BSAC Joins the IPSO Alliance for Sensor Enabled Smart Object Communication

The IPSO Alliance, the organization describing the "Internet of Things," declared the latest association of the University of Berkeley, Sensor, Actuator Center and California (BSAC) with IPSO. This merger emphasizes the drive in the industry to apply the Internet Protocol (IP) for the communication of smart objects.

The BSAC is a University Cooperative Research Center/Graduated National Science Foundation Industry for the Microactuators and Microsensors which helped in launching the sensor-enabled computing called "smart dust". The objective of the "smart dust" is to establish a complete sensor communication system whose computing can be incorporated into a cubic millimeter package, provoking progressive advancements in integration, miniaturization, and energy management.

John Huggins, executive director explained that BSAC is a society entailing  40 technology ranked institutes and companies and the BSAC membership portrays eminence related to technology and customary advents. He also added that the BSAC will encourage the performance of industry in commercializing major technologies and that IPSO is nourishing the commercialization of modernized technologies that supports the research activities of BSAC.

Geoff Mulligan, the chairman of IPSO remarked that the capability of the smart-object technology has reached its ceiling with the wireless and broadband networking in association with micro-sensors. The 'smart dust’ conception molded on the IP will revolutionize the demand for advancements in the national security, health care, energy conservation and many other spheres, he added.
