Two essential technologies for mobile Internet-of-things (IoT) applications include localization of objects and energy-efficient communication to enable device battery life of multiple years. LTE has attempted to address both, but because the measures were implemented after the baseline standards were developed, the solutions are ineffective (e.g., LTE PRS) or incomplete (e.g., category 0 UEs). In this talk, I discuss some recent results and key challenges for enabling scalable, accurate, ubiqitous localization and energy-efficient, short-packet communication for a large number of devices.
Howard Huang received a B.S. in electrical engineering from Rice University in 1991 and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from PrincetonUniversity in 1995. He has spent his entire career as a research engineer at Bell Labs, contributing to the fundamental understanding of multiple antenna (also known as multiple-input multiple-output, or MIMO) techniques and their application in cellular network standards including IS-95, UMTS, and LTE. Since 2013, he has led a group on the Internet of Things, focusing on wireless technologies for object tracking and machine-to-machine communications. Dr. Huang has taught as an adjunct professor at Columbia University and is a Fellow of the IEEE.
