Thesis type RESEARCH THESIS

Description This thesis is about the use of wireless techniques based on IEEE 802.11 standard (and newest ones) in order to support industrial real-time communications. Indeed, there is a strong interest in industry in the use of wireless devices for the communication between controllers and actuator devices (e.g., industrial robots). A techniques to increase transmission determinism and dependability is to transmit a duplicated frame on more than one channel. This technique, in order to improve performance, requires some modification to the IEEE 802.11 protocol. The purpose of this thesis is the modification of the models of a network simulator (NS3) in order to compare different techniques based on redundancy with respect to classical models. Eventually, a prototypical implementation may be obtained using a Linux based operating system. Possibility of using machine learning techniques in order to predict the channel to use for transmissions. For other informations and theses proposals contact me: https://www.skenz.it/ss
