On Friday, 12th October 2018, representatives from University of Nottingham, Cranfield University, and the Bristol Robotics Lab visited our DigiTOP colleagues from the Intelligent Automation Centre at Loughborough University. Throughout the half-day meeting, we held a number of productive discussions to define specific types of work scenarios that DigiTOP research and digital innovations could be […]
We are starting to find out more about our industrial use cases on DigiTOP. There’s lots of talk about “digital” – digital-twin, digital-manufacturing, and digital-learning (from my other work at the University). There are obviously plenty of human factors challenges in most things “digital” as our understanding of the impact of technological on users struggles […]
The leading premise of the Digitop Project is that the work involved in digital manufacturing has evolved away from the physical work that is well understood in ergonomics and human factors, towards cognitive work for which we don’t have clear industry standards and safety guidelines, and where we lack knowledge of the impact of increasingly difficult cognitive […]
Tuesday 11th September 2018 saw our first DigiTOP partner site visit, as representatives from Loughborough University and University of Nottingham visited Manuel Giuliani at Bristol Robotics Laboratory. BRL is a really interesting, collaborative facility, with multiple Universities working together, but also space for start ups, more established companies and short term industrial feasibility studies – […]
A new report, Feasibility of an Immersive Digital Twin has been produced by a team of researchers within the HVM Catapult who work at the cutting edge of manufacturing digitalisation, with a special focus on augmented reality and digital twins.

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton In July 2018 we held the first meeting for all the investigators in the newly-funded DigiTOP project. DigiTOP has at its heart the aim to develop a series of tools and theories that help us to understand and predict the impact […]
