UH Engineers Receive NSF Grant to Improve the ‘Internet of Things’

“The Internet of Things needs to incorporate almost everything, including simple sensors and devices,” said Pan. “We often find ourselves at a paradox between needing high transmission speeds using simple, low-power devices while guaranteeing the sent messages are secure.”

_The project will specifically investigate ID card technology and how signals transferring to and from these simple cards can be transmitted more efficiently. _

“The ID cards make everything more complex because there are a large number of cards communicating on the same network. We need to consider how we will be able to decipher between individual cards and if we want each one to access different things,” said Pan.
