  • The Inria's Research Teams produce an annual Activity Report presenting their activities and their results of the year. These reports include the team members, the scientific program, the software developed by the team and the new results of the year. The report also describes the grants, contracts and the activities of dissemination and teaching. Finally, the report gives the list of publications of the year.

Alternative communication paradigms

Participants : Antonio Costanzo, Valeria Loscri.

Nowadays, the always growing of connected objects and the strong demand to downsizing the devices in order to make the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm more pervasive and ubiquitous, has motivated academic and industry people to investigate from one side mechanisms able to adapt quickly to the rapid external changes and to the quality of Services (QoS) parameters defined by the users and imposed by the adoption of new services and from another side, the investigation of portion of spectrum that have not been considered till this moment such as Terahertz band.

Nowadays, the always growing of connected objects and the strong demand to downsizing the devices in order to make the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm more pervasive and ubiquitous, has motivated academic and industry people to investigate from one side mechanisms able to adapt quickly to the rapid external changes and to the quality of Services (QoS) parameters defined by the users and imposed by the adoption of new services and from another side, the investigation of portion of spectrum that have not been considered till this moment such as Terahertz band. In order to be able to realize a paradigm shift towards the Internet of Everything concept, a downsizing of devices is imposed allowing new applications as in-vivo diagnosis and monitoring. In order to be effective at this level it is imperative to analyze the new context, by highlighting the unique features to concretely realize the IoE paradigm. In this context, we have studied quantum particles called phonons, quasi-particles derived from vibrations of atoms in solids. Phonons have been envisaged as enabler of information transfer and their special characteristics have been exploited in [17]. Phonons have been also considered for a quantum channel in [26]. Another interesting approach for enabling the nano communication paradigm is represented by molecular communication. In particular, a main issue that is important to face is the coexistence between an artificial molecular communication and a biological system as explained in [40]. Alternative communication paradigms have attracted a lot of attention in the last a few years, not only by academic researchers but also by industry. Research on optical communication and in particular the possible exploitation of Visible Light communication with a twofold objective, to illuminate and to communicate has been object of an increasing interest. In this directions, we have proposed context-aware VLC systems in[39], [38] and [24]. The context is different in respect to the “traditional” wireless communication, since the external environment can change fastly and abruptly. Based on this primary observation, our main objective is to make theVLC system aware of the external noise and try to make it as robust as possible in respect of it.
