Xi Chen is currently a Ph.D. candidate and a research assistant at Prof. Xue Liu's Cyber-Physical Systems Laboratory (CPS Lab), School of Computer Science, McGill University. He received both of his M.Eng. and B.S. degrees from Department of Electronic Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
His research interests include Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communications and vehicular networks, human activity recognition via wireless signals, optimization of electric vehicles, energy and cost management of cloud computing, green and energy-aware computing.
Testbeds and demos
- VSmart is a DSRC-enabled smart vehicle testbed established at CPS Lab, McGill University, and is partially supported by General Motors Company. (Testbed website and YouTube videos)
- Aerial can tell who you are, where you are and what you are doing, even if you don't carry any wearable devices, smartphones, nor cameras. As long as there are standard Wi-Fi signals in the air, aerial is good to go. (Check our Project website and YouTube video to see the magic!)
