NCFU researchers are focusing on wireless sensor networks. Internet of Things is a new trend in technological objects management.
This is a term that implies the top advanced developments in telemetry and integration of various control systems, while its main advantage is a high degree of self-organization and management flexibility. Wireless sensor networks consist of smart sensors and aggregators that make a single network of various configurations – Wi-Fi, ZigBee, Bluetooth, UWB, etc.
The reliability of the networks in question depends on power supply, and failure in it will disturb the network integrity and distort the signal thus affecting the data transfer.
– We are studying energy process in sensor nodes, as well as we focus on optimizing the operation modes under limited resources, – Vladimir Samoylenko (Associate Professor, Department for Oil and Gas Wells Construction) noted. – The outcomes of our research can be applied in the oil and gas industry – for oil and gas production online monitoring, for example, as well as to ensure production safety.
The project is currently carried out by a team of researchers where Prof. Vladimir Fedorenko is the head. The team has already published 22 research items and registered 2 invention patents as well as 4 software packages.
As part of the research, NCFU stays in touch with Russian and foreign partners, including colleagues from the research centers of the Technical University of Dresden (5G Germany laboratory, Institute of Communication Technology) and the Aegean University of Turkey.
