Speech Title: 3D Video Analytic for Autonomous Driving
Abstract: In this talk we present our works on 3D video analytic for autonomous vehicles using RGBD data. A visual SLAM system for motion tracking of vehicles will be described to assist autonomous driving in real environments including highways, residential, semi-urban and urban roads. The proposed approach uses motion prior to obtain accurate motion estimation in metric scale. 3D object detection and tracking are developed for obstacles avoidance, including approaches to enhance object detection in different environments. The proposed RGBD image processing techniques for SLAM, object detection and object tracking will be evaluated using publicly available benchmark datasets and experimental datasets we collected for practical driving scenarios.

Speech Title: Underwater Wireless Optical Communications
Abstract:
Foreseeing the proliferation of underwater vehicles and sensors, underwater wireless optical communication (UWOC) is a key enabler for ocean exploration, with strong competitiveness in short-range bandwidth-intensive applications. The talk introduces the basic concepts and essential features of UWOC, as well as an overview of work being conducted in this field. Research challenges, arising from the characteristics of underwater channels, and possible roadmaps are discussed.
