CONET Newsletter

The First issue of the CONET Newsletter is now available. Admittedly, a bit delayed? But yes, it has several cool articles on Sensor Nets.

A short guest column, by Prof. John Stankovic, entitled “when sensor and actuator networks cover the world.” addresses two specific challenges for sensor networks: the extraction of knowledge from the raw sensor data and the necessary openness to increase cooperation and interconnection of different sensor networks.

Moreover, and not all, the “member profile” section highlights CISTER, a top-ranked Portuguese Research Unit based at the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, with an overview of their research projects and contributions.

CONET is the EU FP7 network of excellence on Cooperating Objects, merging the fields of embedded systems for robotics and control, pervasive computing and wireless sensor networks. CONET will focus on establishing the field of Cooperating Objects within the research and industrial community, thus strengthening the position of Europe in this research landscape.
