Communication Systems (KS)

The Division of Communication Systems conducts research and education in communications engineering, statistical signal processing and network science.

Photo credit: Karl ÖfverströmA principal focus is on enabling technologies for 5G wireless networks and beyond, with Massive MIMO as the most outstanding, scalable technology component. Specific questions of concern include the design of coding, signal processing, and resource allocation algorithms, as well as implementation aspects and network topologies. Security and robustness of communication links and networks are additional topics of concern.

The division also leads research in positioning technology, with focus on cooperative localization algorithms, positioning in difficult radio environments, and positioning using antenna arrays.
