From Simon Barker
I have just read your EETimes article about the forthcoming wireless sensor network panel coming up in April this year. I found it very interesting and, as per your finishing statement, I have a question for the panel that I would love their opinion on.
My question is:
I am considering starting a wireless sensor network and energy harvesting company after completing my PhD in the area. However, with the push for WSN industry standards and the need to prove the feasibility of very large scale networks, has the time for startups in this area passed? Is it now an industry where the established small businesses and the electronics giants will develop the technologies and standards to the required levels?
It would be great if this was a chosen question.
Thanks very much
