Haptics Demoed at SoNG Outreach Event18th November 2010
Our interdisciplinary research on haptic devices for tactile interaction was showcased at this year's SoNG 'Outreach' event'. The Outreach event was held to showcase research to both the University and selected school teachers, charities, patient groups and industrialists. At the event, we demonstrated some of the wearable tactile devices that we have produced through the project, and reported on the findings of their evaluation on human participants.

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]
Online Presentation on Holistic Energy Harvesting18th June 2012
Today I presented our research on Holistic Energy Harvesting at the IET conference on Wireless Sensing Systems (WSS 2012). In particular, I was talking about our system demonstrator, namely a "Vibration-Powered Sensing System for Engine Condition Monitoring".
Condition monitoring is becoming an established technique for managing the maintenance of machinery in transport applications. Vibration energy harvesting allows wireless systems to be powered without batteries, but most traditional gene... [more]
