Title: Mobile Sensing Networks: From Robots to Phones (Faculty Candidate TalK)
Dr. Sameera Poduri, University of Southern California, University of Southern California
Date & Time: August 26, 2009 14:30
Venue: SIC 301, 3rd Floor, ā€˜Cā€™ Block, K.R. Building
Mobile networks of robots, vehicles and phones will form the next-generation large-scale, distributed, and reconfigurable sensing infrastructure. Effective coordination to maximize sensing coverage is the common, and key, concern. The differences lie in their capabilities and the degree of control possible. In this talk, I will describe our approaches and tools that harness mobility in a range of sensing networks. (1) For robots that allow direct control, I will show local geometric conditions that guarantee global k-connectivity and optimize sensing coverage. (2) For robots that allow partial control, I will present probabilistic analysis of connectivity and initial results on compressive sensing based sampling strategies. (3) For mobile phones that allow little or no position control, I will describe ongoing work on participatory sensing of air visibility.
Speaker Profile:
Dr. Sameera Poduri is a postdoctoral researcher in the Robotic Embedded Systems Laboratory at the University of Southern California (USC). Her research interests are in developing distributed algorithms for control and coordination of large scale mobile networks. She received a PhD in Computer Science from USC in 2008, M.Tech in Computer Aided Design and Automation and B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay in 2002. http://robotics.usc.edu/~sameera
