SDR / Academia

I just talked about using GNU Radio at the Open Radio Platforms workshop at Crowncom. It was my first time at the conference and, since I did not actively work on cognitive radio, it was also a whole new community for me.

In that regard, it was interesting to get a new perspective on wireless and learn about the problems that these community is tackling. I was particularly happy to see that they appreciate work on better SDR platforms and testbeds, i.e., they see SDR as a technology and not just as a tool for research.

This year, Crowncom was in Ghent. And, to be honest, I didn’t checkout anything about the city before I went there. So I was surprised that it is so beautiful there.
