This April, WNCG Prof. Jeffrey Andrews and other experts met with FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to discuss spectrum innovation. The discussion between Wheeler and Andrews explored how current research can inform FCC and U.S. spectrum policies and research investments for a still-undefined 5G cellular standard.
WNCG Student Abhishek Gupta recently published his second book on MATLAB, entitled “Numerical Methods Using MATLAB.” Published by Springer Apress, the book provides a practical reference to assist anyone working with numerical methods that use MATLAB.
“Numerical methods have wide applicability across many scientific, mathematical and engineering disciplines and are often employed in situations where finding an exact answer through analytical methods is impractical,” Gupta states.
Americans love the romantic vision of a Corvette on the open road and a single-commuter car at the whim of its driver. But with traffic jams and fatal accidents increasing, how will Americans face the reality of transportation’s future and take action to get traffic moving?
Imagine drawing a light painting using a phone’s antenna and GPS system. Imagine a world of virtual reality, where buildings are perfect replicas of their real-world counterparts, down to the exact height of a piece of gum stuck under a desk. Where a person cannot only see their location on the street but also the exact height and orientation of their mobile device in hand.
