Student project: Ultrawideband Direction Finding using Multipath Assistance

Research & development - Eindhoven | More than two weeks ago

In this MSC thesis project, UWB suitable wireless signal processing algorithms for direction finding (angle-of-arrival) will be studied, and the one with the best trade-offs will be selected for implementation

Student project: Ultrawideband Direction Finding using Multipath Assistance

What you will do

  • Literature survey on the proposed signal processing algorithms to exploit multipath propagation for direction finding for UWB systems.
  • Simulation in Matlab/Python of the accuracy and precision of direction finding of the selected algorithm.
  • Measurement with the algorithm running on an UWB hardware platform, using the motion capturing system as a ground truth reference.
  • Thesis writing and technical documentation.

What we do for you

This MSc thesis project is in cooperation with imec-NL. In imec-NL you will be working on cutting-edge research on a topic that is very relevant to both academic research and industrial applications. To help you in this journey, imec-NL offers a flexible environment where you can be the leader of your own research while at the same time have support of experts from signal processing and systems design to complete your tasks. As part of IoT team in IMEC-Netherlands you will have opportunities to learn from the some of the best minds in signal processing as well as other research domains.

Who you are

  • You are a Master student in Computer Science, Embedded Systems, Electrical Engineering or a related field.
  • You are available for a period of 6 to 9 months.
  • Prior experience and affinity with wireless signal processing.
  • Prior experience with Matlab/Python.
  • Entitled to do an internship in the Netherlands, Eindhoven.
  • Motivated student eager to work independently and expand knowledge in the field.
  • Good written and verbal English skills.
