Research Funding

The following are current funded research projects taking place within the research division:

Early Career Fellowship
Principal Investigator: Andrew BUCHAN
Funding source: EPSRC Engineering and Physcial Sciences Research Council

Launch & Recovery Enhanced Sea States
Principal Investigator: Guang LI
Funding source: E.P.S.R.C.

WormBot
Principal Investigator: Kaspar ALTHOEFER
Co-investigator(s): Jelizaveta KONSTANTINOVA
Funding source: Innovate UK

In this project, in collaboration with our partner, Q-bot, a London-based robotic company, we aim to design, manufacture and validate robust, soft robots to remotely apply insulation below the ground floor of domestic dwellings.

Organic Rankine Cycle
Principal Investigator: Huasheng WANG
Funding source: Royal Society

Adaptive hierarchical model predictive control of wave energy converter
Principal Investigator: Guang LI
Funding source: WES Wave Energy Scotland

iGrasp
Principal Investigator: Kaspar ALTHOEFER
Co-investigator(s): Jelizaveta KONSTANTINOVA
Funding source: Innovate UK

In this project we focus on developing the miniaturised tactile and proximity sensing capabilities for a low-cost and robust way of grasping. We focus on a system that keeps learning the best way to grasp a multitude of different objects. Starting from a good grasp configuration, our system will refine autonomously that configuration each time an object is grasped.
