Reseach Featured in 'New Boundaries' Magazine

25th November 2011

Dec 2011 Issue of New Boundaries
Dec 2011 Issue of New Boundaries
Our research on the use of tactile devices in stroke rehabilitation, has been featured in the latest issue of the University's biannual research magazine: 'New Boundaries'. The magazine gives a flavour of the University's broad range of research, which crosses the boundaries separating the traditional disciplines.

The 4-page article from this issue, including an interview with myself, Cheryl Metcalf and Sara Demain, can be downloaded by following this link. An excerpt from this article is shown below:

Southampton researchers are also developing novel devices that help stroke patients regain the sense of touch in their arms and hands. Dr Geoff Merrett, who is leading the project, says: "The sensory aspect of stroke rehabilitation hasn't had much attention so far, but it is vital. It's all very well being able to move your hand to pick up an object, but when you can't feel that object, you don't know whether it's slipping out of your hand or whether it's hot or cold. The devices we're designing will reinforce those perceptions."

The StreetlightSim website
StreetlightSim has been produced as part of Sei Ping Lau's, a member of my research team, PhD research project. The simulator is an open source streetlight simulation environment based on the well-known OMNet++ and SUMO tools. It features a customisable road traffic pattern, described by the road traffic distribution according to different times of day and annual average daily traffic flow (AADF), and can be easily extended to different streetlight networks using OpenStreetMap and JOSM.

Seminar Given at CENS, UCLA
30th July 2008
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Campus
I have spent a couple of days in the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing (CENS) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the USA. It's been very interesting, and great to see the place where so much excellent WSN research is being done. During the visit, Professor Neil White and I gave a seminar to CENS researchers on 'Energy Aware Remote Sensing', reflecting on the work that is being undertaken by researchers within the Electronic Systems and Devices (ESD) group and the Perv...
