Sensorcast Invited to Present at DARPA/UCI Workshop on Mobile and Intelligent Sensor Networks

Sensorcast has been invited to be a poster presenter at the DARPA/UCI Workshop on Mobile and Intelligent Sensor Networks on February 8th, 2016. This is organized by the UC Irvine Office of Research. From the announcement:

“Sensor networks are crucial for collecting data and understanding the physical world. This workshop will explore fundamental challenges in design and deployment of heterogeneous sensor networks that can benefit from mobility and intelligent distributed decision making. Distributed decision making and deployment is fundamental to large heterogeneous sensor networks as global and central algorithms are not feasible. The fundamental goals of the network deployment are improving the capacity/throughout, connectivity, coverage, bandwidth efficiency, mobility, delay, and security of the heterogeneous sensor networks.

The goal of the workshop is to foster discussion, discovery, and dissemination of the state-of-the-art in this area and identifying potential next generation breakthrough technologies.”

GSW Awarded Grant From Knight Foundation

The John S. and James L Knight Foundation has awarded the Global Sensor Web (GSW) a modest grant to further our efforts. Ariel Levi Simons submitted our proposal via the Wildwood School in LA. Levi has been instrumental in helping us find our 1st sub-project (DECO), and finding some earlier funding for that research. Details can be found here
