The Wireless InnovationS in Engineering (WISE) research group undertakes cutting-edge wireless research at the physical-layer, device-level, and protocol-level. Current research activities are focused on 5G wireless systems, microwave and millimetre-wave radio frequency structures, radio frequency based sensing and energy harvesting, and others.

The research group is made up of academic staff members and postgraduate students from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE). The staff members are:

Dr. Chris Rapson (Postdoctoral Research Fellow)

DegreeProject DescriptionSupervisor

Implication of Channel Impairments on Radio Frequency Fingerprinting
Channel impairments and interference degrade the unique features embedded in the analog signal of a transmitter, which in turn decrease the RF fingerprinting accuracy. This research project will address the reliability and robustness of RF fingerprinting in an indoor and outdoor environment. This will be a step forward in the actual implementation of RF fingerprinting.

1. Signal processing toolbox of MATLAB would be used to simulate fading channels
2. Free source GNU radio software will be used to develop the radio software for USRP.
3. Experiments will be conducted with USRP to capture live signals under realistic operating conditions, where the effect of environmental impairments will analysed.
4. Simulation results and captured data will be analysed with the help of MATLAB.
