Abstract et bio de Thomas Watteyne

Internet of Things (IoT) technology, and in particular its industrial flavor, is progressing at an incredible pace. It is now possible to instrument a factory floor with hundreds of low power mesh devices which offer over 99.999% end-to-end reliability, over a decade of battery lifetime, certified security and network-wide synchronization to within 15uA. These networks are going through tremendous developments, including on determinism (guaranteeing latency), size (the "smart dust" project), agility (using multiple radios at the same time) and ranging/localization. This technology is at the heart of the core networking research being done at the Inria-EVA team, and describing what we are doing is the first objective of my presentation.
My second objective is to show you that these network, although they are active research topics, are readily available as building blocks for end-to-end systems and applications. In the Inria-EVA team, we have deployed over 1000 sensors on 3 continents, in application including smart city, environmental sensing, and Smart Agriculture. In the latter project (, we have deployed 120 sensors in a peach orchard in Mendoza, Argentina, to be able to predict frost events. The network has been running, and the team is now working on the machine learning to turn the raw soil/air temperature/humidity sensor data into a real-time frost alert system.

Thomas Watteyne (, @thomaswatteyne) is an insatiable enthusiast of low-power wireless mesh technologies. He is a researcher at Inria in Paris, in the new EVA research team, where he designs, models and builds networking solutions based on a variety of Internet-of-Things (IoT) standards. He is Senior Networking Design Engineer at Analog Devices, in the Dust Networks product group, the undisputed leader in supplying low power wireless mesh networks for demanding industrial process automation applications. Since 2013, he co-chairs the IETF 6TiSCH working group, which standardizes how to use IEEE802.15.4e TSCH in IPv6-enabled mesh networks, and recently joined the IETF Internet-of-Things Directorate. Prior to that, Thomas was a postdoctoral research lead in Prof. Kristofer Pister’s team at the University of California, Berkeley. He founded and co-leads Berkeley’s OpenWSN project, an open-source initiative to promote the use of fully standards-based protocol stacks for the IoT. Between 2005 and 2008, he was a research engineer at France Telecom, Orange Labs. He holds a PhD in Computer Science (2008), an MSc in Networking (2005) and an MEng in Telecommunications (2005) from INSA Lyon, France. He is Senior member of IEEE. He is fluent in 4 languages.
