Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is one of Europe’s top technological universities, in the heart of one of Europe’s largest hightech innovation ecosystems - the Eindhoven Brainport region. Research at TU/e is characterized by a combination of academic excellence and a strong real-world impact. This impact is often obtained via close collaboration with hightech industries.
TUe campus 5G and QKD test and evaluation site
At the TUe campus we are developing a 5G testbed offering attractive open environment for pilot tests as well as evaluations for applications and scenarios that require the new stringent
5G key performance indicators (KPIs) and data security to be met, like, e.g., robot-to-robot communication, fronthaul to robot, robot-to-drone, broadcasting, city security,
3D-communications, 5G automated vehicle driving, to name but a few. Several 5G Projects from several groups at TUe such as 5G PPP blueSPACE, Metro-haul, 5G MOBIX, 5G PHOS, 5G STEP FWD, BRAINE and others are cross-collaborating in setting up the 5G test-environment.
Research Challenges in BRAINE
Edge computing offers many technical advantages, e.g., reduced latency, secure decentralized processing and storage, scalability at lower complexity, versatility to adapt the changes in resources and applications, and increased reliability. Edge computing can dramatically boost services and applications by supporting artificial intelligence (AI) natively, instead of relying on the cloud. Edge computing supporting AI is the only technology that will enable many of the
long-awaited game changers: Industry4.0 and smart manufacturing, 5G, IoT, self-driving vehicles, remote robotics for healthcare, and machine vision among others. The ECSEL BRAINE project’s overall aim is to boost the development of the Edge framework focusing on energy efficient hardware and AI empowered software, capable of processing Big Data at the Edge, supporting security, data privacy, and sovereignty.
We are looking therefore for a strong (PhD) researcher or industrial applied research engineer to take up these challenges related to:
The candidate for this position will contribute to the TU/e efforts in stablishing the collaboration liaisons with the BRAINE consortium but also with other projects such as 5G MOBIX, blueSPACE partners and other researchers in the project. The candidates will contribute to the related project reporting, scientific publication and dissemination activities and preparation of proposal for grant to national and European projects. The candidate is expected to interact with TUe teams in efforts of stablishing and operating the common activities in the Eindhoven 5G and QKD test-beds.
