History of creation
In 2019, according to the results of participation in the competition for the right to receive grants from the President of the Russian Federation for state support of scientific schools of the Russian Federation headed by young doctors of sciences, another scientific school of St. Petersburg State University of Telecommunications named after Prof. M. Bonch-Bruevich was recognized. In connection with such a high status of the competition, the scientific school received the corresponding prefix "Higher scientific school of the Russian Federation". The competition was organized by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation together with the Council on Grants of the President of the Russian Federation. Research topic is "Development of a self-organizing urban-scale mesh network for data collection and management of Internet of things devices in Smart Sustainable Cities".
About the project
The scientific school is focused on a very urgent problem - the organization of infrastructure for the interaction of the Internet of things in Smart Sustainable Cities based on mesh topology. Because the number of Internet of things devices is increasing annually, it is necessary to consider the deployment of networks adapted to transmit small amounts of data over long distances from the Internet of things devices that make up the infrastructure of Smart Sustainable Cities.
Usually for the implementation of narrow-band wireless networks of the Internet of things, which are just of interest in this issue, LPWAN technologies are used.
The disadvantage of these technologies is the fact that a star topology is used for construction, which has significant disadvantages. For this class of networks, it is advisable to use self-organizing Mesh or AdHoc networks based on mesh topology, which will allow data to be delivered from the source to the receiver by relaying through intermediate nodes. Unfortunately, none of the LPWAN technologies involves the use of such a topology. As part of the work on the project, the team of the scientific school solves a whole range of tasks that will allow the development of self-organizing energy-efficient urban mesh networks for data collection and management of Internet of things in smart sustainable cities.
Theoretical studies will form the basis for creating a prototype hybrid MESH network that has no world analogues. The implementation of the project will not only prevent the Russian Federation from lagging behind in the described, rapidly developing field, but will also allow to get ahead of foreign developments, given the significant backlog of the scientific school. At the final stage of the project, pilot zones will be created to demonstrate the benefits of using the proposed networks, on which the main results of the work will be verified.
