A digital communication engineer appointment is available in the Li-Fi Research and Development Centre. The LiFi Research and Development Centre at the University of Edinburgh is the world leading centre which translates fundamental Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3 visible light communication research into commercial TRL 6 reference platforms for a large number of industries.
This project combines novel low-THz (LTHz) sensor development with advanced video analysis, fusion and cross learning. Using the two streams integrated within the sensing, information and control systems of a modern automobile, we aim to map terrain and identify hazards such as potholes and surface texture changes in all weathers, and to detect and classify other road users (pedestrians, car, cyclists etc.).
On Wednesday 10 July, students from the School of Engineering, the School of Informatics and other universities outside of the UK took part in a lightning presentation event. The Two-Minute Project Presentation event marks the mid-point of the School’s summer internship programme and provides students with an opportunity to showcase the projects they have been working on, while also practising their presentation skills.
The School's Professor Timothy Drysdale has been recognised for his pioneering work using remote laboratories in engineering teaching at the National Instruments' annual international conference, NI Week (20-23 May 2019) in Austin, Texas.
