Project Description

This research project is an NU faculty-development research program to be held in the School of Engineering. The project will focus on novel resource allocation and user scheduling techniques for wireless energy transfer, energy beamforming and energy harvesting in joint uplink-downlink transmission for multi-user wireless powered systems while considering physical layer security aspects. In addition, the functionality of the developed techniques will be implemented in the hardware testbed. Moreover, three (3) undergraduate, one (1) MSC and one (1) Ph.D. students will be trained during the project, and one (1) postdoctoral scholar will be able to acquire management and supervision skills. Finally, the project will facilitate further development of networking circles by collaborating with Nokia Bell Labs (France), TU Dresden (Germany), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), and Manchester Metropolitan University (UK).
