Performance Evaluation of NL-BMD Precoding over Analog-Digital Hybrid Beamforming for High SHF Wide-Band Massive MIMO in 5G

Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology is a key enabler in 5G. A configuration combining analog beamforming and digital MIMO signal processing for multi-beam multiplexing, i.e. analog-digital hybrid beamforming, is one of the promising approaches of massive MIMO. With the configuration, we can mitigate the problems of complexity and power consumption, which are ...

Evaluating Bluetooth Low Energy Suitability for Time-Critical Industrial IoT Applications

In recent years, integration of wireless sensor networks in industrial environments has greatly increased. With this trend, new fields such as industrial IoT have arisen, which in turn have opened the doors to new possibilities that are shaping the future of industrial automation. In contrast to regular wireless networks, however, industrial applications of WSN are characterized ...

Comparative Performance Evaluation of RF Localization for Wireless Capsule Endoscopy Applications

This paper presents an assessment of the accuracy of cooperative localization of a wireless capsule endoscope (WCE) using radio frequency (RF) signals with particular emphasis on localization inside the small intestine. We derive the Cramer–Rao lower bound (CRLB) for cooperative location estimators using the received signal strength (RSS) or the time of arrival (TOA) of the RF ...

Position Tracking for Passive UHF RFID Tags with the Aid of a Scanned Array

Thanks to the proliferation of radio frequency identification systems (RFID), applications have emerged concerning positioning techniques for inexpensive passive RFID tags. The most accurate approaches for tracking the tag’s position, deliver precision in the order of 20 cm over a range of a few meters and require moving parts in a predefined pattern (mechanical antenna steering), ...

Wireless Technologies in Healthcare: Selected Papers from IEEE PIMRC 2011

The use of wireless technologies for medical device communication, health monitoring (at hospitals or homes) and mobile healthcare information delivery (i.e. m-Health) is one of the most rapidly growing areas in health-IT research today. The papers which appear in this special issue have been carefully selected from the best IEEE PIMRC 2011 conference. They are highlighting various ...
