Sensor connectivity enables operation of the Internet of Things and cyber-physical systems in which objects and machines interact with each other and the physical world, either in close collaboration with, or entirely without the intervention of, humans. Many products will contain sensors that report on their condition and level of use, and provide information about their manufacture, repair, disassembly and final disposal. This enables the development of new data-based business models. Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Autonomy are entirely dependant on the quality of information derived from sensors, and sensor technology can be applied in various fields such as process, condition and environmental monitoring.
Health and Performance technology
The research group Health and Performance technology investigates how sensor technology may be utilized to improve health, performance and services; both for the individual user and at different levels of the health care system, with particular focus on wearables. We can utilize already existing off-the-shelf sensors, or we can develop new sensor systems from scratch.
