Awarded Prestigeous £5.5M EPSRC Programme Grant

18th February 2013

The PRiME Research Project
The PRiME Research Project
We have just been awarded a large EPSRC-funded Programme Grant of £5.5M (totalling £10.7M when University and Industrial contributions are included), with Professor Bashir Al-Hashimi as the Director and myself as one of the Co-Investigators. I will also have the role of Applications Leader, and are responsible for ensuring cross-layer collaboration between research partners.

The project, codename PRiME (Power-efficient, Reliable, Many-core Embedded systems), will address major challenges in the design and implementation of energy-efficient and reliable embedded systems with many-core processors.

The grant's academic collaborators are Imperial College, Manchester and Newcastle, with industrial partners ARM, Imagination Technologies, Altera, Freescale and Microsoft Research. The project will be launching in the next couple of months - watch this space!

The app uses the microphone of your smartphone to capture the sound in the surrounding environment. This sound is analysed on the phone itself to provide you with immediate feedback on whether the cicada is there or not. In both cases, if you complete a survey (by tapping on the cicada image in the detector page)... [more]

Stuart's Internship on Energy Harvesting

This summer, one of our undergraduate electronic engineering students, Stuart Barrow, worked with me for three months on the pioneering EPSRC-funded project on "Next Generation Energy-Harvesting Electronics - A Holistic Approach". Stuart developed an ultra low-power system that analyses vibrations and transmits them wirelessly. The photo shows Stuart testing his system on a car engine - the hardware on the engine is detecting vibrations, processing them, and transmitting them wirelessly to a lap... [more]
