  • - Laboratory Real-Time Systems.
  • - Tele-education lab.

In the past five years the group has participated in 12 European projects, 18 national and 5 business collaboration projects. He has published over 50 articles in journals, 8 publications in books and over 100 papers in conference.

En temas relacionados con esta propuesta, el grupo lleva 10 años investigando en la línea de computación ubicua en temas relacionados con continuidad de servicio, descubrimiento y composición de servicios, localización, seguridad, identidad y confianza en redes móviles e inalámbrica.

El grupo participa además actualmente en diversos proyectos de convocatorias nacionales relacionados con ésta temática, como CENIT (proyecto España Virtual, relacionado con tecnologías de localización) y Plan Nacional de I+D+i  (proyecto CONSEQUENCE, relacionado con femtoceldas móviles), así como en un contrato con Telefónica I+D desde 2007 para investigaciones en diversas tecnologías relacionadas con la tarjeta SIM del móvil.

En el proyecto MONOLOC, el objetivo del grupo es investigar en aplicar las técnicas de localización que ha estado investigando en los proyectos anteriores en el ámbito de las redes UMTS, al caso de entornos de femtoceldas y de redes autogestionadas, para ofrecer localización en interiores a teléfonos móviles. También aplicará técnicas de predicción de localización a partir de conocimiento obtenido de comportamientos pasados.

On issues related to this proposal, the group has spent 10 years researching the line of ubiquitous computing on issues related to continuity of service discovery and service composition, positioning, security, identity and trust in mobile and wireless networks.

The group also participated in various projects currently national calls related to this subject, as CENIT (Spain Virtual Project, related to location technologies) and Plan Nacional de I + D + i (Consequence project, related to mobile femtocells) and has a contract with Telefónica I + D since 2007 for research on various technologies related to mobile phone SIM cards.

In the Monoloc project, the research group's goal is to apply the localization techniques that have been investigated in previous projects in the field of UMTS networks, the case for femtocells environments and self-managed networks to provide indoor location for mobile phones. Also it will apply localization prediction techniques from knowledge gained from past user behavior.

INNOVATI will also provide knowledge and experience gained in European initiatives such as Smart Urban Spaces (SUS) on issues of digital services for public administrations, security and confidence, content management and usability and accessibility, to ensure the Thus the solution is fully oriented and tailored to user needs.

- Role in Project:

  • - Development Platform for  QoS and Network Management Agent.
  • - Mobile Application Development.
  • - Platform Business exploitation and Market Analysis

The Microwave and Radar Group (GMR), is integrated into the Department of Signals, Systems and Radio of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. This research group has extensive experience in the design, simulation, and circuit development of high frequency subsystems and systems. Similarly, the GMR have open lines of research: a) analysis, simulation, evaluation and specification of wireless communication systems, mobile phones and radar. b) Development of adaptive antenna systems for various applications: mobile communications, GPS receivers and anti-jamming radio links, d) Measures of propagation and planning and deployment of radio systems in the bands of wireless communications (WiFi, WiMAX) and LMDS systems in 28GHz. to 40GHz bands. e) Design of signaling and communications subsystems for transport applications.

-Role in Project:

The lines of work of the Research Group of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) in the project Monoloc are closely related to the provision of positioning services on 3G networks or LTE femtocells. The UPM will focus its efforts on providing positioning services not only in conventional networks, but also self-configuring networks (SON).

To this end, the research group will analyze, develop and implement radio propagation models suitable for indoor environments femtocell network deployment, whether or not self-configurable.

On one hand, these models will be implemented in a radio propagation simulator indoor propagation. This simulator will be used in the calibration phase of the algorithm or algorithms developed in this project, in order to minimize the cost of performing the calibration phase. In collaboration with other participants, we will develop a protocol for testing, simulation and measurement campaign, to validate the propagation model implemented.

Another line of research in this project is to develop software for planning and dimensioning of femtocell networks that are geared to provide joint services for voice, data, video and localization in indoor environments, with particular attention to the requirements of the provision of such services.

The University of Malaga (UMA) is a public university with nearly 40,000 students and 2,000 teachers. Recently the University of Malaga, together with the University of Sevilla, has received the label of "International Campus of Excellence" for the joint project AndaluciaTech. One of the areas of specialization of AndaluciaTech is communications, with special emphasis on mobile communications.

The Communications Engineering Group (Grupo Ingeniería de Comunicaciones GIC), is one of the largest in UMA, with over 80 members. Its activities cover many areas: wireless communications, digital signal processing, optical communications, etc.. The group has strong ties with leading ICT companies of the Technologic Park of Andalucia (PTA), both through collaborative projects and the training of current and future employees of those companies. Within the GIC, the team that is dedicated to topics directly related to the project Monoloc consists of 10 people, with over 10 years experience in management and optimization of mobile communication networks: MobileNET.

Role in Project:

The research will be focused on Self-Organizing Networks (SON). Particularly self-optimization and self-healing techniques will be studied. Self-healing will face loss or degradation of service, including functions for detecting and diagnosing faults and mechanisms to mitigate such loss of service. Self-optimization will focus on auto-tuning of handover parameters for load balancing or optimizing network performance.
