Spring Semester (Frühjahrssemester)
(Redesigned course, new content for spring 2020!)
Dr. Marc Kuhn
Thursday 08.00 - 12.00; LFW C 4
By the end of this course, students will be able to
- understand and explain the characteristics of mobile wireless channels
- illustrate physical layer limits and challenges of mobile communication systems
- model and simulate PHY technologies of WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and 3G, 4G, and 5G mobile communications standards
- explain the use of wireless technologies in the context of IoT and autonomous driving
- understand and illustrate the use of QoS measurements in mobile networks for benchmarking
Present and future (5G and cellular IoT) of mobile communication systems. The lecture course covers design, analysis and applications of current and upcoming mobile communication systems. Important topics include: mobile wireless channels, PHY technologies, cellular networks, Internet-of-Things, autonomous driving, QoS measurements and evaluation, benchmarking.
The 4G and 5G mobile communication networks are key enablers for digitalization in general and, particularly,
for applications in the areas of IoT and autonomous systems (e.g. autonomous driving). We start with an analysis
of the physical (PHY) layer of current and future wireless communication systems, and compare different PHY
implementations in 4G, 5G and WiFi 6. Based on these considerations we study applications of wireless technologies
in the area of the Internet of Things (IoT) and autonomous systems and identify the potential as well as the challenges.
