Ephremides is PI for NSF MRI grant on wireless sensor networks

Professor Tony Ephremides (ECE/ISR) is the principal investigator for a new National Science Foundation major research instrumentation (MRI) grant. "Development of Energy-Efficient Embedded Systems for Wireless Sensor Networks" is a three-year, $400,000 grant that will develop experimental prototypes of intelligent, energy-efficient embedded systems for use in nodes of sensor networks. The goal is to translate ongoing research on energy efficiency to development of advanced sensors that incorporate as many energy-saving features as possible, while at the same time remaining light, small, inexpensive and relatively flexible. Co-PIs for this grant are Assistant Professors Rajeev Barua (ECE/ISR), Gang Qu (ECE) and Peter Petrov (ECE). Assistant Professors Pamela Abshire (ECE/ISR) and Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR), as well as Associate Professor Bruce Jacob are also investigators for this project.

Dr. Ephremides gave the keynote address at the IEEE SECON Conference, the premier conference on sensor networks, Sept. 27. He spoke on "Making Sense out of Sensor Networks."
