March 17, 2022, 16:00 – 17:30
Attendance is free to all TECoSA members. To register, please email email@example.com stating which module(s) you wish to take. Alternatively, calendar invitations will be issued to everyone on the tecosa-all mailing list. You can register by accepting the invitations that are of interest to you. (This module runs on more than one date – please be sure to accept all the relevant invitations.)
Format: Two 1.5-hour workshops
Timing: Thurs 17 March kl.16-17.30 CET and Fri 18 March kl.16-17.30 CET
Module led by: KTH: James Gross (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Content: *Underlying principles; *Communication theory background; *Implementation principles; *Examples (iWLAN, IO-Link, 5G, 802.11be). The content is split into two parts: “fundamentals” and “systems”. For the fundamentals, we will cover (a) Application layer requirements (b) latency/reliability challenges in wireless systems (c) theoretical results over the last decade (finite-block length models, medium access schemes, scheduling). For the systems, we will cover (a) Wifi Evolution; (b) Cellular Systems; (c) Other approaches.
Abstract: Wireless systems have been commercialized over the last thirty years mostly as systems to foster communication among humans. Applications like telephony, client-server apps and lately also video services are good examples of this footprint. However, over the last decade, other use cases have become more and more the focus of the research community, addressing essentially requirements that originate from industrial automation scenarios. These scenarios call for much lower latencies while simultaneously emphasizing the reliability of transmissions. In this module, we cover the most important aspects of this development, both from a research perspective (covering fundamentals) as well as from as from a systems perspective, considering the performance of contemporary standards as well as the next wave of systems to come.
