Modeling, Communication Connectivity and Resource Allocation
Speaker: Kin K. Leung, Imperial College, London
Department: Electrical Engineering
Location: Engineering Quadrangle B205
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 6, 2014, 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
In this talk, the speaker will give an overview of his current research work in the area of wireless ad-hoc, mesh and sensor networks at Imperial College. By focusing on vehicular networks, the speaker will present new stochastic traffic models for vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) in urban environments and their applications to quantify communication connectivity and identify locations for placing road-side communication nodes to optimize connectivity. Results on distributed optimization for ad-hoc networks with power control will be discussed. The talk will then be concluded with a discussion on future work to extend the traffic models, optimization techniques and cross-layer protocol designs for VANETs.
