In recent years, there has been great advancement in wireless communication technologies. Multi-hop communication arises in many application scenarios where information needs to be transmitted to the receiver through a number of intermediate nodes. For existing technologies, however, the transmission cannot sustain more than a few hops due to channel noise and interference. BATS is a proven and patented network coding technology that solves this longstanding problem. BATS provides an efficient and ready solution for communication in Internet of Things (IoT), Vehicular-to-Everything (V2X), wireless mesh networks, etc. It paves the way for massive deployment of various smart cities devices and applications.

Uniqueness and Competitive Advantages:

  • BATS offers high-speed and stable data transmission
  • The bandwidth provided by BATS is guaranteed (100 times higher than LoRa; 20 times higher than NB-IoT) which can enable services like real-time video transmission
  • BATS provides a city-friendly and efficient solution for building a smart city

Handheld High-Resolution Short-Wave Infrared Spectrometer

Spectrometers are widely used in many different aspects, such as food and environmental inspection etc. However, it is necessary to have a portable and high-resolution spectrometer for real-time on-site inspection at remote farm or factory. CUHK team invented two new technologies, which broke the traditional boundary. We develop a handheld high-resolution short-wave infrared (SWIR) spectrometer […]
