Outlines:Wireless sensor networks have moved out of the research lab and into production, enabling a wide range of application-focused startups to emerge. An IEEE standard, an industrial consortium, and a few hundred million in venture funding have built a foundation of technology on which applications can be rapidly developed. This talk will include a brief history of the technology, a discussion of currently available products and their capabilities, and near-term applications suitable for startups.
