Cyber-physical systems

============================================================================

http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/cyber-physical/?WT.mc_id=USNSF_53

Term: Cyber-physical systems

integrate sensing, computation, control and networking into physical objects and infrastructure,

"address some of the most pressing national priorities."

Areas:
1. Transportation and energy
2. Health care and medicine
3. Environment and sustainability

### Of these three, our potential NSRC contribution is likely in 1 & 3 - energy and environment

Water wise / Wildsense

============================================================================

http://research.unl.edu/annualreport/2013/research-leading-to-water-wise-sensor/

Target: agriculture, farming

"Underground wireless sensor networks use sensors buried in soil to gather information 
about soil moisture, temperature and changing conditions. 
Information is sent wirelessly to a center pivot irrigation system or a base station, 
providing accurate, real-time data to help farmers determine when and how much to irrigate."
