Overview of Cogent Research 2012
The Cogent Computing Applied Research Centre aims to become the UK's leading centre for research in the field of pervasive sensing.
The unique research approach of our multi-disciplinary team of experts blends forward-looking theory with practical experimentation. From this springs a vision of the future of distributed sensing and computing systems, which informs our provision of solutions to real-world problems today.
We apply our extensive knowledge throughout the field and our proven pedagogic excellence to tangible products. The most important of these is, naturally, nurturing the research students, at postgraduate and even undergraduate level, in whose hands the ultimate exciting potential of pervasive computing will be realised.
However, in research labs alone these cutting-edge developments cannot constitute the technological revolution they have the capacity to become.
Thus, we offer an innovative range of industry orientated short-courses and a consultancy service specialising in cost-effective bespoke solutions to all sectors utilising sensing and monitoring instrumentation and technology, in order to facilitate the migration of pervasive sensing from future potential to present success.
