Research: On-body sensor network for sports applications, Marcelo Pias

In this talk I will give an overview of a handful of system issues we face in designing on-body sensor networks for sports applications. I will first introduce the overall Sesame vision and its technical requirements to support experimentation with sprinters. Then I will describe our choices for wireless sensor platforms (from Bluetooth, Zigbee to Wifi), the issue of synchronisation of heterogeneous sensor systems and discuss briefly our current on-body sensor development: in-sole pressure sensor systems synchronised with inertial sensors.

Research: Water Distribution Network System: Channel Modeling Study, Min Lin

Historically, wireless sensor networks have mainly addressed military applications. However, in recent years, many civilian applications, such as managing inventory, monitoring product quality and monitoring disaster zones have emerged. Various technical issues, such as power consumption, radio propagation models, routing protocols, sensors etc need to be considered for different applications. In this project, we propose a particular application for wireless sensor networks, specifically a water distribution network monitoring system. A possible communication model for the water distribution monitoring network was proposed. In this presentation, I will present some results that have been published for a paper and my current works on the new results, which can potentially lead to an analytical model of the network system.
