Partners: Advanced Studies and Research Center

Period: 19 november 2012 – 20 november 2014

Project director: Prof. Dr. Ing. Vasile Lazarescu

Project team: Prof. Dr. Ing. Vasile Lazarescu, Prof. Dr. Ing. Rodica Stoian, Dr. Ing. Dragos Ioan Sacaleanu, Prof. Dr. Ing. Sever Pasca, As. Dr. Ing. Lucian Perisoara, Drd. Marius Rosu, Dr. Ing. Florin Serban, Dr. Ing. Adrian Stoica, Dr. Ing. Stefan-Adrian Toma.

Description: The project aims to increase the lifetime of a Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) in practical applications combining classical procedures used in WSN with elements of Information Theory. 

Project objectives:

  • Develop Distributed Compression Algorithms (DCA), data aggregation algorithms and synchronization algorithms in order to minimize the energy consumption of a wireless sensor node;
  • Develop experimental wireless sensor networks to monitor the environmental and medical parameters ;
  • Test and validate the algorithms on the developed wireless sensor networks.


  • WP1 – Definition of experimental model requirements, architecture and preliminary concept
  • WP2 – Experimental hardware implementation
  • WP3 – Nodes algoritms elaboration
  • WP4 – Experimental base station and acquisition software implementation
  • WP5 – Validation and Evaluation
