Institute of Sensors, Signals and Systems
The institute is engaged in fundamental research in many aspects of physical modelling, linear and non-linear, multi-dimensional signal and image processing.
We are developing key innovations in sensor design, manufacture, integration and packaging, autonomous and distributive systems, communication system design and optimisation, tracking, recognition and classification, embedded software and hardware design.
Our research has impact in several key areas, including Medicine and the Life Sciences, Robotics, Autonomous Systems and Transport, Manufacturing and Quality Control, Medicine and Health, Human-Computer Interaction and Communication, Wireless and Wired Communication Networks, Electronics and Microelectronics, Environmental Monitoring and Remote Sensing, Security, Surveillance and Defence.
IeMRC research activities
Dr. David Flynn (ISSS) and Dr. Robert Kay (Loughborough University), have recevied a grant award of £30,000, under the
Innovative Electronics Manufacturing Research Centre (IeMRC) Broadening and/or deepening of the IeMRC research activities, funding call.
Seminars & Colloquia
The Institute has an active research community and seminars are held regularly throughout the year.
EPS Research Forums
The next forum will take place on Thursday 6 February at 11.30am in EM 2.40. The discussion will be led by Dr Eva Day and is entitled 'Opportunities in Horizon 2020'.
It is a forum for discussion based on the following four functions:
1. To Discuss current work particularly problems and successes
This has two advantages in that problems seen form one angle can be seen as solutions from a different view. Secondly it celebrates successes that may fuel the next stage in research.
2. Show and tell
A vast amount of works goes untold to the rest of the community but when revealed could stimulate future directions. It also provides a friendly platform to develop a wider understanding of the science to convince would-be funders to support more work and improve the public understanding of science.
3. Encourage development of cross-discipline research
Much research now does not respect the traditional boundaries of physics, chemistry ,biology or engineering but draws on several areas. To augment this process ideas can be aired at this forum that may shape future applications.
4. Future directions
Research platforms and collaborations need drivers if the institute is to be successful. Therefore, we must plan ahead and focus on specific themes that encompass appropriate expertise.
