Signal Processing for Self-Organizing Wireless Networks (VICI-SOWN)Themes: Signal processing for communication
Mathematical foundations to develop large self-organizing networks based on cognitive radio devices that are capable of sensing the radio spectrum and adapt accordingly.The goal of this NWO VICI project is to shift from centralized communication networks to distributed self-organizing networks where nodes adapt their procedures (related to spectrum utilization, sensing, information processing, and localization) based on only local information. To develop large self-organizing networks we need cognitive radio devices that are capable of sensing the radio spectrum and adapt accordingly. We further require energy efficient distributed information processing and localization algorithms for large sensor networks. The mathematical tools we want to build on are compressed sampling, convex optimization, game theory, and linear algebra.
