Back >>JP Students Attended 2012 IoT Conference

Oct 28th, 2012

    During 24th ~ 27th Oct. 2012, the 2012 International IoT (Internet of Things) Conference, organized by International IoT Committee, was held in Wuxi, China. Four students from Joint Programme between QMUL & BUPT, Yiming Wang, Siying Wang, Yi Tan and Hongqian Rong, attended the live demo and poster session in the conference with their supervisor Dr. Yue Chen. As the only undergraduate team in the session, their product received a great deal of respect from other participants worldwide.

    On 24th October, the group demonstrated their test bed to the experts, scholars from academy and engineers from the industry. The aim of the project is to design a Test Bed for Smart Grid Based on Home Area Network. The test bed mainly focuses on two aspects: the intelligent selection between energy sources and the automatic energy control in home appliances. The data link layer adopts 802.15.4 protocol, and each mote in the system is assigned an IPv6 address. A variety of sensors spread within the system are used to monitor the environment and to report data to the centre in real-time. Besides that, this test bed can also make energy prediction dynamically to make further intelligent decision and can also be remote controlled via mobile devices. Apart from the five people above, Dr. Michael Chai from QMUL, Dr. Tiankui Zhang from BUPT and other three Joint Programme students Yuan Chang, Jianlun Zhong, Xun Dai also participated in this project and made their indispensible contribution to the success.
