ABSTRACT OF TALK
The possibilities for wireless sensors have excited scientists and
researchers, the business community, military and government
officials, and consumers alike for many years. The potential
applications for wireless sensors and transducers (sensors combined
with actuator mechanisms) are limited only by the imagination.
Sensing alone is not enough for many applications-the ability to act
on the sensory data is also required. Small, battery-powered
platforms capable of sensing and actuation are beginning to appear,
with increasingly compelling technology on board. Richard Newton,
D.K. Arvind, and Roger Meike are all heavily involved in the design,
production, programming and utilization/deployment of wireless
sensors. In a three-way discussion, they each will offer their own
perspectives and experience in this rapidly evolving technology arena.
