This paper presents measurements and statistical characterization of 300- to 320-GHz desktop channels. The measurements are performed in line-of-sight (LoS) and non-LoS (NLoS) environments. From the large set of LoS measured data, the parameters for the single-slope path-loss model with shadowing are devised. The results show that the path-loss exponent is around 1.9 and that the variations due to... View full abstract»

• ### A Depth-First ML Decoding Algorithm for Tail-Biting Trellises

Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):3339 - 3346
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| |PDF (1179 KB) | HTML

Tail-biting codes are efficient for short data packets by eliminating the rate loss in conventional known-tail codes. The existing maximum-likelihood (ML) decoding algorithms, such as the Viterbi heuristic ML decoder (VH ML decoder) and the trap detection-based ML decoder (TD-ML decoder), have to visit each state of the tail-biting trellis at least once. The decoding efficiency of these decoding a... View full abstract»

This paper investigates cooperative control of a collection of vehicles operating in a vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) with access-constrained fading channels. To establish a systematic methodology, we first formulate and solve the problem for general networked control systems (NCSs) where the sensors communicate with the controller via access-constrained fading channels.

• ### Torque-Vectoring-Based Vehicle Control Robust to Driver Uncertainties

Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):3359 - 3367
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| |PDF (912 KB) | HTML

Driver-in-the-loop stability is a central issue in vehicle control systems. However, since a general human behavior model to explore it in a quantitative fashion has been lacking, little is known about how the vehicle can be controlled while considering the driver effects. Indeed, applying a control method without considering the driver effects, and instead separating human level and machine dynam... View full abstract»

This paper presents a tire–road friction coefficient estimation method based on the six-degrees-of-freedom (6-DoF) vehicle body acceleration. The key principle of the proposed method is to estimate the tire–road friction coefficient from the accelerations at the tire.

In this paper, we propose a new approach for a robust multirate lane-keeping control scheme with predictive virtual lanes. First, the multirate lane-keeping control scheme is proposed to improve the lane-keeping performance and to reduce the ripple in the yaw rate. To improve the lane-keeping performance on a curved road, the integral of the lateral offset error is added to the state feedback cont... View full abstract»

Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):3402 - 3413
Cited by:  Papers (3)
| |PDF (1912 KB) | HTML

Hybrid powertrain provides driving torque based upon the vehicle acceleration pedal position. Due to the slow response of the internal combustion (IC) engine, the electric motor(s) (EM) often has to provide additional torque during transient vehicle operations. During cold-start operations, the available battery power is significantly reduced due to cold temperatures, and due to the starting delay... View full abstract»

In this paper, the idea of signal space diversity is adopted to achieve a full-rate multiple-relay cooperative communication system. The data symbols are rotated at the source, before transmission, by a certain angle to permit signal detection either by the in-phase component or by the quadratic component. The real and imaginary parts of two consecutive symbols are transmitted by the source and View full abstract»

• ### Multiple-Attempt Decoding of Convolutional Codes Over Rayleigh Channels

Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):3426 - 3439
| |PDF (1410 KB) | HTML

The Viterbi algorithm (VA) is a maximum-likelihood method used to decode convolutional codes with the minimum average number of bit errors. In the case of decoding errors, the receiver can request a retransmission of a message by means of an automatic repeat request (ARQ) scheme until it receives the message correctly. Here, we present an alternative approach to reduce decoding errors by deploying... View full abstract»

In this paper, we establish a three-node cooperative framework, where three nodes compete to transmit their own information to other nodes in an adaptive manner. Motivated by Darwin's “natural selection law” whose essence is “adaptation,” a new opportunistic ROle SElection (ROSE) mechanism is presented, and the cooperative role for each node can be adaptively adjusted b...

Publication Year: 2015, Page(s):3465 - 3480
Cited by:  Papers (11)
| |PDF (3146 KB) | HTML

Eigenvalue-based methods have been widely investigated for multiantenna blind spectrum sensing in cognitive radio (CR). However, most of them are formulated in the framework of maximum likelihood (ML) estimation, which is optimal only when the number of samples is much larger than the number of antennas. In relatively small-sample scenarios where the number of antennas is comparable in magnitude t... View full abstract»

It is common practice in wireless communications to assume strict or wide-sense stationarity of the wireless channel in time and frequency. While this approximation has some physical justification, it is only valid inside certain time–frequency regions. This paper presents an elaborate characterization of the non-stationarity of wireless dual-polarized (DP) channels in time. The evaluation ... View full abstract»

In this paper, we analytically study the impact of spectrum-allocation scheme in picocells on the coverage probability (CP) of the pico user (PU) when the macro base stations (MBSs) employ either fractional frequency reuse (FFR) or soft frequency reuse (SFR). Assuming a fixed size for the picocell, the CP expression is derived for a PU present in either a FFR- or a SFR-based deployment and when th... View full abstract»

The intercarrier interference (ICI) resulting from the loss of orthogonality caused by the time-varying property of the propagation channels degrades the data detection performance of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM)-based wireless communication systems. Further, the severity of the problem increases when the mobile speed is relatively higher than the number of subcarriers. In thi... View full abstract»

Interference alignment (IA) is a precoding technique that aligns interfering signals at receivers. It is known that IA achieves the maximum degrees of freedom over an interference channel under ideal assumptions. The real-world performance of IA depends on a range of practical issues, such as imperfect synchronization, channel estimation, and feedback. Practical issues have been studied in simulat...
