Physical Layer

We plan to study how advanced physical layers can be used in low-power wireless networks. For instance, collaborative techniques such as multiple antennas (e.g. the Massive MIMO technology) can improve communication efficiency. The idea is to use a massive network densification by drastically increasing the number of sensors in a given area in a Time Division Duplex (TDD) mode with time reversal. The first period allows the sensors to estimate the channel state and, after time reversal, the second period is to transmit the data sensed. Other techniques, such as interference cancellation, are also possible.
