Why HP Thinks Sensors Will Lead to The Next Big Wave of Computing -
Published: May 28, 2010 "The basic premise of CeNSE is to create a
worldwide network of sensors that is connected to the Internet, which in
turn creates a feedback loop for objects and people. An example HP
often gives is putting thousands of sensors on a bridge, to measure
vibrations." "HP foresees services arising out of sensor data. If
traffic services were based on sensor data from bridges and roads, then
sensor data would allow companies to "build awareness" and perhaps even
deliver services that people will pay for. Consumers may be willing to
pay for the "best decision" about which route to take to a destination,
he explained. That decision would come from a combination of sensors in
the road and real-time analytics performed by HP, or a company that
processes the data."
