Research and professional activities


Autonomous Skill Learning System for Fine Robotic Assembly

This research aims to develop a novel autonomous skill learning system which allow the robot to conduct assembly tasks. This is a potentially fruitful research endeavour with a strong science base for skill learning, as well as wide real-world applications such as assembly or similar manipulative application. The results of the project will provide better understanding of how to deploy robots in industry and domestic applications.
