      Probably one of the most high tech stuff I’ve worked with is wind tunnel testing equipment. With that , you can estimate the behaviour and motion of the air inside the tunnel and then use computarised software to try to visualise it (crazy to think right? if air is invisible).

      Regarding making something better, I hope my new wing design to be quite advanced and considered high tech when finished!

      I think making the self driving trains for the Victoria Line was high tech and we are already making it better by making it fit more trains through in an hour.

      I’m also working with cloud services and machine learning to find faults on the railway and get them fixed before delays happen.
