I said in an earlier thread that I was interested in embedded sensing as a career. It turns out that remote sensing is closer to what I was thinking of. I've heard of embedded sensor networks being used to: - help forecast earthquakes (hours before they occur, not weeks or months or years) - combat terrorism (sensors to detect radiation, explosives, hazardous chemicals) - run structural diagnostics (detect areas of high pressure and stress, etc.) - run medical diagnostics So would remote sensing be a good career field for me? I'm an Electrical Engineering major. And where would I work if I went into RS? What are the big names, labs, companies in this field?
