As a quick overview, Aston University are involved with the Big Data Corridor, a project run by Birmingham City Council, with the purpose to "create a new disruptive economy where SMEs use data to create new applications, services and experiences to serve personalised demand for businesses and communities within the corridor".

They have also pioneered work in sensors including SMART structures (i.e. structures such as buildings, bridges, transportation, machinery etc. which have a "nervous system" for monitoring their internal stress and temperature) and gas and pollution sensors to create the smart city of the future.

The team has a wide array of technology to offer and access to major projects and companies in the region. They will work with you to help you grow your business by giving you access to and showing you how you can benefit from technology and the grants available.

The outcome is a win-win-win scenario where you win more business, Aston win by seeing their technology in commerical use and major projects and companies win by using the latest solutions to improve their efficiencies and put them ahead in the marketplace.
