Dr Akram Alomainy from the Antenna and Electromagnetics Group has teamed up with the Shadow Robot Company to secure funding from the Technology Strategy Board, working on using radio systems and signals for Technologies to Control Advance Telerobotics.

Akram Alomainy from the Antenna and Electromagnetics Group has teamed up with the Shadow Robot Company to secure funding from the Technology Strategy Board under their “Technology Inspired Collaborative R&D” programme, and runs for one year from Summer 2013. The partners will explore how to read the motion of a human, and transfer this into commands for a robot, with greater precision and reliability than existing methods. The project aims to take basic research principles and translate them into real life applications.
