AUGUST 2018
Friends and Colleagues, 

Greetings from the Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE). We hope that your summer continues to be both productive and enjoyable.

FAU’s Sensing and Smart Systems pillar is going strong and growing stronger each day. In this newsletter, we share some exciting updates about our faculty, our community programs, our projects, and our most recent class of undergraduate researchers. As I’ve written in each of these newsletters, it’s an exciting time to be at FAU, and to be working in Sensing and Smart Systems!
 
If you are working in Sensing and Smart Systems or the Internet of Things, we’d love to hear from you. Reach out by email, drop by for a visit, or help us welcome a distinguished visitor as part of the Pillar Seminar Series. If you’d like to invite and host a visitor, please let us know; we still have dates available in the schedule for the 2018-2019 series.

FAU is building the future of Sensing and Smart Systems. We invite you to build it with us.

Best wishes,

Jason O. Hallstrom,
Director, I-SENSE@FAU
