    Curved escalator concept promises to cut energy use by up to half(29/09/2011)

    Professor Jack Levy's 'Levytator', the world’s first escalator capable of following freeform curves, could use half of the energy of conventional designs, according to a new research paper presented at the UK’s Symposium on Lift and Escalator Technologies last week. Unlike traditional escalators, the Levytator utilises a continuous loop of curved modules, which can follow any path upwards, flatten and straighten out, and descend once more, all with passengers on board.

    University sensor research aims to make rail travel more reliable(17/08/2011)

    The disruption to rail travel caused by the breakdown of overhead power lines could become a thing of the past thanks to a new research project at City University London to develop an early warning system to detect defects before they escalate and cause major failures – so-called ‘dewirement’. City’s Professors Ken Grattan and Tong Sun have received £102,000 in EPSRC funding to develop a prototype sensor system with a range of industrial partners.
