Embedded everywhere, hundreds of tiny nodes detect activities in the real world, generating data that is used to feed different systems, keeping the users informed about the current system state and supporting them in the decision of how to actuate next. Sensor networking technology is being applied in many environments and with multiple purposes: transportation and logistics, for structural health monitoring, habitat monitoring, precision agriculture, tourism, smart ambient, sports and entertainment, amongst others. These networks are composed of low-cost, low-power miniaturized sensor and actuator nodes that communicate untethered across short distances to carry out their collective tasks. For these sensor networks to work, sophisticated architectures and efficient communication protocols must be developed to allow large amount of nodes collect, process and disseminate data.
In this seminar, the current state and future deployment of WSNs and familiar technologies and applications will be explored.
