Department: Comparative Biomedical Sciences

Campus: Hawkshead

Research Centres: Structure & Motion Laboratory

After successfully defending his PhD in 2011, Kyle has stayed with the Structure &  Motion Laboratory as a  Post Doc. His PhD research focused on developing motion tracking systems for humans and animals.

Kyle graduated from the University of Southampton in 2004 with an MEng in Aerospace Engineering. Prior to moving to the RVC he worked in California for TiNi Aerospace in the manufacture of space-qualified, shape memory alloy actuation devices. Kyle also worked as a developer in central Canada for MicroPilot, a world-leader in miniature UAV autopilots.

Kyle is currently studying towards a PhD at the RVC, supervised by Alan Wilson and in partnership with Forsberg Services. His research will focus on the development and deployment of low-cost, lightweight systems for precision motion tracking of humans and animals. This will primarily involve utilisation of MEMS inertial sensors and GPS, and their integration using sensor fusion techniques to achieve an optimum solution for the dynamic environments experienced.

Following his experience in industry and related academic projects, Kyle became interested in guidance and navigation, micro unmanned vehicles, and sensor fusion.
