To establish a research infrastructure for realising minute (around 1 cubic millimetre) semiconductor specks which can sense, compute and communicate wirelessly. Specks, scattered or sprayed on the person or surfaces, will collaborate as programmable computational networks called specknets. This will allow seamless linkages between the material and digital worlds, and enable truly ubiquitous computing.
Speckled Computing is a Government Research Grants project funded by SHEFC. Carried out in collaboration with and others. For further information please refer to http://www.specknet.org.
