Maarten Weyn

  • Research interest  (University of Antwerp):Our research focuses on low-power localisation and communication. Ranging from the embedded hardware design and implementation over the wireless link to the sensor fusion on the backend. Technologies which are being used are LPWAN (LoraWAN, Sigfox, NB-IoT), DASH7, 5G, BLE and UWB, (low orbit) satellite systems. On the side of the the embedded implementation we focus on low power sensor acquisition, processing and communication, energy harvesting and energy aware systems. In addition, I try to explain things such as electronics, Internet of things, localization and wireless communication to the general public.
