Wireless Multimedia and Networking Research Group

The Wireless Multimedia and Networking (WMN) research group carries out fundamental and applied research on wireless communications and networking, media streaming and closely related fields. It investigates adaptive delivery of media information with an adequate quality of service.

Research activity relies on the different fields of information theory, signal processing and applied mathematics, communication theory, wireless networking and security. The group is active in a number of international collaborations and the research activity is performed in the framework of national and European projects and in tight link with the main European and International fora in the field (eg. IEEE, Wireless World Research Forum, Networld2020, VQEG).

Research themes

The areas of research of the group are summarised in the following topics:

  • Cross-layer design for wireless multimedia transmission
  • Cross-layer and system optimisation for Virtual Distributed Testbeds (VDT)
  • Quality of Experience (QoE) evaluation and management
  • Video quality assessment
  • Wireless Sensor Networks
  • Resource allocation and scheduling for wireless media transmission to multiple users
  • Cognitive radio and SDR
  • Mobility Management for wireless networks and systems
  • Wireless Security
  • 4G and 5G wireless systems
  • 3D / Stereoscopic video
  • Video broadcasting
  • Video streaming
  • Error resilient image / video coding
  • Decision theory and frame synchronization
  • Application of wireless technologies to healthcare areas.
