While the original proposals of smart dust were to release these dust-like particles in the air allowing them to be essentially buoyed by air currents and relaying information about the environment and people in real-time, proposals have been narrowed for specific application on military battlefields, sensing environmental hazards, and reading brainwaves.
Biggest challenge for smart dust is to achieve noiseless data transmission in the manufacturing environment.
The MicaZ smart dust motes from Crossbow Technology are embedded into the environment at fixed positions.
Smart dust could have a reat future as a military tool.
It is hoped that the smart dust system would be commercially viable in about seven years' time.
Next, a laser--say, on an airplane flying over a desert sandstorm--would read the spectrographic signature of the smart dust to see what agents the particles had encountered.
Nonetheless, combining rapidly evolving technologies--microelectronic devices, programmable, or smart, materials, micromachines, distributed computing systems, and active control mechanisms--to create smart dust and other microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) offers new capabilities that can be exploited for a variety of purposes.
Expanded Speed Data from Inrix's Smart Dust Network Will Enhance Offering to BMW, Garmin, Tom Tom and Other Customers
To create historical Nationwide Average Speeds, Inrix analyzes years of data from the Inrix Smart Dust Network and then uses sophisticated statistical techniques to process this information and compute average speeds for about one million miles of roadway at the traffic segment link level and nearly 500,000 miles of roadway at the Traffic Messaging Channel (TMC) level.
