Orange Institute #5

Sensor networks as the new growth opportunity – Madrid

March, 2011

For two days in Madrid, Orange Institute Faculty and participants explored the growing number of connections between people, technology, and the built and physical world. What we found is that regardless of the domain -be it the environment, the world of media and entertainment, or our own bodies-we are moving from a passive, reactive mode to a proactive, dynamic systems model where data drives our decision making. The enablers of this dynamic response are sensors arrayed in network of all kinds.
