Sensors Day 2015

Sensors Day 2015

A showcase of international sensor research

Murray Edwards College
Cambridge University
16 October 2015

Organised by the Sensor CDT, the Sensors Day 2015 showcased highlights from across a wide area of sensor research.


A series of exciting talks by scientists and engineers from Cambridge University, the University of Berkeley, ETH Zurich and ARM covered a wide range of topics in areas such as microfluidics, ultra low noise sensors for space applications, optical technology, power efficient microcontrollers bio-inspired sensors and computer vision.

It was a great opportunity for the Sensor CDT students and sensor researchers across the University to gain a glimpse of the outstanding research and development in sensor technology, middleware, and sensor applications which is driving academic research and industrial R&D.
