras and rapid-development custom image analysis software.
