The Power of Miniature Sensors an Exploration to Smart Dust
Tushar Upadhyay | Jigar Bhavsar
Abstract: Smart Dust is a tiny device with exceptional capabilities, measuring just a few millimetres in size. It integrates sensing, computing, wireless communication, and an independent power supply into a compact volume, all at a minimal cost. The devices are designed to be small and lightweight enough to remain suspended in the air, similar to a typical dust particle. These unique properties make Smart Dust a valuable tool for monitoring real-world phenomena without disrupting the original process. Currently, the feasible size of Smart Dust is around 5mm cubed, but there is a possibility that it could eventually become as small as a speck of dust. The individual sensors of Smart Dust are commonly referred to as "bits" due to their miniature size. These devices are also known as MEMS, which stands for micro-electro-mechanical systems.
