Thursday, May 4, 2017
11 AM - 12 PM

In this talk, I will introduce several of our ongoing Internet of Things (IoT) projects such as the GreenOrbs and CitySee. In these projects, we have deployed over 1000 sensor nodes, with a total of over 10,000 sensors, for monitoring water, CO2, NO2, automobiles, and human activities. I will also present TagSys, a passive RFID based luggage tracking system, which has resulted in the ACM MobiCom 2014 Best Paper Award and has been deployed in Beijing International Airport with more than 110,000 tags. I will focus on a few key ideas such as passive diagnosis, sensorless sensing, and communication as a sensing, the opportunities and challenges in extremely large scale IoT systems, and the impact of IoT on the new industrial revolution.
