2016 ieee technical field awards

IEEE Eric E. Sumner Award
Sponsored by Nokia Bell Labs

shuo-Yen robert li, raymond w. Yeung,
and ning Cai

For pioneering contributions to the field of network coding

The pioneering contributions of Shuo-Yen Robert Li, Raymond
W.Yeung, and Ning Cai to network coding have laid the foundation of the field. Their seminal work on linear network coding
has changed the landscape of the information technology by demonstrating an improvement of transmission rates over traditional
routing techniques in communication networks. Linear network
coding has become one of the fastest-growing areas in communication theory. It is now being actively investigated for applications
to mobile/wireless, network infrastructure and protocols, cloud
storage, content distribution networks, and video streaming.

An IEEE Fellow, Li is a Distinguished University Professor
with the University of Electronic Science and Technology of
China, Chengdu, China and Professor Emeritus of the Chinese
University of Hong Kong. An IEEE Fellow, Yeung is the ChohMing Li Professor of Information Engineering with the Chinese
University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, China. An IEEE Fellow,
Cai is a Distinguished Professor with the State Key Laboratory
of Integrated Services Networks (ISN), Xidian University, Xi'an,
Shaanxi, China.

Yonina eldar

petros ioannou

For development of the theory and
implementation of sub-Nyquist sampling
with applications to radar, communications, and ultrasound

For contributions to the design, analysis,
and implementation of adaptive cruisecontrol systems

Yonina Eldar's pioneering work on sub-Nyquist sampling and
reconstruction of sparse analog signals has demonstrated the potential to improve radar, medical imaging, communication, and
storage systems. Bridging the gap between theory and real-world
applications, Eldar developed the concept of "Xampling" for subNyquist sampling and built hardware prototypes to demonstrate
how the technique works in practical settings. The ability to
sample signals at rates significantly lower than the standard Nyquist rate, but without the distortion normally associated with
such techniques, positively impacts power consumption, storage
memory, size, and digital signal processing rates in analog-to-digital converters. Eldar's innovations will enable portable ultrasound
machines for emergency and rural medicine, radar systems with
improved resolution, and better wireless capabilities for cognitive
(intelligent) radio transmission and reception.
An IEEE Fellow, Eldar is a professor with the Technion-Israel
Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel.

The pioneering innovations of Petros Ioannou have been instrumental in making adaptive cruise control (ACC) a practical reality
and spurring its commercial adoption by the automotive industry.
Using forward-looking sensors such as radar, ACC systems automatically adjust a vehicle's speed to maintain a safe driving distance
based on vehicles ahead of it. Unique to Ioannou's work was implementing a time-headway approach to vehicle spacing instead of
the popular belief of using vehicle-to-vehicle communications. By
avoiding the complications of vehicle-to-vehicle communications,
manufacturers such as Ford were able to bring ACC technology
to market quickly. Ioannou's ACC systems also provide smoother
acceleration and speed response, which have demonstrated positive
effects on traffic flow, fuel economy, and the environment.
An IEEE Fellow, Ioannou is a professor with the University of
Southern California, Director of the Center for Advanced Transportation Technologies, and Associate Director of Research of the University Transportation Center METRANs, Los Angeles, CA, USA.
