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!)

Energy Harvesting Network's Data Repository Launched13th February 2012
The Energy Harvesting Network, coordinated by myself and Prof Steve Beeby at the University of Southampton, have launched the Network's 'Data Repository' - an online catalogue for researchers worldwide to share data on ambient energy availability - for example acceleration levels, solar irradience, or wind speeds. It is hoped that, by using a common dataset, this will encourage the comparitive evaluation of energy harvesters and fuel advances in the field.
Natuarlly, the repository will only ... [more]
Teng and Sei Ping Present Research17th March 2015
Today marked the 10th anniversary of the Coventry-Southampton research exchange visits, which we started back in 2005 (when I was a PhD student!). Since their inital beginnings, these visits have broadened to also incorporate research going on at Cambridge University. The purpose of the visits is to share research on pervasive systems in an informal environment, and give research students an opportunity to get experience presenting their work and to receive friendly feedback and advice from an e...
