About us

The Centre for Autonomous Systems Technology (CAST), provides expertise in autonomous systems from across the University of Liverpool. We carry out world-class research, provide high-quality training and education and, through the Virtual Engineering Centre, collaborate with a range of companies to develop, analyze, enhance and deploy autonomous systems.

Our combination of research excellence in areas such as software autonomy, verification, agreement technologies, reliability and safety, autonomous sensors, communications, data fusion, machine learning, vehicle dynamics, and aerospace and robotics applications, together with the high fidelity design, simulation and analysis capabilities and technological exploitation provided by the Virtual Engineering Centre at Daresbury make us ideally placed to impact upon research, technology transfer, exploitation, and advanced training in this crucial area.
