Open-Access Full-Duplex Demo Won the Creative Tech Award in Engineering in the 2019 NYC Media Labโ€™s Annual Summit

A demo presented in the 2018 NYC Media Lab’s Annual Summit by Columbia M.S. and undergraduate students Guy Farkash and Jackson Welles received the Creative Tech Award in Engineering (selected from about 100 demos presented).

The demo, titled “Open-Access Full-Duplex Wireless in the ORBIT Testbed“, presents a practical open-access full-duplex radio enabling simultaneous transmission and reception on the same frequency channel for 5G wireless communications. The full-duplex radio was integrated in the ORBIT testbed and the full-duplex experiment is one of the pilot experiments for the NSF PAWR COSMOS testbed. This demo is based on demonstration by Columbia Ph.D. student Tingjun Chen at IEEE INFOCOM’18 in April, 2018.
