Making a miniaturised, customised wearable sensor system
A new research project is developing miniature physiological sensors and decoders to improve communication between human brains and robots.
Prof. Francesca Iacopi, from the School of Electrical and Data Engineering, is one of a team of researchers embarking on a two-year $1.2 million project with the Department of Defence to examine how truly cutting-edge technologies could use brainwaves to command and control autonomous vehicles.
UTS is the only university to receive funding in the latest tranche from the Department’s Defence Innovation Hub. A team led by Distinguished Professor CT Lin and Professor Francesca Iacopi will integrate cognition neuroscience and device engineering to develop wearable technology.
