WiSE Project Day12th November 2008
WiSE held it's first 'Project Day', an intensive one-day problem-based exercise for PhD students in ECS that are researching wireless sensing related topics. Ten students took part in an intensive day which ran from 8am to 7pm! Two teams were formed, one of which was tasked with developing a piece of clinical equipment (in response to a request from a Surgeon at the local University Hospital), while the other was required to develop a sensor network to monitor our building.

The exercise promoted a wealth of discussion between researchers, and also provided everybody with a great opportunity to familiarise themselves with sensor network hardware and develop practical and problem-solving skills. The following day saw presentations from both teams, who demonstrated that they had developed solutions to their respective problems. The event was a great success, entirely thanks to the efforts of those who took part, with many requests for a similar event to be held in the future... Watch this space!
WiSE (Wireless Sensing in ECS) is an interest group bringing together researchers in ECS. WiSE operates as part of the sensor networks research theme of the PSC. WiSE addresses the 'sensor networks' research theme by bringing together researchers with a common interest in wireless sensing and sensor networks.

Presentations from Teng, Sei Ping, Luis and Davide9th July 2012
Today, Teng, Sei Ping, Luis and Davide all presented their research as part of the ESS group's student seminar series.
Teng presented his research on interoperability in wireless sensor networks, Sei Ping on intelligent adaptive street lighting, Luis on machine learning for adaptive power management, and Davide on energy-aware algorithms for wireless sensor networks.
All received a lot of useful questions and feedback on their research, and it was a useful exercise in finding out more abou... [more]
Sam presents at INSS 201213th June 2012
Today, Sam presented his paper at the EnHaNSS (Algorithms and Concepts for Networked Sensing Systems Powered by Energy Harvesters) Workshop at INSS (International Conference on Networked Sensing Systems) 2012. Sam's paper was titled Design of a linearized magnetic spring for body-worn inertial energy harvesters, and was well received by the audience.
The conference banquet included a competition to see who could create the best cocktail. Congratulations for to Sam for being the undisputed win... [more]
