SMART LIGHTING ENGINEERING RESEARCH CENTER Professor and Associate Director Thomas D.C. Little to deliver invited talk at the founding conference for Visible Light Communication in China August 19, 2014 Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY – Thomas D.C. Little, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University and Associate Director of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center is invited to speak at the inaugural China Visible Light Communication (VLC) Industry Technology Innovation and Application Alliance Conference. Sponsored by the People's Republic of China's Ministry of Science and Technology and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the conference will be held August 27-28, 2014 at Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. Visible Light Communications (VLC) is a hot topic with growing interest worldwide. Based on the current state of technology, VLC is poised for adoption and commercial growth. Dr. Little’s talk will explore some of the dominant use cases and applications of VLC anticipated to appear in the marketplace in the next few years. Dr. Little will discuss current research efforts in VLC at the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center. Professor Little is the Associate Dean for Educational Initiatives in the College of Engineering at BU, and is the Associate Director of the Smart Lighting Engineering Research Center (ERC), headquartered at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. The ERC is funded by the National Science Foundation and is a collaboration of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the University of New Mexico, and Boston University. Prof. Little’s efforts include research in video sensor networks and streaming in wireless settings, ubiquitous optical networking with visible light, vehicle-to-vehicle communications, and the application of wireless sensors in health monitoring. Dr. Little received his BS degree in biomedical engineering from RPI in 1983, his MS degree in electrical engineering and PhD degree in computer engineering from Syracuse University in 1989 and 1991. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of the IEEE Computer and Communications Societies and a member of the Association for Computing Machinery.
