Internet of Things and Industry 4.0
Billions of objects are being to be shattered almost everywhere to enable smart services in different application domains, such as health care, logistics, energy management, military, environmental monitoring, and industry-automation (just to name a few). Thus, it is important to design effective, flexible, energy-efficient, lightweight, distributed, and secure communication architectures. In this context, research activities of Telematics Lab mainly focus on wireless sensor networks, channel access protocols, routing protocols, energy-harvesting architectures, well as real-time communication architectures in industrial environments and middlewares for machine-to-machine systems. In addition, Telematics Lab is also involved in standardization activities in the IETF 6tisch Working Group.
