About the Project
More recently approaches to bestow tactile feelings have focussed on flexible and conformable e-skin wrapped around the external surface. An issue with these approaches is that because wear and tear they require frequent replacement of sensors or e-skin, which makes these solutions less affordable. The proposed approach is free from such challenges as the sensing is integrated/embedded in the limb structure. This feature makes the proposed hand more attractive for daily use. The low-cost additive manufacturing and digital technology route will be adopted in this work. The rapid prototyping tools such as 3D scanning and 3D printing, make it easy to meet the requirement related to customization and replacements.
The student will receive full training in advanced additive manufacturing and sensing. In addition, training in characterization and measurement of sensing materials will be provided. Working alongside post-doctoral researchers, the student will integrate various sensor modules to demonstrate high performance sweat monitoring device. As the BEST group at Glasgow University has strong collaborative linkages to leading global industrial and academic partners, the student will have the opportunity to showcase their talents to potential future employers. This PhD is supported by Shadow Robot Company.
