Highlights

  • As part of activities in the FP7 CREW project the Department of Communication Systems at JSI installed two VESNA SNE-ESTHER devices in London. SNE-ESHTER is a radio receiver for the UHF band designed at JSI based on the VESNA sensor platform. Installed devices will be used for advanced spectrum sensing, contributing to the large scale Ofcom TV White Spaces pilot. One device was installed on the roof of a building in the King's College London Strand campus and the other on the roof of Queen Mary University London. Long term measurements will be used to support the experimentation with advanced, so called cognitive radio devices, as secondary users in currently unused parts of the spectrum.

 

 

 

  • The CREW project entered a continuous open access phase. You can test your cognitive radio networking solution on 5 differrent testbed islands and advanced radio components, including our LOG-a-TEC testbed and the VESNA sensor network platform.

 

  • In cooperation with Adria Mobil we are developing a motorhome for the future. Adria Moving Lab is equipped with intelligent sensors that allow the vehicle to adapt to its user. This way we can optimize the use of consumables like fuel and water and exploit renewable sources of energy like solar power. The prototype has been unveiled at the Institute Jožef Stefan open days in April 2014.

 

 

  • The CFP for the Web of Things workshop is out. Consider submitting a paper.

 

 

 

  • The CREW OC2 project CREW-TV (Feb. 1 2013 - March 31 2014) focuses on the experimental coexistence in TV bands and will involve the LOG-a-TEC testbed where also the final demonstration will be given. 

 

  • Tomaž talks about the CREW training days on his blog.

 

  • The CREW OC2 project CREW-TV will involve the LOG-a-TEC testbed. 

 

 

  • The Absolute project has had the kick-off meeting in October 2012.

 

 

 

  • Join us at the CREW training days! Program available here.

 

  • The CREW repository containing information such as full experiment descriptions, traces, background environments, processing script and performance metrics and benchmarking scores is now available here.

 

 

  • The CREW plenary meeting took place in June 18-21, 2012 in Ljubljana. During the meeting our partners were invited to see the LOG-a-TEC testbed and perform the first CR tests there. Stay tuned for more details!

 

  • The slides from the Experimental validation of cognitive radio/cognitive networking solutions workshop at FIA are now available. You can see what the LOG-a-TEC test site will offer for CREW call 2.

 

  • We had a demo about the JSI CREW test sites at the FIRE hands-on event at FIA in Aalborg. Check the poster here.

 

  • Preparing for the next outdoor deployment, check how Tomaž is trying to solve the overheating problem.

 

  • Check our github to see what we've opened up.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Our brand new VESNA sensor node is ready! Read more about it in the hardware section or on Tomaž' blog.

 

 

 

  • We've just deployed yet another set sensors for monitoring a Slovenian kayak centre in Solkan! 

 

  • We've just deployed yet another set sensors for monitoring a Slovenian sports fishing location in Ponikve! See the demo description here.

 

  • Carolina Fortuna and Marko Grobelnik presented the tutorial "The Web of Things" at the 20th International WWW conference in Hyderabad, India. The feedback (including tweets) was very positive and we plan to improve this tutorial and present it at further events. The abstract and slides of WWW WoT tutorial are available online.

 

  • We are constantly open for talented, open minded and hard working undergraduate students, interns and MSc/PhD candidates. Read more.

 

  • Our colleague Miha Smolnikar maintains a blog with relevant CFPs. You can find it here.

Marko Pesko, Miha Smolnikar, Matevz Vucnik, Tomaz Javornik, Milica Pejanovic-Djurisic and Mihael Mohorcic published a paper titled "Smartphone with augmented gateway functionality as opportunistic WSN gateway device" in Wireless Personal Communications journal. They described how a Samsung phone connected via Bluetooth to a VESNA sensor node can act as a gateway to a wireless sensor network.

Chapter "Low-cost testbed development and its applications in cognitive radio prototyping" written by our colleagues Tomaž Šolc, Carolina Fortuna and Mihael Mohorcic has been published by Springer in the book  "Cognitive Radio and Networking for Heterogeneous Wireless Networks" from the Recent Advances and Visions for the Future series.

Jernej and Klemen talked with Nickola Naous about our new VESNA sensor node design. Read about The engineers behind the WSN Vesna on the IoTMonkey blog.

Our paper "Trends in the development of communication networks: Cognitive networks" is the 10th among the 25th most cited articles published since 2009, extracted from Scopus, see all on the Elsevier web site.

Check the "Cognitive radio experimentation with VESNA platform" presentation by Miha Smolnikar at the School on Applications of Open Spectrum and White Spaces Technologies.

We are looking for a C programmers that would join the team developing the VESNA platform. Candidates that have previous experience with electronic circuit design, operating systems or open source projects will have priority.

 

We are constantly open for talented, open minded and hard working undergraduate students, interns and MSc/PhD candidates. Read more.
