Post Summary


 


Radio Tomography, RF Coverage Prediction and Channel Modelling in Wireless Networks:


 


We are seeking postgraduate students to join a new research group in the School of Computer Science and Statistics. We will be researching Radio Tomography (seeing through things with Radio Frequency (RF)), RF propagation and wireless channel modelling. The objectives of this research are to enable the rapid and accurate prediction of RF Coverage, frequency domain response, data throughput and interference mitigation in wireless networks - in particular as it relates to Cognitive Radio and MANETS. We are also interested in intelligent handoff algorithms. Such information is of great interest to wireless network planners and regulators. We are concerned with both fixed and ad-hoc networks.
