Eindhoven University of Technology (https://www.tue.nl/en/
) is one of Europe's top technological universities, situated at the heart of a most innovative high-tech region of Europe- Eindhoven Brainport. Thanks to a wealth of collaborations with industry and academic institutes, our research has real-world impact.
The candidate will work at the Department of Electrical Engineering (https://www.tue.nl/en/university/departments/electrical-engineering/
). Within the Department of Electrical Engineering at TU/e, research and education is done in the areas of Telecommunication, Signal processing, and energy transfer. The Interfaculty Institute for Photonic Integration (IPI) performs research in the area of materials, photonic integration and systems for telecommunications, sensing and radar, quantum photonics, 5G photonics and Terahertz systems. In close collaboration with the Photonic Integration Technology Center (PITC) we are building a truly end-to-end test-bed for 5G vertical applications and a large number of business cases ranging from automated driving to e-health and industry4.0. Research Challenges in 5GMOBIX
The project 5G-MOBIX aims at executing CCAM trials along x-border and urban corridors using 5G core technological innovations to qualify the 5G infrastructure and evaluate its benefits in the CCAM context as well as defining deployment scenarios and identifying and responding to standardisation and spectrum gaps.
5G-MOBIX will evaluate several CCAM use cases, advanced thanks to 5G next generation of Mobile Networks. Among the possible scenarios to be evaluated with the 5G technologies, 5G-MOBIX has raised the potential benefit of 5G with low reliable latency communication, enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine type communication and network slicing.
Several automated mobility use cases are potential candidates to benefit and even more be enabled by the advanced features and performance of the 5G technologies, as for instance, but limited to: cooperative overtake, highway lane merging, truck platooning, valet parking, urban environment driving, road user detection, vehicle remote control, see through, HD map update, media & entertainment.The candidate
We are looking therefore for a strong post-doctoral researcher or industrial applied research engineer to take up these challenges related to:
- Implementation and test of (virtualized) 5G core network software
- Implementation and test of 5G radio protocol stack and signalling
- Implementation of radio stack on OBU (car UE) and integration with in-car autonomous driving systems
- Interfacing between all software and signal processing elements of end-to-end system
