Haptics Research in Government Report

11th July 2011

FAST Government Report, 2011
FAST Government Report, 2011
Our research on haptic devices for stroke rehabilitation has been featured in an annual government report on assistive technology. Our bit can be found on page 51 of the report (follow the link at the bottom of this news item).

The report is prepared by FAST (the Foundation of Assistive Technology), and is an annual publication by the Department of Health (UK Government). The report has a number of uses (including giving researchers an overview of other work in the field, and service providers information on new technologies and devices), but is also used by Government to highlight promising and successful areas of research that may require future funding.

The annual report is published pursuant to section 22 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, and describes the wide range of government funded projects supporting the development, introduction and evaluation of assistive technology that might increase the range of activities and independence or well being of disabled and older people.

Alex presents his research, and also chairs a session
Alex Wood presented our research on 'DejaView' at the recent 2012 SenseCam Symposium. DejaView is a system designed to help sufferers of memory loss, in particular by allowing them to receive relevant real-time feedback. In the current demonstrator, this feedback gives the wearer information on who they are looking at - for example their name, relationship, when they last saw them etc. Alex was also awarded a bursary by the conference organisers to attend the symposium, and chaired one of the se...

Two Papers Accepted for Publication in IEEE Transactions
26th September 2011
Our paper on supercapacitor modelling
We have recently had two papers related to our work on Energy Harvesting electronics accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems. Both publications are a result of the EPSRC project on 'Holistic Energy Harvesting'. The first paper, 'Accurate Supercapacitor Modeling for Energy-Harvesting Wireless Sensor Nodes' investigates supercapacitors, often used in energy-harvesting wireless sensor nodes (EH-WSNs) to store harvested energy. Until now, research into the use of... [more]
