The Networking, Communication and Signal Processing research domain focuses on all aspects of networking, communications, and signal processing. The current topics of interest are: Computer networks, Network security, Wireless communication, Signal processing, Medical signal processing, Computer vision, Control of unmanned systems using image processing and computer vision.
NCL's main focus of research areas are Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols for broadband wireless network, IoT (in particular, Energy saving of 4G-A, 5G, QoS), Cognitive Radio, Transport Layer Security, SDN in Access Network. This Lab has received R&D projects from Hewlett Packard, Motorola Research, Intel, Microsoft, Tata Power SED, Honeywell, Nokia and Cognizant. It has also received multiple R&D project from Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY), Govt. of India. For detail please click on NCL name above.
In this lab the projects are sponsored by HP and Nokia. The R&D focus on video and audio streaming including handheld devices, as also Video Media Platform, Charging , Service Delivery in IMS using Application Servers, XDMS, HSS and Presence servers. Moreover, this lab addresses issues related to quality of service modeling in IMS architecture with respect to differential traffic.
The Multimodal Perception lab focuses on human-centered sensing and multimodal signal processing methods to observe, measure, and model human behavior. Theae methods are used in applications that facilitate behavioral training, and social media analysis; and enable human-robot interactions (HRI). The focus is mainly on vision and audio modalities. Probabilistic graphical models from the backbone of the underlying formalism.
Machine to machine (M2M) communication is going to be one of the major areas of R&D in networking and communication specialization. M2M faces multiple challenges and some of the major issues related to efficient communication between sensors, protocols, power saving in sensor, etc. In IIITB we have a WSN lab which supports multiple R&D projects on sensor networks. This lab has been sponsored by Govt. of Karnataka for development in embedded systems.
