Wireless Communication and Signal Processing Research Group


WCSP Vision

WCSP cares through share by bringing together academics, researchers, contract research staff, technical staff and industrialists interested in research, development and application of sensors.


WCSP Mission

WCSP involves with researcher colleagues by addressing their research interests & concerns to be on board with them.


General Interests

The group is interested in stimulating links with users and developers, irrespective of discipline or background. This covers areas such as control, optical sensors, medical instrumentation, acoustic measurements and electrical drives, condition monitoring and micro-controller applications. The aim of this group is to develop methods for detecting, measuring, monitoring and predicting changes through time in land condition using sequences of remotely sensed data including research and technology development related to acquisition, pre-processing and acquisition related aspects of data. The group has several research areas such as: Distributed sensing, Moisture measurement systems, Rain Intensity measurements, Rain Effects on microwave communications systems, Humidity effects on RF signals, Multi-point and distributed sensor systems, Applied research of the highest quality, combining academic rigor with exciting applications, in the areas of automation, interfacing and transmission, biomedical sensors and monitoring, distributed measurements, optical, radiation, biological to chemical sensing and includes sensing through imaging, remote sensing and image integration, data storage and retrieval, imaging data acquisition, traffic data acquisition systems and management, satellite signal acquisition and onboard data handling of satellite subsystems.
