Role and Areas of Interests

Role of the VTC

The VT Egyptian Chapter aims to have different ways to cooperate with various researchers or bachelor’s graduation projects and post-graduate students and the extent to which they can communicate as one of the academic representatives’ sectors in Egypt. In addition, VTC will try to support communication and to propose working groups such as jointly funded technical projects or joint research topics. This will enhance the engagement with the industrial sector, service providers, companies manufacturing components of communications systems, as well as the bodies responsible for regulating communications.

So, the main objective of the chapter is to try to connect the industry and its requirements with the academic world and government regulatory bodies.


VTC Areas of Interest

Radio communication technologies include wireless communications and all mobile communications networks. These will include all of the modern antenna technologies such as Massive MIMO Systems, 6G systems, and its emerging technologies such as Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces (IRS). In addition, the spectrum reframing of the current spectra and related regulatory issues in order to consider the implementation of various emerging technologies and applications. Also, I illustrated the techniques that may be used in resource utilization and improvements of the key performance indices of mobile communication networks via the deployment of different artificial intelligence categories: machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL), and federated learning (FL). So, the chapter’s study groups will focus on the maximization of wireless network throughput. This will enhance the realization of the integration between heterogeneous wireless networks’ layers: satellites, aerial, terrestrial, wireless IoT networks, smart wireless sensor networks, and indoor communications facilities. This could act as a spotlight in the roadmap for ubiquitous wireless network deployment.
Smart Transport Technologies (ITS) and all its related features include the activation of Toll Intelligent Payment Techniques and traffic light management techniques to reduce traffic congestion, reduce traffic congestion, fair distribution systems and optimize the use of traffic hubs.
Electric vehicles technologies and possible strategies to guide and manage them, whether self-driving (autonomous) cars or those with aided driving. In addition, the most likely practical applied technologies such as systems for smart transporting and stacking goods inside giant warehouses such as the stores of e-commerce companies such as Amazon were discussed.- Also, a proposal (currently under consideration) for the management of some Egyptian seaports to regulate the transport of containers was reviewed, as well as ways of allocating them together to maximize the use of storage space on the docks, as well as reducing waiting and drip times for container trucks at the ports. I also referred to the trial carried out by the State of China as a practical application of the use of CT imaging in the distribution and testing of medicines during the coronavirus pandemic.
