An aging population puts a pressure on health-care workers working with dementia patients globally. A potential solution is to provide care with Socially Assistive Robots (SARs), i.e. robots who help people through social interaction. However, for effective care these SARs must be able to personalize their behavior to individual patients and...

Although conventional actuators like piezoelectric and electrostrictive are efficient, but they required hard wiring, which contaminates the control signal and adds to the weight of the structure. The current study presents a wireless control strategy using photostrictive actuators. Owing to the fortunate combination of photovoltaic effect...

Search-and-rescue (SaR) in unknown environments is a crucial task with life-threatening risks. SaR requires precise, optimal, and fast decisions to be made. Robots are promising candidates expected to execute various SaR tasks autonomously. While humans use heuristics to effectively deal with uncertainties of SaR, optimisation of multiple...

With the number of diagnosed cases rising every year, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is in need of novel therapeutic approaches to counteract the social and motor impairments inflicted by it. In this research, one of such therapeutic approaches, movement therapy (in particular Dance Movement Therapy (DMT)), is combined with the concept of...

The increased adoption of renewable energy generation is reducing the inertial response of the Great Britain (GB) power system, which translates into larger frequency variations in both transient and pseudo-steady-state operation. To help mitigate this, National Grid, the transmission system operator in GB, has designed a control scheme...

This paper discusses the development of a high rate shape memory alloy (SMA) driven actuator. The concept of the actuator was developed to act as aerodynamic load control surface on wind turbines. It was designed as a plate or beam-like structure with prestrained SMA wires embedded off its neutral axis. Moreover, the SMA material was embedded in...

To enhance the effectiveness of engineering simulations in product development, this thesis presents a new approach that enables designers to include human responses and reactions to artefact behaviour in their investigations. It does so without requiring deployment of real human subjects or investing in interactive virtual environments. The new...

We introduce a methodology for modeling and simulating fully virtual human-artifact systems, aiming to resolve two issues in virtual prototyping: (i) integration of distinct modeling and simulation approaches, and (ii) extending the deployability of simulations towards conceptual design. We are going to offer designers a new way of investigating...
