UC Berkeley and Intel researchers are developing TinyDB database technology to acquire information from a network of tiny wireless sensors.
Wireless sensor networks can be used to predict equipment malfunction, prompt users to take medication, and perform environment and habitat monitoring. In 10 years, they will be nanoscale devices.
Because of energy constraints, sensor motes have to deal with low bandwidth and possibly intermittent communication links; they must… read more
