Weekly Seminar: “Data mining in the IoT era: practical examples and a peek into future developments”

22 June 2016 - 22 June 2016

ABSTRACT: After a decade of studies, theoretical and applied research, wireless sensor networks are entering our lives in a very real way, in the form of the so called Internet of Things. Examples are the increasing number of sensors in cars, home appliances, intrusion detection / smart parking systems and wearable devices. Initial challenges were [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Microwave propagation through atmosphere: the role of the tropospheric spatial and temporal variations of water vapour distribution. Analysis of experimental data obtained by times series of SAR images and GPS data”

25 April 2016 - 25 April 2016
Speaker: Giovanni Nico, Ph. D.

ABSTRACT: The problem of how the atmospheric characteristics affect the propagation of microwaves is of main concern in several Remote Sensing techniques, especially for SAR interferometry and GPS signal reconstruction. Microwave propagation through atmosphere is mainly affected by the spatial and temporal variations of water vapour distribution in troposphere. In this talk some experimental results [...]

Weekly Seminar: “The ICT EMPhAtiC project: main research and demonstration results”

09 March 2016 - 09 March 2016

ABSTRACT: The goal of the EMPhAtiC project was to develop, evaluate and demonstrate the capability of enhanced multicarrier techniques to make better use of the existing radio frequency bands in providing broadband data services in coexistence with narrowband legacy services. The project addressed the Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) application, and in particular the evolution of [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Fabricación Digital: una útil herramienta para proyectos de I+D+I”

17 February 2016 - 17 February 2016
Speaker: Milena Orlandini, Tinkerers Lab.

ABSTRACT: La Fabricación Digital está en auge y todo gracias a la impresión 3D que se ha popularizado en los últimos años. Pero la Fabricación Digital va mucho más allá de la impresión aditiva. Son muchas las disciplinas que la conforman, como la electrónica, programación, diseño 2D y modelado 3D, routers CNC, cortadoras láser, plotters, [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Physics and mathematics of radio wave propagation in cellular wireless communications”

24 August 2015 - 24 August 2015
Speaker: Prof. Tapan K. Sarkar, Prof. Magdalena Salazar-Palma

ABSTRACT: The objective of this talk is to illustrate that an electromagnetic macro model can accurately predict the dominant component of the propagation path loss for a cellular wireless communication. The reason a macro model can provide accurate results that agree with experiments is because the trees, buildings, and other man made obstacles contribute second order [...]

Weekly Seminar: “A Sparsity-Perspective to Time-Frequency Signal Representations”

03 August 2015 - 03 August 2015

ABSTRACT: This talk considers nonstationary signal analysis in view of the signal sparsity properties. We examine these signals, which arise in numerous applications, within the framework of compressive sensing (CS) and sparse reconstructions. We present two general approaches to incorporate sparsity into time-frequency signal presentation (TFSR). In the first approach, quadratic TF distributions (QTFDs) are [...]
