Enabling the Internet of Sensors
Looking for partners to work on your project?
- reliability: enabling sensor systems to operate for extended periods with low maintenance overheads
- low power: sensing devices that can capture, process, and communicate information with minimal power requirements
- energy harvesting: sensor systems that have the ability, for example, to scavenge for energy resources
- operating lifetime: through sensor repurposing, effective sensor health monitoring or self-healing
- miniaturisation: helping to integrate sensors within wearable, mobile and other connected computing platforms
- inter-operability: creating universal sensor platforms that can operate with generic sensors, as well as supporting and integrating sensing elements from different sources
- scalability: investigating technologies, in particular, that will allow very large numbers of sensor elements either to be added to a network or removed from a network
- without affecting network integrity
- intelligence: on-board processing to monitor and analyse data feeds and respond without human intervention
- data integrity: maintaining security and ensuring the reliable communication of transmitted data.
- agri-food applications
- data processing and analysis that occurs outside the sensor system (or the network of sensors).
