Zhejiang Lab

The Research Center for Smart Sensing

In the face of scientific and technological challenges in the precision, dimension, energy efficiency and environmental tolerance of sensors that will come along with the development of artificial intelligence, the center is carrying out research into the mechanisms, methods, processes, detection and integration of ultra-sensitive perception technologies that cover sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste sensing, optical fiber sensing, developing an on-chip sensing system and other advanced sensing technologies in order to continuously improve the performance of a single sensor/sensing system. The aim is to make breakthroughs in not only the range but also the depth of existing comprehensive sensing capabilities, get rid of the constraints of time and space, achieve ubiquitous intelligent sensing, and promote the in-depth application in deep-earth and deep-sea exploration efforts, as well as complex environment monitoring and life science exploration activities.
