Presentation Summary

• With respect to a future where everything of value is tagged and everything of importance is monitored, we are now beyond questions of if, and into the realm of how and when.
• What protocols are needed to make this vision a reality, and what hardware platforms will be needed to support those protocols?
• This talk will present some of the existing and future hardware and software needed for the internet of things.

Speaker Biography (Kristofer Pister)

Kris Pister is a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley and is a Co-Director of the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC). From 1992 to 1997 he was an assistant professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles.
He created the term "Smart Dust" and pioneered the development of ubiquitous networks of communication sensors, a concept that has since become a vital sector of technology R&D. During 2003 and 2004 he was on industrial leave as CEO and then CTO of Dust Networks, a company that he co-founded to commercialize low-power wireless sensor networks. In addition to wireless sensor networks, his research interests include MEMS-based microrobotics and low-power circuit design.

Company Profile (Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center, University of California)
