Bristol’s SPHERE project showcased at ‘Internet of Things’ launch
The University of Bristol has announced that the SPHERE (Sensor Platform for HEalthcare in a Residential Environment) project was featured at the London launch of IoTUK – part of a £40 million government investment in the Internet of Things (IoT).
SPHERE – one of a dozen projects featured at the launch – brings together clinicians, engineers, designers, social care professionals and members of the public to develop sensor technologies that can monitor vulnerable people in their homes and detect problems like falls or strokes.
The University is a lead partner in the SPHERE project.
IoTUK is aimed at promoting the UK’s global leadership in the IoT and to increase the adoption of high-quality IoT technologies and services throughout the private and public sectors.
