Honeywell says wireless

sensor networks will help solve world challenges, in a keynote address today,

June 10, at the 23rd annual Sensors Expo & Conference. Beth Wozniak,

president of Honeywell Sensing and Control, says sensors and networking

technologies are leading to pervasive sensing, producing a "world of

interconnected sensors," along with a huge number of industrial, environmental,

economic, and societal benefits.

Changing the world with

wireless sensing

Wireless sensors will

continue to change the world as the Internet continues to connect individual

computers and users, as it has over the past two decades. "With these emerging

smart sensor technologies, we will be able to help meet many of the most

important technical, economic and social challenges our society faces

today-including energy conservation, health care, transportation safety, and

natural disaster response."

Wireless sensor networks can

be self organizing, self healing, and self sustaining, Wozniak said.

Advancements in wireless technologies and standards-such as ISA100, MEMS,

miniaturization, batteries, energy harvesting, and data analysis-will

contribute.
