Sensor Technology Research Centre

Welcome to the Sensor Technology Research Centre

We are a grouping of academics sharing interests in sensors and their applications.

We are a world-leading sensor research centre comprising activities along wearable computing and embedded intelligent systems, flexible and stretchable electronics, mobile and wireless communication, IoT and vehicular networks, elecrophysiology and fundamentals of sensors.

The synergies and tight links between our research groups allow us to consistently advance research projects beyond the state of the art and address application-oriented demands from industry and third parties.

The applications domains we cover include: remote sensing, forensics, communication, healthcare, rehabilitation, smart assistance, context-aware systems, vehicular communication, energy management, wearable and implantable electronics, and many others.

The Centre has pioneered a new class of device with generic measurement capability, the Electric Potential Sensor (EPS), which has been licensed to industrial partners and is now being marketed as an integrated circuit device.
