Home / News / Academic / Cambridge to host industry workshop

The Henry Royce Institute is proud to support the next CAM-IES Industry Workshop: Energy Harvesting for Wireless Sensors and the Internet of Things

This will be held at Trinity College Cambridge on Thursday 12 April 2018, 2pm to 5.45pm

Cambridge University

The workshop will include presentations from both industrial and academic speakers, to outline the state-of-the-art and the technological and research challenges.

Invited talks will be given by:

• ARM (Dr Anand Savanth – “Systems Design for Autonomous Wireless Devices”)
• Cambridge Display Technology (Dr Simon King – “Printable Thermoelectrics to Enable the Self-Powered IoT Revolution”)
• Lightricity (Dr Mathias Kauer – “High-efficiency Light Energy Harvesting for IoT Applications”)
• Perpetuum (Dr Roy Freeland – “Electromechanical Energy Harvesting for Autonomous Wireless Devices”)

The Centre of Advanced Materials for Integrated Energy Systems (CAM-IES) is a £2.1 million EPSRC networking Centre in partnership between four UK universities: Cambridge, Newcastle, Queen Mary and University College London.

The event, which aims to provide a great opportunity for academics and industry to discuss development needs and to network with companies making use of sensor technology for IoT and related fields, is being organised by CAM-IES PI Professor Clare Grey and Dr Lata Sahonta Programme Manager for Energy Materials at University of Cambridge.

Dr Sahonta explained: “It is a great opportunity for academics and industry to discuss development needs and to network with companies making use of sensor technology for IoT and related fields.”

There will be a poster session, so any young researchers wishing to take part can submit a poster on any aspect of sensors, energy harvesting, IoT and related systems design. CAM-IES is pleased to offer travel bursaries to students and postdoctoral researchers submitting posters to this event (train fares will be reimbursed to poster presenters in the areas of: energy harvesting, sensor power systems, IoT and related fields). Please send poster titles, affiliations and author lists to sls55@cam.ac.uk by Friday 23 March 2018.
