IG08 - Research Group for Information and Communication Technologies


The Research Group for Information and Communication Technologies conducts research in four areas, i.e. wireless communications, microelectronics, network technologies and video communications.

In the field of wireless communications, the emphasis is put on modelling, analysis of operation, improvement of the existing and the development of new communication systems or their subsystems, as well as the development of models and testing of radio waves propagation in mobile networks. The following is currently being tested and developed: EM wireless energy transmission processes and systems, high-frequency energy harvesting technologies, modelling, measurement and testing of the effects of EM radiation on living organisms and electromagnetic pollution.

In line with the progress made in the field of microelectronic technology, we conduct research and development of analogue and digital processing, PLD and FPGA device programming, and design and implementation of supervisory control systems. Research group members research and develop radio frequency identification (RFID) devices with their own power supply, enhance alternative power supply methods from the surrounding area, and develop 2D and 3D sensors.

The following research is carried out in the field of network technologies: IP network infrastructure, IP service quality, and application in the area of broadband Internet access and Internet services in urban and rural areas. Special attention is paid to research into security and privacy issues in modern information and communication (wired and wireless) systems. In terms of security, the following issues are researched: modern cryptosystems and their application, methods of detection and prevention of security threats and attacks on wired and wireless networks (WLAN, ad hoc, sensor networks, IoT), security mechanisms and protocols, risk estimation and reduction, secure routing and data aggregation, and user and data privacy protection.

An important segment of research is to develop solutions to improve and evaluate video quality in various applications including Quality of Experience (QoE) when transmitting video signals to fixed and mobile networks.
