Paper accepted at 14th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Systems (IEEE MASS 2017)

Paper details: Sascha Jungen, Matteo Ceriotti, Richard Figura, Pedro José Marrón: Situated Wireless Networks Optimization through Model-based Relocation of Nodes Abstract: The design and deployment of networked embedded systems is challenging. In particular, the environment in which the system operates has a severe impact on the final performance. Existing tools […]

Paper accepted at the 26th International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks (ICCCN 2017)

Paper Details: Hugues Smeets, Matteo Ceriotti, Eduardo Ferrera, Pedro José Marrón: Replacing Free-Ranging Robots with Alternative Mobile Nodes Abstract: A wide range of mobile devices, e.g., wireless sensor nodes, RFID tags and smartphones, gradually coalesces into the Internet of Things (IoT). Debugging and optimizing such systems is challenging and necessary […]

Paper accepted at the 8th International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN 2017)

Paper details Ngewi Fet, Marcus Handte und Pedro José Marrón: Autonomous Signal Source Displacement Detection and Recalibration of Fingerprinting-based Indoor Localization Systems Abstract: Fingerprinting-based indoor localization systems rely on stable signal distribution characteristics of fixed signal sources for location estimation. However, indoor environments are not static and changes in the […]

Journal accepted in Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS)

Abstract: Multi-robot conflict resolution is a challenging problem, especially in dense environments where many robots must operate safely in a confined space. Centralized solutions do not scale well with the number of robots in dynamic scenarios: a centralized communication can cause bottlenecks and may not be robust enough when channels […]

Paper accepted for publication in Journal of Systems Architecture (Elsevier-JSA).

Paper Details:  Richard Figura, Chia-Yen Shih, Matteo Ceriotti, Songwei Fu, Falk Brockmann, Héctor Nebot, Francisco Alarcón, Andrea Kropp, Konstantin Kondak, Marc Schwarzbach, Antidio Viguria Jiménez, Margarita Mulero-Pázmány, Gianluca Dini, Jesús Capitán, Pedro José Marrón,  Abstract:  To address the heterogeneity and scalability issues of simulating Cooperating Objects (COs) systems, we propose […]

Best Paper Award at WSN 2016

Abstract: Radio signals can be used to detect the presence of a person (target) in an environment by analysing the fluctuations in the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI). The velocity of the target can be estimated by examining the sequence of disturbances in consecutive radio links over a period of […]

Dr. Jesús Capitán from the University of Seville visits NES

Dr. Jesús Capitán focuses his research on robotics and artificial intelligence, more concretely, on data fusion and decision-making for multi-robot systems. He has been collaborating with NES to promote different activities in the NES Robotics Lab. First, he has helped establishing our indoor testbed for localizing and navigating drones in […]
