The purpose of this centre is to research
aspects of Engineering and Computer Science pertaining to their
application to the development of innovative
technologies through application of aspects of material
science, engineering, games technology and computer science to the
realisation of tangible and virtual systems or system parts.
Contexts will be concept valuation, design,
visualisation, simulation, interaction, scenario consideration,
realisation, control/cybermetrics, evaluation or application, as
well other leading edge applications, as they emerge.

The activities of the group encompass:
Lead by: Professor Robert Newman
The group undertakes research which combines sensor networks,
RFID and ambient intelligence to provide original solutions to
real-world problems, particularly in the areas of sustainability,
food and agriculture. It is actively engaged in a number of
pervasive computing systems projects, with funding from the EU,
ERDF and DTC, undertaking work that involves and encompasses gadget
technologies, specifically the investigation of the interaction of
new systems with established computer hardware, software and
interactive systems. Areas of interest include the Internet of
Things, Wireless Sensor Networks, massively mobile and parallel
systems, the theory of concurrency and mixed reality pervasive

The Midlands Simulation Group (MidSim) is based at the
University of Wolverhampton in the Midlands, which is recognised as
the heart of engineering and manufacturing industry in the United
Kingdom. The group is made up of active researchers having a common
interest in numerical modelling and simulation. The aim of the
Midlands Simulation Group is to facilitate high quality research
and development in the area of computer simulation for engineering
and related industries.
Lead by: Professor
This group has initiated a variety of computer
games development related activities and our facilities
incorporateequipment directed specifically towards game research.
This enhances the amount of practical research that can be
undertaken by current researchers, along with undergraduate and
postgraduate students reading computer games development.
The IDMGRG also provides a showcase for the
work undertaken in the field of Digital Game and Interactive Media
and provides support for teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate
levels, along with research - both PhD and Post-Doctoral. It
currently carries out research for the next generation of computer
games with particular emphasis on the use of AI and Games
Simulation for Learning (GSL).
The group provides a shop window for industry
and visiting academics and a vehicle for promoting the activities
of the team and school as a whole. The activities and facilities
within the centre have attracted interest from the games industry
and leading research institutes worldwide.
