Developing an autonomous cobot system for shared assembly task
The project seeks to develop an autonomous cobot system for shared assembly task completion and optimisation. The will involve extensive research within the field of AI with focus on reinforcement learning for developing “Learning from Demonstration” (LfD) capability and autonomy.
Innovation for Dementia Care: Evaluation of Digital Health and Wellbeing Apps in ‘Real-Life’ Living Labs
The project will explore the potential for digital innovations to improve health and wellbeing for a frail elderly population, including people living with dementia. Interventions will be evaluated in high-tech ‘living lab’ environments to assess whether they produce improvements in residents’ quality of life and enable better support provision by carers. Secondary outcomes measured will include positive impact on activities of daily living, improved cognition, and reduced health & care resource use.
Development of wearable technology to detect dehydration in older adults
This research will explore the feasibility and design of body worn devices to detect hydration levels and feed back information to care staff. The interdisciplinary project will involve working with older people and their carers to co-design, develop and evaluate suitable technology that is informative and acceptable to the end users.
