O professor Petros Spachos, da Universidade de Guelph, Ontario (Canadá), profere palestra na Coppe/UFRJ nesta quarta-feira, 30 de novembro, sobre Indoor Localization and Tracking in Smart City Applications. A palestra será realizada às 15h, no auditório do Programa de Engenharia Elétrica (PEE), na sala H-322, no bloco H do Centro de Tecnologia da UFRJ.
Abstract: Every day more computer-based devices are connected to the internet. This is the idea behind the Internet of Things (IoT), a development of the Internet in which everyday objects have network connectivity, allowing them to send and receive data and provide services to the users. Among these services Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS), Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS), and Proximity Based Services (PBS) are a set of technologies that will play a key role in the transformation of smart infrastructure. Localization is the process of locating any entity with very high accuracy (possibly in centimeters), while PBS is a suite of techniques that can be used to personalize the experience a tenant receives from the surrounding objects. Such technologies require high detection accuracy, energy efficiency, wide reception range, low cost, and availability. In this talk, we will provide insights into various indoor localization-enabling technologies, techniques, and services, an!
d discuss how they can accelerate the incorporation of IoT devices in smart city applications. We will cover the challenges and propose some potential solutions such that indoor localization-enabling technologies and services can be thoroughly integrated with IoT-equipped smart city applications.
