spin-off TripTimes - Travel Information System is a commercial grade software developed by our spin-off company INFOHUB Ltd for the Nottingham City Council. The software takes full advantage of the results of the EPSRC-funded research (GR/R32468/01), (EP/C51274X/1), (EP/C51274X/2) and provides an accurate and timely information about traveling options using an arbitrary mix of public transport modes, cycling and walking. The TripTimes has earned the 2006 Bus Industry Award for Enterprise for the Nottingham City Council. Demo-versions of this software are available for 6 other major cities in the UK. TripTimes is also available as a smartphone application TripTimes 2Go
spin-off ATTAIN is a generic precursor of the TripTimes travel information system. The software has been developed by INFOHUB Ltd specifically with a view to offering flexible adaptation to the needs of Local Authorities, transport companies and the general public. The ATTAIN system is typically deployed as a web-based application but it is also available as a stand-alone kiosk-based system and as an SMS text-based system for mobile phones. The system is compatible with national standards on specification of public transport reference locations (NaPTAN) and it also accepts post-codes, road names, landmarks and places of interest as valid origin and destination points for the journey.
spin-off ROAM - Real-time transport Operatins Monitoring system is a commercial grade software developed by INFOHUB Ltd for the Nottingham City Transport. It provides real-time monitoring of the location of public transport vehicles using GPRS communications. The use of the mobile 'phone communications means that the system can be deployed quickly without the additional cost of installation and maintenance of a custom telecommunication system. The ROAM software can be integrated with the TripTimes system to provide enhanced real-time travel plans.
spin-off VTRAM - Video Traffic Monitoring System is a commercial grade software developed for the Nottingham Traffic Control Centre by our spin-off company INFOHUB Ltd. The system is designed to aid traffic operators by analysing real-time video images and raising operator's attention only to anomalous situations on the road. The underpinning research was funded through the EPSRC grant (GR/K16593/01), (EP/C51274X/1), (EP/C51274X/2) and the Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Fellowship (Prof. Tanaka, Konan University, Japan visiting Prof. Bargiela's research laboratory).
spin-off POLLSIM - Urban Air Pollution Simulation is a research grade software facilitating predictive assessment of the spread of air pollution in an urban environment. The software implements 3D modelling of road canyons (with the associated perturbation of the diffusion of pollutants) and the temporal variation of environmental conditions. The software is coded in MS Visual C++ and is available free of charge for academic research. Full documentation of the mathematical model and the user interface to the POLLSIM system is available on-line.
spin-off TCLAS - Telemetry Confidence Limits Analysis is a software arising from the EPSRC-funded research (GR/G18926/01) into interval-based state estimation of systems with structural and information uncertainties. Our novel method of interval-based, computation of flows and pressures, termed Confidence Limits Analysis, has been recognised as state-of-the-art contribution by the ASCE Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management. The software has been deployed in two UK Water Companies to provide: (i) robust, monitoring of flows and pressures, (ii) to facilitate reduction of leakages and (iii) to quantify the merits of various meter placement alternatives.
spin-off Water Network Monitoring - trainer is a self-contained companion software to the main TCLAS system. Its purpose is to provide an operator training facility by allowing the introduction of various disturbances (such as leakages, malfunctioning valves, etc.) in the simulator part of the system and then observing the effects of these disturbances on the results produced by the Confidence Limits Analysis estimator. The software facilitates what-if enquiries that assist the operators in narrowing down the options in case of multiple interacting disturbances in the distribution network.
spin-off GFMM - General Fuzzy Min-Max Classification and Clustering is a research-grade software that combines supervised and unsupervised learning within a single training algorithm. The fusion of clustering and classification enables the software to be used as pure clustering, pure classification, or hybrid clustering-classification. The system exhibits an advantageous property of finding decision boundaries between classes while clustering the patterns that cannot be said to belong to any of the existing classes. The classification results can be crisp or fuzzy. The software is coded in MATLAB (v.4) and is available free of charge for academic research. A description of the algorithm is published in doi:10.1109/72.846747.
spin-off LATGAS - Lattice Gas Model of Nano-particle Self-Assembly is a research-grade software providing a simulation-based environment for the evaluation of the various parameters responsible for a specific self-assembly of nano-particles. The software was developed to help with optimising physical experiments. The simulation environment is highly adaptable and can be used for the study of: (i) the effect of nano-particle concentrations, (ii) the relative sizes of nano-particles in a mix and (iii) evaporation/cooling regimes, that are most likely to deliver the required results in subsequent wet-lab experimentation. The software is coded in MATLAB (2010a) and is available free of charge for academic research. Description of the algorithm is published in doi:10.1016/S1672-6529(13)60200-0 and sample of simulation output of layers of the nano-assembly, its surface and its 3D rendering is provided here.
spin-off STARSIM - N-body Simulation is a research grade software providing a framework for exploration of uncertainties and emergent properties in systems modelling. The software implements a physical model of gravitational interaction between stars in a galaxy and the interaction between the galaxies. Other models, based on the consideration of electrostatic, electromagnetic or atomic forces can be incorporated easily in the software making it suitable for the investigation of uncertainties in simulations at different spatio-temporal scales. The software is coded in MATLAB 4.2 and is available free of charge for academic research. Sample output of the STARSIM: 2000 particles with uniform distribution of mass, Effect of a displacement of a single particle on the evolution of the galaxy, Interaction of galaxies.
