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 of our research is the development of technology components for 6G wireless networks. Specific topics include the design and optimization of distributed and massive MIMO for high-capacity coverage and low-latency wireless access; methods to support energy-neutral (passive) devices and augmented, virtual and extended reality over wireless; design of wireless networks to support distributed AI and machine learning applications; and implementation of signal processing systems.

Security, robustness and energy-efficiency of communication links and networks are additional topics of importance.

Our work uses tools from statistical signal processing, information and communication theory, machine learning, complex networks and optimization.
