Keynote Speaker :
Dr. Khairol Amali bin Ahmad
obtained a BSc in Electrical Engineering in 1992 from the United States Military Academy, West Point and an MSc in Military Electronic Systems Engineering in 1999 from Cranfield University. While serving in the Malaysian Army, he was positioned in various posts and units including those dealing with engineering maintenance and procurement consultation of equipment. He then joined the National Defence University of Malaysia (NDUM) and completed his PhD from ISAE-SUPAERO, France in 2015. Currently, he is the Dean of the Engineering Faculty and an associate to Centre for Tropicalization (CENTROP) and Centre of Defence Research and Technology (CODRAT) in NDUM. He serves as a Chairman of Malaysia Radar and Navigation Interest Group (MyRANig) of MySET. He is also a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Board of Engineer Malaysia (BEM) and Malaysia Board of Technologists (MBOT). He has served as Organizing Chair of several international conferences such as the DSTC and IntCET series. He co-edited a book entitled “Machine Learning and Big Data: Concepts, Algorithms, Tools and Applications”.  He has also delivered an expert talk, guest lecturers in the conference and serving as a reviewer for several conferences and journals. Among his current research interests include signal processing related to signal propagation in Tropical area, mesh networks for IoT applications and Delay\Disruption Tolerant Network (DTN).

Abstract:

LoRa is one of the technologies that is being tested and evaluated for the wireless Low-Power-Wide-Area-Network (LPWAN) implementations to support the Internet of Things (IoT) communication networks. For propagation, LoRa signals are modulated using the unlicensed industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) radio bands. At the physical layer, LoRa uses Chirp Spread Spectrum (CSS) technique where each symbol is sent using a wide frequency band. In this technique, the signal is modulated by chirp pulses, i.e., frequency varying sinusoidal pulses. While this CSS modulation improves LoRa’s resilience and robustness against interference, Doppler effects and multipath, there are still environmental impacts on LoRa signal propagations. Its signals can still be attenuated over distances and by obstacles such as buildings and trees, and other radio signal sources may still cause some interference. As a way forward in the quest for effective IoT network applications in heavy foliaged tropical environment, wireless mesh networking is being studied as a potential solution for increasing communication range and packet delivery ratio without the need to install additional LoRa gateways. Hence, this talk shall highlight some of the state of the arts works and findings in relation to the mesh network implementation using LoRa.
