Dr Paweł Kułakowski obronił doktorat na AGH w roku 2007. Pracował na uczelniach zagranicznych: Technical University of Cartagena, University of Girona, University of Castilla-La Mancha, University of Seville i University of Lisbon. Uczestniczył w licznych projektach badawczych, m.in. był w komitecie wykonawczym projektów COST IC1004 (również jako szef grupy badawczej indoor) i IRACON, obecnie jest też kierownikiem ds. badań i rozwoju w projekcie NCBiR dot. miejskich sieci 5G i edytorem wykonawczym w czasopiśmie ETT (Wiley). Jest współautorem około 50 prac naukowych (w tym 3 nagrodzonych) i trzech książek, a także laureatem stypendium MNiSW dla młodych wybitnych naukowców. Jego obecne zainteresowania naukowe dotyczą planowania i rozwoju sieci 5/6G, AI w zastosowaniach medycznych i nano-komunikacji.

Summary: 
Wireless sensor and actuator networks for environmental operations are discussed in this paper. A scenario of a forest being under fire is analyzed. While the forest fire detection is a classical application for sensor networks, here this research area is extended, taking into account actuators and focusing on sensors–actuators cooperation. First, the spreading of the fire is illustrated, adapting a well-known model based on percolation theory and explaining its relations with epidemics propagation models. Then, it is shown how the temperature data gathered by sensors can be used by actuators to automatically perform actions to battle with blaze. Finally, the simulation results are presented, documenting the correctness of the decisions taken by the system and the efficiency of fire-fighting actions related to the sensors density.
