Our environmental engineering researchers are working alongside international bodies to have sustainable sanitation implemented in developing countries.
Griffith software engineers provided human movement monitoring system technology to elevate global wearable technology leader, Jaybird to an estimated worth of $95 million.
World-first technology is harnessing the remarkable properties of graphene and could launch the next generation of mass produced, low-cost micro-devices through a novel micro-fabrication process.
3D scanning technology has brought back to life ‘Mephisto’ the sole surviving German A7V tank from World War 1, which currently resides at the Queensland Museum. Researchers pinpointed the history of this unique relic, before developing an interactive virtual display, placing the tank into its original war-time position in Villers-Bretonneux, France, using advanced forensic software and GPS technology to create a ballistic analysis.
SABEL Labs is an intrapreneurially enterprise and research group based in Griffith University School of Engineering in Brisbane. We have over a decade of experience in developing sports technologies and in particular wearable technologies. Our team use technologies to enhance sports performance, conduct collaborative and often cross disciplinary research and as B2B consultancy for product development.
As a member of the Queensland Sports Technology Cluster, it reaches into the wider local and international community and is a member of the Australian Sports Technologies Network and the International Sports Engineering Association.
Resilience in the natural environment
The increase in population size and density continues to place significant stress on the natural environment. Integrated strategies to provide clean water and clear air are paramount in urban and rural environments to ensure a healthy natural environment, an uncontaminated food supply and acceptable air quality.
This research aims to develop holistic solutions to some of the most pressing problems in the world including the reduction in air pollution and biological contamination of the air, water supply for humans, agriculture and environmental flows.
Critical infrastructure, interdependencies and resilience
The resilience of the built environment continues to be tested by intense storms, drought, the impacts of natural events and the displacement of peoples (refugees) due to war and famine require improved management of the built environment in Australia and internationally. The supply of essential services (electric power, telecommunications, food, water, sanitation, shelter, transport, medical facilities) and the ability to rapidly deploy facilities and infrastructure to areas destroyed are fundamental challenges.
Enabling technologies in sport and health
Physical solutions to major health problems have the potential to reduce drug use and increase the quality of life. Exercise is beneficial to all levels of society, from young children, through to the elderly, and in pre-operative and post-operative recovery. Performance-based assessment of implants and prosthetics can be used to optimise recovery. Monitoring and support systems in medical and sports applications require miniaturisation, environmental protection, low power operations, minimal user interactions and energy harvesting technologies.
Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre
