Who Killed The Somerton Man? School research project featured in Herald Sun

Victoria’s Herald Sun newspaper featured a research project headed up by the University of Adelaide’s School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Professor Derek Abbott. The project is investigating the 1948 death of an anonymous man found on Somerton Beach south of Adelaide. Among the clues found was a piece of paper found on the man’s […]

Research Seminar 7th November- Contactless measurements of vital signs

Abstract: Clinically used methods to derive vital signs such as heart rate and respiration use electrodes, optical or mechanical sensors, which must be attached to the body. Innovative systems, however, allow for low-contact or even contact-free measurements of vital signs. Amongst others, the capacitive electrocardiogram, camera-based and radar-based measurements have been proven to be applicable. […]

Research Seminar 5th November- Beyond von-Neumann architectures: Scalable neuromorphic hardware

Abstract: Biological neural systems outperform the most advanced computing machines in solving nondeterministic, highly complex and multi-dimensional tasks. Performing such tasks in real-time needs extremely complex classical (von Neumann) computing machines, and hence, rendering them impractical. In contrast, biological neural systems autonomously process information in complex environments by learning features and associations. Since real world […]

Research Seminar 5th December- Metamaterial Inspired Microwave Filters and Sensors

Abstract: The introduction of split-ring resonators (SRRs) has provided new opportunities for designing high performance microwave devices. Split-ring resonators and their counterparts, so called complementary split-ring resonators (CSRRs), have been widely utilized in composite left/right handed transmission lines, microwave sensors, and filters due to their compactness, high quality factor (Q) resonance, and low radiation loss […]
