Smart Infrastructure

Developing and protecting the next generation of smart infrastructure.

We are building the world's first open‐source multi‐data‐channel stock market ecosystem, which will allow us to study and predict stock market irregularities and financial fraud.

We have developed a pioneering solution to provide automomous vehicles with a fast, reliable and lightweight distributed safety protocol in road networks.

Our research on the Internet of Things includes the largest prototype of a low‐cost IoT system for border security, and the world’s first IoT security auditing toolkit.

Our cyber‐security research includes a novel application of cryptographic techniques to combat the counterfeiting of drugs and other high value items. We are also working with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to improve the resilience of the city in the face of increased cyber‐threats.
