Project Description

Industrial Partner: Siemens

The objective of this project is to investigate the potential for route optimisation for underground power transmission lines. This will involve research into a number of datasets from a variety of sources, as well as routing algorithms and data processing techniques. The end-goal is to produce an automated route planning -support tool that is capable of calculating optimal routes for underground power transmission lines, in order to improve efficiency in the planning of energy projects.

For this project, we are looking for students from any of the following backgrounds:

Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Planning, Geography and Environment
Computer Science
