Hub Distributed Communications and Intelligence in Heterogeneous Networks


Funding: Regional Research Fund Agder (RFF Agder) and University of Agder

Principal Investigator Hub: Prof. Baltasar Beferull-Lozano

Topic: Building a new generation of wireless intelligent heterogeneous networks, including both mobile terminals and different types of devices in the context of Wireless Sensor Networks and the emerging paradigms of Internet-of-Things and Cyber-physical Systems, which will be able to meet the extremely demanding future societal needs of the XXI century in emergency management. These wireless networks and devices will be application and user-driven, having the autonomous capability to form highly adaptive and collectively intelligent local node formations and adjust their operational parameters (from physical to network layer) according to their interaction with the environment, energy availability, security requirements and on the communication needs established by users and devices in emergency scenarios, in particular, Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) community.

Role: Technical coordination of Hub

Period: 2013 – 2016
