Title: High-Rate Full-Duplex VLC Transmission for Medical Applications

Job Description: Design of high data rate full-duplex transmission links between an AP and a WBAN (i.e., extra-WBAN links); development of efficient PHY-layer techniques and protocols.

Expected Results: Proposing transmission schemes for full-duplex high-rate extra-WBAN communication links; experimental verification of the proposed methods.

Planned secondment: Close collaboration and regular visits to Ecole Centrale de Marseille (ECM) where the ESR will enrol for the doctoral degree. Four month visit at Instituto de Telecomunicações ITAV (Aveiro, Portugal), for carrying out component integration testing and system design feasibility.

Benefits

Additional comments

Global project description:

Visible light communication (VLC) is one of the most promising current areas of research with a significant potential for high-impact results, and successful outcomes might revolutionize utilization of LEDs for modern infrastructures to add novel functionalities in addition to illumination. VLC has been proposed for smart homes and streets, manufacturing and medical environments for increased data security and reduced interference, or a two-way vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside infrastructure communications as part of the emerging intelligent transportation systems for increasing road safety. The VisIoN project aims to train a new generation of early-stage researchers in this emerging area and to make significant contributions to the fundamental scientific understanding and technical knowhow. Targeted application areas include indoor and outdoor VLC access, smart transportation, and medical and manufacturing environments.

Advisors: Dr. HDR Jorge García-Márquez (Oledcomm) / Associate Prof. Ali Khalighi (Ecole Centrale de Marseille).

Framework: Innovative Training Networks (ITN) project «VisIoN – European Training Network on Visible Light Based Interoperatibility and Networking ».

Funding: EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – HORIZON 2020 Marie Skłodowska Curie Action.
