报告题目 (Title): Emerging Research Topics in Communications

报告专家 (Speaker): Dr. George K. Karagiannidis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece



主持人:范平志 教授

内容提要(Outline of the Talk :

In the first part of this talk three research areas will be briefly presented emerging research topics in communications, i.e., Wireless power transfer, Communications for biomedical engineering, and Communications for robotics.

To provide a better sense of the research opportunities, the second part of this talk will focus on Communications for robotics, where a specific example will be provided. Integrating hybrid robots and communications applications is a major challenge for both robotics and Comms research & development and a key enabler for a range of advanced services and facilities. Drones (flying robots) have become a viable sensor platform, due to the advances in communication, computation, and energy storage technology, as well as the development in aerodynamic materials. The drones-aided cellular networks have significantly attracted the research interest due to the offered opportunities and the corresponding limitations. However, so far, research has mainly focused on the use of drones in cases of emergency and coverage of remote locations, as well as in cases of environmental incidents and disasters.  On the other hand, drones could act as micro Base Stations in order to achieve cell offloading and capacity increase, enabling the service for large numbers of users and devices. This talk will present preliminary results of our research on using drones as an economically and operationally efficient alternative for the extension of the current telecommunication infrastructure, in order to meet the future communication needs.
