Cooperative Radio Communications for Green Smart Environments – COST Action IC1004

Smart Environments (SEs), like the human body, energy efficient buildings, vehicular or urban environments, are populated by many devices connected by wireless networks. The radio channel is central to SEs, as it impacts the design of transmission techniques and communication protocols. Radio communications in SEs need to be green and based on cooperative paradigms to mitigate the effect of interference and improve efficiency. This Action addresses research issues in the field of cooperative radio communications to make our society cleaner, safer, and more energy efficient.
The main goal of the Action is to increase knowledge of cooperative communications applied to Green SEs (GSEs), by exploring and developing new methods, models, techniques, strategies and tools, in a context enriched by deep industry-academia links. Europe will benefit from the activities of this Action, as GSEs will be one of the key components of the broader field of the Internet of Things, a domain of interest to many large and small companies in Europe. The Action lasts from January 2011 to December 2014.
