Course Introduction : A selected set of applications for the IoT world are introduced. In our topic on first responder networks, we attempt to build a system to detect human life under a building debris. The sensors and the algorithms designed will be described. Our topic on automotive sector includes sensors such as LiDARs and cameras used for obstacle detection. Anomaly detection in streaming will be discussed. We also explain some of the current protocols from the Wi-Fi world which have been made suitable for the V2X communication. Several applications require speech to text and we propose to explain the acoustic and language models associated with decoding. We introduce the topic of cargo monitoring in large warehouses by combining vision with learning. Our topic on localization uses the IMU sensors present in a mobile phone and combination of relevant sensors to achieve tracking. Other topics include air quality and we will discuss the issues associated with them.
Prabhakar Venkata works as Principal Research Scientist in the Department of Electronic Systems Engg, IISc, Bangalore. His area of work is in Networked Embedded Systems. His research interest is in Energy Harvesting and Power Management Algorithms for sensor networks. The broad spectrum comprises of Modeling, Virtual Prototyping,System Building and Performance evaluation. He is currently working on energy harvesting technologies in chip design, indoor localization applications, and other batteryless applications. The Zero Energy Networks laboratory (ZENLab) at IISc specializes in building many ultra low power embedded boards and software stacks. Current research focus is on testbed creation for Tactile Internet applications with 5G technologies, real time MAC protocol, RFID, drone fleets, heterogeneous IoT networks. Prabhakar Venkata holds a MSc (Engg) from IISc and a PhD degree from the Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), The Netherlands.
