Title: “An Overview of Wireless Communication, Sensing and IoT Research Projects at Texas Wireless Lab (TWL)”
- mmWave/Terahertz wireless communication systems for 5G, 6G and Beyond technologies
- Hybrid RF/Optical communication system design
- UAV-assisted wireless communications
- Satellite and space communications
Wireless communication and sensing constitute two of the most critical technological advances that broadly impact myriad aspects of the evolving digital society and support the burgeoning era of smart & connected communities and the Internet of Things (IoT). In this talk, I will provide an overview of our state-of-the-art research projects that tackles new fundamental scientific questions and addresses the challenges in three main synergistic research thrusts: (i) Wireless Communication, (ii) Wireless Sensing, and (iii) Wireless IoT. Example wireless communication technologies and applications include mmWave/Terahertz wireless communication systems for 5G, 6G and Beyond technologies to support the ever-increasing demand for higher data rates, UAV-assisted wireless communications, satellite and space communications. Wireless sensing projects include gesture recognition for human-computer interaction (HCI) applications and vital signs monitoring such as respiration, heart rate, and glucose level for healthcare applications. Finally, the projects on wireless IoT applications include remote control and monitoring applications such as livestock monitoring, soil monitoring, and localization.
Dr. Sabit Ekin is a wireless system design researcher and engineer. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Texas A&M University (TAMU) in 2012. In January 2023, he joined TAMU as an Associate Professor of Engineering Technology & Industrial Distribution, and Electrical & Computer Engineering (affiliated faculty). He has 11+ years (post Ph.D.) of successful track records, including 4 years of industry experience as a Wireless System Engineer at Qualcomm Inc—a world leader in wireless technologies—where he has received numerous awards for his achievements on cellular modem designs for Apple, Samsung, Google, Nokia, etc. Prior to joining TAMU, he was an Assosciate Professor of ECE at Oklahoma State University, where he worked for 6 years. He was the Director/Co-founder of Oklahoma CubeSat Initiative (OKSat)—the first CubeSat program in the state of Oklahoma. He received the Department of Energy (DOE) 2022 Early Career Award—one of the 83 scientists selected from across the nation. He is awarded with OSU PSO/Albrecht Naeter Endowed Professor of ECE (2022), and Jack H. Graham Endowed Fellow of Engineering (2021). His research focuses on design and analysis of mmWave/Terahertz wireless communication systems for 5G-6G and Beyond technologies and wireless sensing systems. His research is sponsored by major agencies, including NSF(5), NASA(2), DOE-CAREER(1), DOD(4), DOT(2), Qatar Foundation(1), and U.S. corporations(2).
