Upon the invitation of Prof Hongnian Yu, the team from Chinese Academy of Sciences was visiting Bournemouth University to conducted a Newton funded project, Adaptive Learning Control of a Cardiovascular Robot using Expert Surgeon Techniques, from 26 June to 7 July 2018. Two teams have exchanged the ideas, the project progress and the future plan. They had several meetings and discussion sessions.
Prof Hongnian Yu and Dr Carol Clark visited Chinese Academy of Sciences in May 2017, and visited their labs and organized a project workshop. This Newton funded project is closely related to three of BU2025 strategic areas – medical sciences, assistive technology and animation, simulation & visualisation. The project has potential to generate some real impacts to our society and manufacturing industry which can be used for the future REF impact case.
