Inaugural Lecture by Professor Amin Al-Habaibeh, Professor of Intelligent Engineering Systems
This lecture will introduce you to the concept of Intelligent Engineering Systems. It will highlight several innovative multidisciplinary industrial and research case studies.
- From: Tuesday 16 June 2015, 6.30 pm
- To: Tuesday 16 June 2015, 8.30 pm
- Location: Newton building, Main Entrance, Nottingham Trent University, City Campus, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BU
This lecture will introduce you to the concept of Intelligent Engineering Systems. It will highlight several innovative multidisciplinary industrial and research case studies which include:
- product design
- energy savings in buildings
- wave / wind energy generation analysis
- intelligent cities and buildings
- renewable energy
- condition monitoring of manufacturing processes.
In this presentation Professor Al-Habaibeh will outline the importance of multidisciplinary research in solving practical problems and the challenges involved in this type of research.
Professor Al-Habaibeh will present several research and industrial case studies including:
- the intelligent self-retracting needle, invented at NTU its technology has been development for medical trocar for key hole surgeries
- how water in abandoned coal mines could provide a low cost environmentally-friendly energy source, addressing the issue of low carbon heating and cooling, one of the key energy challenges for the UK
- intelligent cities, a study of crowd density monitoring for intelligent cities and energy applications
- infrared thermography, to detect energy losses and insulation in buildings, and how the technology can be beneficial for addressing energy inefficiency issues.
