IEEE IMS NSW Chapter Annual Workshop
The IEEE Instruments and Measurement Society NSW Chapter held its second annual workshop titled “Sensors, Instrumentation, and Measurement: Theory and Applications” on the 18th of July, at Macquarie University. The event consisted of speakers from both industry and academia, speaking on topics ranging from electrical and photonic sensing and structural monitoring, to the Internet-of-Things platform that brings all this together.
Tomonori Hu represented the NSW Smart Sensing Network and provided a presentation titled “NSW Smart Sensing Network - case study into measuring particulate matter for low cost air quality monitoring”. With Macquarie University being a member of the NSSN, the opportunity was taken to explain how the network operates and the opportunities it brings to academics. Recent developments at the University of Sydney in low-cost particle detectors were also highlighted, as were prospects of how air quality networks could be set up, along with the challenges that need to be overcome.
The workshop brought together a pool of experts in sensing technologies with whom we hope to collaborate as part of the NSSN. A thank you to the chair of the event – Prof. Subhas Mukhopadhyay, and all of the organisers that make up the IEEE IMS NSW Chapter.
