His research work on wireless network-based monitoring and control is seminal in the field of wireless communication and has led to a whole new sub-field, entitled wireless monitoring and control, which has had high impact in both research and commercial technology. He was a pioneer working on computer control systems safety and security in late twentieth. He invented over 20 patents, among them a nonintrusive water flowrate sensing technology, an optimal LoRa based wireless communication protocol, an innovative direction switchable security gateway, and an adaptive wireless tracking system (UWB) have been commercialized and deployed in several industries world-wide. He has authored two research monographs on Internet-based control and wireless sensor networks respectively. By organizing a series of special issues of various academic journals and other professional service, he has helped grow this field to have a major impact on the academic, research, and industry communities.
