Systems, Simulation and Software
This page contains information about the Systems, Simulation and Software
research that has been carried out and is currently being conducted within
the Electronics Research Group
(ERG). This research includes a range of topics considering various aspects
of system design, software engineering and simulation of complex systems.
The following areas continue to be of specific interest:
- Programming Languages and Software Engineering.
- Object-Oriented Programming Techniques.
- The Construction of Process-Oriented Simulation Models
Some of this work has been performed in conjunction with work in other research
areas (simulation of satellite networks, development of neural network
tools, design of network monitoring utilities, etc).
other languages by allowing their high-level programming constructs to be
This project involved the construct of a data-fusion based system for
the identification of remote vehicles in a naval environment based upon
artificial neural network technology.
- Aberdeen Neural Development Environment (ANDS).
This is a development environment that was created during the research work
for DRA on the Tracker project. ANDS is written in C++ and primarily
supports the Kohonen Feature Map model and its derivatives.
- Rekursiv computer.
The Rekursiv is an innovative object-based computing system that has been
developed by Linn Smart Computing. The Rekursiv system was designed to provide
an efficient (fast) implementation of the Lingo
language and to provide support for
- Simulation survey.
This project is to survey discrete event simulation prototype and simulation
systems for the European Space Agency (ESA).
- WWW at ERG.
The Electronics Research Group was one of the first WWW
servers in the UK. The ERG now provides a NetScape Enterprise server.
into single instructions.
Information about other research activities
is also available from the WWW server. The group has published papers on
all of these activities which may be obtained from the publications database
available on WWW. For further information about any aspect of this research
work please contact Prof. C. T. Spracklen.
