Talk: Procrastination Might Lead to a Longer and More Useful Life
Prabal Dutta, David Culler, and Scott Shenker (UC Berkeley)
Compressing data at application
level is the right trend for sensor and other mobile networks. For
sensor networks specifically we might end up with optimization problem
where the balance between energy waisted for compression and storage
needs to be balanced with the energy spent on transmission.
Application level compression can be further
enhanced with application specific compression dictionaries.
Another issue in sensor networks is
synchronization of transmission time. Is it both a computers science
and physics problem.
