Taste of Research Projects 2016/2017

Our Taste of Research students finished their 3 month scholarship this week. This year we had two students. Their projects were:

  • Skeleton Tracking on the Baxter Robot
  • Constructing a Mobile Domestic Robot

We’ve put together some videos summarising their work.


The Taste of Research program is a 3 month scholarship for undergraduate students in Engineering. Students undertake a research project in an existing team and discover what conducting research is like. The program runs over the summer break. For more information, and to apply in future programs, visit the Taste of Research page.
