Revolutionizing IoT: The Synergy of Wake-Up Radio Technologies and Energy Harvesting in Green Wireless Networks

April 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm PDT

Abstract: In this presentation, we delve into the transformative effects of cutting-edge technologies on the efficiency of wireless networks that underpin the Internet of Things (IoT), with a focus on eco-friendly wireless networks. We will unveil the latest developments in wake-up radio technologies equipped with semantic addressing, showcasing their ability to drastically reduce packet delivery times and achieve significant energy savings—by up to five orders of magnitude. Furthermore, we'll demonstrate how integrating energy harvesting techniques, such as solar and wind, with wake-up radios can lead to sustainable networked systems that rival the performance of traditional battery-powered nodes. Lastly, we'll explore the advantages of employing intelligent forwarding methods based on optimized learning algorithms. While acknowledging the noticeable costs associated with such methods, we'll also make a case for employing more cost-effective heuristic approaches derived from learning-based models.
Bio: Stefano Basagni holds a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas (December 2001) and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Milano, Italy (May 1998). He received his B.Sc. degree in computer science from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 1991. He is currently a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University, in Boston, MA. He is also a core faculty of Northeastern's Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things.
Dr. Basagni's current research interests concern research and implementation aspects of mobile networks and wireless communications systems, wireless sensor networking for IoT (aerial, underwater and terrestrial), definition and performance evaluation of network protocols and theoretical and practical aspects of distributed algorithms.
Dr. Basagni has published over twelve dozens of highly cited, refereed technical papers and book chapters. His h-index is currently 52. He is also co-editor of three books. Dr. Basagni served as a guest editor of multiple international ACM/IEEE, Wiley and Elsevier journals. He has been the TPC co-chair of international conferences such as ACM Dial M for Mobility (2004), Med Hoc Net (2006), IEEE SECON (2010), IEEE Globecom (AHSN Symposium, 2012), IEEE MASS (2012), IEEE WiMob 2013, IEEE ICNC (NAPE Symposium, 2015), IFIP Wireless Days 2016, ACM WUWNet (2017), IEEE ICNC (WAHS Symposium, 2018), Med Hoc Net (2018), IEEE ICNC (NAPE Symposium, 2019), IEEE DCOSS 2021, ACM WUWNet 2022, IFIP WONS 2023, and IEEE PIMRC 2023. He was the general co-chair of IEEE SECON 2019 and of ACM WiNTECH 2020.
Dr. Basagni serves as a member of the editorial board, the organizing committee and of the technical program committee of ACM and IEEE journals and international conferences. He is a distinguished scientist of the ACM, a senior member of the IEEE, a member of ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) and of CUR (Council for Undergraduate Education).
