Dr. Kasım Sinan Yıldırım will give a seminar on “Research Challenges for Intermittently Powered Wireless Embedded Systems”, on October 19th, 2017, at 13:45, in the department meeting hall.

The abstract of the talk is as the following:

Recent advancements in microelectronics technology enabled harvesting energy from radio frequency (RF) sources which is sufficient to power low-power embedded systems in practice. Nowadays, the growth of RF-​p​owered computing paradigm is bringing new research opportunities and challenges, leading to a promising class of low-power embedded systems, so called Intermittently Powered Devices (IPDs). By taking existing RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) technology as a foundation, computational RFIDs (CRFIDs) are emerging IPDs that allow sensing, computation and communication without batteries—replacing existing battery-powered sensor networks. In this talk, I will provide an overview of new research opportunities in this emerging domain and introduce a few research problems, in particular regarding ​programming challenges and safety issues.
