About the Event

Sensor devices are everywhere: a recent estimate predicts that by 2020 sensors will account for over 60% of the total installed base of the 30 billion devices in the ‘Internet of Things’. This staggering number requires sensor technology to reduce physical dimensions, weight and become more energy efficient.

To achieve these requirements, sensor and instrumentation technologies have driven devices to micro and nano length-scales, Emergent materials and methods for sensor fabrication are becoming commercially applied, such as the ‘wonder material’ graphene, which is starting to realise some fascinating industrial applications.

Intelligent Sensing Programme

For this event, the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) brings together leading academic researchers and industrialists from the sensor and  instrumentation sector for a day of talks, technology demonstrations and networking, culminating in a wine reception.

ISP events have been the highlight of the sensors and instrumentation calendar since the start of the Knowledge Transfer Networks in 2006 and the Faraday Partnerships which preceded them. The core strength of the ISP events is that they aim to showcase new sensing technologies irrespective of their core target markets. This focus on exciting, novel technologies and their applications sits firmly with the Knowledge Transfer Networks aim of encouraging interactions, which otherwise would not happen.
