Morning Keynote

Robust and Secure Perception for Automated Vehicles
Todd Humphreys (University of Texas Austin, USA)

Abstract:
The next few decades will see automated vehicles become critical to the world economy. But daunting challenges must be overcome to ensure trustworthy operation: Even under fairly benign conditions it has proven difficult to ensure that automated vehicles can be trusted to locate themselves accurately and to avoid obstacles. In adverse weather, or—worse yet—under a deliberate sensory attack, the difficulty is greatly magnified: How can automated vehicles reliably operate when facing both outliers and outlaws, both faults and fraud?
This talk will focus on reliable automated vehicle localization despite poor weather, dense urban environments, and sensor deception, including GPS/GNSS, radar, and V2V sensing.

Biography:
Todd E. Humphreys is an associate professor in the department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at the University of Texas at Austin, and Director of the UT Radionavigation Laboratory. He received a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Utah State University and a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from Cornell University. He specializes in the application of optimal detection and estimation techniques to problems in satellite navigation, automated systems, and signal processing. His recent focus has been on secure perception for automated systems, including navigation, timing, and collision avoidance, and on centimeter-accurate location for the mass market. Dr. Humphreys received the University of Texas Regeants’ Outstanding Teaching Award in 2012, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2015, and the Institute of Navigation Thurlow Award in 2015.

Afternoon Keynote

Experiences and Insights from the Microsoft Indoor Localization Competition
Dimitrios Lymberopoulos (Microsoft, USA)

Abstract:
Accurate indoor localization has the potential to transform the way people navigate indoors in a similar way that GPS transformed the way people navigate outdoors. Over the last 15 years, several indoor localization technologies have been proposed and experimented by both academia and industry, but the way these systems are evaluated remains highly ad-hoc. In this talk, I will describe the experiences and lessons learned from attempting to simultaneously evaluate tens of indoor location technologies in the same unfamiliar environment. I will present the results of the 2014, 2015, and 2016 Microsoft Indoor Localization Competitions, highlighting the current state-of-the-art in indoor location sensing technologies.

Biography:
Dimitrios Lymberopoulos is a Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research. His work has focused on low power sensing architectures, indoor location technologies and mobile context sensing for mobile web search services. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Electrical Engineering department at Yale University in 2008, where he designed and implemented wireless sensor networks for privacy-preserving, in-home elderly care monitoring.
