We will discuss our experiences designing new IoT systems to address several power and power grid monitoring problems. In particular, this talk will focus on three systems—Power-Blade, Triumvi, and GridWatch—and their motivation, design, and deployment. These systems all share a similar architecture, require new sensor devices and edge-cloud data processing, and wrestle with power management and networking. But they ultimately demonstrate both the tremendous potential and the significant challenges of this nascent computing class.

Prabal Dutta is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California at Berkeley, where he co-directs the CONIX Research Center. Previously, he was a Morris Wellman Faculty Development Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan. His interests span circuits, systems, and software, with a focus on mobile, wireless, embedded, networked, and sensing systems with applications to health, energy, and the environment.
