Mobile, pervasive, and autonomous communication technologies (MPACT) Lab is located at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of North Carolina State University. The main focus of our lab, as its name suggests, is to conduct fundamental and applied research in three broad aspects related to communication technologies.
- Mobile: 4G LTE and 5G wireless networks, mmWave communications, wireless localization, interference/mobility management, propagation measurements/modeling, public safety communications.
- Pervasive: Heterogeneous and small cell networks, network densification, Internet of things (IoT), unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) communications, visible light communications, UWB/mmWave radars.
- Autonomous: Cognitive radio, spectrum sharing, UAV autonomous deployment/navigation, occupancy monitoring, smart cities, cyber-physical systems.
Priyanka Sinha, Martins Ezuma, and Moin Uddin Chowdhury (from left to right) have joined the MPACT group as PhD students.
Chethan Kumar has joined MPACT group as a new PhD student from Indian Institute of Science.
MPACT PhD students Karthik Vasudeva (mobility management for HetNets) and Bekir S. Ciftler (localization for IoT) have successfully defended their dissertation at FIU and graduated. We wish them best luck for the rest of their careers.
Researchers at North Carolina State University are launching a project aimed at researching and developing high-performance communications, networking and air traffic management (ATM) systems, including navigation and surveillance for both manned aircraft and unmanned...
