IoT with a soft touch

Publicerad: 2018-09-06

We invite you to get inspired and share ideas on the soft touch of IoT. This technology can be easily designed to fit in many applications serving our society and a sustainable future.

The program will include:

  • Topical talks on technologies and applications
  • Fika blended with real-life (inter)net-of-people-and-things
  • Interactive panel discussion and wrap-up

The event is supported by the equal opportunities program and Lise Meitner professorship of Lund University. We are looking forward to welcoming diverse participants.

Registration is required (free of charge).

The IoT with a Soft Touch Workshop is organised in connection with the Lund Circuit Design Workshop 2018 and we encourage participants to attend both workshops.

Call for posters

PhD students attending the workshop are invited to present posters describing their researh. For poster submission, see the workshop website.

Radio Based Positioning - Digit@LTH seminar by Prof. Fredrik Tufvesson

Publicerad: 2018-08-14

Karta: Ole Römers Väg 3 in Lund, E:2358Speaker:  Fredrik Tufvesson, Prof in Radio Systems

Topic: On Radiobased Positioning

When: 20 September at 9.00-10.00

Where: Lund university, E-huset, Ole Römers väg 3. Start in EIT Lunch-room (E:2328) 

Positioning and localization are becoming more and more important in our everyday life. GPS and other satellite-based solutions provide possibilities to locate ourselves and GPS enabled devices, but there is a need for higher accuracy, low cost solutions and more robust performance in challenging scenarios such as indoors and in street canyons where the satellites are shadowed by the buildings. In this talk, we discuss the fundamentals of radio based positioning and how we can use cellular signals to perform positioning and localization in a new way with improved performance. We discuss current trends in 5G and how they will influence positioning and localization possibilities. Finally, we also discuss how machine learning can be used to learn the details of the radio environment to complement camera or Lidar based positioning.

Fredrik Tufvesson received his Ph.D. in 2000 from Lund University in Sweden. After two years at a startup company, he joined the department of Electrical and Information Technology at Lund University, where he is now professor of radio systems. His main research interest is the interplay between the radio channel and the rest of the communication system with various applications in 5G systems such as massive MIMO, mm wave communication, vehicular communication and radio based positioning.

Fredrik has authored around 80 journal papers and 140 conference papers, he is fellow of the IEEE and recently he got the Neal Shepherd Memorial Award for the best propagation paper in IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology and the IEEE Communications Society best tutorial paper award.

Lic. Seminar: Improving Throughput and Minimising Age of Information in dense WLANs, Using Cooperative Techniques by Antonio Fra

Publicerad: 2017-12-13

Title: Improving Throughput and Minimising Age of Information in dense WLANs, Using Cooperative Techniques

Presenter: Antonio Franco - see

Reviewer: Professor Markus Fiedler, Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH)

Supervisor: Professor Björn Landfeldt, EIT

Examiner: Universitetslektor Erik Larsson, EIT


Mobile and wireless data are in increasing demand worldwide. New trends such the Internet of Things paradigm and the Smart City paradigm describe scenarios comprising thousands of devices all exchanging informations between each others wirelessly ? or through the WAN to another device, possibly connected to another WLAN. Operators and radio engineers are faced with the problem of designing efficient ways to share the electromagnetic spectrum ? a scarce and expensive resource ? between thousands of devices.

In this context, operators look at the unlicensed spectrum as possible solu- tion to complement the existing infrastructure. Unfortunately, the IEEE 802.11 MAC family, the most widespread MAC protocol in the unlicensed portion of the spectrum, still suffers when managing a large number of interconnected devices. In this thesis we are both addressing the open problems in the IEEE 802.11 MAC scheme and our contributions on their solution. 
Specifically, in the first part of the thesis we are going to present the IEEE 802.11 MAC scheme and the challenges it faces, along with solutions already present in literature. We are also going to show a new metric recently defined in literature called the Age of Information (AoI). This new metric is a measure how fresh is the piece of information stored in a remote receiver. It received interest in the literature, but little is known how it behaves in a IEEE 802.11 WLAN.
In the second part of the thesis we present two papers that try to address the problem of designing new protocols that let the devices cooperate in order to achieve a common goal. They specifically focus on two metrics. The first paper addresses throughput and collisions reduction through a new MAC scheme that uses RSSI to identify other devices in a WLAN, and uses a priority base access system in order to cooperate in turns with them. We show, through simulation, that this scheme outperforms the classical IEEE 802.11 DCF mode of operation, especially in WLANs subject to high loads.

The second paper addresses the AoI both in terms of average and variance, for sensor nodes immersed in a dense WLAN that send pieces of information to a remote server via a WAN connection. We study both those metrics for a link with high variance and low variance delay. We construct and test, via means of simulations, an AoI-aware MAC, called LUPMAC - Latest Update Medium Access Scheme, aimed at reducing both the average AoI and the AoI variance at the remote server side, being also resilient to variations on the wired remote connection.

In those two papers we present two schemes suitable for the unlicensed spectrum environment, addressing both scheduling and queuing policies. They are only slight modifications to the already widely deployed IEEE 802.11 MAC. They significantly improve the metrics they focus on. They tend not to rely on a centralized unit, as most random access schemes do, and let the devices cooperate to a certain extent in order not to pollute the channel with undesired retransmissions.
