    Power wires are now recognized to be of interest for many applications such as indoor or in-vehicle communications. This medium usually presents a frequency selectivity behavior, with very slow variations in time. Moreover, data transmissions encounter significant impairments such as impulsive and radio disturbances. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is a well dedicated modulation ...

  • Improved decoder schemes for QOSTBCs based on single-symbol decoding

    It has been shown that a quasi-orthogonal space-time block code (QOSTBC) provides full transmission rate for four transmit antennas [3]-[5]. However, one of the QOSTBC's main disadvantages is high decoder complexity due to the channel interference terms in detection matrix. In this paper, we propose two improved decoder schemes to reduce complexity at the decoder. Our decoder schemes can fully eli... View full abstract»

  • A deterministic lower bound for the radius in sphere decoding search

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):11 - 16
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (841 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper we examine the problem of MIMO detection with sphere decoding (SD) methods. These methods obtain the Maximum Likelihood solution in a reasonable time, through restriction of the space search to an hypersphere of a given radius, with center in the received signal. The performance of the sphere decoding algorithms will be acceptable only if the initial radius estimate is close to the f... View full abstract»

    Ad hoc network is an essential means of communication in disaster scenes. Validation of new communication protocols for these networks requires exhaustive simulation runs because real life experiences can be performed exclusively during expensive civil protection exercises. The necessity of these simulations calls for realistic and reliable mobility models which take into account numerous aspects ... View full abstract»

    Sensor networks have applications that have spread widely in various fields of the industry; and one of the most useful applications is data collection. Specifically, the data collection for large areas has become critical in commercial industry, science, and academic researches. However, the existing relevant MAC protocols have shown their unsuitability to apply for these systems. In our previous... View full abstract»

    The radio applications in wireless sensor networks where the energy constraint is vital are considered. In this context, the impact of cooperative strategies is analyzed thanks to the realistic power model of a real radio transceiver. A system using a two-antenna source, two one-antenna relays and one-antenna destination is considered. Three types of association strategies of Space time coding and... View full abstract»

    Routing protocols are challenges in designing Mobile Ad-hoc networks with low energy consuming. This paper extends the expanding ring search (ERS) algorithm proposed in to optimize the energy consuming caused by broadcasting redundance messages. Simulation results show that the required message packages for routing by using our algorithm is significantly reduced in comparison with that required by... View full abstract»

    Conventional spectrum sensing techniques using multiple antennas has two weak points to develop further in practice. The first point is the requirement of channel state information (CSI) to combine signal from each antenna. The second point is the assumption of exact values of the signal and noise variance to perform spectrum sensing. In practice, it is not easy and requires time to obtain CSI due...
