In the great majority of cities it is difficult and hardly expensive to create more parking spaces for vehicles since they have almost reached its full occupancy. Combining this problem with an inefficient use of parking spaces leads to congestions due to aggregation of parking seekers and regular drivers. Recent advances in low-cost, low-power embedded(More)
We propose and experimentally demonstrate new architectures to realize multi-tap microwave photonic filters, based on the generation of a single or multiple dynamic Brillouin gratings in polarization maintaining fibers. The spectral range and selectivity of the proposed periodic filters is extensively tunable, simply by reconfiguring the positions and the(More)
A novel technique for the localization of stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS) interaction is proposed, analyzed and demonstrated experimentally. The method relies on the phase modulation of two counter-propagating optical waves by a common pseudo-random bit sequence (PRBS), these waves being spectrally detuned by the Brillouin frequency shift. The PRBS(More)
A novel approach for fibre distributed sensing is proposed, conceived to match as closely as possible to an ideally responding distributed sensor. It is demonstrated that it can be actually realized using fibre Bragg gratings of extremely low index contrast and continuously printed over the entire fibre length. The concept is experimentally validated over a(More)
Most of the IoT applications are distributed in nature generating large data streams which have to be analyzed in near real-time. Solutions based on Complex Event Processing (CEP) have the potential to extract high-level knowledge from these data streams but the use of CEP for distributed IoT applications is still in early phase and involves many drawbacks.(More)
A new technique to investigate the spatial distribution of the reflection spectrum along fabricated long weak fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) is experimentally demonstrated, together with its potential applications for distributed fiber sensing and broadband signal processing. A short pulsed coherent light signal is launched into a FBG and the signal frequency(More)
In this work we evaluate dynamic range degradation in a Slow Light cascaded SOA-based stages microwave phase shifter when tuning the induced phase shift. The fundamental signal and third order intermodulation distortion have been evaluated at both the phase shifter input and output attending this purpose. Results show a slight degradation when the phase(More)
During the last years, Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have been deployed at an accelerated rate. The complexity and low-power requirements of these networks have also been growing. Therefore, WSN developers are beginning to require efficient methodologies for network simulation and embedded SW performance analysis. These tools should also include security(More)
