Dr. Chi Receives Grant from the National Science Foundation

Dr. Zicheng Chi, Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has received $349,999 from the National Science Foundation for the three-year project “Effective Spectrum Utilization for Coexisting Active, Semi-passive, and Passive IoT Systems”. The project is to design a frequency agnostic backscatter system (an ultra-low power and low-cost passive communication system) to coexist with common IoTs (such as LTE, WiFi, ZigBee) for better spectrum utilization.
