      Hi Daniella and apologies for not being able to make it to the chat today since I was away for work purposes!! Oh yeah what happened to David??

      1- Yes it does by reducing energy consumption (through reducing battery usage in wireless devices) hence less wastage or resources. Also we are looking at wireless energy harvesting so recycling energy usage!!
      2- Yes it would by understanding how we can efficiently collect energy from sources around us and also describe how we can make all wireless devices help each other in finding the best way to communicate.
      3- I am most definitely and I think it is the way forward to have a better place to live at!
      4- Get a demonstrator built for the concept of cooperative wireless sensors and go around schools and public events to show people that by simply changing some instructions in a code or connection on electric component you can save a descent amount of energy.

      I hope I answered all your questions and happy to answer any more you have 😀 If you manage to find David before we do please let us know 😉
