讲课题目：Taming Networking Challenges with Feedback Control for Cyber Physical Systems
讲座内容摘要： Cyber physical systems (CPS) is the co-joining of computing and networking with the physical processes. Research advances in CPS enhance systems for medical care, first responder, zero-net energy building, autonomous vehicle, etc. In these CPS applications, wireless networking is a core technology. And it is life-critical for wireless networks to be highly reliable for CPS applications. To address communication realities and achieve high quality end-to-end energy-efficient wireless networking becomes a challenging task.
My feedback control based wireless networking solutions address this research challenge. My hierarchical control framework design has local control and global control. The local control maintains specified link quality with approximate models and low cost, while the global control achieves desired end-to-end performance with distributed coordination of link control. Feedback control based designs can achieve better stability and adaptability under stochastic disturbances than existing heuristic approaches.
讲座人概况：Dr. Shan Lin received his B. E. degree in computer science and engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2004, and his PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Virginia in 2010. He joined Temple University as a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in 2010. He was awarded as the SAIC scholar in 2009. Lin’s primary research interests are in the areas of cyber physical systems, networked information systems, and wireless sensor networks. He has been investigating feedback control based approaches to networked system designs, including wireless networking and system composition. He also builds wireless mobile systems for pervasive medical care, fire fighting, smart building, and plant monitoring. He has received five NSF grants in the past two years since graduation. His major papers have been published in ACM MobiSys, ACM SenSys, IEEE RTSS, IEEE INFOCOM, ACM TECS, and ACM IPSN etc.
