Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) has become synonymous in its use for logistical tracking purposes, providing large businesses, military, and governments alike with better insight into their supply chains. RFID technology is also becoming ever more important for the evolving Internet-of-Things (IoT) where billions upon trillions of devices are electronically interconnected through the world. Many of these devices are expected to leverage RFID for tagging, tracking, and sensing applications where low-cost, small form-factor, extremely low-power sensors are required. Non-surprisingly, wireless power transfer (WPT) technology is critical for enabling the IoT. This course introduces the basic concepts of RFID technology, reviews the major parts of a system, and reviews the fundamentals of wireless power transfer.

Learning Outcomes

 ● describe what an RFID system is and how it works.
 ● compare the differences between common types of RFID systems.
 ● name the major pieces of an RFID system.
 ● compute a backscatter radio link budget.
 ● explain wireless power transfer processes.
 ● name different mechanisms of wireless power transfer.
 ● compare the benefits and drawbacks of wireless power approaches.
★Course Level: Introductory

This course is intended for students, technicians, engineers, and managers in government, academia, and industry who are looking to gain insight into RFID and WPT technology. Basic knowledge of engineering or science are recommended.

This course provides an introduction to the exciting and rapidly growing field of light detection and ranging (LIDAR) on autonomous vehicles. The rapid growth of new lasers and detectors, along with miniaturization of computers and high-speed data acquisition systems, is opening many new opportunities for LIDAR systems in applications that require smaller and more portable instruments. Since the invention of LIDAR in the 1960s, systems have evolved from large instruments mounted in unmovable laboratories or on trucks and trailers, to smaller and dramatically more portable instruments. This course reviews the basic principles that govern the design of any LIDAR system, emphasizing how these principles can be used to design and analyze small, portable LIDAR systems uniquely tailored to guiding and performing remote sensing measurements from autonomous vehicles on the road, in the air, and in the water.

Learning Outcomes

 ● explain the parameters that determine the size and weight of a LIDAR system.
 ● identify application-specific requirements that drove the design of state-of-the-art LIDAR systems for use in emerging applications.
 ● describe the advantages and disadvantages of staring and scanning LIDAR systems.
 ● estimate the maximum detectable range and the range resolution for a LIDAR instrument.
 ● distinguish between various LIDAR system designs for use on autonomous vehicles.
 ● compare advantages and disadvantages of different designs for small, portable LIDAR systems.
 ● recognize key technologies to watch or work on for achieving your dream miniature LIDAR.
★Course Level: Introductory

Engineers, scientists, technicians, or managers who want to understand how LIDAR works and what limits the size and capabilities of LIDAR instruments used for autonomous vehicles and other emerging applications. Undergraduate training in engineering or science is assumed.
