The Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH) has launched a new website.
It contains full information about the research expertise within the centre, the areas that we apply our research into, details about our 71 academics, our projects and latest news about the centre.As an example, our website contains lots of information about our four research themes.
Below is a sneak preview of each of the themes, click on the icon to see more information about the theme on our new website.
Assistive Robotics & Social Robotics:
We are developing companion robots for older people; assistive robots for disabled and older people and smart furniture. We are also conducting research into telepresence robots for future applications.
Intelligent Personalised Support:
We are working on sensors and signal processing, data communication, modelling and inference to support people to make decisions about self- managing their health.
Human Communication Technology:
We are creating systems that assist people with disordered speech to communicate with other people, technologies that assist people to interact with machines more easily and analysis tools that can extract information from the speech and audio signal.
Complex Behavioural Interventions:
We are developing interventions and applications to improve mental health and well-being, promote healthy living and enable the self management of long term conditions.
More information on these themes, the projects we are working on and our researchers can be found on our newly launched CATCH website. Crosslinks encourage visitors to browse and discover new projects and researchers. We aim to provide regular stories about CATCH on our website.
