Spaces are limited!
Monitoring human health and creating hi-tech robotic skin are just two of the futuristic applications for our highly sensitive, stretchable, robust and flexible sensors and systems. Westworld is closer than you think!
We aim to develop new wearable sensor systems that can detect, characterise, communicate and analyse vital human health biosignals.
The system will consist of tactile sensors that are ultrasensitive, flexible and wearable; integrated power sources; on-board data capture and storage; a communications protocol; and a software system.
To achieve this new type of tactile sensor system, we will focus on the following specific objectives:
Stretchability and high sensitivity are the key characteristics of advanced wearable sensors. However, a major challenge remains in simultaneously attaining high sensitivity and a broad sensing range. This project will design and fabricate wearable sensor devices with high sensitivity and stretchability based on rational material designs and structural engineering. This novel form of sensor device will be unveiled through fundamental research into its working mechanism, new device fabrication techniques, and innovative material structural engineering.
All degrees are welcome, however students specialising in the below areas are encouraged to apply.
