Institute of Sensors, Signals and Systems
The Research Institute of Signals, Sensors and Systems (ISSS) is one of five Research Institutes forming the research infrastructure of the School of Engineering & Physical Sciences (EPS)
With 30 academic members of staff spanning 10 nationalities and 4 fields of expertise, ISSS aims to offer the full portfolio of expertise in the fields of signal and image processing, novel manufacturing technologies, microsystems, microwave engineering, mobile communications systems and autonomous systems. Of particular interest to ISSS is the design, modelling, simulation, processing of information from and system integration of sensors. The ISSS annual research income was around £4.5M in 2014-2015 (August 2014-July 2015) with research projects running in parallel ranging from £20K up to £1.5M.
Around 90% of all research projects have industrial partners covering all sectors of industry such as defence, avionics, oil & gas, microelectronics, printed circuit board manufacturing, space engineering, medical healthcare or food processing. Typical companies includes SMEs such as Merlin Circuit Technology Ltd or Seebyte, middle size companies such as Renishaw plc, Scott MacTaggart up to large scale multinational companies such as Selex or BAe Systems.
The Institute of Sensors, Signals and Systems is renowned for its applied research that has significant impact on industry. We work with a range of industrial partners form SMEs to global multinational companies across a range of engagements from student projects to Strategic Alliances.
We can work with you to develop collaborative research projects in a number of areas:
