Abstract: Wireless localization and sensing has been a topic of active research for several years. Yet, new architectural and algorithmic advances in this area, have enabled novel applications and expanded the avenues where localization and sensing can be useful. In this talk, I intend to take you on a journey that spans art, sports, entertainment, security, industry, health, and education, and give a glimpse of how a modest distance measurement sensor can morph into a highly versatile tool for advancing the state-of-the-art in a variety of fields. While I will briefly talk about aspects of cellular and wireless communication for improving video-streaming, I will mostly focus on our work with ultra-wideband (UWB) radios--a technology that now features in Apple phones and watches for object finding. In particular, I will talk about two important technical nuggets enabling infinitely scalable indoor localization, and fine-grained object tracking.

Bio: Dr. Ashutosh Dhekne is an assistant professor at the School of Computer Science at Georgia Tech. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and his masters from IIT Bombay. He has received the NSF Career award for advancing UWB research. He is a faculty fellow of the Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems at Georgia Tech.
