Debasish Ghose

PhD-candidate

Debasish Ghose at the Faculty of Engineering and Science has submitted his thesis entitled “Protocol Design and Performance Evaluation of Wake-up Radio enabled IoT Networks”, and will defend the thesis for the PhD-degree Tuesday 7 May 2019.

He has followed the PhD-programme in Engineering and Science with Specialisation in Information- and Communication Technology (ICT).

Summary of the thesis by Debasish Ghose:

Protocol Design and Performance Evaluation of Wake-up Radio enabled IoT Networks

As an emerging technology, the Internet of things (IoT) is playing a pivotal role towards the digital transformations of many societal sectors.

The cost of IoT devices is decreasing due to the rapid development of sensor technology.

Energy-consumption as a bottleneck

However, a bottleneck for massive deployment of IoT may be the ability to provide these devices with energy that will last the entire lifetime of the chipset.

In many IoT applications, devices will only transmit and receive a small amount of data rarely, i.e., a few times in a day. In general, sleeping mechanism of sensor nodes is adopted to reduce energy consumption in IoT networks. Such periodic/aperiodic sleeping is not very efficient in terms of latency and energy efficiency.

Imagine a receiver in a very low power mode that would, in a magical way, wake up just in time for the data to be received. Yes, this magic is happening with “Wake-up Radio” technology.

Wake-up Radio has been emerged to eliminate the energy wastage of IoT device.

Performance improvement

In the thesis, we mainly focused on the performance improvement of wake-up radio enabled IoT networks from data link layer perspectives.

We proposed several medium access control mechanisms, transmission protocols, relay selection schemes to improve the performance of wake-up radio enabled IoT networks.
