User association strategies in HetNets leading to rate balancing under energy constraints

This paper deals with the development of several strategies for associating users to base stations (BSs) in heterogeneous networks. These strategies are able to balance the rate among users and BSs and increase the overall network utility. Constraints related to the energy availability at BSs are considered explicitly in the design, assuming that the BSs are equipped with...

Distributed resource allocation with imperfect spectrum sensing information and channel uncertainty in cognitive femtocell networks

To meet the ever-increasing demands of mobile traffic, femtocells are considered as one of the promising solutions. In this paper, we study a sensing-based resource allocation scenario in cognitive femtocell networks and present an efficient distributed imperfect-spectrum-sensing-based resource allocation (DIRA) algorithm while considering the channel uncertainty to maximize the...

Threshold selection method for UWB TOA estimation based on wavelet decomposition and kurtosis analysis

In wireless sensor networks, ranging or positioning via ultra-wideband (UWB) has caused widespread research interests where the non-coherent energy detection (ED) method with low sampling rate and low complexity is widely studied. However, the traditional energy detection methods only analyze the signal energy in the time domain, so their error is relatively large. In this paper...

Scheduling multi-task jobs with extra utility in data centers

This paper investigates the problem of maximizing utility for job scheduling where each job consists of multiple tasks, each task has utility and each job also has extra utility if all tasks of that job are completed. We provide a 2-approximation algorithm for the single-machine case and a 2-approximation algorithm for the multi-machine problem. Both algorithms include two steps...

Offloading data traffic via cognitive small cells with wireless powered user equipments

This paper investigates data traffic offloading by considering a third-party cognitive small cell with wireless powered user equipments (UEs) providing data traffic offloading service to a primary macrocell. The cognitive small cell is assumed to use remaining resources for its own purpose provided that the quality of service (QoS) of the primary macrocell is satisfied. It is...

A strategy for joint service offloading and scheduling in heterogeneous cloud radio access networks

Cloud radio access network is one of the most promising cellular networks for the next generation of mobile networks. The basic idea of cloud RAN (radio access network) is virtualizing and centralizing the intelligent part of the base station, the base band unit, and keeping remote radio heads on cell site enabling a centralized processing and management. Offloading data...

Robust L1 tracker with CNN features

Recently, L1 tracker has been widely applied and received great success in visual tracking. However, most L1 trackers use only the image intensity for sparse representation, which is insufficient to represent the object especially when drastic appearance changes occur. Convolutional neural network (CNN) has demonstrated remarkable capability in a wide range of computer vision...

LLR-based coded performance analysis of cognitive dual-hop BICM systems

In this work, we analyze the performance of a cooperative two-hop cognitive relaying system using the “detect-and-forward” strategy. The cooperation between secondary users, in the underlay spectrum sharing mode, is under an interference constraint imposed by the primary network. The proposed analytical method is based on the probabilistic characterization of the bits reliability...

Joint resource optimization for secure transmission in cooperative CR networks

In this paper, we investigate the joint resource allocation to provide secure information transmission in a five-node cooperative cognitive radio network, which contains a primary transmitter (PT), a primary receiver (PR), a secondary transmitter (ST), a secondary receiver (SR), and an eavesdropper (E). To ensure the information is securely transmitted, PT and PR use a part of...

Multi-segmental OFDM signals equalization with piecewise linear channel model over rapidly time-varying channels

For rapidly time-varying channels, the performance of (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) OFDM systems with the conventional one tap equalizer will be significantly degraded. Because the orthogonality between subcarriers is destroyed, the conventional way to combat the inter-carrier interference (ICI) is employing the banded minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalizer...

In this paper, we study robust resource allocation for the multi-user full-duplex (FD) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems. Particularly, we aim at minimizing uplink (UL) transmit power and downlink (DL) transmit power simultaneously while guaranteeing the quality of service (QoS) requirements regarding secure UL and DL communication, under the...

A centralized simple leader election...

In addition to CBTC systems, passenger information systems (PISs) are adopted in urban rail transit systems to improve quality of service (QoS) offered to customers. The...

Resource allocation for OFDM-based multiuser cooperative underlay cognitive systems

This paper investigates the resource allocation problem for a multiuser underlay cognitive system where the secondary system is allowed to transmit and cooperate with the primary system.

Exploiting the overhearing capabilities of transmitting nodes to increase the energy efficiency in dense networks

The 1000-fold capacity increase envisioned by dense 5G networks results also in a tremendous increase in the energy consumption of the whole network. Utilizing relays in combination with physical-layer network coding (PNC) has been proposed as an energy-efficient solution to this problem by creating several short-distance low-power transmissions and by reducing the transmission...
