ICC 2015 - 2015 IEEE International Conference on Communications

IEEE ICC is one of the two flagship IEEE conferences in the field of communications; London is to host this conference in 2015. Each annual IEEE ICC conference typically attracts approximately 1,500-2,000 attendees, and will present over 1,000 research works over its duration. As well as being an opportunity to share pioneering research ideas and developments, the conference is also an excellent networking and publicity event, giving the opportunity for businesses and clients to link together, and presenting the scope for companies to publicise themselves and their products among the leaders of communications industries from all over the world.

  • ICC 2014 - 2014 IEEE International Conference on Communications

    The International Conference on Communications (ICC) is one of the two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, together with IEEE Globecom. Each year the ICC conference attracts about 2-3.000 submitted scientific papers, a technical program committee involving about 1.500 experts provides more than 10.000 reviews, the conference being finally attended by 1.500 - 2.000 professionals from all around the world. IEEE ICC is therefore one of the most significant scientific events of the networking and communications community, a must-attend forum for both industrials and academics working in this area.

Using Portable Radios to Operate Mobile Data Terminals

Warren Harrison; Bart Massey; Julian Kongslie 2006 International Forum on Strategic Technology, 2006

Recently, voice controlled software has begun to be used in public safety applications. The motivation for these efforts is to improve officer safety by allowing the officer to operate the police cruiser's electronics and mobile data terminal (MDT) using voice commands so he can continue to focus on the road when driving. Project 54, which is representative of the work ...


Near field in the vicinity of wireless base-station antennas: an exposure compliance approach

S. Blanch; J. Romeu; A. Cardama IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, 2002

Great social concern has risen about the potential health hazard of living near a cellular telephony base-station antenna, and certain technical questions have been posed on the appropriate way to measure exposure in its vicinity. In this paper, a standard spherical near-near field transformation is proposed to obtain the electromagnetic field close to the antenna in free space conditions. The ...

  • Automated License Plate Recognition

    The ability to recognize and extract license plate information from still images or videos is an essential component of many modern transportation and public safety solutions. Although human review of some imagery is still employed for this purpose, much of this has given way to automated license plate recognition (ALPR). In fact, ALPR has in many ways transformed the public safety and transportation industries¿¿¿helping enable modern tolled roadway solutions, providing tremendous operational cost savings via automation, and even enabling completely new capabilities in the marketplace (e.g., police cruiser¿¿¿mounted license plate reading units). This chapter provides an overview of the technology behind ALPR solutions. The key modules typically found within an ALPR system are outlined, along with highlights of some of the most common methods employed to achieve state¿¿¿of¿¿¿the¿¿¿art performance.

    Robots are entering the mainstream. Technologies have advanced to the point of mass commercialization -- Roomba, for example -- and adoption by governments -- most notably, their use of drones. Meanwhile, these devices are being received by a public whose main sources of information about robots are the fantasies of popular culture. We know a lot about C-3PO and Robocop but not much about Atlas, Motoman, Kiva, or Beam -- real-life robots that are reinventing warfare, the industrial workplace, and collaboration. In this book, technology analyst John Jordan offers an accessible and engaging introduction to robots and robotics, covering state-of-the-art applications, economic implications, and cultural context. Jordan chronicles the prehistory of robots and the treatment of robots in science fiction, movies, and television -- from the outsized influence of Mary Shelley's _Frankenstein_ to Isaac Asimov's _I, Robot_ (in which Asimov coined the term "robotics"). He offe s a guided tour of robotics today, describing the components of robots, the complicating factors that make robotics so challenging, and such applications as driverless cars, unmanned warfare, and robots on the assembly line. Roboticists draw on such technical fields as power management, materials science, and artificial intelligence. Jordan points out, however, that robotics design decisions also embody such nontechnical elements as value judgments, professional aspirations, and ethical assumptions, and raise questions that involve law, belief, economics, education, public safety, and human identity. Robots will be neither our slaves nor our overlords; instead, they are rapidly becoming our close companions, working in partnership with us -- whether in a factory, on a highway, or as a prosthetic device. Given these profound changes to human work and life, Jordan argues that robotics is too important to be left solely to roboticists.

  • Glossary of Abbreviations and Terms

    Internet use has become ubiquitous in the past two decades, but governments, legislators, and their regulatory agencies have struggled to keep up with the rapidly changing Internet technologies and uses. In this groundbreaking collaboration, regulatory lawyer Christopher Marsden and computer scientist Ian Brown analyze the regulatory shaping of "code" -- the technological environment of the Internet -- to achieve more economically efficient and socially just regulation. They examine five "hard cases" that illustrate the regulatory crisis: privacy and data protection; copyright and creativity incentives; censorship; social networks and user-generated content; and net neutrality. The authors describe the increasing "multistakeholderization" of Internet governance, in which user groups argue for representation in the closed business-government dialogue, seeking to bring in both rights-based and technologically expert perspectives. Brown and Marsden draw out lessons for better future regulation from the regulatory and interoperability failures illustrated by the five cases. They conclude that governments, users, and better functioning markets need a smarter "prosumer law" approach. Prosumer law would be designed to enhance the competitive production of public goods, including innovation, public safety, and fundamental democratic rights.
