Cyber-Physical Lab

Welcome to the website of the Cyber-physical Lab at Newcastle University. We are a multi-disciplinary team of researchers from across the University who are interested in the design of cyber-physical systems: large systems that combine hardware, software, networking and control, examples including many future “smart” technologies, e.g. Smart Cities, Smart Grids, and Smart Buildings.  You can read more about our work and our current team and project work on this site.
