The various activities of the Lab are funded through several national and international projects with both public and private funding.

Data-driven cyber-physical networked systems for autonomous cognitive control and adaptive learning in industrial & urban water environments (INDURB)

The WISENET Lab has obtained also funding for the INDURB project from the IKTPLUSS Program, Research Council of Norway. The project INDURB focuses on data-driven cyber-physical networked systems for autonomous cognitive control in water environments.

Only two long-term research projects (out of more than 100 project proposal applications) were selected in the whole IKTPLUSS Call, one of them INDURB, led by the WISENET Lab at UiA.

The INDURB project involves highly multidisciplinary research across different areas, and in addition to international cooperation, it will have a direct strong impact on both the Sørlandet region and national-wise through the various water-related circuits and problems.

Low-altitude UAV Communication and Tracking (LUCAT)

The LUCAT project aims to develop advanced and robust algorithms to detect and accurately trace rapidly moving UAVs, popularly called drones. Most of the research will take place at the University of Agder’s WISENET Laboratory and the Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber-Physical systems, IISc Bangalore, India. This is the only project where the prestigious Indian University IISc collaborates with a Norwegian university in relation to the areas of signal processing, communication technology and machine learning.

IT Integration, Data Analytics and Big Data (subproject WP6) – Offshore Mechatronics (Center of Research-Driven Innovation SFI)

Our goal is to investigate analytical methods and network designs that aggregate the information from different components, exploit their correlated behaviors, utilizing novel data mining adaptive methods to predict and detect “unexpected” anomalies in system behavior or changes in the performance of different types of (sequential or in-loop) processes.

Next Generation Wireless Devices and Networks enabled by Self-Organized Spectrum Cartography (WISECART)

WISECART is a cutting edge project funded from the FRIPRO TOPPFORSK Programme aiming at taking device-to-device (D2D) communication beyond simple proximity services by building self-organized, adaptive mesh type formations of  wireless devices considering social engagements across the lower layers of the protocol stack.

In a press release from the Research Council, Prime Minister Erna Solberg (T.) states that Toppforsk is a new and targeted initiative to ensure good long-term funding for research environments that can become internationally leaders in their field.
