Welcome to the new Lab of Distributed Systems and Telematics website!
You can visit the old Research Unit 6 website here.
The Lab of Distributed Systems and Telematics is one of the Labs of the Department of Computer Engineering & Informatics of University of Patras. The LDST exhibits substantial research activity in the following areas:
The LDST conducts research on mobile networks and applications proposing innovative techniques in order to meet the Next Generation Mobile Networks high performance demands and employing state-of-art web technologies for mobile application development.
The LDST research in this area deals with the latest developments in wired networks, including the design, implementation, simulation and testing of existing and proposed technologies.
The LDST conducts research on cross-layer design and mechanisms and proposes cross-layer schemes to address various problems in wireless communications.
Simulation has always been a valuable tool for experimentation and validation of models, architectures and mechanisms in the field of networking. In order to study and validate wired and wireless network architecture issues we use several simulation environments.
The unique set of low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) characteristics in comparison with other wireless technologies in the best way possible suited for IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M (Machine to Machine) needs.
