June 5, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Category:

A/Professor Alexander Wyglinsk

Worcester Polytechnic Institute – Wireless Innovation Lab – President-Elect, IEEE VTS

Alexander M. Wyglinski (S’99, M’05, SM’11) is currently the Executive Vice-President and an elected Board of Governors member of the Vehicular Technology Society (VTS). He is an internationally recognized as an expert in the field of wireless communications, cognitive radio, connected vehicles, software-defined radio prototyping, dynamic spectrum access, vehicular technology, 5G communications, automotive cybersecurity, autonomous vehicles, and cyber-physical systems. Dr. Wyglinski is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and an Associate Professor of Robotics Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Worcester, MA, USA, as well as the Director of the Wireless Innovation Laboratory (WI Lab). Dr. Wyglinski received his Ph.D and B.Eng. degrees in 2005 and 1999 from McGill University in Electrical Engineering, and his M.Sc.(Eng.) degree in 2000 from Queen’s University in Kingston in Electrical Engineering. Throughout his academic career, Dr. Wyglinski has published approximately 40 journal papers, over 80 conference papers, nine book chapters, and two textbooks.


The latest advances in communications technology have enabled the wireless sector to design and implement systems capable of achieving complex waveforms using sophisticated algorithms at a reasonable cost. For instance, we are beginning to witness the emergence of “true” Cognitive Radio systems that actually learn from their environments and past experiences in real-time. Additionally, technologies such as Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) antenna systems are beginning to be realized using off-the-shelf software-defined radio (SDR) platforms. In this talk, an overview in the current state-of-the-art in Cognitive Radio and advanced waveform design using SDR technology will be presented. Furthermore, case studies involving satellite communications and indoor localization will be described to highlight some of the areas benefiting from these advances in wireless communications.
