"Wearable Computing: when aspiration meets reality ..."
Research in Wearable Computing has made good progress in recent years. There is, however, still a deficit between the aspiration for unobtrusive, extended-wear, on-body network of wireless sensors, which is context-aware and which operates in a “smart” environment, and the realities of sensor device miniaturisation and battery lifetimes.
We will explore the potential of using wireless sensor networks in Wearable Computing, which is tempered by our experiences of research in Speckled Computing (www.specknet.org). The talk will be illustrated with videos of examples of applications of Speckled Computing in 3-D animation, healthcare, human-robot interface, and sports.
Brief Bio of the Presenter:
DK Arvind is a Reader in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom, and CITRIS Visiting Professor at the University of California at Berkeley (2007-11). He was previously for four years a Research Scientist in the School of Computer Science, Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA. He is the founder Director and Principal Investigator of the Research Consortium in Speckled Computing (www.specknet.org) – a multidisciplinary grouping of computer scientists, electronic engineers, electrochemists and physicists drawn from five universities, to research the next generation of miniature wireless sensor networks. The Consortium has attracted research funding in the excess of £5.2 Million since 2004 from the Scottish Funding Council, and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (equivalent of the National Science Foundation in the US). In the past his research has been funded by EPSRC, US Office of Naval Research, Scottish Enterprise/Cadence Design Systems, Sharp, Hitachi, Panasonic/Mastushita, Agilent, ARM and SUN Microsystems. His research interests include the design, analysis and integration of miniature networked embedded systems which combine sensing, processing and wireless networking capabilities.
