Two D3 seminar will take place on the 20th of March. The first will be by Enrico Natalizio, MCF (HDR) at Université Technologique de Compiègne at 10.30 am in room A008.
The second will be by Nicola-Roberto Zema, postdoc à IFSTTAR à Lille at 2.00 pm in room A008.
High-end IoT systems in 5G
Integration of embedded computing, sensing and wireless communication that has fueled the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), will also lead to the design and exploitation of a new generation of cooperative autonomous systems for 5G communications. The components of such systems will be high-end devices, such as autonomous machines, UAVs and robots, self-driving cars, virtual reality-based systems. Such systems pose new challenges to wireless networks, which have been traditionally designed for mobile broadband applications. Most current scenarios for device-to-device communications are based on the design and exploitation of simple sensor-actuator systems, and their architecture remains dependent on computation and battery limitations. Such constraints are not applicable for resource-rich advanced systems that must always perform at the highest levels of reliability, and may be tasked with demanding communication requirements for specialized missions and tasks, such as road-safety, disaster prevention and management or focused monitoring of sensitive sites and infrastructures. This talk will highlight 5G potentials in terms of wireless communication, networking technologies and architectures to support High-End IoT systems. Emphasis will be given to breakthrough research in device/network co-design solutions that efficiently integrate sensing, computing and communication.
Network Control of Cyber-Physical Systems
A cyber-physical system (CPS) is composed by physical elements
where each one strictly implements: (i) computational, (ii)
communication and (iii) control capabilities. I will present my
personal contributions to the communication and control
capabilities of CPSs. In a Wireless Sensors and Robot Networks
environment, the recent advancements in Mobility Control and
Consensus Control will be discussed. In detail, the topics will be:
(i) the use of Controlled Mobility to optimize network
performances; (ii) Distributed Networked Control in CPSs and (iii)
Cosimulation/Emulation systems for CPS.I will also show my
medium-term research project that tries to achieve control over QoS
for cooperating robots.
