Wireless communications

communications networks

The research in the wireless communications group focuses on a range of key technologies for future wireless communication systems. These include massive MIMO, mmWave communications, Heterogeneous networks, device to device (D2D) communications, UAV-aided (unmanned aerial vehicle) network, and Intelligent Reflecting Surface (IRS) for wireless communications etc. The group is also interested in investigating the challenges in wireless communications for high-speed railway systems.

The following projects are currently under investigation by the group:

  • Channel estimation and precoding for mmWave massive MIMO
  • Channel estimation and precoding for IRS aided mmWave systems
  • Machine-learning based handover techniques for high-speed rail communication systems
  • Resource allocation and handover management for UAV networks
  • EMI and IEMI Resistant Signalling and Communication Systems for High-speed rail
  • Handover for Ultra-Dense Small Cell Network and HetNet
  • Coordinated Multiple Point Transmission (CoMP) in Heterogeneous network
  • Spatial modulation techniques for 5G massive MIMO systems
  • Resource allocation and interference mitigation for Heterogeneous network
  • Resource allocation and mode selection for Device to device and vehicular to vehicular communications
