Indoor positioning and tracking systems have gained huge interest because of the many context-aware applications that have emerged lately.
The "WAVES" research group is the expertise center of the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University/imec in Belgium for physical-layer research of advanced wireless networks and localization technologies.
Indoor positioning and tracking systems have gained huge interest because of the many context-aware applications that have emerged lately. These applications are situated in domains such as healthcare, industry & warehousing, agriculture,… The innovations taking place in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT) enable us with new opportunities for indoor positioning. Promising wireless positioning technologies such as Ultra-Wideband (UWB), (unmodulated) Visible Light Positioning ((u)VLP), and Pedestrian Dead Reckoning (PDR) each have their advantages and drawbacks, with their applicability depending on the intended use case.
Important research domains in the context of indoor location tracking are:
We are looking for enthusiastic candidates to perform research in the domains above in both national and international European projects. Candidates with a Master degree in Electrical engineering, Computer engineering, and Physics engineering qualify for this research job. Experience in wireless positioning (software and/or hardware) or wireless communications is a strong plus.
We offer a pleasant work climate within a young dynamic team and the possibility of obtaining a PhD.
