Imagine a gym shirt that tells an app your body temp and heart rate, or could alert you before an asthma attack happens. What if your plant fertilizer reminded your cell phone when it was time to water? The Internet of things will soon make things like this a reality.

But how to power those trillions of devices? In the next ten years, the Internet of things could result in the disposal of about 300 million batteries a day across the globe. Michigan Engineers are working to solve this problem, creating ultra low-power wireless integrated circuits & systems that are able to make quick decisions locally that save energy in processing power.

About the Professor: David Wentzloff (http://web.eecs.umich.edu/~wentzlof/) is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (http://eecs.umich.edu/) at the University of Michigan College of Engineering (http://www.engin.umich.edu/). His research focuses broadly on low-power integrated circuits (ICs) for wireless communication in energy-constrained and volume-constrained applications. His Wireless Integrated Circuits & Systems Group (http://www.eecs.umich.edu/wics/) focuses on synthesizable all-digital radios and radio building blocks, wireless body sensor networks, and radios and interfaces for the mm-scale class of computers.
