Sensor networks employ low-power devices to acquire information directly from the environment and then wirelessly transmit the information to gateway nodes. Application of these networks includes monitoring natural events such as wind speed, rain fall and human activities such as intrusion detection, and safety monitoring. Sensor network technology is in the early stages of development and presents unique research challenges because of the system wide energy constraints.

Topics of the Seminar:

  • Sensor Networks
  • Limitations
  • Technology currently used
  • Applications
  • Trends
