The COVID-19 pandemic significantly disrupted the educational sector. Faced with this life-threatening pandemic, educators had to swiftly pivot to an alternate form of course delivery without severely impacting the quality of the educational experience. Following the transition to online learning, educators had to grapple with a host of challenges....

Developing low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) solutions that are efficient to adopt, deploy and maintain are vital for smart cities. The poor quality-of-service of unlicensed LPWAN, and the high service cost of LTE-M/NB-IoT are key disadvantages of these technologies. Concatenating unlicensed with licensed LPWANs can overcome these limitations and...

Safe transportation is a key use-case of the 5G/LTE Rel.15+ communications, where an end-to-end reliability of 0.99999 is expected for a vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) transmission distance of 100-200 m. Since communications reliability is related to road-safety, it is crucial to verify the fulfillment of the performance, especially for accident-prone ar...

As a CDIO collaborating member, the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering of Sheridan maintains a curriculum that is deeply rooted in skills-based learning, experiential learning, and engineering design. To ensure our graduates are agile and ready for the workforce, we are taking proactive measures to further improve their learning experi...

Whether in chemical, civil, mechanical, electrical, or their related engineering subdisciplines, remaining up-to-date in the subject matter is crucial. However, due to the pace of technological evolution, information and communications technology (ICT) fields of study are impacted with much higher consequences. Meanwhile, the curricula of higher ed...

Intersections are critical areas of the transportation infrastructure associated with 47% of all road accidents. Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication has the potential of preventing up to 35% of such serious road collisions. In fact, under the 5G/LTE Rel.15+ standardization, V2V is a critical use-case not only for the purpose of enhancing road sa...
Article
Full-text available
Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication can improve road safety and traffic efficiency, particularly around critical areas such as intersections. We analytically derive V2V success probability near an urban intersection, based on empirically supported line-of-sight (LOS), weak-line-of-sight (WLOS), and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) channel models. The an...

Large-scale fading (LSF) between interacting nodes is a fundamental element in radio communications, responsible for weakening the propagation, and thus worsening the service quality. Given the importance of channel-losses in general, and the inevitability of random spatial geometry in real-life wireless networks, it was then natural to merge these...
Article
Full-text available
Spatial modeling of wireless networks via analytical means has been considered as a widely practiced mechanism for inference. As a result, some geometrical deployment models have been proposed in literature. Although practical in certain simulation instances, these models do not always produce inhomogeneous nodal geometries in an effective and simp...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
It is a fact of our existence, that no matter where we are, we most often find ourselves either hearing, seeing, talking, or even engaged in design related activities. Despite this reality, the notion of “design”, and in particular “engineering design”, is often ambiguous, and at times obscure. Thus, the transfer of knowledge of this crucial topic...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, we will explain a successfully proven lecturing method based entirely on system design. Wireless communications will be used as an example to explain this new teaching philosophy.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The word “researcher” is loaded and often confusing. It takes years to become one and to master all of its aspects. In this paper, we investigate whether or not this process of “becoming” can be catalyzed through education. The focus will be on wireless communications, though the same principle could very well be replicated to other disciplines.

We conceptualized a straightforward and flexible approach for random spatial inhomogeneity by proposing the area-specific deployment (ASD) algorithm, which takes into account the clustering tendency of users. In fact, the ASD method has the advantage of achieving a more realistic heterogeneous deployment based on limited planning inputs, while stil...

With the rapid evolution of wireless networking, it becomes vital to ensure transmission reliability, enhanced connectivity, and efficient resource utilization. One possible pathway for gaining insight into these critical requirements would be to explore the spatial geometry of the network. However, tractably characterizing the actual position of n...

Whether it is crosstalk, harmonics, or in-band operation of wireless technologies, interference between a reference system and a host of offenders is virtually unavoidable. In past contributions, a benchmark has been established and considered for coexistence analysis with a number of technologies including FWA, UMTS, and WiMAX. However, the previo...

The emulation of wireless nodes spatial position is a practice used by deployment engineers and network planners to analyze the characteristics of a network. In particular, nodes geolocation will directly impact factors such as connectivity, signals fidelity, and service quality. In literature, in addition to typical homogenous scattering, normal d...

In literature, a stochastic model for spreading nodes in a cellular cell is available. Despite its existence, the current method does not offer any versatility in dealing with sectored layers. Of course, this needed adaptability could be created synthetically through heuristic means. However, due to selective sampling, such practice dissolves the t...

While analyzing mobile systems we often approximate the actual coverage surface and assume an ideal cell shape. In a multi-cellular network, because of its tessellating nature, a hexagon is more preferred than a circular geometry. Despite this reality, perhaps due to the inherent simplicity, only a model for circular based random spreading is avail...

UWB has a very large bandwidth in a WPAN network, which is best used for HD-video applications. Meanwhile, MBWA is a WMAN option optimized for wireless-IP in a fast moving vehicle. In this paper, we propose a practical engineering scenario that harnesses simultaneously the distinctive feature of both UWB and MBWA. However, this in-proximity operati...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In trying to emulate the spatial position of wireless nodes for purpose of analysis, we rely on stochastic simulation. And, it is customary, for mobile systems, to consider a base-station radiation coverage by an ideal cell shape. For cellular analysis, a hexagon contour is always preferred mainly because of its tessellating nature. Despite this fa...
