The aviation industry is interested in wireless solutions for in-plane connectivity to improve safety and reduce airplane cost and weight. Ultra-wideband (UWB) seems to be a suitable technology for this purpose due to low power consumption, high data rate, and coexistence with other systems.
Daniel Neuhold, researcher in the team of Christian Bettstetter, received a “scholarship of excellence” from the Federation of Austrian Industries (Carinthia) and the Economic Chamber for a six-month research stay abroad.
Lakeside Labs is a non-profit organization for scientific research and development of self-organizing networked systems. Our goal is to apply and improve self-organization in the areas of IoT, robotics and transportation. It has been a successful year.
A time synchronization technique for networked devices with low-precision oscillators and low computational power is proposed and evaluated by experiments.
The airplane industry is interested in replacing heavy cables in aircraft by wireless connectivity. We are currently investigating the potential and feasibility of ultra-wideband (UWB) technology as an option for such systems.
Synchronization algorithms based on the theory of pulse-coupled oscillators are evaluated on programmable radios. It is experimentally demonstrated that the stochastic nature of coupling is a key ingredient for convergence to synchrony. We propose a distributed algorithm for automatic phase rate equalization and show that synchronization precisions below one microsecond are possible.
The University of Klagenfurt launches a two-year master program in Information and Communications Engineering (ICE). The program is taught entirely in English and is recommended for students with an undergraduate degree in electrical or computer engineering.
