  Wireless Sensor Networks for Localisation in Indoor and Outdoor Environments


   Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering

   Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The aim of this project is to develop scalable and efficient techniques and algorithms for localisation in different environments, based on data in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). The problem of localisation (finding the coordinates) of a moving object has been intensively studied during the last decades. This problem arises in many applications: e-Health monitoring, surveillance, rescuing operations, to name a few. WSNs are prone to sensor failures, lack of line-of-sight and other obscurations. The project will focus on different methods for localisation that can provide efficient solutions both indoor and outdoor and are able to overcome some of the challenges that existing methods face.
