SomSeD: An Interdisciplinary Approach for Developing Wireless Sensor Networks
Source: Hamburg University of Technology
The research field "Self organized mobile Sensor and Data networks" (SomSeD) is introduced. Its purpose is the investigation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). It benefits from interdisciplinary exchange between various institutes of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). Due to different design constraints (such as energy-efficiency and package size) compared to well known classical computer networks, all aspects of the development of WSNs must be reconsidered. This paper describes the advantage of having experts of various faculties both in computer science and electrical engineering in a single research field. In addition to the introduction of the participating institutes, the deployment of a WSN on the TUHH campus will be outlined.
