ViaSat and UC San Diego's Center for Wireless Communications have teamed up to offer participants a day of collaborative research, discussion, and networking.  

2016 National Academy of Engineering member

Thursday, October 20, 2016

In 2016 ECE Prof. Gabriel Rebeiz was elected to the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional honors for engineers. He was recognized for his “contributions to radio-frequency micro-electronmechanical systems (RF MEMS) and phased-array technologies.”

Rebeiz is a pioneer in the development of the arrays of electronically-steered antennas that will soon be much lighter, generate less draft and prove more reliable than today’s mechanically-driven antenna systems which airlines install on top of their planes to allow passengers to use the Internet five or six miles in the air.

KETI joins CWC

Industrial IoT Initiative: Welcoming KETI

The vision of the CWC is to start a mutually beneficial collaboration with KETI (Korea Electronics Technology Institute) that will employ smart techniques in what is called “factory-things.” With increased efficiencies in cost, processes, manufacturing and performance, the US smart factory will once again dominate the competition.

“Transformation of manufacturing with IoT’s will help the US maintain its competitive edge in the manufacturing industries,” says Sujit Dey, Director, Center for Wireless Communications at UC San Diego.

What exactly is Industrial IoT?

As we know, IoT can bridge between many interfaces (or be employed across multiple interfaces). Human to Machine, Machine to Human, and Machine to Machine or “M2M”. M2M will be key in enabling better processes by providing insightful information back to the factory. The large amount of data collected will require machine learning techniques to parse out the components with the most utility. With the collaboration with KETI, UC San Diego’s Center for Wireless Communications will do just that.  

“Starting this initiative with KETI, that has a dedicated advanced Industrial IoT group in the Smart Factory ICT Research Center, along with the manufacturing powerhouse that is Korea, is going to be very productive. We are excited about this collaboration with KETI and are hopeful to expand it with new factory partners” says Dey.

The KETI collaboration will focus on deriving two specialized types of data-mining models. One will be “Predictive Analytics” which is adaptive and captures the performance of the process, the other is “Prescriptive Analytics” which will use the predictive model to assess the reason behind performance failures. Further design challenges include determining how these devices will be able to share information and what the overall network topology will look like. These obstacles will play a large factor in how the group determines and prioritizes its goals.

“Through the KETI-CWC smart manufacturing research project, both countries can develop an advanced smart manufacturing platform and have a mutual utilization of test-beds built in each country ” says Soojin Ji, Associate Researcher, Convergence Emerging Industries R&D Division, Smart Factory ICT Research Center, “by doing this project, we expect that smart factory related corporations in both countries are more likely to acquire global competitiveness in various ways.”
