NSSN Western Sydney University Smart Sensing Showcase

Western Sydney University (WSU) Smart Sensing Showcase was held at WSU Parramatta City Campus on Wednesday, June 19th 2019. The event was hosted by NSW Smart Sensing Network Ambassador at WSU; Professor Gregory Cohen, to officially welcome the WSU as a member of NSSN whilst showcasing WSU’s capability in smart sensing to the existing NSSN members. 

WSU smart sensing research showcase was carried out by researchers at the WSU who presented their work in areas such as smart nutrition, medical sensors for patient-controlled devices, audio sensing, stretch sensors for invisible wearables and neuromorphic imaging with event-based sensors.

“As a young and innovative university, we pride ourselves on establishing strategic partnerships and connecting research excellence with practical and positive impacts for the communities we serve,” said Professor Deborah Sweeney (Research & Innovation) at WSU. “The NSSN is a natural fit for us as we seek to deliver real impact to the people of NSW and position NSW as an innovative leader in areas like smart sensing.”

“We are delighted to welcome Western Sydney University to the NSSN. WSU’s membership of the NSSN will bring an outstanding new capability to the network and strengthen our ability to position NSW as a world leader in smart sensing.” said in a joint statement NSSN Co-Directors Professor Benjamin Eggleton and Professor Justin Gooding.

The addition of WSU grows the membership of the NSSN to eight universities and extends the network’s presence into the burgeoning Western Sydney region.
