Concepts and Methodologies for Integrated Smart Sensors

The Department for Integrated Sensor Systems, located in Wiener Neustadt and Krems, develops concepts and methods for smart sensors and sensor systems.

As an answer to the social challenges of the 21st century our modern world today is increasingly shaped by digital communication and sensor networks. Digital data creation, processing, and networking are key issues for lifestyle gadgets as well as for high tech manufacturing plants. Research and development of innovative concepts for high performance sensors and sensor networks is at the heart of the department, providing solutions for a widespread range of applications, such as building automation, industrial automation, medicine, traffic control, environmental monitoring, and multi-media and home appliances.

The diversified, interdisciplinary expertise of the department revolves around the core topics of the four research units and includes sensor development and manufacturing in micro- and nanotechnology, microelectronics, function-, system-, and circuit integration, communication technology, and modelling/simulation. The department combines all scientific expertise necessary for the development of sensor systems from the transducer technology up to complex system integration aspects in a single research team, an asset not found elsewhere in Austria.

Current research activities focus on wearables, building automation, smart traffic systems, biomolecular diagnostics, spintronics, metamaterials, thermal sensors, magnetic materials and sensors, hybrid microsystems, physical biosensors, data management and coordination in sensor networks, localization and clock synchronization, security in sensor networks, analytical and numerical modelling, and sensor systems simulation and optimization.
