Research Field: Computer Science and Engineering
Indoor navigation systems would be used in a wide variety of applications including helping visually impaired people, emergency services, and assisted healthcare systems, however the Global Positioning System only works outdoors where it is visible to satellites.
A/Prof Cheema’s research aims to address these challenges and develop techniques that utilize WiFi signals to enable GPS-like capabilities indoors.
Aamir’s public outreach includes promoting computer science to high school students through the Australian Informatics Olympiad Committee, organising programming competitions, and through public talks.
A/Prof Cheema completed his PhD at the University of New South Wales in 2011 and is currently an Associate Professor at Monash University.
