Modular System for signaling dangerous situations - Development of wireless sensors network based radio-localization techniques and algorithms

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Knowledge of Italian language. Applications and CVs sent by e-mail are not accepted. To apply Final purpose of the research is to study and develop basic elements of a Modular System for signaling dangerous situations, that is made up by several connected subsystems, to be used for a complete monitoring of the area where a search and rescue operation is being conducted by specialized teams. The system as a whole will be able to alert human operators in case of unforeseen danger. Research theme related to this grant is focused on the study and development of efficient and robust radio-localization algorithms based on wireless sensor networks. Radio localization problem is still nowadays unresolved in a general unconstrained environment. State-of-the-art system performances are not sufficient for ensuring the precision level that is needed for a search and rescue operation in critical environment
