ITCOM5 Student Conference Papers

Last modified: 07.12.2020

Some of our ITCOM5 students have successfully published and presented two papers in the Student Workshop of the CoNEXT 2020 conference, held (virtually) in Barcelona, Spain, December 1-4, 2020.

CoNEXT 2020 is a major forum for presentations and discussions of novel networking technologies that will shape the future of Internetworking. The Student Workshop aims at providing a platform for graduate students in the area of computer networks and communications to learn from senior researchers in the field and present their ongoing research efforts.

The first paper, titled “Future Factories: Safe Human-Robot Collaboration” is part of the semester project being developed by the students Patrick Vibild, Demira Dimitrova, Alicja Haraszczuk, and Szymon Gabryel under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Sokol Kosta and Prof. Cedomir Stefanovic.

This project aims to develop a safe human-robot collaboration (HRC) system. The system will feature a robotic arm and advanced sensors, inter-networked in an edge computing framework. It will also make use of computer vision techniques, enabling a seamless and safe operation. Finally, the system operation will be verified on a set of prespecified manufacturing tasks, demonstrating adequate safety measures for effective collaboration.

The project is partly sponsored by the IoT superproject, a strategic initiative of the Department of Electronic Systems, Aalborg University, towards UN SDGs.

The video presentation of the paper can be accessed from the student workshop website or directly here.

The second paper, titled “Mobile and Delay Tolerant Network for LoRa at Sea” is prepared by the student Mohamed Msaad as part of the project CoMonSENSE, funded by Innovationsnetværk for Miljøteknologi (Inno-MT). The paper and the project is prepared under the supervision of Patrizio Mariani (DTU), Adam Hambly (DTU), and Sokol Kosta (AAU).

This project proposes a LoRa-based system for sensor data collection at sea through mobile LoRa gateways mounted in ships. The sensor nodes will keep looking for mobile gateways, while trying to conserve energy, and will transmit their data as soon as a gateway ship approaches. The system aims at extending the LoRa network from the cities to the shore and finally to the open ocean.
