SensorWe are one of the UK’s leading universities for research into sensors and sensor systems.

Sensor systems have grown in complexity. They now contain many sensors that are integrated to yield sophisticated data. These data need to be combined, processed and communicated to the user – who has an increasing need for automated evaluation and inference.

We work across this complete sensors systems 'stack': from designing and integrating the sensor technology; to developing the systems for capturing, processing and analysing data; through to generating useful information and acting upon it. 

We are supported by Research Councils UK, the European Union, agencies such as SEPA and DEFRA, and a large number of industrial partners. We have made a commitment to grow our activities further and we are keen to develop new relationships and take existing collaborations in new directions.
