The Intelligent Sensing Programme (ISP) for developers, suppliers and the end users of sensor instrumentation and systems held at the Savoy Place, London, will highlight new opportunities in the field of sensing technologies. The conference will also keep everyone updated on sensor technology requirements as well as development.
At present, sensors play a key role in industrial research. The industry demand is increasingly stringent and sophisticated too, thus requiring innovative development of sensor technology. Additionally, there is pressure on companies to deliver better value without compromising on vital factors such as safety and quality.
The ISP conference is bound to witness leading scientists and industry players sharing their view on the impact of sensing technology. Jim Pennycook, wing commander and military advisor, will showcase the strategic role that sensors play in the development of defence technologies to meet military requirements. Carl Johnstone of Network Rail will provide a list of contemporary technological requirements. Other speakers include Christopher Harrison of Schlumberger, Xiabing Huang of Moor Instruments and Colin Harper of QinetiQ.
The ISP event will also witness presentations of various innovative sensing technologies. Alongside, funding opportunities will be provided from corporates such as FP7 National Contact Point, Department of Business, University of Surrey, Innovation and Skills, and Frost and Sullivan.
