About the Clarity Centre:
The CLARITY CSET http://www.clarity-centre.com/ is a partnership
between University College Dublin and Dublin City University, supported by
research at the Tyndall National Institute (TNI) Cork. CLARITY is a
collaboration between a number of specialist teams across the institutions
who have already strong track records in sensor technology. It builds on work
undertaken by the SFI-funded Adaptive Information Cluster, and is led by a
team of Principal Investigators with expertise in computing science and
informatics, engineering, biomechanics and exercise physiology.
The Clarity Centre is located in the School of Computer Science and
Informatics, University College Dublin (UCD) in Dublin, Ireland. UCD has over
22,000 students including 2,500 international students from over 80 countries
and is situated on a large modern campus 4 km to the south of the centre of
Dublin.
The Irish Government (SFI/Forfas) Baseline Study that ranked Irish
research groups identified the School of Computer Science and Informatics at
University College Dublin as the best Computer Science department in the
country, having "a very strong impact internationally in their research."
