Inria Associate Teams Not Involved in an Inria International Labs

  • Title: Cognitive Wireless Networks from Theory to Implementation

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • Princeton (United States) - electrical engeneering departement - H. Vincent Poor

  • Start year: 2015

  • See also: https://project.inria.fr/cowin/

  • The objective of this team is to strengthen the research efforts on emerging software radio and cognitive radio technologies. The team will count on: first, the cognitive radio test-bed CorteXlab recently set up by the Socrate team within the FIT Equipex, second the leading position of Vincent Poor's team in the field of network information theory and third the Orbit Platform of Rutgers university. The goal is to lead research in both the information theory community and the applied research community so as to reinforce the link between both communities. This work will concern architecture and programs of software radio equipments, distributed and cognitive algorithms for radio resource allocation, cognitive radio scenario experimentations, fundamental limits of cooperative wireless channels and the set up of common experimental infrastructure and protocols for research on cognitive wireless networks.
