Signal Processing for Sensor Networks - Martin Vetterli
A sensor network is a spatio-temporal
sampling device with a wireless communications infrastructure.
In this talk, after a short overview of the Center on Mobile
Information and Communication Systems
we will address the following questions:
1. The spatio-temporal structure of distributed signals, with
an emphasis on the physics behind the signals,
and results on sampling
2. The interaction of distributed source compression and transmission
with a particular focus on joint source-channel coding
3. Some applications in environmental monitoring, like for
example tomographic measurments
This is joint work with T.Ajdler, B.Beferull-Lozano, R.Cristescu,
H.Dubois-Ferriere, R.Konsbruck (EPFL), P.L.Dragotti (Imperial)
and M.Gastpar (UC Berkeley). The work is sponsored by the Center
on Mobile Information and Communication Systems (www.mics.org),
funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Title: How Can Theorists and
Implementers Work Together in
Developing Future Wireless Systems? - Bob Broderson
As the complexity of wireless
systems increase, the need for a closer interaction between those
focused on theory and those trying
to implement these new approaches becomes ever more critical.
Some examples of future systems will be described that will
demonstrate this need, along with "open questions" that have arisen.
