This year, the ISL team attended the 2020 IEEE/ION Position, Location and Navigation Symposium. A team of Professor Tareq Al-Naffouri, Xing Lui and Tarig Ballal co-authored the Conference Publication titled GNSS Attitude Determination Using a Constrained Wrapped Least Squares Approach. The publication focused on GNSS Attitude Determination.

Since February 2020, ISL student Mohammed Al-Sharif has been participating in an internship at the California Institute of Technology. He was working with renowned Professor Babak Hassibi at Caltech's Electrical Engineering department.

The topic they are working on is indoor localization based on Riemannian optimization.

ISL scientists have developed a hybrid sensor network that overcomes the shortcomings of acoustic and optical waves. Acoustic and optical waves are two of the most commonly used underwater wireless communication systems.

The rapid growth of the world’s population demands more natural resources, food, and space. World renowned physicist Stephan Hawking has argued that soon we will require another world to live on because we are running out of space and natural resources.

In this talk, we represent recent advances of radio frequency (RF) sensing technology for healthcare, specifically in monitoring human activities inside homes, retirement facilities and hospitals. Sensing technologies and data analytics are considered powerful tools in efficient indoor monitoring of human activities.
