Current activities

Iñigo Fernández del Amo started as a PhD student in Cranfield University in November 2016 with a scholarship from Babcock International. He focuses his research in the use of Augmented Reality (AR) and Semantic Web (SW) for knowledge capture in maintenance diagnosis. Iñigo's primary interest is to study innovative software methods to capture maintenance experts knowledge and reduce cost of AR's industrial implementation. 

Besides his PhD research, Iñigo has co-supervised various MSc thesis and group projects that involve the implementation of AR and Digital Twins in the industrial workplace using SW technologies. His overall aim is to enable the transformation of operative roles into a source of valuable information for through-life engineering services using innovative visualisation and data-structuring technologies.
