Iliya Gurov

I am a PhD student working in the area of Wireless Sensor Networks under the supervision of Prof. Alejandro Buchmann. In particular, the goal of my dissertation is to architect a generic, real-world benchmark for WSN protocols and applications.

I hold a master degree of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology with emphasis on Sensor Networks from Technische Universität Darmstadt.

Research Projects


TUDuNet We are constructing a federation of sensor network testbeds at campus-scale, called TUDμNet which contains the first outdoor, permanent and unattended sensor network testbed to be made publicly available. This facilitates the development of sensor network software by means of centralized reprogramming and data logging.
