About the Project

Robotic technologies have been applied to automate simple and repetitive industrial tasks to serve the aim of mass production.

It is expected that the next generation robotics can be adopted in more complex and uncertain tasks such as maintenance, cleaning, repair, remanufacturing and recycling. These tasks have been difficult to robotise because they may involve complex contacts and unknown physical interactions.

This PhD project is set to address key challenges in the development of future industrial robotic and automation systems. The objectives of the project include:

1. To investigate the mechanics of automated processes and robotic components

2. To develop and demonstrate novel robotic processes, devices and tools

3. To research into integration techniques and system designs that can improve the reconfigurability and cost-effectiveness of robotic systems

Applications are sought from highly motivated students graduating with first degree (2:1 or higher) in Engineering (and preferably a Master degree). For further information, please contact Dr Yongjing Wang ([Email Address Removed]).
