The University of Salford’s THINKlab has developed a digital platform which allows a range of heterogenous sensor networks to be integrated so project partners can effectively monitor rising rivers and rainfall which can lead to floods and landslides. The digital platform will be used in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Pakistan, three low-middle income countries whose
THINKlab Director Terrence Fernando speaks to Abigail Tomkins from The Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (CICES) about how the 4D Simulation tool designed and developed on Unreal Engine is helping to improve rail track renewal programs.
THINKlab are excited to be working with University of Salford partners to develop the second phase of the Virtual Chernobyl virtual reality digital programme.
THINKlab handover the MOBILISE digital platform to Sri Lanka’s Disaster Management Centre and National Building Research Organisation
The MOBILISE team visited Sri Lanka’s Disaster Management Centre (DMC) and National Building Research Organisation (NBRO) to ensure the smooth handover of the new MOBILISE digital platform for strengthening their disaster risk reduction activities.
