SensorsystemSensors enable the continuous collection of key performance indicators and environmental data. Advancing miniaturization, reduction of energy consumption and new strategies for data transmission of sensor systems allow their mass use. They thus increasingly enable the realization of intelligent, autonomous and adaptive systems. In particular, we investigate sensor systems for medicine and life sciences, maritime applications, energy networks and environmental sensors.

One research focus is on the production of sensor chips using methods from micro and nano system technology (e.g. the chip laboratories in Prof. Gerken's working group). Here we have a very good laboratory infrastructure with the Kiel Nanolabor and the Competence Center for Nanosystems Technology. Further focal points are sensor modeling and sensor information technology. The networking of sensors, the integration of functionality and new approaches to decentralization, real-time data processing, communication and self-testing enable significantly more powerful and energy-efficient sensor technology. We have established the Center for Networked Sensor Systems (ZEVS) for this research field.
