The Natural Environment Research Council, supported by the Electronics, Sensors, Photonics KTN, has announced the launch of the third ‘Networks of Sensors’ Annual Technology Showcase Event. This will take place on 27th January 2014 from 10am til 2pm at Hamilton House, London.
This year’s Showcase will feature the practical outcomes of three years of research, discussing the installations, hardware, software, and results of six very different types of Sensor Networks. In addition to the presentations, there will be opportunities for attendees to see the hardware and software, and to meet the teams.
The ‘Networks of Sensors’ technology programme is an ambitious project to demonstrate the large scale deployment of high resolution sensor networks for environmental monitoring. The programme pushes the envelope in terms of developing new technological approaches to the realisation of sensor networks and communication systems, some of which may be in remote or hostile environments.
Programme talks will include:
• Underground Wireless Sensor Networks
• Aircraft Deployable Sensor Networks
• City of Birmingham – High Density Temperature Sensor Network
• Heathrow Airport – High Density Air Quality Sensor Networks
• National Lake Environmental Monitoring Network
• Sensor Networks for Extreme Environments
The broad range of technologies and applications that form the programme will be of interest to a wide audience interested in the remote monitoring of air, land and water quality and the effects of climate change, including:
• Technologists, Engineers and Managers from industry
• Utility companies – power and water
• Infrastructure companies including IT and telecommunications
• Road, rail and air transport agencies and operators
• Government agencies responsible for air, land and water quality
• Regional and Local government bodies
