PhD in Direct Fibre Optic Shape Sensing for Robotics
Dr Tom Charrett, Prof R P Tatam
14 January 2019
Outline of area the project relates to. As part of a wider program of ongoing research at Cranfield into the development of novel instrumentation for manufacturing robotics, this studentship will investigate the application of Direct Fibre Optic Shape Sensing (DFOSS) in robotics.
Characterising the mechanisms of optic flow parsing
Dr P Warren, Dr R Champion
Applications accepted all year round
Humans move in their environment. As a result complex patterns of motion called optic flow arise on the retina. It is well known that the brain has regions that are sensitive to optic flow, however there is some debate about their functional role.
