Studies from University College Cork Reveal New Findings on Industrial Informatics (Ensuring Survivability of Resource-Intensive Sensor Networks Through Ultra-Low Power Overlays)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Current study results on Industrial Informatics have been published. According to news reporting from Cork, Ireland, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) typically have limited power supply and networks are often expected to be functional for extended periods. Therefore, the minimization of energy consumption and the maximization of network lifetime are key objectives in WSN."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from University College Cork, "This paper proposes an overlay, energy optimized, sensor network to extend the functional lifetime of an energy-intensive sensor network application. The overlay network consists of additional nodes that exploit recent advances in energy harvesting and wake-up radio technologies, coupled with an application specific, complementary, ultra-low power sensor. The experimental results and simulations demonstrate that this approach can ensure survivability of energy-inefficient sensor networks."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Simulating applications using energy-intensive video cameras and air quality sensors, combined with the proposed overlayed ultra-low power sensor network, demonstrates that this approach can increase functional lifetime toward perpetual operation and is suitable for WSN applications in which complementarity exists between the required energy-intensive sensors and low-cost sensors that can be used as triggers."
