Abstract: Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is considered as one of the important and fast growing technologies that are penetrating through almost every aspect of life. The prospect, with the modern hat of Internet of Things (IoT), reflects future potential compliments that of the Internet. Research and development of concepts related to Sensor Networks are driving towards taking the experiments from the lab into the field with emphasis on various modes of communications including Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications. A wide range of testbeds has been established for remotely testing design ideas on various physical environments. Examples like the WISEBED European federation of testbeds, the APAN sensor network WG, and the Harvard motelab. These and others have created real test environments and stimulated research into architectures and solutions. Virtual support for extending the capabilities of such environments has also been explored. This aims at enabling the mix and match among available resources of multiple testbeds in formulating workable federation. Applications like wildlife monitoring, human comfort and smart buildings, horticultural or precision farming, healthcare support systems etc are a few examples of typical WSN applications.

The talk will provide key highlights to Wireless Sensor Network technologies. It will introduce examples taken from the experience of AUT SeNSe research lab. These include outdoor spatial mapping through microclimate weather monitoring and wildfire hazard detection, and in-door spatial mapping with emphasis on cool stores thermal mapping. Further the talk will shed the light on the area of WSN federated testbeds and related requirements of M2M communication.

Biography: Adnan Al-Anbuky http://sense.aut.ac.nz/adnan.cfm received his BSc, ME and Ph.D. degrees from Baghdad University, Salford University and UMIST, Manchester, U.K., in 1969, 1971 and 1975 respectively. During 1975 to 1995 he has assumed a number of academic administration positions including being dean of the faculty of engineering within Yarmouk University of Jordan. Professor Al-Anbuky joined Switchec/ NZ on 1996 and started establishing an industrial research unit driving toward increasing the level of automation within the telecommunication power systems service industry. This has led to numerous patents and publications on top of various concepts for products. Late 2005 he joined AUT as a professor and head of electrical and electronics engineering department. The establishment of the Sensor Network and Smart Environment (SeNSe) research centre http://sense.aut.ac.nz/  in mid-2006 has led to a number of projects that benefited both the local and international communities. Adnan is a member of advisory group of AUT Technology Park and member of the editorial board of the Journal Sensors and actuator networks. He has more than 10 granted patents and numerous publications. He has also chaired good number of specialized conferences and workshops.
