This track focuses on the use of smart sensor technologies and information processing for monitoring and analysis of industrial systems, factory automation systems and related applications. The track focuses on architectural principles, design techniques and implementation models for networked embedded sensor systems along with methods for their evaluation and/or performance analysis. Experience reports and case studies making appropriate scientific and technical contributions in this area are also solicited.

Topics under this track include (but not limited to)

  • Networked Sensing
    • Novel components, devices and architectures
    • Devices and protocols for the (Industrial) Internet of Things
    • Energy harvesting in sensor networks
    • Network and system architectures
    • Security analysis and protocols
    • Communication protocols for sensor networks deployed in industrial scenarios
  • Information Processing
    • Sensor data processing, data mining
    • (Distributed) Signal processing and data analytics
    • Sensor network modeling, simulation, measurements, and analysis
    • Network health monitoring, QoS management and dependability
