Expertise

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Signal Processing and Control
  • Modelling and Simulation

Research Themes

Tim's research aligns with the University's research themes of Better Health and Data, Knowledge and Decisions. His research interests include applications of imaging, signals and control in neonatal care and in disability and rehabilitation. This includes improving control of blood oxygenation levels in neonatal ICU settings, and in developing improved biological signal processing methods for control of motorised prosthetics.

Collaboration

Tim is currently involved in projects locally in collaboration with the Royal Hobart Hospital and Menzies Institute and also internationally with researchers in Sweden.

Current projects

  • Application of Engineering methodology and technology in neonatal intensive care, particularly in relation to control of blood oxygen levels and respiratory modelling and simulation

Projects

Automation, Trust, and Workload: UTAS / CSIRO / UoSA Collaborative Research Project (2017 - 2019)$212,982
Description
Automation, and autonomous systems, are playing an increasing role in every-day life. Whereas the previous generation of autonomous technology had its impact largely in industrial spaces, (e.g. automotive factory robots), current advances are bringing such systems into the homes, workplaces, and automobiles of todays citizens. A key factor here is the increased proximity to human operators and bystanders. This project aims to develop a useful model for making predictive analyses based on these three factors, Automation, Trust, and Workload.The work will focus on both traditional methods of workload estimation (i.e. subjective questionnaire) and novel methodology using psychophysiological methodology to measure workload in a way that does not interrupt critical task flow, as is the case with traditional methodology. Such methodologies include, but are not limited to: Pupillometry (using fluctuations in pupil diameter to indicate cognitive load, e.g. (Duenser, Lochner, Engelke, & Rozado, 2015); electro-dermal activity (using skin conductivity to infer cognitive load, e.g. (Lochner, Duenser, Lutzhoft, Brooks, & Rozado, 2016); IR camera-based pulse detection (using video imagery to detect pulse rate, e.g. (Stemberger, Allison, & Schnell, 2010). It is our goal to develop and validate a hybrid methodology for assessing workload in critical task environments, where standard interruptive measurement techniques are not appropriate due to various considerations including safety, efficiency, and efficacy. This framework is not limited to assessing physical automation (e.g. self driving cars, autonomous robotics), but also includes automation within a user-experience framework, considering automated web-based information systems.The second key factor (the first being the level of autonomy) in the model under development is the individuals level of trust in the automated system. Recent research on human interactions with autonomous systems (e.g., Freedy, DeVisser, Weltman, & Coeyman, 2007; Lee & See, 2004) indicates that the level of trust in the system affects the success of the interaction on a number of levels, and should therefore be taken into account as a major factor in the design process. The current project contributors believe that a relation between trust, autonomy, and workload is intrinsic to the human-machine system, and that the development of a model surrounding these influences will inform the successful future development of such systems. This research sits at the nexus of three academic disciplines, namely computer science, psychology, and engineering. The development of systems that operate with variable levels of human engagement, requires an explicit understanding of the human capacity for work, the strengths and limitations of the technology, and a way to predict when errors will occur. The proposed project structure will support this multidisciplinary work by establishing the appropriate interdepartmental connections.

Study of automated neonatal targeting of oxygen: resuscitation trial 1 (the SANTO R1 study) (2016)$10,000
Description
We have developed an automated inspired oxygen controller, which in preliminary studies is very effective in keeping oxygen levels in the desired range in premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). The function of the controller has been further enhanced, allowing it to self-tune to an infants needs and to predict drops in oxygen levels. We will now conduct an evaluation of the efficacy and safety of the device to maintain oxygen levels in the desired range in preterm infants requiring resuscitation at birth.

Description
We have developed an automated inspired oxygen controller, which in preliminary studies is very effective in keeping oxygen levels in the desired range in premature infants. The function of the controller has been further enhanced, allowing it to self-tune to an infants needs, to predict drops in oxygen levels, and to be operated by bedside caregivers. We will now conduct a further evaluation of the device, operated independently by bedside caregivers under standard clinical conditions.

Hardware and software optimisation of a night fighting and situational awareness system (2014)$48,090
Description
The project will identify potential solutions to hardware and software issues associated with a night fighting and situational awareness system being developed by Rockwell Collins Australia Pty Ltd (RCA). RCA had identified three issues of importance prior to the workshop including: optimisation of hardware/software for real-time video display to operator; optimisation of graphical user interface; and optimisation of hardware enclosure.
