Wireless Communications and Networking Lab-2
The Wireless Communications and Networking Lab-2 focuses on wireless sensors research, including protocol development, solutions for long-term sustainability, energy management, and application development for wide-area monitoring. Students work with experimental wireless sensor networking hardware, including MICAz, XBee-Pro, LORA, Powercast, and others.
Current projects include techniques for overcoming shadowing effects in RSSI-based wireless sensor localization; long-range wide-area sensor networks using LORA; and adaptive protocols for rechargeable and intermittently connected wireless sensor networks.
