Projects

In this project, we tackled the dense deployment and energy efficient operation of sensor systems in underwater and terrestrial environments.
Wireless mesh networks (WMNs) are a type of ad hoc wireless network that uses multi-hop wireless communications to provide or improve connectivity between wireless devices.
In this project, we considered the optimization of transmission power and delay in a wireless mesh networks.
