This project is working with the University of South Wales through the Centre for Photonics Expertise (CPE). It aims to explore the use of photonics based sensors in combination with other off the shelf capabilities to be able to develop wearable technologies for human performance monitoring.
The primary driver is the monitoring soldiers on the battlefield and during training exercises. Information regarding hydration, oxygen, carbon dioxide/monoxide and stress are of key interest. However there are other key markets for this technology include medical, social care and sports science.
