Professor Wyglinski's work focuses on devising new, reliable, and robust wireless communications using artificial intelligence and machine learning.Given society's growing reliance on wireless connectivity, it is important that wireless communications and networking systems are dependable and can co-exist with each other. His research into novel wireless communication systems will impact society in how they connect with each other and their surrounding environment, including the Internet of Things, smart cities, next-generation transportation systems, and eHealth. He says 5G communications will allow organizations to maintain critical operations in a safe and virtual manner during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alex Wyglinski, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and robotics engineering, wrote a piece for the Hartford Courant on how critical 5G technology is to helping people whose work depends on the internet do their jobs better, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The MetroWest Daily News sought insight from Alexander Wyglinski, professor of electrical and robotics engineering, for this article. Wyglinski said many autonomous vehicles on the road today are electric and tend to have better technology inside them. Also, they’re easier to gauge range-wise since they run on a battery.
