The Optical and WIreless sensors Networks for 6G scenarios (OWIN6G) project brings together important industry and academic stakeholders with the goal of developing a structured European training programme for early stage researchers in optical technologies to facilitate disruptive wireless sensor applications within sixth-generation (6G) wireless networks.

EU Project OWIN6G Goals & Concepts

  • Train a new generation of doctoral candidates with in IoT/IoE-inspired RF/optical wireless sensor networks (WSNs)
  • Research novel photonic sensor technologies, hybrid RF/optical energy-harvesting transceivers and PoE/PLC backbone networks.
  • Research energy-efficient MAC protocols, apply SDN concepts for security purposes and develop an optimization framework for future 6G WSNs
  • Apply the OWIN6G tech into key applications including body-area networks, e-health, air quality monitoring and localization
