EIS is a research group on Electronics for Instrumentation and Systems. The group PAI (Andalusian Research Plan) TIC-182 is composed of five doctors and three engineers. It is mainly devoted to smart sensors, and more specifically to smart tactile sensors and sensor networks. We are especially interested in applications for rehabilitation or assistance to the disabled or elderly. The group has designed electronics based on ASICs, microcontrollers, PSoCs and FPGAs and also sensor networks with serial or wireless buses.

The sense of touch is often associated with emotions and its role in other functional areas is dismissed. In fact, humans are very clumsy under these conditions. Therefore, although research effort has focused mainly on other senses like vision, there has been also a great interest in the sense of touch and devices that could emulate the skin.

Sensor networks

A key issue in smart sensors is their ability to communicate with others. This allows building sensor networks that collect information from the environment.
