Current Projects

  • fast robotics

  • Start: 06/2018
  • Topics:

    The "fast robotics" project within the "fast Zwanzig20" project cluster (funded by BMBF) develops new concepts of distributed systems in the industrial context enabled by wireless communications. Benefits of these systems include (a) reduction of installation and maintenance cost, and (b) increase of system flexibility by orders of magnitude. fast robotics aims at marrying Control Theory and Wireless Communications nto a unified Framework.

  • TUD-NOKIA Collaboration: Design and Evaluation of a Cost-Optimized Cell-Free Massive MIMO System

  • Start: 12/2017
  • Topics:

    Cell-free massive MIMO is a novel massive MIMO system, in which a central unit is connected to several access points (APs) that employ joint transmission/reception to small number of user equipments (UEs). With perfect backhaul and synchronization, cell-free massive MIMO outperforms centralized massive MIMO. The goal of the project to understand the practical gain that cell-free massive MIMO can achieve when realistic assumptions regarding backhaul and impairments are taken into account. Further, cost models will be developed to analyse the cost of deployment of cell-free massive MIMO.

  • Exploiting Adaptive Networking for Joint Design of Communication and Control in Cyber Physical Systems (eNC2)

  • Start: 07/2017
  • Topics:

    The project proposal eNC2 is advocating for joint design of communication and control in cyber physical systems exploiting adaptive networking concepts to enable global (and not local) cyber physical systems. The goal of the project is to carry out multi-disciplinary and collaborative research to advance the fundamental theory for future cyber physical systems (CPSs) combining control and communication (C&C) system not by agnostic coupling but exploring the inter-dependency between C&C system.

  • 5G-Picture: 5G Programmable Infrastructure Converging Disaggregated Network and Compute Resources

  • Start: 06/2017
  • Topics:

    The objective of 5G-PICTURE is to develop and demonstrate a converged fronthaul and backhaul infrastructure integrating advanced wireless and novel optical network solutions, which will interconnect a large number of disaggregated compute, storage, and network elements. This will enable the provisioning of any service across the infrastructure by flexibly and efficiently mixing-and-matching network, compute, and storage resources.​

  • FIND - Future Industrial Network Architecture

  • Start: 01/2017
  • Topics:

    The aim of the FIND project is to develop an integrated architecture for the industrial Internet of tomorrow; in particular, a network control capable of automatically mapping and monitoring the requirements of industrial applications for a variety of resources and networking possibilities. The project seeks to develop a new, future-proof network control through the combination and integration of existing network technologies that will be flexible, secure, and efficient in operation.

  • Orchestration and Reconfiguration Control Architecture (ORCA)

  • Start: 01/2017
  • Topics:

    ORCA offers experimentation facilities to promote wireless innovation in several market segments, including manufacturing, automotive industry, healthcare, ambient assisted living, public events, home automation, and utilities.

    Within the manufacturing market, for instance, application requirements vary from very low latency, up to real-time 3D video-driven interaction between collaborative robots and humans, to non-time critical downloads of large data volumes for updating the software of machines.

    Different applications and services often have to share the wireless infrastructure and the spectral bands, making it very challenging to meet the diverging QoS requirements simultaneously. The control mechanisms that are provided today in wireless technologies are not adequate to deal with extreme (ultra-low latency, ultra-high throughput, ultra- high reliability) and diverging (low AND high data rate, time-critical AND non-time critical) communication needs. Interesting evolutions are happening at different levels, enabling the creation of parallel on demand wireless network slices optimized for a specific set of requirements.

    The overall ORCA objective is to bridge those interesting evolutions at different levels, making them mature enough to enable end-to-end networking experiments going from Software-Defined Radio (SDR), with Software-Defined Networking (SDN) to Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS).
    We will open novel frequency bands, by proposing SDR technology at mmWave frequencies, that is mature and fast enough to be included in end-to-end networking experiments. We will bridge SDR with SDN technology, enabling the creation of multiple virtual networks that operate on the same infrastructure but meet the most diverse and stringent application requirements. We will finally enable advanced reprogramming of the SDR infrastructure, needed for offering versatile testbed facilities, paving the way towards, ultimately, on demand wireless networking and experimentation.​dll

  • ECSEL: REFERENCE

  • Start: 06/2016
  • Topics:

    The main objective of REFERENCE program is to leverage a European leading edge ecosystem in the Radio Frequency (RF) communication applications based on Silicon On Insulator (SOI), a disruptive technology addressing performance, cost and integration needs for the next decade.

    Vodafone Chair is involved in developing algorithms and a hardware description language implementation of algorithms for predistortion of LINC style power amplifier system. This system is to be deployed as part of a wireless aircraft backbone to enable reliable wireless communication for critical non-passenger systems​.
