Track 7 - Wireless Sensor Networks



Industrial applications of wireless sensors can also enable important advances in science. Environmental monitoring with wireless sensors networks (WSN) is of particular interest for agriculture, forestry and disaster mitigation. These low-cost sustainable technologies can work with low power and are not dependent on any existing electrical network. Once the data are collected in remote areas they have to be transmitted to a central database for processing and further analysis. A wired infrastructure to support such transmissions is not viable for technical and economical reasons. In the last couple of years we have witnessed an incredible evolution of wireless technologies that can provide a cost efficient solution to this problem.


In this workshop we will present the use of various low-cost and sustainable wireless technologies for sensing, data gathering and distribution.


  • WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks): theory and hands on laboratory
  • IPv4 and IPv6 networking
  • Data Gathering with Mobile Devices
  • WSN case studies
  • Telecommunication and Radio-propagation Principles
  • Low Cost Wireless Solutions for short and long distance with hands on laboratory


  • Marco Zennaro, Ph.D, International Centre for Theoretical Physics
