Future Wireless Systems

Recently machine-to-machine communications has emerged as an enabling technology for the practical realization of Internet-of-Things (IoT). Such networks face several challenges like connectivity among large number of machines with diverse functionalities, wide coverage area, resource and QoS constraints. Dr Indrakshi Dey leads the project FD-M2Mcomm, a cross-layer full-duplex design will be proposed to address the above-mentioned challenges of machine-to-machine communication systems.

The IoT will see the transmission of huge quantities of sensitive personal information that require security. Unfortunately, most IoT devices rely on small, low-cost and battery-operated platforms, with very limited computational power. Such simplistic hardware does not support state-of-the-art cryptography. The project Wireless-SPIne is a radical new approach to ensure IoT security in physical layer, led by Dr Adam Narbudowicz.

Application of Complex Systems Science to Wireless Systems

Dr Harun Siljak leads the project COCODIMM, which aims at observing Distributed Massive MIMO as a complex system with rich spatio-temporal dynamics. Complex systems science, control and nonlinear dynamics meet reversible computation and hardware design in the process of understanding the physics and the engineering of massive MIMO.
