Emerging Electromagnetic Medical Devices: From Concept to Implementation

May 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Room: 603, Bldg: McConnell Engineering

This talk will give an overview of the development of several emerging technologies that capitalize on advances in wireless technologies to address clinically informed needs. From the high-frequency microwave range to the low-frequency kilohertz range, a contrast in the electrical properties exists between different biological tissues. These differences can be exploited in the development and application of minimally invasive electromagnetic-based medical technologies. Specifically, the design, fabrication, and the clinical testing pathway of prototypes addressing specific clinical needs, including breast cancer screening, brain bleed detection, bladder monitoring, and neutrophil monitoring during…

Autonomous Mobility on Demand

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
City: Montreal

In this talk, Dr. Mauro Salazar, postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University, will show the research he is carrying out on intermodal Autonomous Mobility-on-Demand (AMoD), wherein a fleet of self-driving vehicles provides on-demand mobility jointly with public transit. Specifically, he will first present a network flow model for intermodal AMoD, capturing the coupling between AMoD and public transit and where the goal is to maximize social welfare. By leveraging such a model, he will devise a pricing and tolling scheme that…

Real-time optimal control of endo-atmospheric launch vehicles

May 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
City: Montreal

Recently, there has been a surge of interest in achievingonboard real-time computation of optimal trajectories forendo-atmospheric launch vehicles. Despite their robustness, theefficiency of widespread techniques such as direct collocationmethods strongly depends on computational capabilities, which oftenobliges to use them offline uniquely. Key candidates for achievingreal-time operation with low computational load are shootingmethods. Nevertheless, with the aim of ensuring a detailed andrefined representation of the physics of the problem to preventmissions from failing, various state constraints and delays have tobe considered,…

Fundamentals and Recent Advances in Power Integrity

May 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Room: 267, Bldg: MacDonald Engineering Building

Co-sponsored by: STARaCom Research Network Although signal and power integrity practices are as old as the digital design itself, unlike SI, PI still remains as an elusive concept in the eyes of industrial circles. One reason is the cause-and-effect relation in PI analysis hasn’t been firmly established in practical applications. For example, with SI analysis, a logic failure can be traced to a noise threshold violation. PI analysis, on the other hand, hardly points out to a smoking gun with…

Millimeter-Wave Ultra-Low-Power Wireless Sensing

May 29 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Room: B-638, Bldg: Main Building

Co-sponsored by: Polygrames, STARaCom, IEEE section Montréal Millimeter-Wave (mm-wave) wireless communication provides several GHz ISM bandwidth using high data rate communication in short bursts with high duty-cycle for lowest power systems. Combined with an on-chip wireless power receiving technique, an on-chip antenna, a fully integrated monolithic passive mm-wave sensor node for internet of things (IoT) can be realized. Such a sensor node is autonomous from an external power-supply, as well it can sense the environment, receive commands and transfer the…

Monitoring Industrial Emissions with mmWave Radar

June 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Room: MC603, Bldg: McConnell Engineering

Atmospheric pollution is one of serious risk factors for human health. Especially the emission of solid aerosols, such as asbestos, carbon dust, heavy metals, etc., remains a huge problem for society. The size of particles can directly be linked to their potential for causing health problems. Particulate matter (PM10), which are particles smaller than 10 micrometers in diameter, pose the greatest problems, because they can get deep into the human body and deposit in the lungs or even infiltrate the…
