Advances in wireless sensor networks for hostile environments
The Sensors and Instrumentation Knowledge Centre (part of the Electronics, Sensors and Photonics Knowledge Transfer Network) is organising this one-day event.
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are being increasingly used in hostile environments, such as high temperature and vibration, where traditional 'hard wired' sensor systems can either not be used or the cost of the associated wiring infrastructure makes installation prohibitively expensive. One such hostile environment is in aerospace applications. There is considerable interest in the use of wireless sensing technologies in this application area. The aim of this meeting is to bring together research organisations involved in developing wireless sensor networks for aerospace and other hostile environments in order to share ideas and disseminate the knowledge and experience gained by these organisations to the wider WSN community.
