Dr. Saad delivers a keynote on Drones and Smart Cities at the IEEE VTC-Fall, 3rd IEEE Workshop on Next Generation Backhaul/Fronthaul Networks


Dr. Saad delivered a keynote entitled " The Internet of Everything: When Drones meet 5G in Context-Aware Smart Cities" at  the IEEE VTC-Fall, 3rd IEEE Workshop on Next Generation Backhaul/Fronthaul Networks.

Abstract:
The coming decade will be marked by a large-scale wireless interconnection of smartphones, sensors, wearables, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and people, into what has come to be collectively known as the Internet of Everything (IoE), which will lie at the heart of tomorrow's smart cities. In this talk, we give an overview on two key ingredients that will help realize this IoE vision. First, we investigate the role of UAVs within the IoE by exposing the various performance tradeoffs associated with their use as flying base stations. Then, we introduce the disruptive paradigm of context-aware networking in which a wireless system can exploit a dimension that has often been overlooked – the user’s context. We discuss the various components of this framework while highlighting its promising outlook for boosting the performance of beyond 5G networks. We conclude this talk by providing our vision on wireless networking in the smart cities era.
