When everyday materials are augmented with sensing and computation

Monday 12 March: 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

Materials and manufacturing processes can be made to adapt to the way in which objects are used, by imbuing materials with sensing and computation elements. These sensing and computation elements interact with the physical world and can be made to use less energy (or can be made cheaper) by making the algorithms which they implement, in hardware or software, aware of physics and of the structural designs of the objects in which they are embedded. Dr Phillip Stanley-Marbell, Department of Engineering, highlights new research that exploits these observations.
