  • A distributed body-worn textile-antenna wireless sensor network

    Speaker: Hendrik Rogier and Patrick Van Torre Company/ Institute: UGent Event: 16th work meeting Date: 16 October Abstract: A distributed on-body network, incorporating multiple autonomous wireless sensor nodes was designed and implemented. The sensor nodes are integrated onto a dual-polarized textile antenna platform and allow polarization diversity by means of selection combining. Synchronous data acquisition is […]

  • A proof of concept implementation of cognitive wireless sensor networks in the w-iLab.t testbed

    Speaker: Wei Liu Company/ Institute: UGent – iminds / dept. IBCN Event: 12th work meeting Date: 5 February 2013 Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have become increasingly popular. However, like any wireless communication system, when a large amount of devices compete for the radio spectrum, connectivity may become unstable or even fail. Cognitive Radio (CR) allows radios configuring […]

  • A smart water valve with SigFox connectivity

    Speaker: Mark Indigne Company/ Institute: Hydroko Event: 21st work meeting Date: 27 April 2016 Abstract: Hydroko developed a lead-free smart water meter and valve combination that enables realtime monitoring of the water supply via SigFox connectivity. The water valve can close itself autonomously in case leaks or burst pipes are detected. The valve can also […]

  • Accurate Positioning : Discrepancy between Technology and Reality

    Speaker: Frederic Stubbe, CTO Company/ Institute: Essensium Event: 20th work meeting Date: 8 December 2015 Abstract: Several interesting positioning technologies have been developed to address accurate positioning, both indoor and outdoor. But the real massive deployment of these technologies have been trailing. Why ? In this presentation, several reasons are explored why good positioning technologies […]
