The objective of this research topic is to propose a model of wireless networks that is self-organised in order to answer the needs of tracking the activity of mobile entities.

We focus on three types of applications:


Our scientific perspectives is to answer to the application needs by proposing a network model that is both transparent and autonomous, that is without interfering with the activity of the mobile entities. The acronym LP-WPAN (Low Power - Wireless Personal Area Network) stands for a category of personal networks designed to have a long lifetime and whose devices have a low cost. Those devices are light and small, and can be carried easily. Such devices can appear as a badge or be integrated to a mobile equipement.

Keywords: LP-WPAN, tracking applications, bio-contamination, localisation.


In this topic, Chakib Baouche is doing his PhD thesis on the conception of a model of LP-WPAN in order to track the contacts of a mobile population.
