Sensor Systems

SensorsystemSensors enable the continuous acquisition of key performance indicators and environmental data. The advancing miniaturization, reduction of energy consumption and new strategies for data transmission of sensor systems allow their mass use. Thus, they increasingly enable the realization of intelligent, autonomous, and adaptive systems. In particular, we are researching sensor systems for medicine and life sciences, maritime applications, energy grids, and environmental sensing. One research focus is on the fabrication of sensor chips using micro- and nanosystems engineering methods (e.g., the chip labs in Prof. Gerken's group). Here we have a very good laboratory infrastructure with the Kiel Nanolab and the Competence Center Nanosystems Engineering. Further focal points are sensor modeling and sensor information technology. The networking of sensors, the integration of functionality and new approaches for decentralization, real-time data processing, communication and self-checking enable much more powerful and energy-efficient sensor technology. We are currently establishing the Center for Networked Sensor Systems for this future field.
