1 Trådløse Trondheim (TrT)/ WirelessTrondheim and its TrT Network lab Steinar H. Andresen, Dep. of Telematics, Norwegian University of Science and technology (NTNU)
2 TrT: Trådløse Trondheim Research and Business Radio Lab, New radio technologies Radio propagation research ITS Lab The instrumented raod TrT Access WiFi open air network, with roaming (handover) and location service. A shared physical infrs structure that can be used by multiple service providers (ISPs) TrT Network Lab & TrT Service Lab Service Lab Mobile services
3 Wi-Fi TrT The first steps
4 Wireless Trondheim as a research area TrT Access (or Broadband commons) –A wireless network in Trondheim city for everyone (initial user groups covers: NTNU, The County, The City administration Trondheim, The Electric Power Company of the town and Adressa the dominant regional newspaper). This gives a potential aggregated number of users in the range 40 to (includes all students at the univ. and all high school students). TrT Network lab –A full-sized outdoor lab suitable for testing new networking technologies. TrT Service Lab –A lab for mobile service development and testing.
5 TrT Access Coverage on opening day, 26. September approx. 80 APs
6 TrT Access Coverage on 1. Nov approx. 120 APs
7 TrT Network lab Infra structure Physical Infra structure –Broadbands connections (Gb/s, fiber og Cat5+ kabel). NB: TrT Network lab has its own communincation links (not shared by TrT Access) –Power Supply, –Mounting facilities and (agreements with property owners!) –Climatic safe housing for experimental equipment, etc. Preinstalled servers and experimental equipment –Measuring equipment –Programmable routers and access points –Servers to facilitate research, e.g a location server
8 TrT Network lab Institutions and firms Norwegian Road Authority Sør-Trøndelag County Traffic surveillance center NTNU: Dept. of Electronics and Telecom. Dept. of Telematics Dept. for Computers and Inform. technology The Q2S Center SINTEF ICT Communication systems NTNU: Dept. of civil engineering and transport, SINTEF Technology and society, Transport safety and - informatics Lab for behavior analysis at NTNU/SINTEF UNINETT Q-free AS Radionor Communication AS Norwegian Road Authority, The directorate Technology section
9 TrT Network lab as a research test bed for radio systems and mobile services Novel radio systems and technologies Antenna systems and implementation of MIMO ( Multiple input/output systems) Advanced modulation methods/systems Product design, cost efficient esthetical design and integration with other equipment along roads and streets. Novel systems solutions in wireless access networks Seamless handover between heterogeneous systems. Prioritised handling of emergency calls (and other important traffic) - testing of principles to be utilised for crisis management. Pilot testing of new principles to ensure quality of service,, information security and correct payment/charging.. Principles of location determination and navigation, possibilities of comparing technologies..
10 TrT Network Lab as a research area for Intelligent Transport Systems PROJECT EXAMPLES: Testing of the technology platform for ITS (6 th. framework project Cooperative Vehicle-Infrastructure System project, ref. IST eSafety-Cooperative Systems for Road Transport) Instrumentation for –Measuring environmental data g –Alerts/events or incident reporting Cooperative driving/traffic behaviour Prioritising public transport and emergency vehicles, adjusting the traffic lights according to traffic patterns, and events, etc. ISA (Intelligent Speed Adaptation) technology testing the impact on drivers and traffic.. CALM/WLAN design combined with road light plant
11 TrT Network lab - possible future roads
12 Infra structure sample cabinets and environment
13 Road lamp integration?
14 TrT Network lab gives En city- wide physical high capacity communication network Basic instrumentation and functions: –Communication with measuring points –Mounting space/sites –Power supply –Location server that can determine the position of any WiFi device –Report services (enabling scheduled testing periods)- to be developed. Project specific instrumentation tailored to every research groups needs.
