Track 6 - Wireless Sensor Networks
(TENTATIVE PROGRAM)

 

Introduction

Industrial applications of wireless sensors can also enable important advances in science. Environmental monitoring with wireless sensors networks (WSN) is of particular interest for agriculture, forestry and disaster mitigation. These low-cost sustainable technologies consume little power and are not dependent on the existing electrical network. Once the data are collected in remote areas they have to be transmitted to a central database for processing and further analysis. An example of a distributed platform that can be leveraged to store and process the data is the CLOMMUNITY project.  A wired infrastructure to support such transmissions is not viable for technical and economical reasons.

Objective

To learn how to use wireless sensor networks (WSN) in scientific, industrial, and particularly for environmental variables monitoring (temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, rain rate, insolation, nuclear radiation and so on), as well as the techniques to successfully process the collected data. Reference to the CLOMMUNITY distributed platform for WSN will be highlighted.
