Description of the thesis topic
This PhD is an applied research project. A strong motivation is expected from the candidate. The work will be conducted considering all the industrial constraints of the project. An international collaboration with KTH Stockholm will be realized to develop advanced optimization algorithm for optimal antenna design.
The PhD studies will be integrated in the GEOLOC project funded by the french government. GEOLOC project integrate 4 companies and 2 academics with complementary skills on the IoT chain : module design (Insight SIP), IoT terminal (Ubiscale), network operator (Orange), localization solution (Nestwave), Software defined radio (Eurecom) and antenna design (LEAT).
The project aims at developing ultra-low power geolocation solution with high accuracy (5-10m). This system will be used for IoT application, enabling battery miniaturization and long-term operation.
Some key target are :
• To gather information from different standards integrated in the terminal (LoRa, LTE-M) but also (BLE, Wifi, GPS), and different sensors (barometer, accelerometer).
• Use geolocation information to improve MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO) techniques for 5G.
• Minimize global power consumption on the IoT terminal.
The PhD will be supervised by the CMA team for CONTEXT project at LEAT laboratory
The PhD successful candidate is expected to hold or the be about to receive a MSc degree in Telecommunication or Electronic Engineering, Physics or an equivalent degree with a strong electromagnetic background. A specialization in antennas is an asset. Good command of English orally and in writing is required to publish and present results at international conference and in international journals.
