The GSU chapter of the ACM presents

Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Robotics Research @ Mobile CPS Lab in the Department of Computer Science

Dr. Ashwin Ashok
Assistant Professor
Department of Computer Science

In this talk, I will discuss some of the emerging topics in Internet of Things (IoT) research with reference to designing Smart Systems and Robotics. I will focus my talk on providing a holistic overview of research fronts that the Mobile CPS lab focusses on, as well as research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students in the Department of CS at GSU.

About the Speaker: Dr. Ashwin Ashok is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State University, where he directs the Mobile Cyber Physical Systems Lab. His research focusses on mobile and vehicular networking, visible light communication, computer vision, and mobile health. Prior to this he was a postdoctoral research associate in ECE at Carnegie Mellon University under the mentorship of Prof. Peter Steenkiste and in collaboration with Dr. Fan Bai (GM Labs) where he conducted research on building cloud computing systems for vehicles. His research work spans areas in visible light and camera communications, mobile systems and computing, vehicular networking, computer vision, augmented reality, wearable systems, and localization. He completed his Ph.D. in October 2014 from the Wireless Information Network Lab at Rutgers University under the supervision of Profs. Marco Gruteser, Narayan Mandayam, and Kristin Dana. His thesis pioneered camera-based communication in mobile computing and visible light communication through a novel concept called visual MIMO that explores the use of cameras and other optical arrays as receivers in a communication system. He has also interned at Qualcomm (NJ) for a summer working on a visible light communication based application. He has won the best teaching assistant award and also a research excellence award at Rutgers. He served as the workshop co-chair for MobiCom 2016 and is the publicity chair for Vehicular Networking Conference 2017. He has served as the founding co-chair for the annual WearSys workshop since 2015. He serves on TPCs for several ACM and IEEE conferences and journals. He is a member of ACM and IEEE.
