Seminar on Wireless Sensor Networks

The University of Virginia Applied Research Institute (ARI) presents a spring seminar series hosted by Battelle. The series will allow ARI to showcase the depth and range of technology being developed at the University of Virginia for the growing scientific and technology community in the region.  The seminars are free.  Each seminar will be held at Battelle Memorial Institute in the U.Va. Research Park in Charlottesville, Va. Get directions here. You can also participate in the seminars online through Live Meeting.

Feb. 11 at 4 p.m.- Jack Stankovic, BP America Professor of Computer Science – “Wireless Sensor Networks in Action”

Wireless sensor networks (WSN) composed of large numbers of small devices that self-organize are being investigated for a wide variety of applications such as military surveillance and tracking, and large-scale assisted living facilities.  Current research for WSN is widespread.  However, many of the proposed solutions are developed with simplifying assumptions about wireless communication and the environment, even though the realities of wireless communication and environmental sensing are well known.  Participate in this session online through Live Meeting. A software download may be required.

    Assisted living facilities surely need this devices as they care and supervise for one of the most vulnerable group of the society.
