Information Freshness in Wireless Networks

With the advent of new services in 5G and beyond such as real-time Internet of things (IoT) applications, autonomous vehicles, and cyber-physical applications, the delivery of fresh status updates is gaining increasing interest. In these networks, various sensors transmit status updates about different monitored processes to a destination. Recently, the age of information (AoI) was proposed as a destination-centric metric to measure the information freshness. The objective of this thesis is to analyze the AoI and develop methods to improve the information freshness to enable emerging time-critical applications in future networks.
