CSE Graduate Students Present Research to Leading Communications Provider

Friday, December 20, 2013

Computer Science and Engineering graduate students Prathibha Datta Kumar and Roberto Coluccio recently presented the results of their research to executives and engineers at the Dallas offices of Numerex Corporation, a leading provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications systems ranging from vehicle tracking to supply chain management.

Datta Kumar and Coluccio were the first students to participate in the Numerex UTA Graduate Student Program launched in the fall 2013 semester.

"We are delighted to have our students working with Numerex on this exciting, real-world project. Numerex’s support of our students makes this a 'win' for all concerned," said Sr. Associate Dean of Engineering and Computer Science and Engineering Interim Chair Lynn Peterson.

Throughout the semester, the students worked on fault detection and real-time analytics in M2M communications systems under the supervision of David Levine, a senior lecturer at UTA, and Steve Emmons and Giacomo Ghidini at Numerex.

"These students are doing a tremendous job using advanced tools from machine learning and online stream processing to tackle real-life problems in the areas of M2M communications systems, and we're proud of working with them and offering them this kind of exposure," said Jeff Smith, CTO of Numerex and a UTA alumnus.

Following the successes of the first semester, Numerex is funding the program into next year, when it will be expanded to support more CSE graduate students.
