“Green Internet of Things – An Energy Harvesting Perspective”

Recently, Internet of Things (IoT) have attracted lot of attention due to their pervasive nature and helping us to better understand the environment around us. Availability of energy – rather green energy- is always a bottleneck to utilize the full potentials of IoT. To overcome this, energy harvesting systems are getting their space in the domain of IoT. The talk comprises of discussion of the existing energy harvesting sources and energy harvesting systems for IoT. The talk also includes various energy prediction models for maximizing the energy harvesting in IoT.

Dr. Faisal K. Shaikh is working as an Associate Professor at Department of Telecommunication Engineering, Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, Jamshoro. He received Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany under supervision of Prof. Dr. Neeraj Suri (DEEDS Group).
Dr. Shaikh is investigating energy efficient communication protocols in wireless sensor networks (WSN) for mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive applications. He is interested in environmental monitoring, vehicular adhoc networks, smart homes, telehealth (body area networks), and internet of things. He has published more than 30 refereed journal, conference, and workshop papers. His research is financially supported by several grants and contracts, such as MUETRnD, ICTRnD and PSF.
