  Trust In Autonomous Vehicles
  Prof J Giacomin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Problem Statement. Several recent research studies have suggested that “lack of trust” is one of the major factors which is slowing the commercial introduction of autonomous vehicles.
  Naturalness of autonomous vehicles
  Prof J Giacomin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Problem Statement. Naturalness and simplicity are well known prerequisites of success in product, system and service design. Autonomous vehicles have, however, few precedents in human history and are thus generally unfamiliar to people.
  Enhancing passenger safety through path planning and control of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles
  Dr B Lenzo, Dr A Holloway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Traffic-related fatalities are the eighth leading cause of death worldwide, ahead of HIV/AIDS, and the first leading cause of death for children and young adults between 5 and 29 years old.
  Machine learning for Autonomous and Interconnected Vehicles
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr ARA Abdullatif, Dr S Kabir, Dr I Ghafir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyber-Physical Mechatronic Systems such as autonomous vehicles, and intelligent transportation rely heavily on machine learning techniques for ever-increasing levels of autonomy.
  Geometric Control of Autonomous Vehicle
  Prof W Holderbaum
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will focus primarily on an Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. The general research theme involves theoretical and experimental study of Underwater Vehicles with emphasis on advanced motion control for unmanned marine vehicles.
  Reliability Modelling of Complex Autonomous Systems
  Research Group: Advanced Automotive Analytics Research Institute
  Prof F Campean, Prof D Neagu, Dr S Kabir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Smart engineered systems that make decisions and take actions autonomously are becoming commonplace in many applications, such as self-driving cars and drones.
  Safety and Optimisation of Autonomous Vehicles
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr JP Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is increasingly clear that a structured approach using artificial intelligence (AI) components operating within a framework of conventional logic will deliver autonomous vehicles (AVs), which have the potential to benefit the world by increasing traffic efficiency, reducing pollution and eliminating up to 90% of traffic accidents.
  Effective Fusion of Spatially and Temporally Sparse Data for Maritime Autonomous Systems
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr J Downes
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  How do real-world engineers understand hazards and develop safety requirements for autonomous systems?
  Dr R Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research areas. Autonomous and self-adaptive systems; Cyber Physical Systems; Safety analysis, system safety; Safety of autonomous and self-adaptive systems; Software testing.
  Compressed learning techniques for next generation connected autonomous mobility
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr Y Ko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exploding data traffic is expected to grow at around daily 3 Petabytes by 2022, by a range of the emerging autonomous mobility applications such as connected autonomous vehicles, healthcare autonomy, warehouse robots, and AR/VR entertainment.
  Autonomous learning with Artificial Intelligence - (studied entirely by Distance Learning)
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M Giannaccini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autonomous learning has become one of the latest buzzwords in today’s artificial intelligence and robotics. All the same, to realise the behaviour of even the simplest creature like a unicellular organism in an artificial agent remains extremely challenging with current artificial intelligence techniques.
  Testing Robotics and Autonomous Systems Using Search-based Techniques
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr RE Lefticaru, Prof D Neagu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) are becoming indispensable for human productivity and it is estimated that there will be a £13 billion global market for RAS by 2025.
  Sub-THz Radar sensing of the Environment for future Autonomous Marine platforms (STREAM)
  Dr D A Robertson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will complement the 3.5 year STREAM project, a £1.5M EPSRC funded collaboration between the University of St Andrews and the University of Birmingham.
  New continuous learning driven techniques for evolvable cross-layered autonomous networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr Y Ko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will research into new technical innovations that can embrace today’s transfer machine learning advances into a process of designing and controlling cross-layered (i.e., PHY and MAC) networks with autonomous mobility nodes in a range of connected autonomous mobility applications.
  Future scenarios for the deployment of autonomous vehicles in urban environments.
  Dr M Beecroft, Dr C Cottrill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type
