Contributions and risks of smart urban technology-driven approaches to sustainable development

The prospects of smart urban technologies range from expanding infrastructure capacity to generating new services, from reducing emissions to engaging the public, from minimising human errors to improved decision-making, and from supporting sustainable development to improving performances of commercial enterprises and cities. The most popular technologies in the context of cities include, but are not limited to, internet-of-things (IoT), autonomous vehicles (AV), Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), bigdata, 5G/6G, robotics, blockchain, cloud computing, 3D printing, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), digital twins and …

Advanced artificial intelligence based ultrasound imaging applications

Our research in the space of advanced quantitative medical imaging is investigating how to use ultrasound as a real time volumetric mapping tool of human tissues, to guide in a reliable and accurate way complex medical procedures1. We have developed several novel methods which make use of the most cutting-edge artificial intelligence technology2. For example, to show where the treatment target and the organs at risk are at all times during treatments in radiation therapy3, 4; or to inform robots …

The Challenge of Neural Interfaces to Law

Dr Scott Kiel-Chisholm is looking for PhD/MPhil candidates considering the legal dimensions from the development and adoption of neural interfaces. We are interested in looking for candidates looking at civil and criminal implications, comparative legal analysis and the legal and quasi-legal implications of neural interfaces for supra-legal institutions like the WTO and the EU. This topic is led by the QUT School of Law within the Datafication and Automation of Human Life research group.

A robot demonstrator for event cameras

Event cameras are bio-inspired sensors capable of providing a continuous stream of events with low latency, and high dynamic range. Opposed to capturing the whole scene at fixed time intervals like conventional cameras, each pixel in an event camera operates independently from the other pixels and responds to changes in the perceived brightness. Recently we proposed the use of event cameras for robot localization. However, the demonstration was limited to a static dataset. In this research project, you will have …

Augmented reality (AR) applications for robotic scene understanding

Augmented reality (AR), or mixed reality, has become a mature technology with many possible practical applications in manufacturing, retail, navigation and entertainment.We're interested in using AR to support human-robot interaction. In this project, you'll investigate how a human can use AR to better understand how a robot perceives the world and to understand the robot's intentions.

Deep learning for robotics in open-world conditions

To fully integrate deep learning into robotics, it's important that deep learning systems can reliably estimate the uncertainty in their predictions. This allows robots to treat a deep neural network like any other sensor and use the established Bayesian techniques to fuse the network’s predictions with prior knowledge or other sensor measurements or to accumulate information over time.Deep learning systems typically return scores from their softmax layers that are proportional to the system’s confidence. They are not calibrated probabilities and …

Degradation-conscious charging of lithium-ion batteries

The adoption of electric vehicles and grid storage systems by the present day consumers has been phenomenal. The most critical issue with the lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery is how to manage its degradation.Understanding battery degradation mechanisms and the development of charging strategies to optimally manage battery degradation is very important. There are a number of important issues that need to be addressed carefully, such as thermo-electrochemical modelling of large battery packs and fast charging protocols.

Gesture-based control of underwater helper-bots

Underwater robotic systems have been in use for several decades. In recent years, various groups have been adding manipulators and other payloads to increase their utility. However, their role has primarily been monitoring and mapping the oceans without human interaction.The next frontier is to have human divers and robotic system collaborate safely and productively in the same space to jointly complete complex tasks. This will involve the robotic system directly understanding and interacting with the diver in a non-verbal manner. …

Coordinated control of multi-robot systems for environmental management

Single robotic systems can't accurately measure dynamic processes and map large areas in challenging environments. However, managing multiple robotic systems simultaneously poses many challenges around coordination and control. This is particularly true in environments where there's a lack of communication with the system. This project will explore multi-robot swarming and formation control to monitor, manage and track large-scale environmental phenomena.In this project, you will explore multi-robot swarming and coordinated formation control for dynamic process monitoring, target tracking and coordinated mapping. …
