Networks of Sensors Sub-Group - Overview


Distributed high density networks of sensors have been identified as offering a potential paradigm shift in the way that we observe and study the environment. However there has been a generic disconnect between basic development of devices in the lab and their pull through into a demonstration or operational environment. A recent £5M initiative by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has created a number of sensor network projects at leading UK research institutions in collaboration with industry that will push the envelope in terms developing new technological approaches to the deployment of sensors, some of which may be in remote and/or hostile environments.

The Networks of Sensors sub-group aims to create a platform where industry can learn about new developments, interact with NERC technologists and each other in the field of the deployment of networks of sensors. A key goal is to create KE opportunities between technologies developed by NERC and the industrial community. The £5M "Networks of Sensors – Demonstration of High Resolution Networks" programme is sponsored by NERC in collaboration with STFC, DSTL and the Knowledge Transfer Network.

Through the Networks of Sensors sub-group we will keep you posted on our events, Quarterly newsletters, technical publications throughout the year. Click on the "Join this Sub-Group" button to register for this group for free now.
