  1. An information-guided channel-hopping scheme for block-fading channels with estimation errors

    KAUST Repository

    Yang, Yuli

    2010-12-01

    Information-guided channel-hopping technique employing multiple transmit antennas was previously proposed for supporting high data rate transmission over fading channels. This scheme achieves higher data rates than some mature schemes, such as the well-known cyclic transmit antenna selection and space-time block coding, by exploiting the independence character of multiple channels, which effectively results in having an additional information transmitting channel. Moreover, maximum likelihood decoding may be performed by simply decoupling the signals conveyed by the different mapping methods. In this paper, we investigate the achievable spectral efficiency of this scheme in the case of having channel estimation errors, with optimum pilot overhead for minimum meansquare error channel estimation, when transmitting over blockfading channels. Our numerical results further substantiate the robustness of the presented scheme, even with imperfect channel state information. ©2010 IEEE.

    An adaptive bit loading and power-allocation scheme is proposed in order to augment the performance of the system based on orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), which is based on the maximum power margin. Coinciding with the adaptive loading scheme, a semi-blind channel estimation algorithm using subspace decomposition method is proposed, which uses the information in the cyclic prefix. An initial channel state information is estimated by using the training sequences with the method of interpolation filtering. The proposed adaptive scheme is simulated on an OFDM wireless local area network(WLAN) system in a time-varying channel. The performance is compared to the constant loading scheme.

    In order to mitigate bandwidth attenuation of diffusion link visible light communication systems caused by multipath effects, we present an optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing channel estimation scheme based on compressed sensing (CS) and estimation of signal parameters via rotational invariance techniques (ESPRIT). First, we derived a parametric channel model. Then, we used ESPRIT to obtain multipath channel parameters. After that, we built a dynamic over-complete dictionary that can be used in CS processing. Finally, we reconstructed the channel response by using a basis pursuit denoising algorithm to equalize the received signal in frequency domain. Compared with traditional schemes, the proposed scheme can improve channel estimation accuracy without increasing dictionary size. A set of computer simulations demonstrated the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

    Full Text Available Compressive sensing based channel estimation has shown its advantage of accurate reconstruction for sparse signal with less pilots for OFDM systems. However, high computational cost requirement of CS method, due to linear programming, significantly restricts its implementation in practical applications. In this paper, we propose a reduced complexity channel estimation scheme of modified orthogonal matching pursuit with sliding windows for ISDB-T (Integrated Services Digital Broadcasting for Terrestrial system. The proposed scheme can reduce the computational cost by limiting the searching region as well as making effective use of the last estimation result. In addition, adaptive tracking strategy with sliding sampling window can improve the robustness of CS based methods to guarantee its accuracy of channel matrix reconstruction, even for fast time-variant channels. The computer simulation demonstrates its impact on improving bit error rate and computational complexity for ISDB-T system.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available In this paper outage performance of a secondary user (SU is evaluated under amplify and forward (AF relay selection scheme with an imperfect channel state information (CSIwhile sharing spectrum in an underlay cognitive radio network (CRN. In underlay, the SU coexists with primary user (PU in the same band provided the interference produced by SU at the PU receiver is below the interference threshold of PU which limits the transmission power of SU and coverage area. Relays help to improve the performance of SU in underlay. However relays are also constrained in transmit power due to interference constraint imposed by PU. Closed form expression of the outage probability of SU with maximum transmit power constraint of relay under imperfect CSI is derived. A scaling factor based power control is used for the SU transmitter and the relay in order to maintain the interference constraint at PU receiver due to imperfect CSI. The impact of different parameters viz. correlation coefficient, channel estimation error, tolerable interference threshold, number of relays and the maximum transmit power constraint of relay on SU performance is investigated. A MATLAB based test bed has also been developed to carry out simulation in order to validate the theoretical result.

