Professor Al-Naffouri's research interests lie in the areas of adaptive, sparse and statistical signal processing and their applications. These applications include communications, ultrawideband and ultrasound-based localization and tracking. His research also extends to the design and analysis of wireless networks.
The Internet of things (IoT) advancement relies on connecting a huge number of sensors that are inexpensive, simple structured and self-powered.
By exploiting large antenna arrays, massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems can greatly increase spectral and energy efficiency over traditional MIMO systems.
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), including GPS, GLONASS, Galileo or BeiDou, are used in many applications, most notably tracking the position and attitude (or orientation) of a vehicle or any moving platform.
