'Living IoT' on board bumblebees | KOMO Radio
Drones are useful but they have their limitations. They can't fly as long as things in nature — such as bumblebees. That's why UW engineers have created a small sensor pack that is light enough for a bee to carry. Vikram Iyer, a doctoral student in electrical and computer engineering, is interviewed.
