Uncoordinated pilot decontamination in massive MIMO systems

This work concerns wireless cellular networks applying time division duplexing (TDD) massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology. Such systems suffer from pilot contamination during channel estimation, due to the shortage of orthogonal pilot sequences. This paper presents a solution based on pilot sequence hopping, which provides a randomization of the pilot ...

Design of adaptive constellations and error protection coding for wireless network coding in 5-node butterfly networks

In this paper, we focus on the design of a reliable communication scheme for generic 5-node wireless butterfly networks (WBN). Since the WBN represents a natural extension of the basic two-way relay communication channel, we follow the paradigm of Wireless Physical Layer Network Coding and we show that the design of novel adaptive constellations is desirable to exploit the ...

Adaptive deactivation and zero-forcing scheme for low-complexity LDPC decoders

A modified message propagation algorithm is proposed for a low-complexity decoder of low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes, which controls the information propagated from variable and check nodes.The proposed threshold-based node deactivation for variable nodes and zero-forcing scheme for check nodes remarkably reduce decoding complexity required for similar error performance. In ...

Ultra-wideband (UWB) radar with strong anti-jamming performance and high-range resolution can be used to separate multiple human targets in a complex environment. In recent years, through-wall human being detection with UWB radar has become relatively sophisticated. In this paper, the method of kernel principal component analysis (KPCA) feature extraction and the support vector ...

On the performance of the Code Division Duplex system using interference rejection codes

In this paper, we investigate the performance of the Code Division Duplex (CDD) system using the interference rejection codes, which exhibit zero correlation values on the relative delay-induced code offsets and can be applied to mitigate the mutual interference between the uplink and downlink. Specifically, we propose to employ loosely synchronous codes to effectively combat the ...

Subcarrier allocation based simultaneous wireless information and power transfer for multiuser OFDM systems

Most existing algorithms of simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems are studied based on power splitting or time splitting, which lead to time delay and the decrease of subcarrier utilization. In this paper, a multiuser OFDM system with multichannel is established and the subcarriers are divided into ...

A comprehensive wireless sensor network reliability metric for critical Internet of Things applications

Evaluating the reliability of a wireless sensor network (WSN) deployment is a highly important task especially when the WSN is used for a critical Internet of Things (IoT) application. In this paper, we introduce a novel comprehensive reliability metric to evaluate the reliability of WSN deployments over their intended mission time. Unlike the existing studies on the topic, the ...

On the security of cooperative cognitive radio networks with distributed beamforming

This paper investigates the secrecy performance of amplify-and-forward (AF)-relaying cooperative cognitive radio networks (CCRNs) over Rayleigh-fading channels. Specifically, we consider practical passive eavesdropping scenarios, where the channel state information of the eavesdropper’s link is not available at the secondary transmitter. In order to avoid interfering with the ...

A novel physical layer scheme based on superposition codes

The recently proposed superposition codes (SCs) have been mathematically proved to be decoded at any rate below the capacity, for additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channels. The main objective of this paper is to study the feasibility of a novel SC approach as an alternative to the traditional way of designing modern physical (PHY) layer schemes. Indeed, currently, PHY solutions ...

This paper deals with the performance of the fractional delay estimator in the joint complex amplitude/delay estimation algorithm dedicated to digital Tx leakage compensation in FDD transceivers. Such transceivers suffer from transmitter-receiver signal leakage. Combined with non linearity of components in the receiver path, the baseband received signal is impaired by a baseband ...

A spatial slotted-Aloha protocol in wireless networks for group communications

In a large-scale group communication networks, we propose a slotted-Aloha-based access control (SA-AC) scheme with the optimal transmission probability (TP) using the stochastic geometry. Since the performance of SA-AC scheme depends on the TP of the members in a group, the analytical model presents a joint view for the downlink (DL) and the uplink (UL) with TP of the members in a ...

Hardware and software design of BMW system for multi-floor localization

Although the Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS) sensors are capable of providing short-term high positioning accuracy, every positioning result significantly depends on the historical ones, which inevitably leads to the long-term error accumulation. The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is independent of the accumulative error, but the positioning accuracy is suffered by the irregular ...

Energy efficient power allocation strategy for 5G carrier aggregation scenario

Carrier aggregation (CA) is considered to be a potential technology in next generation wireless communications. While boosting system throughput, CA has also put forward challenges to the resource allocation problems. In this paper, we firstly construct the energy efficiency optimization problem and prove that the function is strictly quasi concave. Then we propose a binary ...

Hybrid connectivity restoration in wireless sensor and actor networks

Wireless sensor and actor networks are becoming more and more popular in the recent years. Each WSAN consists of numerous sensors and a few actors working collaboratively to carry out specific tasks. Unfortunately, actors are prone to failure due to harsh deployment environments and constrained power, which may break network connectivity resulting in disjoint components. Thus, ...

In this paper, we present a game-theoretic approach for the purpose of deriving the problem of joint beamforming and power control in cognitive radio (CR) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) broadcast channels (CR MIMO-BCs), where the primary users (PUs) coexist with the secondary users (SUs) and they share the same spectrum. The cognitive base station (CBS), which is equipped ...

Vector bin-and-cancel for MIMO distributed full-duplex

In a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) full-duplex network, where an in-band full-duplex infrastructure node communicates with two half-duplex mobiles supporting simultaneous up- and downlink flows, the inter-mobile interference between the up- and downlink mobiles limits the system performance. We study the impact of leveraging an out-of-band side channel between mobiles in such ...

Compressive cyclostationary spectrum sensing with a constant false alarm rate

Spectrum sensing is a crucial component of opportunistic spectrum access schemes, which aim at improving spectrum utilization by allowing for the reuse of idle licensed spectrum. Sensing a spectral band before using it makes sure the legitimate users are not disturbed. To that end, a number of different spectrum sensing method have been developed in the literature. Cyclostationary ...

Interference management with mismatched partial channel state information

We study the fundamental limits of communications over multi-layer wireless networks where each node has only limited knowledge of the channel state information. In particular, we consider the scenario in which each source-destination pair has only enough information to perform optimally when other pairs do not interfere. Beyond that, the only other information available at each ...
