Title: Smart sensor systems and its applications
Abstract: Recent advances in sensor miniaturization and power efficiency, with reduced manufacturing cost, make multi-model smart sensors ready for dense deployment. Smart sensors act as our eyes and ears to acquire ambient information from natural and built environments. Smart sensors also facilitate interactions between human and the surrounding, to improve the quality of life and the efficiency of work. Various challenges, such as sensing material development, data acquisition and processing, and data communication, are currently under active research. This presentation will showcase UniSA’s research projects on multi-model sensor systems, including healthcare, mining, and surveillance applications.
