It came originally as a suggestion from Ford Motor Company: a university‐based institute that could function as an industrial club, providing a clearing house on information on sensor technology and capabilities for conducting and sponsoring its own research in sensor technology of industrial relevance. Ford looked to Southampton to provide such a facility, and the result was that in 1987, the University of Southampton Institute of Transducer Technology was born. The only remarkable fact about it was that given the prevalence of sensor technology, no one had thought of it before.
