"Network Localization and Navigation: a Comprehensive View"

The availability of positional information is of extreme importance in numerous commercial, health-care, public safety, and military applications. The coming years will see the emergence of location-aware networks with sub-meter localization accuracy, minimal infrastructure, and robustness in harsh (GPS challenged) environments. To reach this goal we advocate network localization and navigation (NLN), a new paradigm that exploits a combination of wideband transmission and spatiotemporal cooperation. In particular, our work has addressed this problem from three perspectives: theoretical framework, cooperative algorithms, and network experimentation. The theoretical framework provides the fundamental performance bounds and insights into NLN. Cooperative algorithms are designed to approach these bounds, resulting in dramatic performance improvements over traditional techniques. Network experimentation enables system designers to determine important attributes of physical environments and to develop realistic models. We will give a brief technical overview of our research results in the field of NLN.

About the Speaker

Moe Win is a Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Prior to joining MIT, he was at AT&T Research Laboratories for five years and at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for seven years. His research encompasses fundamental theories, algorithm design, and experimentation for a broad range of real-world problems. His current research topics include network localization and navigation, network interference exploitation, intrinsic wireless network secrecy, adaptive diversity techniques, and ultra-wide bandwidth systems.

Professor Win is a Fellow of the AAAS, the IEEE, and the IET, and was an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer. He is an elected Member-at-Large on the IEEE Communications Society Board of Governors (2011-2013). He was the Chair (2004-2006) and Secretary (2002-2004) for the Radio Communications Committee of the IEEE Communications Society. He was honored with two IEEE Technical Field Awards: the IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award and the IEEE Eric E. Sumner Award (jointly with Professor R. A. Scholtz). He received the Copernicus Fellowship, the Royal Academy of Engineering Distinguished Visiting Fellowship, the Fulbright Fellowship, the Laurea Honoris Causa from the University of Ferrara, and the U.S. Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.

Industry Keynote:

"Silicon for Precision Indoor Location at Performance, Price and Power Consumption Points That Enable Mass Adoption"

The World is demanding indoor location and all the attendant services it can deliver; services that leverage precision ranging, precision location and precision association. But this requires infrastructure and cheap small tags. The infrastructure (in WLAN APs or proprietary APs) demands a minimum Non line of sight (NLOS) performance. The services envisaged demand superior precision and reliability. Tag manufacturers demand a compelling price and power profile. And so a chip must be brought to market that conforms to an industry standard (thereby allowing proliferation) which enables breakthrough performance in LOS and NLOS range, precision and reliability, whilst operating in the harsh realities of indoors where multipath and narrowband interference are a challenge. Chips compliant to IEEE802.15.4a are such chips. But they must be at price points and power points that enable mass adoption. DecaWave’s DW1000 is such a chip and it goes into mass production in 2013. How does the standard deliver such performance and how does DecaWave realise it so convincingly. And what are the market verticals that are moving first and stimulating the build out.

To describe how the chip and standard work, Mr Laughlin the co Founder and CTO of DecaWave will present. To describe how the part is positioned and being adopted, Mr Connell the co Founder and CEO of DecaWave will present. In short, DecaWave will present the vision and the realisation of the vision for indoor location.
