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.

I Begin to trial DejaView!17th July 2012
Today I got my own DejaView device to start to wear, play with, improve (and fix the bugs)! While we've had working devices and a working system for many months now, up until now any devices that we have had have been used by the rest of the research team and our clinicial collaborators in London.
Some of the photos from my first two days of wearing DejaView can be seen in the image:
The top photo was captured while myself and Paul Lewis were interviewed and filmed by a team from Sweden ma... [more]
Book on Wireless Sensor Network Applications31st December 2010
I recently edited a book titled "Wireless Sensor Networks: Application-Centric Design". It is an open-access book, meaning that you can download and read it for free, by following the link below. My contribution (the preface) can also be downloaded in isolation from our ePrints server, at http://eprints.ecs.soton.ac.uk/21705/.
This book is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all WSN applications and deployments to date. Instead, it is a collection of state-of-the-art research papers ... [more]
