- A large new project worth $39M and slated for 5 years starts. The project, funded by Lilly Endowment, will develop IoT systems to enable smart agriculture and smart manufacturing. DCSL researchers, Saurabh, Edgardo, and Heng, will be leading the charge on building a reliable wireless mesh network, data analytics to detect failing sensor nodes, and visualization of the data and the network status. The overall project will run at various locations in a 10 county region in the Wabash Heartland and is meant also to create jobs in these counties.
