The pedagogy and practice of enabling context-aware sensing in distributed systems

102 Engineering Unit A
3:30 - 4:30 p.m.

Distributed networks of wirelessly connected intelligent cyber-physical systems have become indispensable tools in science, industry, and defense. From chaotic swarms of autonomous vehicles to dense internet of things sensor networks in smart infrastructure, the overarching role of these platforms is to serve as information transducers that perform complex sensor fusion tasks in physically hostile or extreme environments. Advances in software defined radios, machine learning techniques, and distributed control algorithms have coalesced to create new operational paradigms and application spaces for these systems, but critical technology gaps remain when considering their physical interaction within the electromagnetic spectrum. The impact of these gaps extends from complex cybersecurity vulnerabilities to maintaining basic wireless connectivity for emergency command and control. This talk will discuss recent advances in applied electromagnetics that seek to improve physical resiliency and integrate context awareness into these wireless systems, and provide some perspective on the development of educational content that seeks to bridge knowledge gaps within the multidisciplinary landscape that is required to synthesize and deploy these systems.
