Wireless Sensing: Material Identification and Localization

Friday, September 25, 2020 - 2:20pm to 3:10pm

You are invited to the talk from an external speaker from Georgia Tech this Friday, 09/25/2020, from 2:20 pm to 3:10 pm EDT. The talk is a part of the CSCE 791: Seminar in Advances in Computing. Please join the virtual lecture via the link below:


Abstract: Wireless communication has truly transformed the world. It has enabled us to connect the entire globe, and made it simple to reach people separated by thousands of miles. However, what receives less attention are other interesting properties of these wireless signals. The fact that wireless signal spread out in all directions and bounce off objects, make them a power lens to look at our world through. This facilitates sensing of the world through wireless signals. In this talk I present two main ideas: Wireless localization which measures the time wireless signals take to travel between two devices, and wireless material identification which analyzes the effect of a liquid on wireless signals, in order to identify the liquid.
