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.
Two photos from DejaView: being interviewed, and caught and recognised shaving in the mirror!
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 making a documentary about lifelogging (the documentary should appear later in the year!).
The bottom photo was captured while I was getting ready for work in the morning, where the reflection of me shaving in the mirror was captured by DejaView (which proceeded to recognise me and announce that I was looking at myself!)

WiSE Project Day12th November 2008
WiSE held it's first 'Project Day', an intensive one-day problem-based exercise for PhD students in ECS that are researching wireless sensing related topics. Ten students took part in an intensive day which ran from 8am to 7pm! Two teams were formed, one of which was tasked with developing a piece of clinical equipment (in response to a request from a Surgeon at the local University Hospital), while the other was required to develop a sensor network to monitor our building.

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]
