Recent developments in technological capabilities have made microwave sensing affordable for a mass market
Recent developments in technological capabilities have made microwave sensing affordable for a mass market. In addition to its application in meteorological institutes and other professional users, microwave sensing can be found in collision-avoidance radar systems in cars and in food control.
The system-design paradigm has shifted from complex, stand-alone systems to distributed systems of wirelessly connected low-functionality sensors. It has also shifted from mono-functional wireless systems (e.g. communications, radar and navigation) to multifunctional ones...
In our research projects, we collaborate closely with signal-processing specialists and RF technology groups. We apply the research in area surveillance, crowd monitoring, landmine detection, concealed-weapon detection, weather prediction and civil engineering (subsurface sensing).
Students enrolled in the Signals and System group have access to state-of-the-art experimental research facilities, including electromagnetic laboratories and a multi-media signal laboratory, as well as software-defined and ultra-wideband radar systems located in Delft and Cabauw.
Furthermore, Google, Thales, Bosch, KPN, Bang & Olufsen and other companies are quite interested in hosting students from the Signals and Systems track for internships or thesis work. Due to a large number of research projects, we are constantly looking for strong PhD candidates.
