Wireless Channel Sounding using Distributed and Synthetic Arrays

2017/18-2019/20 • $99,000 • PI
As wireless systems have adopted increasing complex methods and techniques to achieve greater capacity, reliability and energy efficiency, their performance has become increasingly sensitive to a broader range of propagation impairments and channel models have become evermore complex.We propose...

Methods and Techniques for Next Generation Wireless Channel Sounders

2016/17 • $31,000 • PI
Characterization and modelling of the wireless propagation channel, long considered among the most important and fundamental activities related to wireless communications, is facing unprecedented challenges as we enter the era of Fifth Generation or 5G Wireless. As wireless systems move to...

Propagation and channel modelling for vehicular environments

2010/11-2015/16 • $116,000 • PI
Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are a suite of emerging technologies that will be used to make operation of land vehicles in urban centres or along transportation corridors safer and more efficient. Because much of the information that will be delivered and exchanged in ITS applications...

NSERC Smart Microgrid Network (NSMG-Net)

2010/11-2014/15 • $3,512,625 • PI,CO
The NSERC Smart Microgrid Network (NSMG-Net) is developing technologies, in partnership with Canadian power utility companies, that will establish Canada's next generation electricity system, the Smart Grid. Comprised of a network of integrated intelligent Microgrids, Canada's Smart Grid will...

The modern electric power grid delivers one of the cleanest forms of energy - electrical energy - to our homes, communities, factories and industrial sites, towns and cities. Electrical energy will continue to play a key role in solving the modern energy crisis by offering new technologies for a...

Next Generation broadband wireless access Employing Fibre-connected massively distributed antennas

2010/11-2012/13 • $687,000 • PI,CO
Next generation broadband wireless access (BWA) systems are evolving towards distributed architectures as a promising solution to meet the ever increasing demand for wireless connectivity. Distribution architectures, exemplified by femto- and pico-cell base-stations/access points deployments and...

Towards Fourth Generation Wireless Networks Incorporating Cognitive Radios

2010/11-2012/13 • $521,742 • PI,CO
In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that the perceived scarcity of the radio spectrum is mainly caused by the inflexible allocation of the spectrum to licensed users. To overcome this problem, flexible dynamic spectrum access by cognitive radios (CRs) has been proposed. It is...

Enabling technologies for secure and reliable wireless body area sensor networks

2010/11 • $202,200 • PI,CO
Recent advances in very-low-power wireless communications, including the development of ZigBee (IEEE 802.15.4) and ultra low power Bluetooth (introduced previously by Nokia as Wibree) have stimulated great interest in the development and application of wireless technology in biomedical...
