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 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) 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 and others are cross-collaborating in setting up the 5G test-environment.
Research Challenges in 5GMOBIX
The project 5G-MOBIX aims at executing CCAM trials along x-border and urban corridors using 5G core technological innovations to qualify the 5G infrastructure and evaluate its benefits in the CCAM context as well as defining deployment scenarios and identifying and responding to standardisation and spectrum gaps.
5G-MOBIX will evaluate several CCAM use cases, advanced thanks to 5G next generation of Mobile Networks. Among the possible scenarios to be evaluated with the 5G technologies, 5G-MOBIX has raised the potential benefit of 5G with low reliable latency communication, enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine type communication and network slicing.
Several automated mobility use cases are potential candidates to benefit and even more be enabled by the advanced features and performance of the 5G technologies, as for instance, but limited to: cooperative overtake, highway lane merging, truck platooning, valet parking, urban environment driving, road user detection, vehicle remote control, see through, HD map update, media & entertainment.
We are looking therefore for a strong post-doctoral researcher or industrial applied research engineer to take up these challenges related to:
- Implementation and test of (virtualized) 5G core network software
- Implementation and test of 5G radio protocol stack and signalling
- Implementation of radio stack on OBU (car UE) and integration with in-car autonomous driving systems
- Interfacing between all software and signal processing elements of end-to-end system
