Multiple-Antenna Systems Wireless Institute researchers have created a number of technologies that allow wireless devices to practically exploit multiple antennas for increased capacity, coverage, and reliability.
Multiple-Antenna Systems
Enhancing the Capabilities of Cyber-Physical Systems Every area of modern life, from mundane household applications to concerns of national security or issues of human health, is affected by cyber-physical systems.
Enhancing the Capabilities of Cyber-Physical Systems
Electromagnetic Radiation and Human Health The effect of electromagnetic radiation on human health is the subject of debate, especially as it pertains to portable wireless devices. Notre Dame researchers are studying ways to improve device performance without increasing radiation levels.
