Seminar Given at CENS, UCLA30th July 2008
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.
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Campus
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 Pervasive Systems Centre (PSC) at Southampton.
Later in the visit, we also give the seminar to researchers at the University of Duke, North Carolina.

I Provide 'Expert Advice' on Haptic Technology8th October 2013
This morning I was contacted by a journalist from 'The Engineer' magazine, who was writing a piece about research at Bristol University on the use of ultrasound as a tactile technology. The technology, which I saw demonstrated at a conference a few years ago, uses inaudible ultrasound waves to give the sensation of touch to the fingertips, and by using an array of transducers, can target the sensation at particular locations. My comments on the technology included:
"'Touchless haptics is prob... [more]
