Sensor Networks for Internet of Things in Smart Cities


Dr. Waleed Ejaz, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Lakehead University


This seminar will introduce sensor networks for the Internet of Things (IoT) and their application in smart cities. The focus will be on real-world examples, including energy management, intelligent transportation, disaster recovery, smart homes, and smart grid. Several case studies will be presented. Recent research progress will be discussed on communication networking aspects of the IoT, with emphasis on algorithm design, network architecture development, and system-level performance analysis. The focus will be given on the design of novel algorithms and communication protocols for IoT networks that have both (i) enhanced network performance in terms of spectrum efficiency, coverage, and energy efficiency, and (ii) satisfied a wide range of IoT devices’ requirements and constraints. Finally, the talk will present future challenges, focusing on the challenges to support technology and innovation in future smart cities to integrate context information user experience.
