The Sensors Day 2015 conference was oranised together with the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications.
One day of talks, posters and demonstrations highlighted the vast breadth of research and development in the field of sensing.
About 140 people attendend the event and were treated to talks on microfluidics, sensors for space applications, infrastructure sensing, optical sensors, robotics and computer visision.
The first cohort of Sensor CDT students presented the resultsfrom their Team Challenge on "Sensors for Assisted Living of the Elderly" - a suite of interconnected sensors monitoring the activity patterns of elderly people, alerting carers to potential emergencies.
Undgergraduate students from Cambridge University presented their low cost microscope, while postgraduate students showcased sensing chop sticks and wearable sensors to monitor physical exercises.
