• An Alternative Approach for Developing Socially Assistive Robots 

      Jayawardena, Chandimal; Kuo, I-Han; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (IEEE Robotics and Automation Society + Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2014)
      This paper presents the design of the socially assistive companion robotic wheelchair named RoboChair. Unlike in most current companion robotics projects, the approach of RoboChair is not to build a completely new robotic ...
    • Designing a socially assistive companion robotic wheel chair: RoboChair 

      Jayawardena, Chandimal; Baghaei, Nilufar; Ganeshan, Kathiravelu; Sarrafzadeh, Hossein (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
      Developing socially assistive robots is an emerging interdisciplinary research area, which requires collaboration between a wide range of disciplines. Among recent research projects, there have been attempts to develop ...
    • An efficient programming framework for socially assistive robots based on separation of robot behavior description from execution 

      Jayawardena, Chandimal; Kuo, I-Han; MacDonald, B.A. (IEEE Computer Society, 2013)
      One of the main challenges in socially assistive robotics is providing flexible and easy-to-use programming tools for users. Unlike other robots, designing socially assistive robots includes the subject-matter-experts ...
    • An intelligent agent based land encroachment detection approach 

      Dacey, Simon; Song, Lei; Pang, Shaoning (Asia Pacific Neural Network Assembly (APNNA), 2013)
      Land management and planning is essential to assist the economic growth, sustainable resource use and environmental protection of a city. This paper describes a novel approach to automatic encroachment detection to assist ...
    • Tracking a person’s behaviour in a smart house 

      Chand, G.; Ali M.; Barmada, Bashar; Liesaputra, Veronica; Prado, G. (Springer Verlag, 2018-11)
      This paper proposes to use machine learning techniques with ultrasonic sensors to predict the behavior and status of a person when they live solely inside their house. The proposed system is tested on a single room. A grid ...
