Welcome to the Pervasive Wireless Systems Group. The group is led by Dr. Domenico Giustiniano and it investigates pervasive communication using innovative wireless systems. The approach of the group is to build and deploy solid prototype systems to support and validate the theoretical and simulation studies. The current main areas of research are:

LOCUS, new H2020 project started in November 2019

Location information and context-awareness are essential for a variety of existing and emerging 5G-based applications. Nevertheless, navigation satellite systems are denied in indoor environments, current cellular systems fail to provide high-accuracy localization, and other local localization technologies (e.g., Wi-Fi or Bluetooth) imply high deployment, maintenance and integration costs. Raw spatiotemporal data are not sufficient by themselves and need to be integrated with tools for the analysis of the behavior of physical targets, to extract relevant features of interests. In this paper, we present LOCUS, an H2020 project (https://www.locus-project.eu/) funded by the European Commission, aiming at the design and implementation of an innovative location management layered platform which will be able to: i) improve localization accuracy, close to theoretical bounds, as well as localization security and privacy, ii) extend localization with physical analytics, iii) extract value out from the combined interaction of localization and analytics, while guaranteeing users’ privacy.

 

 

New ENLIGHT’EM project set to write the next chapter of the LED revolution in the language of ubiquitous networks

IMDEA Networks Institute launched this month in Madrid (Spain) a new Marie Curie European Training Network that marks the birth of a new discipline – Low-energy Visible Light IoT Systems – at the intersection of VLC and networked embedded systems (traditionally the domain of radio communication technologies). ENLIGHT’EM will recruit and train a new generation of innovators and provide them with the know-how to spearhead the development and real-world implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the immediate and beyond-5G world.
