-Congrats Nafiseh! You are a doctor! Tell us, did you have a nice party after the duties during the big day?
-We had a dinner but no big party. Maybe later... Now it's relax and vacation time. It's been a tough spring.
Assistant Professor Sofie Pollin, KU Leuven, Belgien opened the event and the well attended E:1407 learned that modern wireless sensor devices are often constrained by batteries that determines the size of the device.
Even though the nodes in a networked sensing system are mostly asleep and doing nothing, they have to wake up now and then. Waking up and checking activity consumes power which also goes for the processing and sending of data.
Finding clever approaches on scalable, powertight wake-up schemes for wireless sensing systems is what our latest doctor Nafiseh Seyed Mazloum has been occupied with in her PhD-research.
