Here you can find a
day-to-day journal documenting my summer '05 experience at the UMASS
I will be working with
Vinod, a grad student at UMASS. He is pursuing a PhD in the ECE
department. His work involves ZigBee-connected sensor network and
their communication with Bluetooth-enabled devices.
In more broader aspect, I
will be introduced to different wireless technologies and problems
within the field.
Some of those include:
ZigBee, Bluetooth, Radio Frequency Identification
(RFID), Java and Java for mobile platforms, wireless networks, time
synchronization, energy efficiency and constraints, networking.
At the beginning I will be
working towards the building of a GUI (using Java's Swing) for a
client-server application. One device will be pulling information
from the ZigBee network and transferring it to another device using
I will have to learn loads
of Java, some network programming, and familiarize myself with the
