Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Advanced PHY/MAC Design for Infrastructure-less Networks

Acronym: ADIN
Main Objective:
This project aims to integrate MPR, IC, PHY-cooperation, CRD and AM technologies in a single architecture particularly tailored for ILWNs, which is itself a challenging task due to the lack of a central coordinator and the spatial distribution of the nodes. The main
goal of the project is to investigate if the theoretical capacity of ILWNs can be achieved by practical
communication systems, or at least evaluate how far an optimized solution, such as the one proposed in this project, is from the
theoretical capacity bound. The communication systems’ architecture proposed for each node will be based on a cross-layering
design between the physical and the MAC sub-layer.
