Smart power optimization for wireless transceivers

2013/14-2017/18 • $145,000 • PI
The evolution of wireless communications follows two different directions: one focused on star-mesh architectures, with expensive infrastructure and "low cost" mobile terminals (e.g. 4G cellular network) and one based on cheap devices for peer-to-peer communications (e.g. WLAN, Wireless Sensor...

Integrated FM-radio node for power grid optimization

2017/18 • $25,000 • PI
In this project in collaboration with E-radio Inc. we will investigate the possibility to create a fully integrated FM radio RDS (RadioData System) receiver for the optimization of the electrical power grid. The idea is to design a very sensitive FM radio (beyond thestate of the art) that can be...

Wireless sensor network for steelmaking optimization

2015/16 • $22,500 • PI
The optimization of steelmaking processes is based on multiple sensors placed around the furnace to monitor several parameters such as gases concentrations, temperature and vibrations. These sensors have to survive in the very harsh environment of the furnace in order to provide reliable...
