TWS 2016: Communication, Sensing, and Data Analytics for Automated Vehicles
This year’s Texas Wireless Summit, to be held October 18 at the Blanton Musuem of Art Edgar Smith Building, will focus on on how automated vehicles will re-shape wireless over the next 10 years with their demands for coordinated sensing and decision making. We’ll examine three key aspects of automation: communication, sensing, and data analytics/machine intelligence. We’ll look at the benefits and requirements of connectivity, the key challenges of sensing at the vehicle, and at the promise of shared sensing and data analytics.
Now in its 14th year, TWS provides a forum on emerging technology and business models for industry leaders and academics. Hosted by The University of Texas at Austin’s Wireless Networking and Communications Group (WNCG), the Summit offers direct access to cutting-edge research and innovations from industry leaders, investors, academics, and startups.

A World Debut: First Demonstration of AT&T and Ericsson’s 5G Millimeter-Wave Technology
We are thrilled this year to feature the first-ever public demonstration of AT&T and Ericsson’s 5G millimeter-wave (mmWave) technology. mmWave is an essential and fundamental component of AT&T’s plans and for 5G mobile networks. The 5G demo will showcase the possibility and feasibility of mmWave radio access technology for the cellular networks of the future. Developed by Ericsson, the system incorporates key 5G technologies: large system bandwidth, phased arrays with ultra-fast beam steering, feedback-based hybrid precoding, multi-user MIMO, dynamic beam tracking and beam acquisition. Over the past several months, AT&T and Ericsson have done extensive lab and field testing to optimize the performance of their system. Some specific tests/features that will be demonstrated at the Texas Wireless Summit: (a) multi-Gbps of bandwidth, (b) multiple 4K HD video streams, (c) multi-user MIMO, (d) dynamic beam tracking and acquisition.
