1) 'Development of Fuzzy Logic Based Improved Schemes for Wireless Sensor Networks', Dr. Ashutosh Kumar Singh, Awarded in March 2014. Currently, he is working as Assistant Professor at IIIT Allahabad, UP, India.
Fuzzy logic based schemes were developed for clustering and other important tasks of WSN. The performance of these schemes was compared with other alternative approaches. Further, the applications of WSNs with movable sink were explored. The fuzzy logic-based schemes with various plausible movements for such type of WSNs were developed and their performance analysis was done.
2) 'Implementation of Network Coding Schemes for Efficient Data Streaming over D2D assisted Cellular Network', Dr. Purnendu Shekhar Pandey, Awarded in Aug 2018. Currently, he is working as Assistant Professor at BML Munjal University, Gurgaon, Haryana, India.
We have developed schemes for exploited the network coding and Device-to-Device (D2D) Communication with the aim of reducing the cellular network traffic for data streaming applications which involve delivering exactly same data (e.g. television, news, sports, etc. applications) to several spatially closely located mobile stations (MSs). NS-3 Simulator and Experimental Set up (Android studio and Motorola mobiles) was used for performance analysis and validation.
3) 'Performance Evaluation and Optimization of Cellular Two-Way Relay Networks with Spatial Diversity', Dr. Mahendra Shukla, (Dr. Suneel Yadav is another Supervisor): PDF at Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Saskatchewan, CANADA.
The aim of this research is to evaluate and optimize the performance of two- way AF relay in the cellular context under various fading channels. With this, we will analyze several performances measures such as outage probability, symbol error rate, and ergodic sum-rate. In addition, we will optimize the system performance by optimizing several factors such as power allocation, relay location, joint power allocation, and traffic asymmetric parameter. The physical layer security has also been briefly explored.
4) 'Multirate Digital Signal Processing Systems', Mr. Abhishek Kumar, Ongoing.
The fundamental research on improving the performance of multirate systems has been undertaken. The scope of the research includes an illustration of multirate systems application for improving Cognitive radio technology. It involves reliable data transmission over dynamically available spectrum bands of different bandwidths. It requires spurious transient free rate conversion filters which should have lower computational complexity too. Development of a novel rate conversion filter which should meet the aforesaid requirements of cognitive radio is the primary aim of this research work. Its scope includes the exploration of spectrum blind sampling and other relevant techniques which contribute to improving the overall performance of the cognitive radio technology. The outcome of this research can enhance the commercial viability of cognitive radio technology.
This research aims to contribute to improve the Synthetic Aperture Radar Polarimetry technology and to explore new applications wherein this technology can be used for gaining some useful information.
6) 'Designing the Physical and MAC layer protocols for multi-antenna wireless sensor nodes' Ms. Preeti Kharwar, ongoing. (Dr. Suneel Yadav is another Supervisor)
Multi-antenna technology under the constraints of wireless sensor networks is under investigation. We aim to design optimized Physical and MAC layer protocols accordingly.
