FPGA-based implementation of routing schemes in WiFi-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

  • FPGA-based implementation of routing schemes in WiFi-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
EEECS Summer Research Internships 2018

Proposed Project Title:

  • FPGA-based implementation of routing schemes in WiFi-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Principal Supervisor(s):
  • Professor Roger Woods


Project Description:

Currently, work has been undertaken in establishing a wireless network using FPGA-based Zedboard network cards and a number of experiments have been undertaken to explore the impact of configurations on data transmissions. The next stage of the work will be to implement novel routing schemes to select the path with the best link quality and then undertake experiments in the indoor office environments to evaluate performance.

This project will help the intern develop strong capabilities and gain experience in design of practical wireless systems and embedded systems.


Objectives:
  1. Study the various network routing schemes;
  2. Learn and explore FPGA-based implementation tools;
  3. Implement a basic routing network scheme in the hardware;
  4. Explore and implement an enhanced reading and implement in the Zedboard hardware;
  5. Experimentation in the indoor (office) and possibly outdoor (car park) environments.

Academic Requirements:

The candidate should have experience of using FPGA-based hardware and Wi-Fi. Ideally, the previous summer candidate.


General Information:

Each internship will last between 6-8 weeks and will pay a weekly stipend of £200.

Accommodation and travel costs are not provided under this scheme.

Start date: 11 June 2018

Duration: 8 (Weeks)

Location: Ashby building
