  Next Generation of Low Power Wireless Communication for Internet of Things


   Department of Computer Science

   Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

Internet of Things greatly extends coverage area that human being is able to perceive, access, and even control. By connecting various “Things” to the Internet, the physical world is possible to be measured and managed as needed. As one of widely adopted Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) technologies, LoRa plays an important role in building IoT applications. Its features of long range, low power, and robustness to interference make networking and connecting IoT objects to the Internet achievable at affordable cost. This PhD project aims to investigate next generation of LoRa technologies, such as Star-Mesh LoRa network, explore next generation of LoRa based communication systems for new IoT applications, and demonstrate how next generation of LoRa technology works together with other technologies to deliver better IoT services to end users.

First degree in Computer Science, Control Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mathematics with 2:1 or above. MSc degree in the relevant subject areas is desired.
