About the Event

Multi-hop wireless networks can be found in many application scenarios, including IoT, fog computing, satellite communication, underwater communication, etc. The main challenge in such networks is the accumulation of packet loss in the wireless links. With existing technologies, the throughput decreases exponentially fast with the number of hops. In this talk, we introduce BATched Sparse code (BATS code) as a solution to this challenge. BATS code is a rateless implementation of network coding. The advantages of BATS codes include low encoding/decoding complexities, high throughput, low latency, and low storage requirement. This makes BATS codes ideal for implementation on IoT devices that have limited computing power and storage. At the end of the talk, we will show a video demonstration of BATS code over a Wi-Fi network with 10 IoT devices acting as relay nodes.

Biography

Raymond W. Yeung received his PhD in electrical engineering from Cornell University. He was with AT&T Bell Laboratories from 1988 to 1991. Since 1991, he has been with The Chinese University of Hong Kong, where he is now Choh-Ming Li Professor of Information Engineering and Co-Director of Institute of Network Coding. His research interests include information theory and network coding. He is the author of the textbooks A First Course in Information Theory (Kluwer Academic/Plenum 2002) and its revision Information Theory and Network Coding (Springer 2008).
