Register for the Workshop

How would you like to set the temperature of your air conditioner using an email? Or perhaps inform your oven in advance to heat your food before you return home? Wireless Sensor technology will let you do just that. 

Wireless Sensor Network is the latest cutting edge technology that is all set to revolutionize the way we live and work. It would not be an exaggeration to predict that in the decade to follow, we would be surrounded by gadgets coupled with wireless sensor networks which can be accessed remotely via the Internet. This can be envisaged as the transformation of Internet into a physical network.

WiSor, at Quark deals with the theoretical aspects of Wireless Sensor Networks as well as advanced practical applications of the same through the latest industry-approved software platforms. The workshop is a must-attend for all those who wish to go beyond the scope of classroom learning and explore an exciting new domain.

Date: 1st February 2013.
