Welcome to the home page of the MANTA Research Lab
MANTA is the the Mobile Adaptive and pervasive NeTwork communicAtions research lab of the University of Trento. The lab is located at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science, and is led by Professors Paolo Casari and Michele Segata.
Our research focus is on communication systems and technologies for future intelligent applications, which include cooperative autonomy on land (e.g., driving) and in water (e.g., for autonomous underwater vessels), intelligent transportation systems, real-time communications and interactions, as well as enabling network-based services such as localization and network function placement.
In particular, we work on future 5G/6G cellular networks, vehicle-to-vehicle communication technologies such IEEE 802.11p, mmWave networks, underwater communications, and reconfigurable intelligent surfaces, to name a few. Please visit our publications page to read on our research work.
