The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new revolution of future networks that connect all objects (“things”) ranging from watches, keys, appliances, cars, to homes and buildings. IoT is likely to have a staggering impact on our daily lives as it evolves to become an essential part of many systems such as smart grid, intelligent transport, e-health, smart logistics and smart homes. Like the history of human evolution, only when self-intelligence is embedded into every individual object, supported by a complex communication infrastructure, can these “things” begin to “think”, “feel”, and “talk” to each other and communicate with humans, a true “Smart Planet” can then become a reality. Achieving this long-term vision will require a large and sustained programme of research and development over the coming years/decades.
The IoE2 Lab is a multi-disciplinary research laboratory particularly focusing on developing enabling technologies and making scientific breakthroughs for next generation internet of things and future (5G) communication networks. The research topics cover from ultra-low-power electronic circuits for enabling autonomous intelligent sensor nodes to ubiquitous communication technologies for power efficient and smart network infrastructures as well as complex system optimization algorithms for effective management and control of billions of smart “things”. Advanced signal processing, energy harvesting, microwave and optical device characterisation and complex modelling of bio sensors are also included. The lab is supported by various funding agencies and industry partners.

Professor Anding Zhu received an Investigator Award (worth 900,000 Euros) from Science Foundation Ireland. This award is to fund research on digitally linearized high efficiency millimetre-wave power amplifiers to enable super high speed wireless data transmission with minimum energy consumption while at the meantime maintaining high quality of data services in next generation (5G and beyond) wireless communications. The project will run for four years from 2018 to 2022.
PhD positions are available.
