Building virtual environments for robots using NVIDIA simulator ISAAC

Conducting experiments using real robots can be difficult sometimes due to the restrictions on space and actions.Simulators can provide an answer to these concerns in the early stages of development. We recognise that real world testing is crucial as results in a simulator do not always reflect results in reality.ISAAC is a new robot simulator that shows promise in this space. However it currently only offers a few Unreal Engine environments.In this project, you will add more environments to this …

Dynamical systems and theoretical biology

Numerous physical and biological systems involve processes of diffusive and/or advective transport (for example, pollutant dispersal, insect pest infestation, heat) and/or reaction (such as interaction, growth, decay) that vary over space and time. As such they can best be described by coupled systems of partial differential equations.Projects are available that focus on aspects of constructing and validating mathematical models and simulations of tissue growth and repair problems, such as epidermal and corneal wound healing, bone fracture healing and tumour growth.Mathematically, …

Tank commander mixed reality game

The premise of this project is to develop a mixed reality experience tank commander simulator, in a similar vein to War Thunder.However, the end goal is to provide a virtual reality experience tied to radio controlled tanks by mounting a 360 camera to the cupola of a 1/16 scale model tank. See this YouTube video for an example.The project will commence as an initial Unity-based VR experience, with a voice commanded model tank in VR. The intention is to lay …

Molecular dynamics simulations of Tau peptides

Globular proteins adopt a well-defined structure to carry out their function. A large fraction of the eukaryotic proteome consists of polypeptide segments that are not likely to form a defined three-dimensional structure, but are nevertheless functional and are referred to as intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs).IDPs are often found to be involved in crucial signaling and regulatory functions in cells. IDPs are frequently associated with human diseases, in particular neurodegenerative diseases and viral infections like hepatitis C. These IDPs might acquire …
