Time: 10:00, Sept. 15, 2017
Location: At the Meeting Room of Nation Green Communication and Network Joint Research Center, in HUST, WuHan
Presenter: Prof. Yonghui Li, School of Electrical and Information Engineering, University of Sydney.
Abstract:Connected smart objects, platforms and environments have been identified as the next big technology development, enabling significant society changes and economic growth. The entire physical world will be connected to the Internet. The intelligent network for automatic interaction and processing between objects and environments, referred to as the Machine to Machine Communications (M2M) for Internet of Things (IoT), will become an inherent part of areas such as electricity, transportation, industrial control, utilities management, healthcare, water resources management and mining. Wireless networks are one of the key enabling technologies of the IoT. They are likely to be universally used for last mile connectivity due to their flexibility, scalability and cost effectiveness. In this talk, I would like to give an overview of wireless M2M development, architecture, key challenges, requirements and our recent works in this exciting area.
