Our core programs: Smart Equipment Engineering & Wearable Technology Design

Sensor Smart Design
Human Responsive Innovation

A core program specialising in developing sensor technology, sensor integration and advanced data analysis and visualisation, the Smart Equipment Engineering and Wearable Technology Design sector of the CDI maintains a distinct focus towards developing outcomes that improve health, safety and performance. The Smart Equipment and Wearables team seeks to innovate laterally, with emphasis on creating new intellectual property; reducing the cost and size of sensors and devices; improving accuracy, wearability and manufacturability; and on the discovery of hitherto unknown performance parameters. 

In addition, the program pursues fundamental non-linear engineering, such as sensor viscosity, non-linear visco-elasticity of smart materials, fractal dimension analysis and movement analysis. In addressing these key areas, the Smart Equipment Engineering and Wearable Technology has forged a reputation for developing effective and affordable products that have a consistently positive effect on health and performance. 

Led by Franz Konstantin ‘Tino’ Fuss, the Smart Equipment and Wearables team have developed a range of devices and wearables that promote comfort, ease of use and address existing barriers to user-uptake, including the incorporation of smartphones for data analysis purposes. Such advancements frame the methodology behind discreetly analysing a number of health indicators and performance guides to improve the efficiency of movement, recovery, and overall quality of life.
