Research

Led by Dr. Djuradj Budimir the Wireless Communications Research Group (WCRG) has been operational since 1998 and during that time was submitted by the University to three Research Assessments including REF-2014. The Wireless Communications Research Group (https://www.westminster.ac.uk/research/groups-and-centres/wireless-communications-research-group) was established to investigate new lines of research which can readily be transferred to industry. We are based within the Faculty of Science and Technology. Our research on wireless communications is a recognised world leader in the advanced design of circuits and subsystems from RF through uWave/mm-Wave to Terahertz frequencies for 4G, 5G, B5G and 6G wireless communications, WLAN, UWB, wireless sensors, Internet-of-Things (IoT), M2M and biomedical applications. In addition, members of the group deal with the development of selected aspects of the underlying theory of signals and systems for a wide range of engineering applications and design, development and improvement of efficient computational intelligent algorithms for various applications in computer engineering. More specifically, it is related to intelligent analysis of data for modelling, classification and control. The group has produced numerous peer-reviewed papers in journals such as IEEE Transactions and other prestigious journals and conferences. The group has very comprehensive facilities including the latest RF, microwave and mm-wave wireless communication test and measurement equipment. The group is involved into an extensive national and international collaboration. The activities are sponsored by EPSRC, EU, the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, and the Nuffield Foundation.
