Weekly Seminar: “Clock Synchronization in Wireless Sensor Networks: from Traditional Estimation Theory to Distributed Signal Processing”

29 July 2016 - 29 July 2016
Speaker: Yik-Chung Wu, Ph.D.

ABSTRACT: In this talk, we will review the advances of clock synchronization in wireless sensor network in the past few years.  We will begin with the optimal clock synchronization algorithms in pairwise setting, in which maximum likelihood (ML) estimator from traditional estimation theory is the major tool.  Then, we will discuss the more challenging networkwide [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Graph Signal Processing: Stationary Graph Signals and Topology Inference”

13 July 2016 - 13 July 2016
Speaker: Alejandro Ribeiro, Ph.D.

ABSTRACT: A network can be understood as a complex system formed by multiple nodes, where global network behavior arises from local interactions between connected nodes. Often, networks have intrinsic value and are themselves the object of study. In other occasions, the network defines an underlying notion of proximity or dependence, but the object of interest [...]

Weekly Seminar: “BATS: Network Coding in Action”

11 July 2016 - 11 July 2016

ABSTRACT: Network coding can significantly improve the transmission rate of communication networks with packet loss compared with routing. However, using network coding usually incurs higher computational and storage costs in the network devices and terminals. For example, some network coding schemes require the computational and/or storage capabilities of an intermediate network node to increase linearly [...]

PhD Thesis Defense: Privacy-Preserving Energy Management Techniques and Delay-Sensitive Transmission Strategies for Smart Grids

In the context of this PhD thesis defense, Onur Tan presents his work realized at CTTC. The smart grid (SG) is the enhancement of the traditional electricity grid that allows bidirectional flow of electricity and information through the integration of advanced monitoring, communication and control technologies. In this thesis, we focus on important design problems [...]

Weekly Seminar: “The use of unmanned aerial vehicle for geo-hydrological processes analysis and monitoring”

07 July 2016 - 07 July 2016
Speaker: Daniele Giordan, Instituto di ricerca per la Protezione Idrogeologica (IRPI), Italy

ABSTRACT: In the remote sensing research, recent technological developments have resulted in increase in field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), becoming more common and widespread in civil and commercial context. In particular, the development in photogrammetry and in technologies associated (i.e. RLS digital cameras and GNSS/INS systems) allows the use of UAV platforms for various [...]
