The goal of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) Sensory Systems Technical Committee (SSTC) is to foster research, development, education and industrial dissemination of knowledge relating to the emerging field of sensors and associated processing systems. The activity is multidisciplinary, drawing upon knowledge and expertise from fields such as biology, physics, mechanics and chemistry, in addition to areas more traditionally associated with the IEEE such as electrical and computer engineering, computer science and information technology.
