  Smart cyber-physical systems for multimodal human-robot collaboration
  Dr U Martinez Hernandez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Robotics interacting and collaborating seamlessly with humans is a notion that has captivated society and industry for decades.
  Artificial Intelligence for the Control of Upper Limb Prosthetics
  Dr B Metcalfe, Dr D Zhang, Dr U Martinez Hernandez, Dr B Ainsworth
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of rehabilitation and assistive robotics has developed numerous upper and lower limb prosthetic devices for people that have lost their limbs.
  Biomechanical modelling of the human hand for improved control of myoelectric prostheses
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr M Giannaccini
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of a hand or greater part of the upper limb can mean a devastating loss of function for an individual. Myoelectric prostheses are robotic hands intended for replacement of the natural hand in cases of hand amputation or limb difference.
