ONLINE SEMINAR ON WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS AND ITS APPLICATIONS
The seminar on wireless sensor networks and its applications are organized by the IEEE sreyas student branch under the IEEE Signal Processing society chapter on 29th April 2020 by Dr.L.Nirmala Devi.
Dr.L.Nirmala Devi (Associate professor, department of ECE, university college of engineering, OU) has received her B.E, M.E, and Ph.D. degrees on Electronics and Communication Engineering from the department of ECE, OU. She has a teaching experience of more than 20years in subjects like wireless communications, wireless sensor networks, IoT, and data. Her research interests include Ad-hoc networks, wireless communication and sensors, signal processing machine learning, and AI. She is also working on various research projects sponsored by the ministry of electronics and information technology (MeiTY) and has published many papers in various national and international journals and IEEE conferences. She has been selected for “outstanding women in engineering award” during the annual women’s meet in the year 2018.
Introduction and webinar
The webinar started at 11:00 am and lasted up to 12:00 pm. The speaker Dr.L.Nirmala Devi madam started the webinar after a welcome by the IEEE Signal Processing society chapter chair. Around 204 students registered themselves for this program. The program started by defining sensors and networks.
A brief description of wireless networks, the difference between wireless networks, and adapt networks is explained. Students are taught about sensor node components, factors influencing sensor network design, sensor networks communication architecture, use of sensors, and sensor networks simulators are explained. Applications are explained in detail using real-time examples. The program ended with a question and answer session and a thank you note to the respected speaker. The session was informative, providing basic knowledge to students.
By the end of the seminar, students gained a basic knowledge of sensors and wireless networks and their applications in daily life. Students found this program informative, interesting, and highly beneficial.
