Personal profile


"My ambition is to contribute to the advancement of 5G New Radio with new developments in ultra-high speed and low latency mm-wave technology."

Research profile

Peter Smulders is Associate Professor with the Electromagnetics group at the department of Electrical Engineering. In addition to his lecturing duties, he has been doing research on high data rate wireless technology for 30 years. As such he addressed broadband WiFi and 3G, 4G and 5G radio technology including spectrum and regulation issues. He contributed to many national and international projects in close cooperation with, amongst others, NXP, TNO, IMST, Catena, Bell Labs, Thales, KPN, Samsung and Philips. He also contributed to a large number of demo- and pilot systems. One example is an own-developed pilot system that demonstrated, for the first time, wireless HDMI operation in the newly defined 60 GHz band.

Academic background

Peter Smulders is with the Electromagnetics Group of the department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. His current position is Associate Professor of Wireless Networks. His lectures are in the field of Wireless Communications and Automotive Radar.
