Wireless Networks for Disaster Response
We are involved in the design of highly reliable distributed wireless networks for disaster response: Ensuring high quality, long-lifetime communications where there is no available, functional, infrastructure.
Communications Networks for Disaster Response – we are involved in design aspects of Distributed Wireless Networks
- In place of non-operational cellular/fixed infrastructure
- And multi-tier networks monitoring masses of evacuees
We are using distributed signal processing in peer-aware (peer-to-peer) personal area networks communications (PAC). In this context we are contributing to the formation of the IEEE 802.15.8 Standard
We have specified a method for transmit power control (PC) and general resource allocation
- Implemented using non-cooperative game theory, with Pareto-optimal outcomes
- Improving reliability, network lifetime, and enabling rapid high-priority communications
This contribution on PC has been made to the IEEE 802.15.8 Standard (PAC).
We are collaborating with the Dependable Wireless Laboratory at NICT Japan.
