The days of the cord seem to be dwindling. It seems that everything has a wireless connection, from the magnetic fields used to charge batteries to the latest satellite technology. So how is this happening in the world of sensors, and what kind of work can a student do towards furthering wireless research? Alumnus Jeremy Gummeson will be here to discuss various sensor networks from a student’s perspective, more specifically for our viewing pleasure: programmable RFID units.
Mr. Jeremy Gummeson graduated from UMass Amherst in 2006 with the BSCSE. As a kid growing up, Mr. Gummeson spent many days dismantling his household’s electronics, just to explore what was inside the “black box.” After many years playing music, he decided to come to UMass, and left knowing that embedded systems engineering was for him. Jeremy’s first engineering “job” was a research position within UMass’ own Computer Science department. After a successful completion of his Masters and PhD in sensor networks, Mr. Gummeson’s research has taken him to many places, working with a plethora of wireless protocols and with many interesting people!
