Second Workshop on Wireless Sensing Proceedings



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


The second Workshop on Wireless Sensing was held on October 4, 2001, at the Sensors Expo & Conference at the Philadelphia Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), SENSORS magazine, Sensors Conference, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Instrumentation and Measurement society?s Technical Committee on Sensor Technology (TC-9), and IEEE sensors Council cosponsored the workshop. NIST is an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce?s Technology Administration. Its mission is to help increase U.S. industry competitiveness through advanced research, standards, and technology collaboration. Recently, there has been considerable interest from industry and government in applying wireless technology to sensor-based applications. Wireless technology has seen an explosion over the last couple years with the introduction of Bluetooth and higher speed wireless Ethernet. These technologies are moving from the office environment to the industrial plant floor as engineers discover how flexible and easy to use they are.
