Dr. Taneli Riihonen granted the Sähkössä on tulevaisuus award

The award was granted for his pioneering work in the development of the full-duplex data transmission technology.

D.Sc. (Tech.) Taneli Riihonen, Research Fellow at the School of Electrical Engineering, has been awarded the Sähkössä on tulevaisuus (‘The future is in electricity’) award. The award was granted as a recognition for his pioneering work in the development of the full-duplex data transmission technology. Dr. Riihonen received the award at the electricity, telecommunications, light and audiovisual exhibition Sähkö, Tele, Valo ja AV in Jyväskylä on 3 February. The winner of the award was chosen by the Association of Electrical Engineers in Finland and the Ulla Tuominen foundation.

Wireless full-duplex data transmission is a new promising concept that researchers across the world are interested in. During the past few years, this technology has developed into the basic research stage and could revolutionise the principles of radio communication. When the same frequency is utilised in two directions at the same time,  it is possible to even double the capacity for data transmission for the reserved frequency band. Radio frequencies are a rare resource, so the value of full-duplex radio technology may reach hundreds of billions of euros worldwide.

Dr. Riihonen completed his doctoral dissertation at the Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics at the Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering, after which he was a visiting associate research scientist and an adjunct assistant professor at Columbia University in the City of New York for over a year.  Now he has returned to the Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics in Otaniemi, and gives lectures on digital signal processing alongside his research.
