Virtual laboratories on Wireless Communications and Sensor Networks

In this page you can access a virtual environment designed for familiarizing the users with advanced concepts of wireless communications and sensor networks. The lab consists of eight distinct interactive MATLAB® applications referring to:

  • Antenna positioning and loss models.
  • Effects of rician-rayleigh fading.
  • Performing real field measurements over hilly, urban and suburban areas.
  • Indoors network planning.
  • DVB-T network planning (two case studies).
  • Topology control in wireless sensor networks.
  • Routing in wireless sensor networks.

Accompanying user's manuals and indicative exercises are also provided for download freely.
