At the Tech Summit

Context-based sensing approaches are very useful for many applications such as industrial real-time monitoring, telecare and device-to-device communications. The exhibition at this year’s Technology Summit will showcase a real testbed for a typical telecare application where capacitive touch sensors are used to assist elderly people and improve their wellbeing. The testbed may be further developed in collaboration with CENSIS’ Connected Devices Development Centre (CDDC).
