Application of cognitive learning theory to an autonomous unwinder

Indicative Funding
$46,484 over 1 year, in partnership with Beehive Vinyl Products Pty Ltd ($46,484)
Unwinding machines have been used on different materials in the industry. However, they currently require tedious adjustments to suit different materials so that they can achieve the necessary tension and alignment for processing. On the other hand, humans possess the ability to manipulate different materials through cognitive learning. This project, therefore, applies the cognitive learning theories from psychology literature to unwinding machines, enabling them to adjust their tension and alignment for different materials automatically.

Combat apathy in traumatic brain injury patients

Indicative Funding
$25,000 over 2 years
Clinicians often mention apathy as the cause for decreased treatment progression for Traumatic Brain Injury patients. TBI patients with apathy symptoms are less motivated to engage continuously in their therapy schedule. Constant monitoring of patient engagement can help clinicians better measure patient progress and personalise the treatment accordingly. However, current clinical measurements of apathy cannot provide clinicians with continuous feedback. This project offers a novel continuous comprehensive measure of apathy feedback to assist clinicians with assessing and improving patient recovery. This apathy measure will combine traditional clinical measures of apathy with neurophysiological data collected from a virtual reality exoskeleton device.
