CARMEN project

The GTAS group participates in CARMEN project ("Coding and Signal Processing for Emerging Wireless Communication and Sensor Networks", TEC2016-75067-C4-4-R), a project funded by The Ministerio de Economia y Competitividad (Gobierno de España).

CARMEN is a three-year (2017-2019) research project that integrates researchers from 4 different spanish universities: Universidade A Coruña, Universidad de Cantabria, Tecnum (Universidad de Navarra) and Universidad Politecnica de Cataluña. CARMEN addresses two major trends in current wireless networks: radio interfaces with unprecedented high data rates and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). CARMEN aims at developing advanced coding (joint source channel coding, polar coding, correlated information, network coding) and signal processing (unconventional MIMO transceiver architectures, improper signaling schemes for interference-limited scenarios, multiuser architectures for non-coherent transmissions, and distributed signal and information processing over networks and graphs) techniques for emerging wireless communication and sensor networks. CARMEN will also carry out experimental evaluation of coding and signal processing techniques by means of Over The Air (OTA) transmiss
