UCSD researchers show latest efforts

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Saving the planet one sensor at a time, the backers of the Trillion Sensor Summit here shared their visions and some research working toward a fully instrumented world.

“I believe in a world with abundance — a world without hunger, with medical care for all, with clean energy for all, no pollution,” said Janusz Bryzek, chairmen and CEO of the event. “One of the components creating this world is a sensor at the bottom of the pyramid for mobile health, the Internet of Things, and wearable applications. In order to get there, we need to completely transform the economy.”
