Energy Harvesting 201228th March 2012
Following from the success of our conference "Energy Harvesting 2011", held in London last year, today we held this year's conference. Energy Harvesting 2012 was held in London on 28th March 2012.
Attendees at Energy Harvesting 2012
Speakers included Prof Peter Woias (IMTEK, Germany), Frank Schmidt (CTO Enocean), Prof Vittorio Ferrari (University of Brescia, Italy), Roy Freeland (Perpetuum) and Prof Eric Yeatman (Imperial College, London).
The event provided a platform for disseminating energy-harvesting advances in the UK, and contained presentations from well-respected speakers from academia and industry, demonstrations from companies, and posters from postgraduate students. Around 100 participants attended from both industry and academia.
The event was very well received by all that attended, and we look forward to Energy Harvesting 2013!

Press Coverage for Tactile Devices in Rehabilitation14th November 2011
Our research on tactile devices for stroke rehabilitation has already received a fantastic amount of press coverage and public interest.
Some of this has been reported elsewhere on this webpage (for example our appearances in BBC radio and the 'FAST' government report), but a selection of the online coverage that it received (at least that which I have spotted) is listed below:
The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy's magazine

First DejaView PCBs3rd June 2010
Today we received the PCBs for the DejaView device (version 1)! Nearly a year has passed since we first began to think about how technology can better assist sufferes of memory loss, and we are well on the way to having our first new devices.
The device, forming a part of the dejaview system architecture (alongside a mobile-phone and web service) includes a three megapixel camera, bluetooth radio module, ARM Cortex-M3 microcontroller and an array of different sensors.
