Keynote Talk 1: Understanding and Pushing the Sensing Limits of WiFi/4G/5G Signals
WiFi/4G/5G based wireless sensing has attracted a lot of attention from both academia and industry in the last decade. However, fundamental questions such as the sensing limit, sensing boundary and sensing quality of WiFi/4G/5G signals have not been answered, making the wireless sensing system design and deployment in a trial-and-error manner. In this talk, I will first introduce the Fresnel zone model as a generic theoretic basis for device-free and contactless human sensing with WiFi/4G/5G signals. Then we propose to define and deploy the Sensing Signal to Noise Ratio (SSNR) as a new metric to reveal the sensing limit, sensing boundary and sensing signal quality of WiFi/4G/5G-based human sensing systems. We further apply the SSNR metric to show how we can push the sensing range of a commodity WiFi-based human respiration monitoring system to more than 30 meters by exploiting the time, space and frequency diversity of WiFi signals.

Keynote Talk 2: Toward Virtualized Edge Computing
We will discuss the challenges and opportunities of the connected cars vision in relation to the need for distributed data management solutions ranging from the vehicle to the mobile edge and to the data centers. Vehicular networking solutions have been investigated for more than a decade but recent standardization efforts just enable a broad use of this technology to build large scale Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Modern 5G networks promise to provide all means for communication in this domain, particularly when integrating Mobile Edge Computing (MEC). However, it turns out that despite the many advantages, it is unlikely that such services will be provided with sufficient coverage. As a novel concept, vehicle micro clouds have been proposed that bridge the gap between fully distributed vehicular networks based on short range device to device communication and 5G-based infrastructure. Using selected application examples, we assess the advantages of such systems. We conclude the talk by shedding light on future virtual edge computing concepts that will enable edge computing even considering minimal deployment and coverage of 5G MEC.
