Research interests

Advances in wireless communications technologies over the past century have profoundly changed the way we live, yet their full potential has yet to be realised. Dr Yong Zeng's research aims to address the fundamental challenges of wireless communication systems to fulfil the ever-increasing and highly diversified traffic demand, by developing innovative advanced communication and signal processing techniques.

"Mobile communication systems have gradually evolved to aim not just for high throughput but also for massive connectivity, superior reliability, high energy efficiency and the support of diverse applications with different requirements on data rate, latency and robustness.

"My research aims to fundamentally improve the performance of future wireless communication systems through innovative architecture designs and advanced communication and signal processing techniques.

"One project I'm currently working on aims to unlock the numerous applications of pilotless aircraft (drones) that are only possible with high-performance wireless drone-ground communications. Such applications include strengthening national security through aerial border surveillance; increasing farming productivity through precision agriculture; enhancing traffic efficiency through aerial traffic inspection and management; and improving transport logistics through drone package delivery. These applications are especially appealing in countries such as Australia, which has a large geographic area and sparse population distribution.

"I am enthusiastic about the field of wireless communication since it has changed and will continue to change almost every aspect of our life - including education, health care, business and entertainment - but many challenges remain to be addressed in order to support the ever-increasing communication requirements in a cost-effective manner. I am proud to make contributions towards this goal by conducting high-quality research."
