Instrumenting the World with Wireless Sensor Networks
University of California, Los Angeles/CENS, US
wireless sensor networks, embedded networked sensing
Embedded Networked Sensing Systems, commonly referred to as sensor networks, will become a pervasive resource for society--they will monitor contaminants in soil, air and water; support detailed characterization of carbon cycling and endangered ecosystems; and serve as early warning systems for critical civil infrastructure. Across this wide range of applications, Embedded Networked Sensing systems promise to reveal previously unobservable phenomena. This talk will describe several motivating science applications and outline the technical challenges posed by these long-lived, autonomous, massively distributed and physically coupled systems.
