Announcements and news


Big congratulations to Mo Qu on his paper ‘Robotic Disassembly Platform for Disassembly of a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle Battery: A Case Study‘ being published by Automation


Many congratulations to Mr Oliver Kamperis on passing his PhD Viva with minor corrections!  Soon to be Dr!


Our team was recently awarded a new project ‘Robotic skill transfer and augmentation for contact-rich tasks in manufacturing (STAMAN) ‘. 

This £1M collaborative project funded by the EPSRC involves the University of Birmingham and the University of Sheffield, supported by nine industrial partners including world-leading companies Airbus and Caterpillar, as well as two UK national High-Value Manufacturing Catapult Centres: MTC and AMRC. Details to follow in the near future. Many congratulations to Dr Mo Qu and Dr Feiying Lan who made early-stage investigations into the topic and laid the foundation of this new project.


Big congratulations to Farzaneh Goli on her paper ‘Jamming problems and the effects of compliance in dual peg-hole disassembly‘ being published by Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
