Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships that will support six (6) research projects starting 1 October 2022. One of these projects is “AI (Artificial Intelligence) enabled autonomous robots integrated with an intelligent sensing system for the non-disruptive inspection of utility and sewage systems” led by Dr Md Nazmul Huda in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
Traditional manual maintenance of pipelines which requires digging of ground to get access to pipelines is ineffective because of safety issues, high cost and limited human vision. Thus, serious faults are often missed in the pipeline which causes failures such as leaks in the system. Thus, this project aims to design and develop AI (Artificial Intelligence) enabled autonomous robots integrated with an intelligent sensing system for the non-disruptive inspection of utility and sewage systems.
The applicant will be required to demonstrate his/her strong programming skills and experience in robotics (experimental, modelling and/or analytical experience), machine vision and machine learning algorithms, and CAD software such as Solidworks or equivalent. You should be a highly motivated individual and possess a strong sense of curiosity. The ability to study independently, think critically and collaborate with others is essential.
