University explores latest developments in Assistive Robotics

An international conference at the University of Ulster’s Magee campus has shed new light on pioneering scientific research that will give disabled people a better quality of life. The International UKIERI Workshop on the Fusion of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and Assistive Robotics examined international advances that are harnessing robotic science and the computer-aided power of brainwaves in ways that will improve healthcare and independence for people who are disabled.

 

In exploring the latest developments in brain-computer interface (BCI) technology and assistive robotics (AR) the researchers hope to map out ways of integrating and moulding the two disciplines so as to improve the lives of people with severe phyiscal disabilities. Read more here.
