Wireless Multimedia and Communication Laboratory
(WMCLab)
CLIENTS

Wireless Multimedia and Communication Lab.

WMCLab was funded by Prof. Min-Kuan C. Chang in 2004 initially aiming at designing a wireless communication system suitable for multimedia transmission. WMCLab is located at R715 in EE building, NCHU. With years of evolution, WMCLabs now focuses on several interesting topics including: 

1. Game-theoretical design:
    We investigate the possibilities of applying the Game Theory to help design the ways of allocating

    resource among users based on their interaction so that users can be better served in

    communication systems where interaction matters. We focus on

    1.) how to pairing/grouping  users so that the resource can be better utilized,

    2.) how users share the limited resource from the game-theoretical perspective, 

    3.) how the theoretical limitation of the game-theoretical approaches, and

    4.) to propose a new game model to better fit the communications

 

2. Performance analysis of advanced communication systems 

    With rapid development of wireless communication systems, it is of great importance to understand

    how these  systems behave in the different kinds of communication environment.  We focus on

    search for or design new promising communication systems such as D2D, Cooperative    

    communications, Full-duplex communications, IoT and so on, and  derive their theoretical

    performance in light of channel impairment.

3. Multimedia systems

    Multimedia is all around us and we just cannot live without it. In this context, we focus on

    1.) how multimedia data can be transported over the air with sufficient resource,

    2.) how to secure the transmitted multimedia data so that any unwanted tampering can be detected,

         and

    3.) how secrecy data can be dispatched with the help of multimedia.

4. Machine learning and Deep learning

    The profound capability of Machine learning and Deep learning has enabled many interesting fields

    of research. In WMCLab, we focus ourself on 

    1.) How they help distribute resource among users in an efficient and  intelligent way.

    2.) How they reshape the design philosophy of wireless communication systems.

    3.) What the fundamental limits of them are. 

 

5. Signal processing in point cloud

    With the emerging advance in automatic driving, point cloud signal processing is gaining its       

    attention. In WMC Lab, with support of Qualcomm in 2019, we set up the research environment to

    investigate the advanced technology for point cloud signal process . We mainly focus on

    1.) Registration of point clouds via deep learning

    2.) Real-time site construction based on point clouds

    3.) Object recognition in point clouds

Are we recruiting? Yes, we are!! We are looking for students in Master or PhD level to join us!!
