The 2017 IEEE Sensor Technology Conference will be held on 13th of December 2017 in Melbourne Australia.
Sensors and sensor networks have long been used for industrial and other purposes, and environmental monitoring, and sensors are key elements of modern Intelligent Systems. However for outdoor and mobile applications, providing a reliable and economical source of power for the sensor(s) can be a significant design issue. The problem is particularly acute in the case of remote area operations. Similar difficulties may arise with biomedical applications, particularly those involving implants or autonomous system operation. In all such situations, energy harvesting and scavenging from the immediate ‘environment’ may be used to power the sensor networks. Power management and low-power transmission of data will also be significant design issues.
New or novel sensors or sensor applications will be discussed at the symposium. New sensors applied to industrial processes or building automation have the capacity to improve system operation and reduce energy costs.
Communication between sensors and or a base station is a fundamental aspect of sensor applications and will be a topic of the conference.
Energy harvesting methods, new or novel sensors and sensor communication aspects will be discussed in this symposium. We aim to contribute to a better understanding of the practical problems and possibilities of design, manufacture and operation of sensor networks.
