About the Bath Beacon

More on the Bath Beacon for the augmented human.

Assisted technology from the University of Bath

Professor Eamonn O’Neill leads this Beacon to assist and augment the human in multiple ways and settings, including: assistive technology for overcoming disabilities; enhancing performance in daily tasks; enhancing performance in extreme conditions from elite sport to emergency services. This work entails augmenting both body and mind, providing assistance physically and mentally. It also aims to aid early prediction and diagnosis of conditions from blood cancer to Alzheimer’s disease, contributing to prevention and care.

Relevant technologies in which this Beacon has experience and also wishes to collaborate on include:

  • electroencephalography (EEG)
  • brain-computer interfaces (BCI)
  • high density surface electromyography (HD-sEMG)
  • motion capture (mocap)
  • inertial measurement units (IMUs)
  • eye tracking (Tobii, Vive etc)
  • microcontrollers
  • biosensors (e.g. blood glucose, cortisol, alpha-amylase)
  • virtual and augmented reality

The main aims of this Beacon are to identify and facilitate new collaborations and research avenues through the creative collisions of colleagues, to help colleagues to respond quickly and effectively to emerging calls and approaches from potential collaborators and funders, to mentor and assist colleagues at every career stage to identify appropriate funding sources and to develop research proposals.
