Farzad Tofigh, completed his PhD at University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) in 2019 with the focus on developing an infrastructure to estimate density distribution using distributed sensor networks which led to various publications and patents.
As a chief member of robotics team from 2008 to 2012, he led various level of electronic circuits and embedded system designs and programming. At 2012, he co-founded a company (FELMA) where he designed and implemented data collection and control systems for electromechanical structures such as control system of a shaking table in the earthquake lab at institutional context. Furthermore, he has a distinguished research record and worked as a researcher in several projects to design and implement IoT solutions for UTS industry partners.

A novel compact and multiband dipole antenna with a planar fractal-inspired configuration is presented. Several series capacitances and a parasitic element are employed as loading. Results show that the loading improves the impedance matching and enables the proposed antenna to radiate at multiple frequency bands which are not harmonically related. In addition, the proposed loaded dipole antenna offers a high degree of miniaturization in comparing with the unloaded host dipole antenna. The simulated |S11| response of the proposed loaded dipole antenna shows five distinct resonant bands with the center resonant frequencies of 1.52 GHz, 3.62 GHz, 4.6GHz, 6.9 GHz, and 9.43GHz with the associated -10 dB bandwidths of 50MHz, 470 MHz, 170 MHz, 1.15 GHz, and 360 MHz, respectively. A fabricated prototype has compact dimensions of the 37mm × 14mm × 1.6mm, and exhibits good agreement between the measured and simulated S-parameters.

Crowd distribution is a challenging issue in the management and design levels. This paper provides a passive method to derive the crowd density distribution using Wi-Fi measurements on a real scenario. Six WiFi access points (AP) are deployed in the platform 2/3 of Redfern station, Sydney to monitor the platform for a week. Based on the probability maps that are built using RSSI measurements and prior knowledge, the crowd distribution is calculated on the platform and its results are compared with distributions acquired from CCTV images. Final density heat maps are in good agreement with the acquired results from CCTV cameras.
