  • My main research objective is to add spatial context information through wireless communication. Spatial context information can be absolute, such as a coordinate, a room and floor number, or a specific building, or relative to other devices. Wireless communication technologies I work or worked with include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, active and passive RFID, DASH7, LoRa & LoRaWAN, Sigfox, NB-IoT, and C-V2X protocols. This spatial context information enables track & trace applications, intruder detection, crowd estimates, smart vehicles, etc.
