How to develop and validate a scalable mesh routing solution for IEEE 802.15.4 sensor networks

Speaker: Daniele Lacamera  Company/ Institute: Altran Belgium & Luxembourg Event: 19th work meeting Date: 29 October 2015 Abstract: Routing strategies in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) are somewhat more complex than regular routing in classic wired networks. MANET nodes need to dynamically change their routing paths in order to adapt to the changing topology and the possible […]

How to test and tweak a wireless solution for marine operations under realistic offshore environment conditions

Speaker: Robin Leblon Robin Leblon (M) obtained a Master of Science in Computer Engineering in 2010 from Ghent University after spending a year at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech. Robin started as an R&D engineer at nCentric in 2011 working on the ROBIN-R8 (offshore wireless mesh node). Currently he is responsible for the R&D […]

Cognitive radio demo

Speaker: Mikolaj Chwalisz Company/ Institute: TU Berlin Event: 19th work meeting Date: 29 October 2015 Abstract: This demo will show how to set up and execute simple Cognitive Radio experiment. It will be conducted remotely on the TWIST testbed. Participants will have the possibility to perform presented experiment on their own during the event to gain […]

Generalized Frequency Division Multiplexing (GFDM), a new concept for flexible multi-carrier transmission

Speaker: Martin Danneberg Company/ Institute: TU Dresden Event: 19th work meeting Date: 29 October 2015 Abstract: The demo will show that the free space within the LTE Uplink spectrum can be utilized by secondary GFDM cognitive radio devices. This demonstrates, for instance, how machine type systems can be connected for data exchange or to report information […]

Spectrum wars game

Speaker: Yi Zhang Company/ Institute: Trinity College Dublin Event: 19th work meeting Date: 29 October 2015 Abstract: A four-participant game that illustrates the dynamic choices a cognitive radio must make to avoid interfering with the incumbent user of the spectrum and to coexist with other cognitive radios. Participants use joysticks to control the bandwidth, frequency of […]

Spectrum sensing with heterogeneous hardware using the WInnF standardized Transceiver API

Speaker: Hans Cappelle Company/ Institute:   imec, Somsaï Thao (Thales Communications & Security S.A.S.) Event: 19th work meeting Date: 29 October 2015 Abstract: To enable Cognitive Radio (CR), sensing capabilities are vital. We show a live demo of low power Spectrum Sensing equipment from Imec and JSI. A common transceiver Application Programming Interface (API), specified in […]
