1) Internet of things (IoT):

Novel ultra-low power receiver architectures: investigation of digital-rich architectures for IoT standards, like Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE); Receiver algorithm design: investigation of novel low power algorithms for phase/frequency/timing synchronization and tracking; High efficiency transmitter concepts: investigation of novel digital pre-processing and calibration algorithms;

2) Wireless LAN Standardization:

Simulator development for next generation Wireless LANs: implementation, analysis, and optimization of novel PHY and MAC architectures in context of 802.11ax, 802.11ay, and 802.11be (EHT); Novel modulation and coding concepts: Bridging the gap to the ultimate Shannon capacity be new modulation and error correction coding schemes; Investigation of analog and digital beamforming techniques for applications such as mm-wave or improved spatial reuse in multi-user scenarios

3) Indoor localization:

Semi–Automatic Map Creation for Indoor Localization: investigation of sequence-based fingerprinting for unique estimation of location and heading; Client/server architecture: implementation of a client/server architecture for upload and server-side post-processing of mobile device sensor data; Sensor calibration: implementation and efficiency study of offline and online calibration techniques for mobile device sensors;

4) Radar:

Design & test innovative antenna layout in the mm-wave frequency band; Digital signal processing topic: localize radar targets in the 3D space with a high resolution, evaluate the target speed profile, track and predict their movement Signal processing topic: identify target types applying machine learning algorithms on radar signatures/measurements

Requisiti principali:
  • The positions are meant only for master degree students of any European University, currently in their last years of study, without a finalized degree.
  • We expect good mathematical skills and depending on the topic, good know-how in digital communications or radar technology, and related signal processing.
  • Furthermore, it is desirable that the applicant has some experience with MATLAB and/or Simulink.
  • Fluent communication in English (written and spoken) is essential.
  • Finally, in our projects it is key to be self-motivated and creative, to work focused and self-dependent and bring passion and joy for research and innovation.
