Event description

The Laboratory of Electronics of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Laboratory of Electronics of the Department of Physics in association with IEEE CASS-SSCS Greece Chapter present Dr. Yen-Kuang Chen, Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation. Dr. Chen is going to give a lecture titled “Challenges and Opportunities of Circuits and Systems on Internet of Things” on Monday 31 October, 2016 at 11:00 am. The lecture will be hosted in the Aristotle University Research Dissemination Center (KEDEA), Hall II, in Thessaloniki, Greece. The abstact of the lecture and the speaker’s biography are stated below.

Abstract: This seminar aims to discuss the technical trends and challenges of circuits Internet of Things. The rapid advancement of networking technologies together with extreme miniaturize­tion of computing and communication devices enable a host of new and exciting applications and services that connect the physical and the computational worlds. In the future, digital sensing, communication, and processing capabilities will be ubiquitously embedded into everyday objects, turning them into the Internet of Things (IoT). In this new paradigm, smart devices will collect data, relay the information or context to each another, and process the information collaboratively using cloud computing and similar technologies. This paradigm shift creates numerous challenges and opportunities for engineering. For example, in the future, enormous numbers of sensors will be deployed. The costs of servicing such sensors will be a major concern. It is often almost impossible to replace sensor batteries once they are in the field. Therefore, one major challenge is low power sensor designs which do not require a battery change over the lifetime of the sensor. For example, if a sensor is deployed on an animal for tracking purposes, the battery of the sensor should outlive the animal. This creates a demand for energy-efficient designs. This seminar will discuss the challenges and opportunities of circuits and systems on Internet of Things.
