AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims at providing the basics of radio communication principles and a functional description of latest generation radio mobile systems with particular focus on their application in infomobility data management. Localization technologies are investigated and compared, either terrestrial and satellite based. Sensors technologies for traffic monitoring are described together with their application within complex system for smart road monitoring. The European standard E-Call is analyzed in details. RFID, Bluetooth and NFC technologies are described for their use in logistics applications.

Teaching methods

The course will be based on frontal lessons for the theoretical introduction (initial part of the course) followed by slide presentation about international case studies (final part of the course)

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The main contents of the course will focus on:

Introduction to Information Theory: definition of a digital Information Source, Entropy, Coding

Introduction to digital representation and transmission of Source symbols: duality Time-Frequency, Carrier modulation, symbol interval, noise sensitivity

Introduction to channel protection: Forward Error Correction (FEC), Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ), additive and bursty noise

Introduction to Radio Frequency signals: Path attenuation, Beam width, muti-path attenuation, rain attenuation, Inter Symbolic Interference (ISI), radio coverage

2G/3G/4G standards: radio access, traffic rate, authentication, Hand-over, performances

Bluetooth, RFID, NFC standards

IoT in transportation: sensors for traffic flow analysis, for vehicle detection and classification, for passenger security, for autonomous guide

Case study analysis

EXAMS

Exam description

The course can be passed through a test at the end of the semester or in regular sessions after the semester conclusion, based on a written test optionally followed by an oral exam. The oral exam, optional to the choice of the student, can increase or decrease the mark of the written test of up to 3 points.

The written test will consist preferably of a list of questions with multiple choice with or without a request of a short motivation of the answer. Each correct answer will provide positive contribution to the final mark, incorrect answers will give negative contribution, not answered answer will not contribute to the mark.
