  Adaptive Learning in brain-robot interactions
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round
This project aims to develop a non-invasive brain-machine interface (BMI) that allows a user to direct a semi-autonomous robot to perform different tasks through brain signals.
  Application of predictive control to fast systems
  Dr J Rossiter
Applications accepted all year round
Predictive control is relatively unwieldy and therefore does not lend itself to applications requiring fast sample rates. However many recent developments have looked at how the algorithm can be implemented both more efficiently in time and with relatively simple coding requirements.
  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Manufacturing
  Dr J Oyekan
Applications accepted all year round
Manufacturing processes potentially generate a lot of data during the manufacture of a product. In most plants, data is either not collected or if collected, there is lack of knowledge on how to derive insights from the data collected.
  Autonomous Scalable Knowledge Extraction and Decision Making for Complex Systems and Dynamic Environments
  Prof L Mihaylova
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD research is focused on multi-sensor data fusion for decision making. The project aims at dealing with large volumes of data and high dimensional systems.
  Autonomous swarms for digitising manufacturing activities
  Dr J Oyekan
Applications accepted all year round
Swarm algorithms offer a number of promises in the form of multiple agents working together to achieve a task, robustness against disturbances and multiple sensing agents to digitise the environment to mention a few.
  Computational efficiency in predictive control
  Dr J Rossiter
Applications accepted all year round
Predictive control requires the online solution of an optimisation problem which carries both a large online computation as well as the overhead of substantial code.
  Control and Signal Processing for Biomechatronics
  Dr S Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
(Important Note. this PhD project is not funded – applicants will need to have acquired their own source of funding to pursue this opportunity.).
  Cooperative Behaviour of Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles
  Prof S Veres
Applications accepted all year round
When a group of autonomous vehicles are on a mission to explore an unknown area and they cannot be remotely controlled, they need to collaborate with each other on gathering the maximum amount of information.
  Cybersecurity in Electricity Grids
  Dr I Esnaola
Applications accepted all year round
The increasing interconnectivity between information systems, communications, and the electricity grid gives rise to numerous benefits, but it also amplifies the impact of potential threats, both intentional and unintentional.
  Developing new adaptive and machine learning algorithms to successfully decode brain signals across subjects
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round
A brain decoding model aims at predicting what sensory stimulus is received (e.g. visual stimuli, different images), which mental state is experienced (i.e.
