The group is led by Roberto Palacin and specialises in research from a railway systems engineering point of view.
Key areas of research include the following:
Current projects include:
CleanER-D aims to develop, improve and integrate emissions reduction technologies for diesel locomotives and rail vehicles.
SafeCap+ SafeCap for integrated optimum capacity, safety and energy strategies at multiple nodes
Viajeo PLUS The goal of Viajeo PLUS is to benchmark outstanding examples of solutions for innovative and green urban mobility in Europe, Latin America, China and Singapore and subsequently facilitate the uptake of these solutions. Dr. Gareth Evans of the Transport Operations Research Group of the School of Civil Engineering is also employed on this project.
