MATTHEW NANCEKIEVILL BEng
Doctoral Research Student
His research has focussed on developing an understanding of the effects of gamma exposure on common commercial components used in embedded systems. This is being applied to the design and prototyping of an underground robot capable of manoeuvring in 3D space. Current technology is limited to up-and-down or side-to-side movement sub-soil.
Developing the next generation of nuclear decommissionning robotics research. Working in partnership with the nuclear sector and other unverisities around the UK and EU to reduce risk, accelerate productivity an reduce long term costs .
