Impressions from the INSS 2007 Panel

Next Generation Topics for WSN

Hide Tokuda, Keio University, Japan - Programming and packaging - make motes more usable

Richard Muller, UCB - Batteries, solar into packages, localized information processing/decision making, 2nd grade electronics (efficient, lower performance), long-term robustness - having a solid and broad education is key (materials, electronics, and CS)

Peter Boda, Nokia Research, Finland - SensorPlanet sees a phone as an optimal interface to humans. sensors will be integrated in phones.

Michael Beigl - Q: is there a way for research to have early access to sensor/MEMS technology? RM - It's a $$ question both in principle and especially when you are in a hurry to get things done.

HT: Design space from homogeneous, heterogeneous to global scale of WSNs.

RM: CAD has brought electronics design/production a long way but there is still little support for the design of networked systems.

Trust: Can we trust all the people if sensors are truly global and all things interact? RM: It's information that we first must trust... HT: There are better solutions ahead through interaction.

Smaller sensors vs. large heterogeneous sensing systems (cars, airplanes): do the same paradigms apply in both domains? HT: Networking technology should be able to cover all these applications.

Impressions from TTX4 in Boston, Apr. 29, 2007

TinyOS Technology Exchange was up in Boston following IPSN 2007. David Culler, Phil Levis and the working group chairs informed about work within the TinyOS Alliance. Next to the demo sessions the release of the Xubuntu Linux CD with a working TinyOS 2.0.1 installation is the most notable thing that happened. Summarizing the sessions, panels and numerous other discussions here is my most notable impressions:

New working group guys on the block:

David Moss (Rincon) is donating CC1100 development kits for people willing to pitch in.
