Wireless Multihop Networks: Finding the Best Way Home

​​In contrast to conventional cellular networks, devices in wireless multihop networks have dual roles: while each device is a source of information it also acts as a router for its peers. Passing information from a source to its respective destination (i.e. packet routing) is a collective effort by all means. Identifying the most efficient route is crucial for creating a reliable and fast network. Depending on the underlying application, devices in a multihop network may be interconnected to a backbone communications infrastructure or may be running in autonomous mode.

Future Generation Computing Systems made possible at KAUST

​At the sensors lab, studentsunder the supervision of Prof. K.N. Salama are exploring new computing technologies miming the way our brains process and store data. In particular, the work of PhD student Mohammed Zidan on memristors and Resistive memory arrays (ReRAM) is of great significance. ReRAM potentially address many of the challenges facing such a task. Using memristors to build neural networks reduces the required area significantly compared to classical circuits.

Dr. Al-Naffouri’s work on impulse noise in DSL systems is among IEEE TCOM’s most downloaded papers for 2014

Dr. Tareq Y. Al-Naffouri, published a paper entitled “Impulse Noise Estimation and Removal for OFDM systems” in IEEE Transactions on Communication (IEEE TCOM) in March 2014. In this paper, an efficient method is proposed to estimate and mitigate the effect of impulsive noise, a limiting factor in the performance of digital subscriber line (DSL) and power line communication (PLC) systems.

Dr. Arif, in the Computational Vision Lab, Creates Commercially Applicable Interactive Segmentation Software for Cardiac Analysis

​Omar Arif, a postdoctoral researcher in the Computational Vision Lab, headed by Prof. Ganesh Sundaramoorthi has created, along with collaborators, new interactive segmentation and tracking tools specifically tailored for detecting and tracking structures in medical images (MRI, CT).  Many cardiovascular clinical applications (e.g., detection of arrhythmias - a heart ailment, and surgical planning for inserting pacemakers) require accurate shape estimates of the heart muscle (myocardium) and ventricles as they deform in time.

Eman group's work on hemodynamic characterization of small regions in the brain will be presented in the prestigious European Control Conference ECC

​​​Eman's  group  develops an algorithm for physiological characterization of small regions of the brain, based on functional Magnetic resonance Imaging experiments. A hierarchical approach, combining an adaptive observer and the modulating functions techniques, is proposed to estimate both the physiological variables such as the cerebral blood flow and the deoxyhemoglobin concentration and the hemodynamic parameters intrinsic to the studied area of the brain.
