LENSS - Laboratory for Embedded & Networked Sensor Systems

The Laboratory for Embedded & Networked Sensor Systems at Texas A&M University performs research in wireless adhoc and sensor network protocols, architectures and applications. We currently focus on: distributed coordination algorithms such as localization, time synchronization, clustering, and topology control; QoS in sensor networks; failure resilience and fault isolation; energy management; cognitive multichannel MAC protocols; and wireless security.

We gratefully acknowledge the funding support from NSF, ONR, NPS , EPA, KAUST, Rockwell Collins, BCSMPO and Texas A&M.
