We stand on the threshold of the next phase of technology evolution â?? the era of the nano-scale sensor.? As the information age has progressed from computer to networks to the cloud, our ability to store and share knowledge now impacts every aspect of our lives.? The next step is to bring awareness to the information system through a distributed network of sensors.? Nanotechnology is a key enabler of sensitive sensors.
HP’s Central Nervous System for the Earth (CeNSE) is a meta-project involving multiple HP Labs focused on enabling a planetary system of a trillion nanoscale sensors and actuators embedded in the environment and the networks to exchange their information among analysis engines, storage systems and end users.? CeNSE will revolutionize human interaction with the Earth in a manner as profound as the Internet revolutionized our interactions with other humans.? The massive amounts of data harvested and subsequent actions to be taken will create an enormous increase in demand for computing systems and services.? HP Labsâ?? research covers all aspects required to create such a system from the nano-scale sensor node to wireless and photonic networks to storage and computation to data visualization, information theory and analysis.? CeNSE will provide real-time monitoring of surroundings for mission-critical business, environmental, health and safety applications, such as factory operations, merchandise tracking, large-structure integrity, virus tracking, food safety, energy use, and many more.
