Sensing the world around us

It is estimated that there will be over 30 billion internet of things (IoT) devices by 2020. Because of this major global phenomenon, the initiative sought to address the advancement of a network of smarter, interactive physical IoT devices with intelligent sensor technologies embedded.


Under the direction of KAUST Distinguished Professor and Senior Vice President Jean M.J. Fréchet, invitees discussed progress made on five interdisciplinary projects funded through OSR. The three-day program was designed to aid efforts to develop state-of-the-art sensor technologies for monitoring the environment, analyzing marine ecosystems, subsurface oil and gas applications, wireless sensor networks and personalized health monitoring.
