Professor Anthony Ephremides (ECE/ISR) is the principal investigator for a new National Science Foundation major research instrumentation (MRI) grant. "Development of Energy-Efficient Embedded Systems for Wireless Sensor Networks" is a three-year, $400,000 grant that will develop experimental prototypes of intelligent, energy-efficient embedded systems for use in nodes of sensor networks. The goal is to translate ongoing research on energy efficiency to the development of advanced sensors that incorporate as many energy-saving features as possible, while at the same time remaining light, small, inexpensive and relatively flexible.

Co-PIs for this grant include the following ECE faculty: Assistant Professors Rajeev Barua (ECE/ISR), Gang Qu (ECE/UMIACS), and Peter Petrov. Assistant Professors Pamela Abshire (ECE/ISR) and Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR), and Associate Professor Bruce Jacob are also investigators for this project.

Dr. Ephremides gave the keynote address at the IEEE SECON Conference, the premier conference on sensor networks, Sept. 27, 2005 in Santa Clara, Ca. He spoke on "Making Sense out of Sensor Networks."
