In TeamUp5G we believe that motivation from involvement and engagement is key to learning. We want to place creative young researchers in front of the real world, enabling them to work on real-life technical issues, working across multiple European countries and organizations, presenting at workshops in front of industrial users/stakeholders, and becoming involved in standardization activities. We also want to provide them with communications skills, the ability to work in groups and an understanding of integrity and ethics in research. The project focus is ultra-dense small cell systems as an important component in future heterogeneous 5G networks (commercial deployment in 2020) and beyond. TeamUp5G considers aspects such as enhanced multi-antenna techniques, efficient backhaul/fronthaul, massive MIMO, communications in the millimetre-wave bands and visible light communications, as well as spectrum sharing and aggregation to enhance system capacity, decrease delay and energy consumption, and improve overall service quality. The research team of 15 young researches supervised by committed experts from the industry and academia will advance the state of the art with the design of novel physical/link/medium access control algorithms and protocols to enhance capacity and user satisfaction, new dynamic spectrum management, opportunistic optimisation of radio resources and cognitive radio techniques, together with self-organization capabilities, with different levels of collaboration, and techniques and methodologies to save energy. Both mobile broadband and internet of things applications and traffic will be harmonised. The new developed techniques will be analysed by simulation and prototyping and some show-cases (immersive video, drones) will be developed to illustrate the novelty and applicability of our ideas. The consortium will train the young researchers on how to contribute and will actively participate in the activities of standardization bodies.
This project aims at building a satellite ground station at the Ku band that can be remotely controlled and accessed through a dedicated server to all authorized users using a simple web browser connected to the internet anywhere in the world. Authorized users can request and collect data (telemetry, images, etc) from its database for post-processing. This equipment can be used for a great variety of experiments not previously possible at this location and can be an important factor to increase the cooperation amongst national and international researchers and institutions, namely with ESA. Its location and features are unique and can be of strategic importance for the development of national research and industry in this field.
BIM is vigorously changing all phases of buildings’ life cycle, from strategic planning, design, construction, operation and decommission. Building operation, which is the longest and most significant phase, has it’s own nuances. Professional roles are different from other phases since architects and civil engineers are often replaced by managers and MEP (Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) professionals, focus is on maintenance, cost reduction and profitability and user comfort. BIM, as a natural tool for building information storage and use, is a natural part of a Facility Management System.
We work on the development of BIM platforms for the management of large, multi-building facilities, such as education campus or hospitals, where scale, geolocalization and visual communication render traditional methods inefficient. We work with Facility Management platforms that link with and take advantage of BIM models and we employ Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies to enhance and visualize facilities’ data.
Musical Morphogenesis (2014-2017)
The interactive installation “Musical Morphogenesis” is a multidisciplinary project based on 5 main disciplines: computational biology, music, architecture, robotics, and science communication. The implementation of all components of the installation had to take into consideration the specificities of each discipline, turning this into an extremely challenging project. The main objective of “Musical Morphogenesis” was to take the visitors in a sensorial journey to explore the dynamic interactions of genes and proteins during the development of an organ. Such biological processes are highly complex, and the same set of genes can originate different organs depending on when they are activated. Taking advantage of a mathematical model that address the genetic network of the Arabidopsis thaliana flowers, a team of computational biologists, musicians, architects, engineers and science communicators joined hands to create an installation that could explore the development of flowers. The installation was composed of a robotic wood-made flower, which kinetics reflected the progression of the genetic network, and of an interface to interact with the installation. Visitors could turn on or off one or more genes, and eventually switch the network towards the formation of a different organ originating a mutant. To facilitate the comprehension of the network, each gene had a specific sound.
