About Workshop

The communications sector has witnessed a significant paradigm shift over the past several decades with respect to how wireless transceivers and algorithms are implemented for a wide range of applications. However traditional hardware based radio devices can only be modified through physical intervention. Software Defined Radio technology provides an efficient and comparatively inexpensive solution to the aforementioned problem. An SDR is a class of reconfigurable/reprogrammable radios whose physical layer characteristic can be significantly modified via software changes. Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) provides a range of software-defined radios. GNU Radio is a free software development framework that provides signal processing functions for implementing software-defined radios (SDR).

This Faculty Development Program is especially intended to provide with an in-depth technical exposure of USRP and GNU Radio and their utilities in wireless research to the faculty members of engineering colleges, research scholars in wireless communication, post-graduate students, and engineers. Further few interested undergraduate students with good academic record, who would like to further explore the latest research in current wireless systems, can also be a part of this program. The lecture session will include Cognitive Radio (CR), Spectrum Sensing techniques like Energy Detection and Improved Energy Detection, Imperfect Spectrum Sensing, Spectrum Analytics using Machine Learning and OFDM followed by three hours of respective lab session to further enhance and consolidate the understanding of the participant.
