Sensor networks: A Bridge to the Physical World

Speaker:  Tassos Dimitriou – Athens, Greece
Topic(s):  Architecture, Embedded Systems and Electronics, Robotics


The distribution of networked sensors in the environment offers exciting new possibilities for sensing and monitoring. Sensors can be placed close to multiple signal sources so that, collaboratively, they can aggregate information as needed, sense and reason about wide-area phenomena and provide a distributed awareness using only local communication among nodes and total absence of co-ordination. 

This lecture leverages the recent advancements in microprocessor, wireless and MEMs technologies in order to explore the different dimensions associated with the design and deployment of sensor networks. We will introduce key hardware and software aspects of sensor networks and highlight some of the central ideas used in infrastructure establishment, routing, information brokerage, and security that have been central to various commercial, industrial, and medical and environmental applications.
