Desired Project Deliverables

​The student is expected to closely work on an underwater wireless optical transmission testbed. Using the testbed equipment’s, the student will be running several sets of experiments and collect certain data (e.g., bit error rates, frame rates, channel condition, ..etc). The extracted data will be later used to design an optimal resource allocation framework for facilitating realtime transmission in such environments. ​
