IoT Localization Systems Using Shared Access in Radar Bands - IOTRAD

Project description

Strategic research project of the University of Oulu
Focus institute: Infotech Oulu
Faculty: Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE)


New wireless systems require more and more spectrum. However, especially the desirable frequencies below 6 GHz have already been allocated. Spectrum sharing systems aim to solve this problem by sharing the spectrum between multiple users.
In this project, we consider sharing radar spectrum with internet of things (IoT) systems to enable accurate location tracking for IoT systems.
There will be in the future huge market for IoT devices and many of their applications require localization/location tracking. Since radar systems differ in frequencies, different kinds of IoT systems with different delay tolerances and communication distance requirements could be supported.
