From Battery to Batteryless: A View of Mobile Communication and Sensing from the Energy Perspective

9:30am - 10:30am
Zoom ID: 968 3623 0897, Password: 123321

Batteries play a crucial role in today’s IT and communication sectors. Yet the current design of computing and communication systems largely treat batteries as a black box, with limited understanding about their working conditions, not to mention optimal integration. In this talk, we will present our recent works on data-driven base station backup battery analysis and optimization in modern cellular communications (CIKM, e-Energy, TMC). We also strongly believe that batteryless will be the future for tiny IoT devices. We accordingly present a series of our recent works on batteryless communication and sensing, including high-throughput and multi-hop backscatter (MobiSys, MobiCom), distribution excitation (MobiSys), multi-track acoustic sensing with ambient energy (MobiCom), etc.

In the past he worked as an Assistant Professor at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and as a research fellow at Microsoft Research Asia. He received the BEng degree (cum laude) from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1999, and the PhD degree from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2003, both in computer science. He is a co-recipient of the inaugural Test of Time Paper Award of IEEE INFOCOM (2015), ACM SIGMM TOMCCAP Nicolas D. Georganas Best Paper Award (2013), and ACM Multimedia Best Paper Award (2012). His research interests include multimedia systems and networks, cloud and edge computing, social networking, online gaming, and Internet of things/RFID/backscatter. He has served on the editorial boards of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Network Sciences and Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Big Data, IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials, and IEEE Internet of Things Journal. He is a Steering Committee member of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and Steering Committee Chair of IEEE/ACM IWQoS (2015-2017). He was TPC Co-Chair of IEEE INFOCOM'2021.
