Event description
Sensor CDT Industry Lecture by Dr Natasha Conway and Dr Graham Anderson of Beko

About this Event

We will start with an introduction from Dr Ronan Daly (Institute for Manufacturing). The talk will then be split into three parts:

1. Dr Conway will introduce the Beko R&D Centre and its parent company Arcelik. This will include their research interests and how they aim to engage with universities and the opportunities that can arise from this.

2. Dr Anderson will describe his career path from university to industry with an aim of showing the exciting possibilities for cutting edge research away from academia.

3. Finally, presentations on some of the research at Beko R&D into novel sensors and how they offer many diverse advantages and opportunities for the smart home. Beko R&D is aiming to be at the forefront of this by collaborating with companies and universities to research areas that can enhance user comfort and safety in the home. This can be from low cost sensors with built-in energy harvesting, to HMI sensors allowing new ways of user interaction.
