IEEE WIE Ottawa volunteering for IEEE Fusion 2019! 

This year, IEEE WIE Ottawa got a chance to volunteer and walk through the international conference on information Fusion which was held in Shaw Center from 2nd July to 5th July. This conference, in a literal sense, creates a Fusion between academia and industry. It brings together people from different domains of technology for these three days to discuss and share knowledge on foundational, technological, and application-focused innovations in the sensor, data, information and knowledge fusion scientific domains. The conference focused on advancing the employment of multidisciplinary and innovative methods for solving the challenges in data and information Fusion.

The IEEE WIE Ottawa team was actively volunteering in the event. The event had some special sessions on interesting topics. Some examples to mention are-assessing the impact of AI and machine learning technologies, information fusion in multi-biometrics and forensics, multisensor data fusion algorithm for industry and the list continues.

More IEEE WIE Ottawa News!

One of the distinguished seminars by IEEE WIE Ottawa chapter has been a talk on GNSS Antennas for autonomous vehicles by Julien Hautcoeur from Tallysman Wireless. The focus of this session was on the importance of GNSS antenna for accurate positioning and the challenges faced for selecting the appropriate antenna for a diverse range of autonomous vehicles. Julien covered optically transparent antenna systems for telecommunications.

This was a basic head-start session for what one needs to know about GNSS antennas and the speaker made full attempts to try to keep it simple and understandable for the audience. Many attendees felt the good visualization, and animation helped to clear a  lot of concepts. Hope we can help more to keep you updated with technology! Keep following up for more such interesting and informative sessions.
