The Sensors & Instrumentation Group builds on over 10 years of support for UK sensing innovation from the Sensors & Instrumentation KTN through to the Sensors & Instrumentation Knowledge Centre. 

We look at sensing in its entirety, from the principles of measurement and novel sensor technologies through to instrumentation, deployment and data analysis. The group brings together a community of over 4000 individual members from SME technology companies, large company and public sector end-users, academics, entrepreneurs, support organisations including design, engineering, manufacturing, finance and intellectual property sectors, and policy makers.


Knowledge Centres Driving innovation

The three main challenge areas are shown below, although our work is by no means limited to these three areas, as can be seen from our work in the Special Interest Groups of Internet of Things, Smart DC, Smart Energy and the Connected Digital Economy Catapult group.
