Smart Wireless Systems - about


Illustration of Smartphone Techniques and AppliancesThe Smart Wireless Systems (SWS) is an established research group in the Department of Electronics (IES) at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Campus Gjøvik. The group researches into the applied wireless communications systems and their components in general. This is also a field of great relevance for a more efficient organization and management of modern industrial processes.


Research topics covered by the SWS group

  • Applied Wireless Technologies (Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, etc)
  • (Industrial) Internet-of-Things Techs (IQRF, Lora, SigFox, NB-IoT, etc)
  • Smart Digital Electronics
  • Radio Propagation
  • (Wireless) Biometrics Systems (Gait, Fingerprint, ECG)
  • Wireless-Security
  • (Wireless) E-Health / E-Medicine Systems
