Communications Research Laboratory
The Communications Research Laboratory (CRL) will be established in Fall 2013 by Assist. Prof. Engin Maşazade. Students are welcome to apply to work in CRL lab at any level, ranging from graduation project to PhD. dissertation study.
Current Projects: Adaptive Resource Management in Wireless Sensor Networks (This project is supported by the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) under Career Award 113E220)
A wireless sensor network (WSN) is composed of large number of spatially distributed sensors in a given region of interest. When wireless sensors are properly networked, they are able to perform different crucial tasks that are useful in a wide range of applications such as environmental monitoring or disaster relief operations. Therefore, WSN’s have gained significant attention in academic research and industry. Since sensors are assumed to be tiny, battery-powered devices, adaptive sensor management strategies in WSNs determine the optimal way to manage system resources and task a group of sensors to collect measurements for statistical inference. Recently, adaptive resource management has gained significant interest among researchers working in the fields of communications, wireless networks and statistical signal processing.
In this project, we are interested in WSN applications such as distributed detection, parameter or field intensity estimation, energy emitting object localization and target tracking.
