Sensors and fluid measurement

Our Centre is carrying out world-leading research into the design, development and use of novel sensors and measurement techniques in collaboration with its commercial spin-out, Surrey Sensors Ltd. Our sensor systems are now being used in a wide range of sectors including Formula 1, motorsport, avionics, UAVs, healthcare, commercial agriculture and elite sport.

Our capabilities

Below are a few examples of sensors we have developed in response to a particular customer need. All sensors can be supplied independently, or together with integrated transducer arrays and data acquisition/management systems.

Commercial versions are available through Surrey Sensors Ltd.


We are developing our fluid sensing systems for clinical research and medical diagnostics with the Centre for Biomedical Engineering here at Surrey.
