Months of entry
This project focuses on the use of microwave and millimetre-wave active antennas for wireless power transfer and communications in mobile robotics. The work will be linked to two major UK research council projects: a £1M collaboration with Lancaster University and King’s College on Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (the SWIFT project), and a £3M network led by Leeds on robotics for infrastructure maintenance in future cities. The project will entail research into antenna arrays in the 2 to 100 GHz range, integrated onto mobile robots fabricated in the National Facility for Innovative Robotic Systems at Leeds.
