This project will implement the DRL technique for construction waste grasping, and further design flexible and adaptable robotic grippers for waste handling. The existing commercial robotic hand and grippers might not be able to handle irregular and heavy construction wastes in an unstructured environment. The gripper has to adapt to wastes with different shapes and sizes and tolerate collisions due to material moving during the picking. The touch and force sensors can assist with controlling the gripper and the grasp execution in actual settings.

Sponsor Value

RMIT University will provide the award amount of $31,885 per annum for three years with the possibility of a six-month extension.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for this scholarship you must: have a Master by Research degree or a Master by Coursework degree with a significant research component graded as high distinction or equivalent or an Honours degree achieving first-class Honours in civil/mechanical/manufacturing engineering or another suitable field. Preferred applicants: Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents or on-shore international applicants.
