Tracks & Projects

Tracks & Projects


The five tracks structure the scientific roadmap of CominLabs. They coordinate the scientific activities of CominLabs, help the emergence of new projects, and promote the project results.

Waves, IoT & Networks

Due to strong regional expertise in the areas of communications, Internet of Things (IoT), and networks, the actors of the CominLabs territory are very active in these areas. The « Waves, IoT & Networks » track covers a wide spectrum. CominLabs develops through numerous project activities ranging from antennas, signal transmission, and reception, to digital data transmission and coding. The domains of application are vast as soon as the need arises to communicate data or to make elements communicate between them. The Internet of Things is a growing challenge, especially with the deployment of 5G, due to the multiplication of connected and communicating objects. An important objective is to design infrastructures that are increasingly efficient and effective, with better connectivity, lower latency, while taking into account energy consumption and security issues.
