SARCHi chair in Enabled Environments for Assisted Living
The Tshwane University of Technology has been awarded by the National Research Foundation a South African Research Chairs Initiative (SARCHi) chair on one of the F'SATI research niche area in Enabled Environment and Assistance to the Handicapped.
The SARCHi chair in the Enabled Environment for Assisted Living will focus on the development of mechatronic and networked technologies to assist persons with disabilities and the elderly. By implication there will also be a focus on non-linear modelling and control of mechatronic systems with the human in the loop while considering different sources of uncertainties that exist in such systems.
