WSN Team

Daniela DRAGOMIRESCU is Professor at  INSA Toulouse. She is part of Micro and Nanosystems for Wireless Communication Group  at  LAAS-CNRS  laboratory, Toulouse, France. She is in charge with the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) team. The team work focus on Physical and MAC layer development using UWB communication. The major applications fields are WSN for aerospace and health.  Development of WPAN /WLAN with ultra high data rate communications are also studied.

WSN Team main research areas are :

-  Reconfigurable, energy efficient PHY layer based on IR-UWB.

-  Development and VHDL-AMS modeling of ultra low power, wideband 60GHz transceiver.

-  MAC layer with new services like very precise clock synchronization and localization over wireless communication

-  Flexible substrate heterogeneous integration potentialities for the complete wireless communicating nodes were studied and first results are very promising.

-  WSN simulator for IR-UWB
