    In this article, we propose a cooperative space-time coding (STC) protocol, amalgamating the concepts of asynchronous cooperation, noncoherent detection, as well as distributed turbo coding (DTC), where neither symbol-level time synchronization nor channel-state information (CSI) estimation is required at any of the cooperating nodes, while attaining high performance even at low signal-to-noise ra...

    Internet potocol (IP) mobility support is one of the major challenges in vehicular networks for intelligent transportation systems (ITS) applications. The existence of mobile nodes onboard units (OBUs) exhibiting rapid changes in both speed and direction in the presence of static nodes (roadside units) presents a complex wireless network environment. Satisfactory levels of quality of service (QoS)... View full abstract»

    In this article, a new concept of data transmission over the statistical spectrum domain is presented and discussed its corresponding multiple access schemes based on signal cyclostationarity. The extra data transmitted over the statistical spectrum domain can be separated independently from the signals sent via the conventional time-frequency-space domain. Numerical results showed that the perfor... View full abstract»

    In this article, we identify some of the key problems encountered when designing noncoherent (NC) multiple- input, multiple-output (MIMO) downlink (DL) synchronization schemes for communicating over multipath fading channels. Our main objectives are to illustrate the information-theoretic features and to provide design guidelines for the initial synchronization of NC MIMO systems. We conclude by o... View full abstract»

  • Relay Selection in AF Cooperative Systems: An Overview

    In cooperative networks, mobile users do not only have the role of a data source or destination but also act as relays to help transmission from others. However, in a wireless network, there might be tens or even hundreds of mobile users that can play the role of relays for a given transmission. Relay selection strategies are, therefore, paramount to ensure successful deployment of cooperative tec... View full abstract»

    The simultaneous delivery of fixed and mobile services in digital terrestrial TV (DTT) networks is a very attractive concept, as it allows the reuse of content, spectrum, and infrastructure. However, the provision of mobile services in terrestrial networks is challenged by the more severe propagation conditions of the mobile scenario. In this context, significant gains can be achieved by exploitin... View full abstract»
