Upcoming Events at IIIT-D

Talk by Dr. Ashutosh Gore on "WLAN Physical Layer" for 17th May 2022 at 4 PM.

Date : 17th May 2022 

Time: 4 PM

Online talk

This talk gives an introduction to physical layer of wireless local area networks (WLAN PHY). It first covers OFDM, MIMO, channel models, evolution of 802.11 standards and PHY packet format. The main part of this talk mid-dives into OFDM packet detection, transmit beamforming and automatic gain control. We also briefly mention the applications of these techniques in 802.11be (7th generation WiFi).

Talk by Dr. Sanat K Biswas on "Unsupervised Learning-based Satellite Selection Algorithm for GPS-NavIC multi-constellation receivers".

Date : 6th Apr 2022 

Time: 4 PM

Offline Workshop

The lower bound of the GDOP is an important parameter to benchmark satellite selection algorithms. Existing GDOP lower bound formulations do not consider the satellite azimuth and elevation angle constraints with respect to the user for Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and Inclined Geosynchronous Orbit (IGSO) based regional navigation constellations. A GDOP lower bound formulation considering the azimuth and elevation angle constraints is formulated for GEO and IGSO based navigation constellations.

B. Fatimah, P. Aggarwal, P. Singh, A. Gupta, “A comparative study for predictive monitoring of COVID-19 pandemic” at Applied Soft Computing, 2022.

COVID-19 pandemic caused by novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) crippled the world economy and engendered irreparable damages to the lives and health of millions. To control the spread of the disease, it is important to make appropriate policy decisions at the right time. This can be facilitated by a robust mathematical model that can forecast the prevalence and incidence of COVID-19 with greater accuracy. This study presents an optimized ARIMA model to forecast COVID-19 cases.

A. Goel, A. Majumdar, “K-means Embedded Deep Transform Learning for Hyperspectral Band Selection” at IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters ( Early Access ), 2022.

In clustering based hyperspectral band selection techniques 2D images of each band are usually taken as input samples. Some form of feature extraction on these images is performed before they are input to the clustering algorithm. The clustering algorithm returns the cluster centroids; the bands closest to the centroids are selected as representative bands for each cluster.

A. Verma, A. V. Subramanyam, Z. Wang, S. Satoh,R. R. Shah, "Unsupervised Domain Adaptation for Person Re-identification via Individual-preserving and Environmental-switching Cyclic Generation," in IEEE Transactions on Multimedia, 2022.

Unsupervised domain adaptation for person re-identification (Re-ID suffers severe domain discrepancies between source and target domains. To reduce the domain shift caused by the changes of context, camera style, or viewpoint, existing methods in this field fine-tune and adapt the Re-ID model with augmented samples, either through translating source samples to the target style or by assigning pseudo labels to the target.

A. Gupta, D. Thapar, S. Deb, “Smart Camera for Enforcing Social Distancing” IEEE International Symposium on Smart Electronic Systems (iSES) (Formerly iNiS) , 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic presents an unprecedented challenge to public health, food systems and the demand and supply chains. “Coronavirus” spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks, and droplets from their mouth are launched into the air and inhaled by people in the vicinity. Mid-2021 witnessed the production and supply of effective vaccines against Coronavirus, and around 4.5 billion vaccine doses have been utilised globally, reducing fatalities significantly.

D. N. Anwar, M. Peer, K. Lata, A. Srivastava and V. A. Bohara, ”3-D Deployment of VLC Enabled UAV Networks with Energy and User Mobility Awareness," is accepted for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Green Communications and Networking as a Regular Paper.

The recent proliferation of light-emitting diodes(LEDs) in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for inspection, first response, environmental protection monitoring, surveillance and urban safety especially at night time, have paved the way for visible light communication (VLC) enabled UAVs. Since UAVs are power limited and size constrained devices, the utilization of visible light for communication and illumination in UAVs help in reducing energy and air-frame cost.

Rahul, A. Mitra, V. A. Bohara, A. Srivastava, and D. Solanki, "Experimental Validation of Optical Wireless Receiver using Solar Panel with Bandwidth Enhancement Circuit," has been accepted for publication in 95th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC 2022-Spring), Helsinki, Finland 2022.

This paper presents a bandwidth enhancement circuit that enhances the 3 dB bandwidth of an off-the-shelf solar panel-based receiver system for optical wireless communication. Experiment results show enhancement of the 3 dB bandwidth from 163 kHz to 1.62 MHz. A data rate of 1.5 Mbps is achieved with the OOK modulation scheme over the VLC link of 1 m.
