Sensor technologies create measurements and convert them into digital data. This data can then be analysed to inform decision making. What’s being measured could be chemical, biological, physical, mechanical or any other quantities such as chemicals, proteins, weight, dimensions and more.
Sensor and sensor systems are essential technologies for detections, monitoring, measuring, diagnosis, and other measurement works to be carried out. They are used by many sectors such as manufacturing, energy, environment pollution, medical diagnostics, life-science studies and more.
The Innovate UK KTN Enabling Technologies team supports organisations and individuals who are developing an innovative project that includes sensor technology. We can help connect you with organisations and funding that can fast-track your project. We can also connect you to experts, researchers and other businesses that have the expertise you’re looking for.
We work with innovators, researchers, industrialists and business leaders. They come from varied sectors like manufacturing, energy, transport, agriculture, life sciences, environment and healthcare.
Our team has a deep expertise covering topics including detection, measurement, sensors, monitoring, analytical, analysis, assays, diagnostics, testing, characterisation, smart technologies, IoT, biophonics, spectroscopy, optoelectronics, metrology and calibration.
