    Talk Title: Towards a Smarter Wireless Sensor Networks, UAVs and Smartphones: our experiences in São Paulo, Brazil

    Abstract: This talk will summarize the work led by Dr. Jó Ueyama in the field of wireless networks at ICMC/USP (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil). The focus of this presentation will be to show the progress achieved on our prototype in wireless sensor networks (WSN) for urban river monitoring. Currently, our group has four undergraduate, two master, and four PhD students. They all investigate various topics in the field of wireless networks. This includes smart grids, the use of UAVs (and wireless sensor networks) for precision agriculture as well as HCI for smartphones targeted to the elderly public. The key question of our group is: how can we provide a smarter WSN, UAV and smartphone? The talk will include a summary of each line of research.

    Biography: Dr. Ueyama is an Associate Professor at the University of São Paulo since 2008. Jó concluded his PhD at Lancaster University, UK and worked as a posdoc at the University of Kent-UK before heading back to Brazil. His multidisciplinary research in Brazil has been featured in several local and national medias. For further info, please check out www.icmc.usp.br/~joueyama
