Keynote: “Foundation for Localization-of-Things in 5G Ecosystem and Beyond”
Abstract: The availability of real-time, high-accuracy location awareness is essential for numerous wireless applications, particularly those involving Internet-of-Things and the 5G ecosystem. The coming years will see the emergence of network localization and navigation in challenging environments with sub-meter accuracy and minimal infrastructure requirements. This will call for the Localization-of-Things (LoT), a new paradigm referring to locating, tracking, and navigating collaborative and non-collaborative nodes (e.g., sensors, vehicles, and objects). Our work -relying on statistical inference, network optimization, and communication theory- approaches LoT from different perspectives. This talk will give an overview of LoT, examining our recent research results in this exciting new field, from the perspectives of theoretical framework, cooperative algorithms, network operations, and network experimentation.
