Talk Title

Underwater Wireless Networks: From the Drawing Board to the Roaring Seas


The Earth is a water planet. For decades, there has been significant interest in monitoring aquatic environments for scientific exploration, commercial exploitation, and coastline protection. The vision of underwater wireless sensor networks (UWSNs) has attracted much attention for the past 1.5 decades. However, the complicated underwater environment poses grand challenges to the design and implementation of practical UWSNs. Addressing these challenges requires new research at every layer of the networking protocol stack (from the physical layer to the application layer) and new networking infrastructure to implement, test, and evaluate the solutions. Despite years of research, there are still clouds overshadowing the research of UWSNs. In this talk, the speaker will identify some of these “little clouds”, and share his experience in the modeling, design, implementation, and experimentally evaluation of UWSN systems for the past 10 years from a personal point of view.

Speaker Bio

Dr. Zheng Peng’s research focuses on the modeling, optimization, implementation and experimental evaluation of wireless ad-hoc sensor networks and networked systems, especially in the unique underwater environment. He has authored/co-authored over 60 referred journal and conference papers on a variety of topics in underwater wireless networks, e.g. media access control, network routing, reliable data transfer, network architecture, localization and synchronization. In addition to theoretical work, he led the efforts in designing and implementing software/hardware for underwater networks, such as Aqua-Lab, Aqua-Net, Aqua-Sim, Aqua-Sim-NG, and Ocean-TUNE. Further, Dr. Peng participated in a number of field experiments in leading roles, obtaining hands-on and real world experience from North America to Asia. Moreover, Zheng provides active services to the research communities. He served multiple international conferences as organizing committee members, technical program committee members, or session chairs. He has also worked with several international journals as an associate editor, guest editor or reviewer.
