Digital Communication Systems & Emerging Networks
Developing efficient digital communication systems using next generation technologies to advance the future of emerging networks
Staying digitally connected is a key priority for modern industries. Every year, new innovations deliver faster and more efficient connectivity across a wide range of industries to meet consumer demands.
Our team specialises in finding ways to deliver connectivity for all. Director of the Centre for Technology Infusion, Professor Aniruddha Desai leads our research projects focusing on developing ultra-low power Internet of Things (IoT) wireless devices with sustainable battery endurance that deliver efficient physical and radio frequency front-end communications.
Every project in our program focuses on three main objectives: delivering high throughput, low latency and energy efficient communications.
Our existing partnerships and collaborative projects serve a variety of industries including: agriculture, med-tech, smart cities, industrial automation, local government services, service management industry, and supply chains.
We help our partners maximise efficiency in communication by having effective transmission and reception of data between devices, avoiding wireless disruptions and allowing for information to seamlessly flow through a wide range of systems. Having resilient connections by reducing the amount of energy and time used to re-send information between devices is a key focus of our research.

About - How to reduce food waste across the supply chain is one of the biggest issues currently faced by food producers and processors, with nearly one third of food wasted across the global supply chain.
Our team is developing a low-cost and ultra-low power microchip device which will collect data such as temperature, humidity, various gases, light, shock and acceleration from the surrounding environment. The goal is to attach these devices to the physical food packaging to analyse conditions throughout the supply chain (ie farm gate, warehouse, shop front).
The condition of the food in the container is continuously monitored using artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms, with this data relayed to the customer in real time. The microchip can operate independently, is reusable by re-attaching to different containers and runs on license free radio frequencies.
We expect the results of this project to help many companies reduce food waste in their supply chains by giving them the ability to monitoring condition through a low cost, low impact device.
