Collaboration and cross-disciplinary research activity are prerequisites for addressing the grand challenges facing society both nationally and internationally.

The Intelligent Sensing laboratory was built and equipped with £0.75M funding from Newcastle University Vice-Chancellor’s office as part of the University’s £30m Research Investment Fund. This laboratory was officially opened on October 13, 2016.

The areas of research expertise underpinning the Intelligent Sensing team naturally facilitate cross-disciplinary work in providing solutions to many multi-sensor data acquisition and interpretation problems from various thematic areas such healthcare engineering, digital economy, including big data, and global uncertainties.

Examples of current collaborative research at the Intelligent Sensing laboratory include three key areas of Biomedical Engineering, Signal and Information Processing and Non-destructive testing and monitoring.
