The First Workshop on Wireless Sensing Proceedings



Kang B. Lee, James D. Gilsinn, Richard D. Schneeman, Hui-Min Huang


The First Wireless Sensing Workshop was held on June 4, 2001, at the Sensors Expo/Conference at the Rosemont Convention Center in Chicago, IL. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), SENSORS magazine, Sensors Conference, and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer (IEEE) cosponsored the workshop. The Smart Transducer Interface Standard IEEE 1451, various wireless technologies such as the wireless Ethernet standard (IEEE 802.11x) and Bluetooth, and related applications were presented and discussed. Then an open forum discussion followed. The open forum was successful in determining the appropriateness of various wireless communication technologies for sensor interfacing. It has also begun the dialogue in assessing the general wireless requirements of sensor manufacturers and users.
