Two second-year Phelma students have been invited to present at an IEEE conference alongside international PhD candidates and research scientists. The invitation is truly unexpected—but it is no hoax! An article authored by students Emrick Sinitambirivoutin and Florian Passelaigue was selected for the conference. In March Emrick presented at the Wispnet 2018 IoT conference in Chennai, India.
The pair’s paper is on a network of wireless connected sensors they designed and tested during their first-year internship in India. Their system monitors crops to improve yields and save water. Farmers receive recommendations for irrigation on their smartphones that could help them reduce their water consumption by more than 40%.
