Communications Signal Processing – CSP

Project description

Strategic research project of the University of Oulu

Focus Institute: Infotech Oulu

Faculty: Information Technology and Electrical Engineering

The Communications Signal Processing (CSP) Research Group (RG) focuses on technologies required for efficient implementation of a multitude of devices or network nodes of the future connected society. The focal area of the research is to develop algorithms and their realizations for dense wireless networks, in particular for relatively small communication ranges in indoor and urban areas. This enables new massive multi-antenna access points or base stations, as well as user cooperation to realize the vision of virtual multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications in both peer-to-peer and cellular networks. The system level algorithms are considered both for high rate access connections and their down-scaled versions for low-power and low-complexity wireless sensor network (WSN) applications, with a significant emphasis on medical applications.
