Engineering PhD in University College Dublin: Artificial Intelligent Hybrid Wireless Networks in IoT

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Dublin Ireland Communications Engineering Internet Of Things

About the Project

Project details:

This project will focus on investigating artificial intelligent algorithms and developing firmware for applying hybrid wireless networks to the internet of things (IoT). IoT networks are fundamental to the applications of Industrial 4.0, which is leading to the next round of industrial revolution. Different IoT applications have different requirements on service provision. For example, monitoring requires hundreds of sensor devices with low data rates, while remote control through virtual reality needs Gbps data transmission speed for a single link. To meet the various service requirements in IoT, hybrid networks which combine different wireless communication technologies are attracting a substantial amount of research attentions. The project will look into the exploitation of machine learning to intelligently handle the challenges in hybrid network management, where radio frequency technologies are integrated with visible light communications to provide a premium quality of service. The advancement in network management will be programmed in an FPGA-based SDN (software-defined network) platform to carry out tests in a realistic network environment. Further, IoT applications such as precise localization will be studied and developed based on the hybrid network platform.


This PhD position is for 4 years and fully funded by the Engineering School of University College Dublin (covering tuition fees plus an annual tax-free stipend of €18,000). This PhD position will be based on Dublin (Ireland) but needs to travel to Beijing (China) for about four months per year, helping deliver course modules in Beijing Dublin International College. The start date is March - September 2021
