Underwater wireless communication is the wireless communication in which acoustic signals carry digital information through an underwater channel. Underwater wireless communication networks are constituted by sensors and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that interact to perform specific applications such as underwater monitoring.
Wireless Integrated Network Sensors provide a new monitoring and control capability for transportation, manufacturing, health care, environmental monitoring and safety and security. They combine sensing, signal processing, decision capability, and wireless networking capability in a compact, low power system.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is the application of computers, communications and sensor technology to improve the efficiency or safety of surface transportation systems.ITS aims to transform surface transportation into an effectively managed, well integrated, universally available, customer-oriented and affordable system that ensures quick and safe movement of people and goods.
Human Computer Interaction (HCI) as the name suggests, is related to humans and computers and the way, both interact with each other.Because human-computer interaction studies a human and a machine in conjunction, it draws from supporting knowledge on both the machine and the human side. On the machine side, techniques in computer graphics, operating systems, programming languages, and development environments are relevant. On the human side, communication theory, graphic and industrial design disciplines, linguistics, social sciences, cognitive psychology, and human factors are relevant. Attention to human-machine interaction is important, because poorly designed human- machine interfaces can lead to many unexpected problems.In particular, core vision techniques (body, gesture, gaze) and affective interaction (facial expression recognition, and emotion in audio) which are needed for Multimodal Human Computer Interaction (MMHCI) research.
