Book on Wireless Sensor Network Applications

31st December 2010

I recently edited a book titled "Wireless Sensor Networks: Application-Centric Design". It is an open-access book, meaning that you can download and read it for free, by following the link below. My contribution (the preface) can also be downloaded in isolation from our ePrints server, at http://eprints.ecs.soton.ac.uk/21705/.

This book is not intended to be a comprehensive review of all WSN applications and deployments to date. Instead, it is a collection of state-of-the-art research papers discussing current applications and deployment experiences, but also the communication and data processing technologies that are fundamental in further developing solutions to applications. Whilst a common foundation is retained through all chapters, this book contains a broad array of often differing interpretations, configurations and limitations of WSNs, and this highlights the diversity of this ever-changing research area. The chapters have been categorised into three distinct sections: applications and case studies, communication and networking, and information and data processing. The readership of this book is intended to be postgraduate/postdoctoral researchers and professional engineers, though some of the chapters may be of relevance to interested master's level students.

Alex Wood being awarded the Best Presentation prize
Our presentation entitled "DejaView: help with memory, when you need it" was awarded the best presentation prize at the SenseCam 2012 Symposium. The prize was awarded by Steve Hodges from Microsoft Research. Abstract: Promising findings in the use of wearable memory aids such as SenseCam have been widely reported. However, to date, there has been relatively little consideration of the potential for offering memory help in real-time during daily living. Such assistance, in the form of proactiv... [more]

Launch of My New Website
1st January 2011
http://geoffmerrett.co.uk/
Today sees the launch of a major website redesign. Visually, it might not look like much of a change, but a lot has changed under the bonnet. Hopefully there's now a lot more information on here and, more importantly for me, it is much easier for me to actually keep it up-to-date... The three most noticeable additions that you may have spotted are: 'News and Impact': a page that contains information on major developments in my research, and specifically some of the ways that this research has...
