Reliable IoT Schemes for Industrial Harsh Environments for the Next Generation of the Internet of Things
OBTAINING DOCTOR DEGREE: 10/2019
The coexistence and transmission of data streams of a distinct criticality, and adherence to the requirements of service quality and reliability in harsh environments, has become one of the largest technological challenges to be overcome during the upcoming years by the scientific community.
The roll-out of next-generation services requires that compliance with stringent requirements is ensured by the communication networks. It must also be taken into account that existing communication protocols currently employ classical techniques, which under many situations cannot achieve the theoretical communication channel limits. Environments, such as precision industrial automation, distributed robot synchronisation and the remote actuation of critical systems, require a high degree of reliability within communication networks. If we consider hostile environments to also include those that contemplate interference-based packet loss, etc., then the challenge extends to greater dimensions.
This dissertation proposal will broaden the definition of communication schemes that allow the unfolding of services with enhanced reliability and cyber security requirements for harsh environments (interferences, packet loss, etc.) in the Internet of Things (IoT). For such, concepts related to new wireless communication schemes (and No-New-Wires) will be developed for highly demanding environments, by using techniques that improve the reliability of connectivity between IoT nodes. The proposed communication schemes must also contemplate low-power requirements and the HW resource limits for the IoT nodes.
The development of the Dissertation will validate the proposed schemes and depict, using simulation and implementation models of real prototypes, the achievable results with the new techniques proposed by the Doctoral Candidate. For the definition of the validation scenarios, it will require the participation of experts from various areas and the interaction with various industrial companies.
The Doctoral Candidate will be part of a team of people consisting of Doctors and Senior Engineers from various specialities and with experience in the proposed line of research, whereby forming an interdisciplinary and highly qualified team.The dissertation will contemplate the possibility of a research visit at a renowned international centre (R&D Centre or university), which will allow the Doctoral Candidate to work within a highly skilled environment and to obtain the International Major for the Doctorate.
