Research summary

Communication networks no longer connect just people, but are evolving into billions of interconnected smart machine-type devices that enable automatic collection of data with little or no human intervention. This concept, known as the Internet of Things (IoT), virtually allows any object to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating unlimited opportunities for the integration of the physical world into automated computer-based systems. IoT is seen as the next stage of the information revolution with the potential to revolutionise our lives through many new generation smart applications such as (smart homes, smart buildings and cities, smart transportation systems, and smart healthcare services, among many others) that will lead to significant socio-economic benefits. My research aims to develop an optimised framework for the next generation mobile communication networks like LTE-A/ 5G so that it could meet the application and system specific stringent requirements of IoT. Leveraging few of the key features of next generation mobile networks like very high data rate, low latency and high reliability, our final objective is to design a highly efficient physical IoT environment which would be compatible with pervasive mobile communication network. Our grand vision is to provide the voice and mouthpiece for our physical surroundings enabling them to interact with us.
