Summary on Grant Application Form
Speckled Computing offers a radically new concept in information technology that has the potential to revolutionise the way we communicate and exchange information. This will be realised by minute autonomous specks, each of which encapsulates sensing, programmable computation and wireless networking. Computing with minute specks will enable linkages between the material and digital worlds with a finer degree of spatial and temporal resolution than hitherto possible, which will be fundamental to truly ubiquitous computing. The research consortium brings together worldclass expertise in computer science, electronic engineering and optoelectronics, which will conduct collaborative research in the core areas, and importantly, at the interfaces between them. While this provides an integrated technology push, designers industrial designers and educationalists will collaborate in exemplar projects to demonstrate the impact of this research.
