IoT Initiative: From Industrial IoT to Smart Cities

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

The vision of the CWC at UC San Diego is to start a mutually beneficial collaboration with KETI (Korea Electronics Technology Institute) that will employ smart techniques in what is called “factory-things.” “The transformation of manufacturing with IoTs will help the U.S. maintain its competitive edge in the manufacturing industries,” says CWC Director Sujit Dey,  “with increased efficiencies in cost, processes, manufacturing and performance.”

A Cloud-based Mobile Health Monitoring and Real-time Guidance System

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

Currently, most physical therapy patients receive only verbal and written instructions for their  at-home care -- a strategy that lacks the benefit of the direct feedback a physical therapist could provide. Not surprisingly, this strategy yields very low rates of compliance and accuracy. The Center for Wireless Communications’ mHealth Initiative aims to provide detailed guidance to physical therapy patients so that the exercise regimen they do at home can be as effective as what they do in the clinic.

This winter, San Diego adopted one of the nation’s most ambitious plans to cut carbon emissions in coming decades.

Now the city is teaming up with businesses and universities in hopes that coders can build an app for that.

More than 200 software developers and technology designers have signed up for the three-day San Diego SmartCity Hackathon and Innovation Program, which kicks off Friday at Weaver Conference Center in UC San Diego’s Institute of the Americas.

An unusual coalition is coming together in San Diego to create innovative ways to support a climate action plan the city adopted to satisfy state mandates for reducing greenhouse gases.

The San Diego City Council voted unanimously to approve the plan in December. To meet California’s tough requirements, the plan sets five broad goals that are intended to cut carbon gas emissions in San Diego by 50 percent (from 1990 levels) over the next 20 years and beyond.

Research will help to realize more reliable airplane internet, faster smartphone connections and more

In order to get internet service to airline passengers five or six miles up in the air, airlines mount antenna systems to the tops of their planes. The systems are bulky and generate drag which reduces fuel efficiency. In the next five years or so, electronically steered antennas that are lighter, generate less drag and are more reliable will replace today’s mechanically driven airplane internet systems.

Keysight Technologies, UC San Diego, Demonstrate World's First 5G, 100 to 200 Meter Communication Link up to 2 Gbps

Monday, November 30, 2015

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:KEYS), in collaboration with electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego, has demonstrated the world’s first 64 (8 x 8) and 256-element (16 x 16), 60-GHz silicon wafer-scale phased-array transmitter with integrated high-efficiency antennas for Gbps communications at 100 to 200 meters. With this demonstration, Keysight and UC San Diego have proven that a 5G communication link is not only possible, but can deliver record performance.
