Field: Biomedical engineering

Location: St Lucia campus

Type of student: Volunteer/extra-curricular

Brief Synopsis:

Project 1 - Biomedical Engineering Meets Robotics [ARC DP co-funding]: Accurate surgical targeting means less trauma and better outcomes. This project will help build a testbed/phantom (in collaboration with UWA as part of ARC DP160100714) [1]. Though this we will create and validate a novel integrated framework for biomedical systems that can place a needle into a lesion accurately. The need is pressing. Needles are used in over half of all surgical procedures; yet, up to 38% of these are affected by targeting errors. Ref: [1] Ma, J., et al. "Evaluation of accuracy of non-linear finite element computations for surgical simulation: study using brain phantom." Computer methods in biomechanics and biomedical engineering 13.6 (2010): 783-794. 

Project 2 - BYO Robot Project: n this project, a student will bring their own robotic and integrate planning and control to make the robot do more with less! Welcome to the joy of modern robotics!

Project 3 - Project with sound, hearing and mechatronics: Advance a project involving sound, hearing and mechatronics

Prerequisite skills: METR4202 or MECH3200|3300|3410, ELEC3004
