About the Event

Languages, compilers, design automation tools, network protocols, and run-time systems can be used to enable computer system amateurs to design and/or use embedded sensing and communication systems. This talk will survey work on sensor network design automation, distributed real-time air quality sensing, personal localization, power consumption analysis, and a communication system designed to support censorship, jamming, and traffic analysis resistant communication among family members and friends.


Robert Dick is interested in embedded system design and runtime management techniques that consider variable and nonideal physical operating environments. He is also interested in designing embedded systems to optimize the first-order quality metrics of their users.
