Workshop on Wireless Sensor Networks
(1-2 February, University of Cambridge (UK))
Failure to monitor, manage and maintain infrastructure can have catastrophic results. At present, the main challenge facing engineers seeking to embed sensors within infrastructure is how to obtain the data collected. Recent advances in communications technology have opened up the possibility of embedding networks of wireless sensors in tunnels, pipelines, roads, bridges, buildings and reservoirs. These sensors are capable of transmitting high-density, multi-parameter, real time data on the infrastructures condition, and will revolutionise our ability to monitor and manage infrastructure at a lower cost.
This two-day workshop will provide an overview of the latest developments in wireless sensor technology, concentrating in particular on potential applications in civil engineering. In addition to profiling recent case studies, the workshop will also address the potential need for a generic platform for making informed engineering decisions.
The format of the workshop is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates from different fields to share their extensive knowledge and expertise. The programme includes presentations, demonstrations, round-table discussions, networking opportunities and dinner in Jesus College.
The workshop is free and will run from 2pm on 1st February until 1pm on 2nd February. Overnight accommodation can be arranged upon request.
This workshop is organised by Smart Infrastructure, a knowledge integration community funded by the Cambridge-MIT Institute. Smart Infrastructure is a community of researchers at Cambridge University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who work closely with industrial partners to develop and test innovative sensor systems.
