Kind of work:
Student research project, Advanced Seminar, Bachelor Thesis
M.Sc. Oleksandr Andryeyev
Nowadays a problem of a mobile base station (MBS) placement attracts more and more attention. Movement capabilities of the MBS can be used to follow a crowd of cellular users. Therefore, a placement algorithm for MBS needs to be implemented. The performance of the algorithm is dependent on the accuracy of the provided data and accuracy of the algorithm itself. Localization accuracy, radio propagation model estimation etc. contributes to the final results.

* Literature study on error modelling in aerial and communication systems;
* Preparation of several scenarios and models in order to evaluate the influence of the particular error source;
* Influence estimation of different error sources and performance analysis of the proposed approach using simulations in Python.

* Analytical mind, ability to work independently
* Knowledge of communications systems and software development
* Python programming skills
* Git and Linux knowledge will be a plus
