The LiveLabs Platform & Advances in Real-time Mobile Sensing/Analytics

Friday, May 24, 11:00 AM

Packard Lab Room 466

Abstract: This talk will describe various research initiatives related to the LiveLabs Experimentation Platform, a unique “urban behavioral testbed” project at SMU that combines innovations in wireless networks, mobile sensing and automated experimentation to enable an ecosystem of industry partners to test next-generation context-based applications. The LiveLabs testbed will involve approx. 30,000 real-life users in urban environments, such as the SMU campus, 2 major shopping malls and a resort theme park. After briefly introducing LiveLabs, I’ll describe three key research problems: a) cloud-coordinated query optimization for energy-efficient mobile sensing; b) real-world queue detection, and c) real-time RF analytics and practical indoor localization.

Bio: Archan Misra is an Associate Professor of Information Systems at Singapore Management University (SMU), with broad research interests in the areas of pervasive computing & mobile systems, including energy-efficient mobile analytics & activity recognition. Over the past 12 years (as part of his previous jobs with IBM Research and Telcordia Technologies), he has worked extensively in the areas of wireless networking and pervasive computing, and is a co-author on papers that received the Best Paper awards in EUC 2008, ACM WOWMOM 2002 and IEEE MILCOM 2001. He is presently an Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and the Elsevier Journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing and chaired the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Computer Communications (TCCC) from 2005-2007. Archan received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland at College Park and his B.Tech in Electronics and Communication Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, India.
