Research Expertise


The foundation of my research lays in my Ph.D research which explored the dynamics of decentralised software architecture within field-level manufacturing process monitoring systems. The need for this understanding has been driven by the prediction that these cyber-physical systems will create the next generation of innovative intelligent machines. This research investigates the capability of decentralisation design to provide the core fundamental functionality of process monitoring systems in a new reconfigurable format. The embodiment of this investigation is the design and development of a decentralised architecture for the creation of a reconfigurable process monitoring system within field-level manufacturing.


  • Title
    • SR-TEX
  • Summary
    • The creation of an innovative reconfigurable production line. This system will have interchangeable product testing stations with dedicated RT controllers. Each station is dynamic and can re-configure test setting depending on the part type present in real time. Furthermore, part routine and data collect will be orchestrated by a master controller via TCP, enabling the implementation of high computation analytics and ensure seamless data interoperability between stations. This system is a service oriented production line, which is open, flexible to change, and extensible for future development. Core station operations include: High voltage testing (HIPOT), electrical resistance measurement, thermal imaging and analysis, serial part printing.
