[Legacy Report] IEEE AP/MTT/EMC/ED TURKEY CHAPTER SEMINAR SERIES -- SEMINAR 13
Speaker: Dr. Alper Sinan Akyürek, ASELSAN
Topic: "Optimal Control in the Smart City"
Location: Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey
Abstract: Once a dream, currently a massive reality; the Internet of Things is here, and it is growing. In such a massive connected environment, developing scalable, dynamic and adaptive engineering solutions is of utmost importance. With recent advancements in communication and computation, the IoT space contains a multitude of heterogeneous connected nodes with various sensing and computational capabilities. The current design paradigm must be adjusted to leverage the current distributed computing capabilities, while adhering to the constraint of scalability. This talk presents an optimal framework for a specific IoT space from the energy perspective: The Smart City. The framework contains four components. At the core lies a novel, scalable and distributed middleware consisting of small computational engines called the “context engines”. The context engines leverage a novel model generation algorithm capable of generating analytic models with adjustable accuracy. A novel communication control algorithm provides an optimal flexible solution for interconnectivity. The whole system is then used by a novel optimal distributed nonlinear energy control algorithm. Although the solutions are designed for the smart city environment, the core concepts are general enough to be applied to the other IoT spaces.
Bio: Alper Sinan Akyurek is currently a Senior Software and Design Engineer at Aselsan Inc. His current work involves the design of custom, robust, wireless solutions for military applications at multiple layers and the implementation of these solutions on embedded platforms.
