Proof of concepts and millimetre wave solution
In addition to developing new 5G research concepts, an important mission of the 5GIC is to carry out technology implementation and performance evaluation in a real environment.
The aim of this activity is to realise, validate and integrate innovative and state of the art designs, algorithms and architectures, in pragmatic conditions and scenarios.
The topics include:
- Innovative antenna designs, including reconfigurable antenna systems capable of dynamically adapting to changing circumstances
- The study, analysis and characterisation of radio wave propagation, including mm-wave channels
- System level design and demonstration that performs algorithmic and architectural co-design to tackle 5G challenges and showcase breakthroughs and algorithmic ideas in practice, both in terms of high level 'proof of concept' validations using software defined research platforms and real-time hardware implementations.
