The city of Chongqing in China hosted the 14th meeting of the ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG7 working group. The meeting was sponsored by the Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications. This working group is in charge of the standardization activities of wireless sensor networks, and has liaisons with other working groups and standardization groups related to Internet of things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M) communications. In this meeting, members discussed editorial and technical comments to the new standard on under water acoustic sensor networks (UWASN) proposed by South Korea. There were also several action points on the testing framework for wireless sensor networks proposed by China, and new topics with big data proposed by Finland.
CISTER acts as the liaison partner between the DEWI project and the ISO/IEC JTC 1/WG7 and was represented by Ramiro Sámano Robles. DEWI will be producing technology reports based on the use cases of the industrial domains in the project. These technology reports will be subjected to comments and voting from the ISO committee members. The meeting in China was used to receive technical and editorial comments on the first DEWI technology report on active flow control for aeronautics applications. The ISO meeting was preceded by a one-day workshop hosted by the Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications. CISTER presented the general overview of the aeronautics use case on active flow control for skin drag reduction.
