A short description of Abraham's PhD project: To use novel visualization and cognitive technologies to design and augment the complex decision support and decision-making tools as part of cyber-physical control systems for advanced manufacturing applications, such as in additive manufacturing (3D -printing). The focus of our research will be to explore, develop and utilize state-of-the-art Computer-Aided Design / Manufacturing (CAD / CAM) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies in modern manufacturing applications. The research will exploit ideas from advanced visualisation, real-time data processing and analysis, machine learning and intelligent product design.

  • Aswin K Ramasubramanian (Male) 

A short description of Aswin's PhD project: My research primarily focuses on the development of a digital twin of human robot collaborative process that involves modelling of the process by combining multimodal sensor data fusion. Furthermore, my research focuses on the development of artificial intelligence based applications for novel workplace monitoring and development of assistive and safe human-robot collaboration for manufacturing processes. My work involves real-time tracking and monitoring of operators on the shop-floor using various sensor devices and providing feedback and the status of the operator that would facilitate a safer human-robot collaboration.
