报告摘要:

Existing wireless networks cannot cover many hostile and complex environments, including the underground, underwater, oil reservoirs, groundwater aquifers, nuclear plants, pipelines, tunnels, and the concrete buildings. The wireless networking capability in such environments can enable important applications in the environmental, industrial, homeland security, law enforcement, and military fields. However, the harsh wireless channels prevent the direct usage of the electromagnetic (EM) wave-based techniques due to the high material absorption when penetrating the lossy medium. Moreover, since practical environments can be complex combinations of air, water, soil, concrete, and metal, solutions only applicable for one single medium, e.g., acoustic wave based networking for underwater medium, do not work. In this talk, the wireless networks based on new communication mechanisms are introduced to address the above challenges. By taking advantages of multiple cutting-edge technologies, including magnetic induction, metamaterials, and reconfigurable antenna-arrays, reliable wireless connections can be established in the aforementioned hostile and complex environments.
