Title: Designing Energy-efficient Wireless Protocols for the Internet of Things
Abstract: Battery-powered wireless nodes in the Internet of Things (IoT) require energy-efficient wireless networking protocols to achieve sustained operation in practical deployments. In this talk, I will first provide background on energy consumption in embedded, networked devices. I will then present a variety of energy-reducing approaches that I have used in my research on wireless protocols: MAC-layer duty cycling, cross-layer protocols, and cyber-physical systems. I will conclude with a discussion of my teaching philosophy and plan.
