IEEE ComSoc Distinguished Lecturer Talk
February 16 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
UAV-based Wireless Communications, Computing and Charging With the advancement of UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) edge computing and communications from the sky become possible and indeed provide an effective way to complement the current ground-based horizontal edge computing and communications. This talk starts with a brief introduction of UAV and UAV-assisted wireless communications, and then moves on to discuss the necessity of a close collaboration of the two important resources in any ICT system, namely, communication and computation, again in the context of UAVs. Then the talk focuses on wireless energy charging, which is carried out together with communications, i.e., the so-called data and energy integrated networks (DEIN). Key research issues and our solutions are presented, including not only theoretical aspects such as problem formulation and algorithms but also experimental implementations. The talk concludes with discussions on future opportunities in this exciting research area. The talk is easy to follow and is suitable to young researchers who just start their research study and to anybody who is interested in wireless charging and mobile edge computing and communications.
