Mission

The WiPLi Lab conducts research on next generation wireless and power line systems. It developes innovative applications and technical solutions for next generation wireless and power line systems, infomobility, smart grids


Basic Research

The WiPLi Lab group members are addressing basic research problems among which:

  • fundamental limits of wireless communications
  • analysis of multiple access channels
  • multiuser detection
  • optimal design of filter bank modulation schemes
  • space-time coding schemes
  • wireless localization techniques
  • RFID protocols
  • WLAN, UWB and 60 GHz sytem analysis

  • fundamental limits of power line communications
  • LV, MV and in-vehicle PL channel modeling
  • optimal PL transmission schemes
  • smart grids and smart home

Applied Research

The WiPLi Lab aims at transfering the knowledge that is acquired through basic research endeavours, into practical solutions and systems. Technology transfer is implemented via the participation in industrial projects and consultancy activity. Significant experience has been gained by the group starting from the conceivement of ideas, applications, market opportunities, to specific technical solutions in the ICT world.

Technical Solution Design and Prototyping

  • System design based on innovative technical solution
  • Hardware prototyping for evaluation of performance, feasibility and cost

Technical Feasibility Studies

  • Analysis of requirements and technical feasibility
  • Analysis of existing solutions and development of custom solutions

Ideas and Applications

  • Conceivement of applications and business opportunities
  • Development of business plans for technical and economical feasibility study

Equipment

The WiPLi Lab is equipped with state of the art workstations for numerical analysis and measurement equipment up to 20 GHz. An anechoic chamber for RF antenna tests and EMC tests is also available. A development platform for rapid prototyping of wide band MIMO systems has been built, as well as PLC couplers and PLC configurable modems.
