George Tsoulos has been involved in pioneering European collaborative R&D projects, like RACE TSUNAMI, and ACTS TSUNAMI, SUNBEAM on smart antennas in the 90’s, and more recently, Horizon 2020 BIMERR, Synergies and COREnect, on building energy renovation with wireless sensor networks, open standards wireless IoT for the SYNERGIES Data Space and the European 6G strategy, respectively.
He is director of the Wireless and Mobile Communications Lab (WMCLab) of the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications (http://wmclab.uop.gr). WMCLab offers research excellence and experience in the areas of wireless communication systems, with emphasis on modern technologies and in particular EMF and wireless communication system measurements, as well as multi-protocol Wireless Sensor Networks.
WMCLab’s latest cutting edge existing infrastructure includes:
EMF Observatory for modern wireless communication systems (funded by the national strategic reference framework for the Peloponnese Region): The EMF Observatory studies and measures exposure, control and awareness (a key sustainable development goal from the 6G smart networks and services (6GSNS) Joint Undertaking) from wireless networks, 5G in particular. In this context, a combination of measurements are carried out in different areas of the Peloponnese Region with state of the art equipment that includes: two UAVs (up to 25kg fully equipped with autonomous navigation capabilities), two portable NARDA frequency selective field strength analyzers, two fixed NARDA broadband and frequency selective stations, a PCTEL IBFlex Scanner, a complete wireless network testing suite from Enhancell with eight testmobiles.
OpenHAB IoT Testbed that supports multiple wireless interfaces (z-Wave, ZigBee, WiFi, 4G-LTE, IR) and sensors (e.g. motion, temperature, luminance, humidity, vibration, UV, energy) with the open architecture of the openHAB platform.
UoP is a multidisciplinary, regional, multi-campus university that comprises 9 Schools and 22 Departments. Established in 2000, developed in 6 cities in the Peloponnese Region. It offers studies in all cycles of learning: undergraduate, postgraduate, and Doctoral as well as Life Long Learning with more than 20.000 students.
The Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, Faculty of Economics and Technology, University of Peloponnese resulted from the merging of Computer Science and Technology and Telecommunications Science and Technology departments (founded in 2002). It offers a modern undergraduate curriculum, covering cutting-edge issues in computing and telecommunications.
The Wireless and Mobile Communications research group exists since 2002 in the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the University of Peloponnese. It currently consists of ten (10) faculty and research members that demonstrate research excellence since the early 90’s in the areas wireless communication systems and measurements.
