Bournemouth University student presents his thesis at a global conference


A Bournemouth University MSc student studying the Internet of Things (IoT) with data analytics has had his thesis published at an international conference organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in Los Angeles.

Dawid Polanski attended the 18th Annual International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems held in California from May 30 to June 1, where he presented his work on modeling IoT devices in industrial settings.

The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization for electronics engineering. It is the trusted voice for engineering, computing and technology news worldwide, hosting 1900 conferences a year.

Dawid’s thesis, Modeling Virtual Sensors for Indoor Environments with Machine Learning, aimed to model smart sensor measurements of different ambient conditions in office spaces, including temperature, humidity, and light.

The modeling of the devices was based on measurements collected by test benches deployed at the University of Geneva. It was tested over a period of two years.

Dawid’s thesis offered important findings for industrial environments where additional sensing infrastructure can be difficult and expensive.

Master of Science student Dawid said, “It was a great experience to be able to attend a global conference in Los Angeles to present my work and contribute to the scientific community, not just learn from it.

“This marked a major milestone in my career as I went from being a student to being a true researcher and scholar. I am so excited to continue researching, learning and contributing to the field.
