    Roger Woodman


    Roger Woodman Welcome to my profile page. I am at present involved with a medical imaging project at Southampton Univeristy. This involves devleloping new image processing techniques for extracting useful information from internal images of the human body.

    I have recently completed a PhD in Robotics at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL). My key area of interest is robot safety, where I have been developing hazard analysis techniques for improving the safety of personal robots. The ultimate aim of this work has been to establish a methodology for developing safety cases for personal robots. Having the opportunity to work at the BRL, Europe’s largest robotics laboratory, has greatly expanded my knowledge and appreciation for the quality of robotics research being done in the UK.
