PhD thesis (Jan 2009): Ultra-wideband wireless channel: measurements, analysis and modeling
Promotor: Leo Ligthart, Gerard Janssen

Expertise: Wireless channel measurements/modeling


Zoubir Irahhauten was a postdoc in the CAS group in the period 2007-2010, on the Smart Moving Process Environment Actuators and Sensors (Smart-PEAS) project. The objective was to develop Smart PEAS-based UWB technology for liquids and apply it in various types of process equipment.

Main tasks: characterization of transmission properties of UWB-signals in various industrial media, design of a UWB antenna for underwater applications, design a test-bed demonstrator for positioning, investigate the use of acoustic signals.
