Strategic Network for Sensor Research

at Cambridge University

CamBridgeSense, the Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative and the British Antarctic Survey held a networking day on 11 December 2017 to consider the current state-of-the art in the interlinking fields of robotics, sensors and big data, the challenges for the future. The day brought together people with a range of interests and expertise and sparked a number of potential collaborations in this field.

A mix of academic and industrial talks covered challenges in multi-vehicle coordination, bioinspired soft robotics, automation in agriculture, sensor deployment in challenging and remote locations as well ad deep learning.
