About the Event

Visitors will get the chance to meet researchers from the CONFIRM Centre to learn about their work and to try out some of the technologies that they work on including robotics, machine learning, 3d printing and more. 

No need to book, just pop in to the Atrium of the Western Gateway Building.

Some activities that will be running on the day include:

  • Analysing Worker’s Movements Using Wearable Sensors -Electromyography (EMG), galvanic skin response (GSR), photoplethysmography (PPG) and inertial data is collected during a simple assembly task using wearable sensors.
  • Predicting Worker’s Task to Improve Collaborative Robotics -Hand motion tracing via wearable data glove to develop AI-based strategies to improve human-robot collaboration.

CONFIRM will also demonstrate how the sensors work and will also showcase VR googles for some human-robot interaction simulation.
