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.
Sam and his cocktail concoction
The conference banquet included a competition to see who could create the best cocktail. Congratulations for to Sam for being the undisputed winner for creating the worst cocktail (pictured here)!
Sam's talk was also accompanied by two talks from me: the keynote presentation and a paper on our research on supercapacitor modelling.

Haptics Research in Government Report11th July 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 provider... [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]
