Loughborough University’s Control Systems Research Group

This group focuses on the application of control and systems science. It employs a range of established theoretical techniques to provide solutions to industrial problems across rail, and other sectors.

The Loughborough University Control Systems Research Group uses modern control techniques and modelling expertise to improve the efficiency and accuracy of systems involved in a range of areas, from transportation and energy to automation. Working closely with industry partners, the team ensures research is relevant and applicable to real-world problems.

For example, a redundant track switch designed by the Loughborough team, Repoint, has received several awards from a range of bodies in the engineering community. It is currently being developed for commercial deployment. And the group is also active in several projects investigating the decarbonisation of road and rail transport.
