UArizona Health Sciences SensorLab brings in student, faculty and community for innovation
TUCSON (KVOA) - A new lab on the University of Arizona campus aims to bring students, faculty and the community together through the use of software sensor systems and human-centered hardware.
The equipment provided in the University of Arizona Health Sciences' new SensorLab will encourage creativity and innovation.
The SensorLab provides numerous sensor technologies that people can access.
Some of those include flexible wearable sensors, XR - also known as extended reality, environmental monitoring sensors, as well as 360 video and audio recording.
“We're going to have some higher end technologies that people aren't necessarily as familiar with,” said Dr. Jennifer Barton, the director of the BIO5 Institute and a professor of biomedical engineering. “It can do things like full motion capture, can look at human movement, and those are available for rent. Anybody can check them out. They can also use the spaces we can set up, a space that looks like a hospital room, and test new technology that might be able to detect falls or even prevent falls.”
The lab was sponsored by the university’s strategic funds, as well as the state of Arizona’s new economy funds.
It is now open to the public and is located on the Health Sciences campus.
It is available for anyone on campus to use, as well as the community.
