Rescue Objectives

Future wireless networks will most likely be heterogeneous and dense, a structure which can be exploited if communication technology is constructed on the appropriate information theoretical basis that incorporate potentially lossy communications links. RESCUE wants to establish this basis and develop the integrated concept “links on the fly” which encompasses the key technologies:

  1. Distributed joint source/channel coding in lossy wireless networks
  2. Modern signal processing and coding/decoding algorithms
  3. Exploitation of multi-path information transfer in wireless mesh networks
  4. Distributed and centralized MAC/network protocols for channel access, and routing
  5. Cross-layer design for interference management and error control
  6. In order to achieve the main following objectives:

  7. Successful and robust information transfer through multi-path networks that are constructed from lossy point-to-point (P2P) links
  8. Beyond P2P Shannon limit and close to the network limits of energy and spectrum efficiencies
  9. Adaptability of information quality to the specific quality of service (QoS) requirements of applications and devices for higher spectrum and energy efficiency
  10. The integration of diverse communication infrastructure such as base stations, relays, satellites, and terminals for network robustness and fast provision of communication services

In RESCUE we apply our solutions specifically to the public safety and V2V wireless networks.
