  1. 1. S3C: a hierarchical approach to sensor systems Duncan Bremner University of Glasgowwww.sensorsystems.org.uk
  2. 2. Why was S3C formed? • A market for complex sensor systems was emerging • A coalition of industrial partners has been established to demonstrate demand • The common messages received:- – must have system-wide capability and be able to address challenges at the physical, communication, data and information integration levels. – must have systems integration expertise, the capacity to prototype systems throughout a stacked architecture.www.sensorsystems.org.uk
  3. 3. The S3C sensor system stack User (superior decision system ) Information Visualisation & presentation Power, control, manage System Integration Analysis & post processing Data repository Communications and networking Transductance & pre-processing Data Sensor Element MeasurandA single hierarchical model defines clear interfaces across the system
  4. 4. The S3C ‘water’ projects User (superior decision system ) Information Visualisation & presentation UoG / SEPA Power, control, manage System Integration Analysis & post processing Data repository Communications and networking Transductance & pre-processing / SC SU Data Sensor Element MeasurandA single hierarchical model defines clear interfaces across the system
  5. 5. The SSSC ‘water’ projectsS3C has shown the potential for sensor & imaging solutions to play a major role inprojects of strategic national importance: Hydro Nation Renewable Energy TourismBut also projects at an industry level, whichprovide extended or new products & services: Multi-national pump manufacturer Smart city concepts with a Scottish Local Authority
  6. 6. Project Case Study Case Study: Embankment monitoringScottish Canals, Strathclyde University, Glasgow University, Freescale & The British Geological Society 1.The problem statement – continuous monitoring of submerged assets – embankments 2. Team assembly 3. Concept development 4. Project Managed Delivery 5. Prototype Delivered 6. Field Testing: January 2013 7. 9 months from problem statement to prototyping
  7. 7. Contact usDuncan Bremner; S3C Project ManagerDuncan.bremner@glasgow.ac.ukSian Williams, S3C Business Developmentsian.williams@glasgow.ac.ukJaclyn McCann,S3C AdministrationJaclyn.mccann@glasgow.ac.ukWe’re here to help you build collaborative projects
