Research @ ICE

ICE research topics

The major ICE research topics and areas of expertise are listed below. Information about ongoing and completed projects can be obtained via the links of the respective ICE research groups. Many research projects are interdisciplinary and therefore are actually carried out by more than a single group.

Algorithm topics

  • Ubiquitous connectivity of future radio and home access technologies
  • Computing and communications for converged edge cloud and radio access
  • Connected intelligence (SON 2.0) for radio communication systems
  • AI operations for networking (AI Ops systems for proactive monitoring, diagnostics and troubleshooting)
  • Intelligent radio environment for Wireless 2.0

Hardware architectures topics

  • Transmitter/receiver architectures for Software Defined Radios (SDR)
  • Distributed cloud-based radio architectures
  • Time and reliability constraint radio architectures
  • Application specific instruction set processors (ASIP)
  • Reconfigurable ASIPs (rASIP)
  • Neuromorphic computing
  • Multi-Processor System-on-Chip
    • Application specific MPSoC platforms
    • Communication architectures (NoC) for mobile computing platforms
    • Memory subsystem optimization

Design tools topics
