A position is available to work on an exciting multi-disciplinary projectATRACT, which stands for A Trustworthy Robotic Autonomous system to support Casualty Triage.

This position is funded through an EPSRC Grant of over £850,000 and the project aims to contribute to the UK's security and defence strategy including:

  • Creating an innovative drone-based trustworthy robotic autonomous platform to proactively collect vital sign data from casualties
  • Novel multimodal-AI to estimate casualties condition in real-time from noisy, incomplete multimodal data
  • Technology-focused communication to frontline medics to prioritise and focus their attention on soldiers with the most acute needs
  • Minimise risk of medics being attacked whilst moving between casualties.
  • The aspect of the project you will mainly work on relates to secure multi- model vital sing data collection and communication in a contested battlefield. This will involve (i) autonomous drone system for searching grounded soldiers and data collection in a contested battlefield, (ii) re-enforcement learning-based active sensing policy from expert medic demonstrations (iii) Secure multimodal vital sign data collection and communication from drone to the base-station. The work will be achieved by working with and supporting the project team based at Brighton and with the other project partners at Edge Hill University, Loughborough University and University of Portsmouth.

    In order to be successful in this post, you should have:

    It is desirable, but not essential that you have (i) practical drone test experience with its communication systems, (ii) practical experience in the building and/or installation of drone communication system,(iii) knowledge of wireless data acquisition and analysis and (iv).
