  • Title
    • ICONN
  • Summary
    • ICONN is a unique European Industrial Doctorate initiative to meet the current and future demand for highly skilled offshore wind and wave energy engineers by developing and advancing European capacity in the design, development and performance optimisation for Offshore Wind and Wave Energy installations. The initiative is strongly shaped by active participation from industries, and will develop and enhance European capacity in the offshore renewable energy area at a critical juncture in time when Europe strives to occupy a lead market position globally in this sector. The ICONN EID will i) provide state-of-the art training to Early Stage Researchers jointly with industries in the scientific and engineering disciplines of power take-off (PTO) and structural control, wave mechanics and hydrodynamics, CFD, sensing and system identification; ii) advance expertise, and research capacity, in the techno-economic-environmental factors that impact on the reliability and operational efficiency of offshore renewable energy installations; iii) instil business, management, entrepreneurship and innovation skills pertaining to offshore wind and combined wind-wave energy sector to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation; iv) promote clearly defined scientific dissemination, public outreach and commercialisation/IP agendas. The three scientific work packages, which scaffold the individual research activities, progress from addressing specific challenges and capability deficiencies that impede the effective and efficient deployment of offshore wind and wave infrastructures (floating systems and optimisation of power take-off (PTO) ) through to activities that seek to create, and innovate in, new control algorithms and in operational efficiency domain (fatigue control, new algorithms for control of PTO).

  • Title
    • TinyTorrents - An efficient, scalable, robust, co-operative infrastructure providing global accessibility to local wireless sensornet information
  • Summary
    • Wireless sensor functionality is predominantly constrained by sensor size and battery life considerations. Existing sensornet frameworks e.g. Deluge, are designed for specific purposes, such as sensor code update. TinyTorrents proposes a unique architectural platform which makes sensor data promptly, transparently and globally available using trackerless, co-operative Peer to Peer concepts. A key element of TinyTorrents will be the modelling and integration of wireless Quality of Service Active Queue Management functionality together with accurate power consumption and transmission characterisation. Sensors will be able to request prioritisation for "important" data subject to prevailing framework constraints.

  • Title
    • Wireless Active Queue Management: A Robust, Scalable Approach using Control Theory.
  • Summary
    • Active Queue Management (AQM) techniques have been successfully incorporated into existing Internet routers to signal dynamically congestion to sources on fixed networks. The increasing proliferation of mobile devices has created a growing awareness of the need for wireless AQM schemes. However, wireless links have intrinsic characteristics that invalidate the underlying assumptions of fixed infrastructure AQM. This project proposes to advance the theoretical understanding of the fundamental issues involved in wireless AQM. This knowledge will then be used to design and implement new, highly efficient Active Queue Management schemes for the wireless environment.