    2007-01-01

    We consider a MIMO fading broadcast channel and compute achievable ergodic rates when channel state information is acquired at the receivers via downlink training and explicit channel feedback is performed to provide transmitter channel state information (CSIT). Both ``analog'' and quantized (digital) channel feedback are analyzed, and digital feedback is shown to be potentially superior when the feedback channel uses per channel coefficient is larger than 1. Also, we show that by proper design of the digital feedback link, errors in the feedback have a relatively minor effect even if simple uncoded modulation is used on the feedback channel. We extend our analysis to the case of fading MIMO Multiaccess Channel (MIMO-MAC) in the feedback link, as well as to the case of a time-varying channel and feedback delay. We show that by exploiting the MIMO-MAC nature of the uplink channel, a fully scalable system with both downlink multiplexing gain and feedback redundancy proportional to the number of base station ant...

  7. Hybrid Transmission Scheme for MIMO Relay Channels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Guangming Xu

    2009-11-01

    Full Text Available To improve the achievable rate for the MIMO channels, we propose a hybrid transmission (HT scheme that mixes half-duplex decode-and-forward cooperative relaying transmission (DFRH)with direct transmission (DT. In the HT scheme, the source message is divided into two parts: one is transmitted by DFRH scheme and another is transmitted by DT scheme. Precoding and decoding are considered to convert the original MIMO relay channel into several parallel subchannels so that resource allocation can be easily performed. We focus on the spatial subchannel and power allocation problem. The objective of this problem is to maximize the total achievable rate under the constraints of joint total transmission power. Simulation results show that significant capacity gain can be achieved by the HT scheme compared to the DT scheme and the pure DFRH scheme.

    A method of coherent detection and channel estimation for punctured convolutional coded binary Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) signals transmitted over a frequency-flat Rayleigh fading channels used for a digital radio broadcasting transmission is presented. Some known symbols are inserted in the encoded data stream to enhance the channel estimation process.The pilot symbols are used to replace the existing parity symbols so no bandwidth expansion is required. An iterative algorithm that uses decoding information as well as the information contained in the known symbols is used to improve the channel parameter estimate. The scheme complexity grows exponentially with the channel estimation filter length. The performance of the system is compared for a normalized fading rate with both perfect coherent detection (corresponding to a perfect knowledge of the fading process and noise variance) and differential detection of Differential Amplitude Phase Shift Keying (DAPSK). The tradeoff between simplicity of implementation and bit-error-rate performance of different techniques is also compared.

    The 4-channel smooth wavelets with linear phase and orthogonality are designed from the 2-channel orthogonal wavelets with high transfer vanishing moments. Reversely, for simple lifting scheme of such 4-channel orthogonal wavelet transforms, a new 2-channel orthogonal wavelet associated with this 4-channel wavelet is constructed. The new 2-channel wavelet has at least the same number of vanishing moments as the associated 4-channel one. Finally, by combining the two such 2-channel wavelet systems, the lifting scheme of 4-channel orthogonal wavelet transform, which has simple structure and is easy to apply, is presented.

    1989-10-01

    A method is proposed for conflict-free access of a broadcast channel. The method uses a variable-length coding scheme to determine which user gains access to the channel. For an idle channel, an equation for optimal expected overhead is derived and a coding scheme that produces optimal codes is presented. Algorithms for generating optimal codes for access on a busy channel are discussed. Suboptimal schemes are found that perform in a nearly optimal fashion. The method is shown to be superior in performance to previously developed conflict-free channel access schemes.

    An efficient solution is proposed in this article for the channel estimation in time division duplex (TDD) mode wireless communication systems. In the proposed solution, the characteristics of fading channels in TDD mode systems are fully exploited to estimate the path delay of the fading channel.The corresponding amplitude is estimated using the minimum mean square error (MMSE) criterion. As a result, it is shown that the proposed novel solution is more accurate and efficient than the traditional solution, and the improvement is beneficial to the performance of Joint Detection.

    Full Text Available In this paper, three beamforming design are considered for multi user MIMO system. First, transmit beamformers are fixed and the receive (RX beamformers are calculated. Transmit beamformer (TX-BFis projectedas a null space of appropriate channels. It reduces the interference for each user. Then the receiver beamformer is determined which maximize the SNR. This beamforming design provides less computation time. The second case is joint TX and RX beamformer for SNR maximization. In this transmitter and receiver beamformer are calculated using extended alternating optimization (EAO algorithm. The third one is joint transmitter and receiver beamforming for SNR and SINR maximization using EAO algorithm. This algorithm provides better error performance and sum rate performance. All the design cases are simulated by using standard multipath channel model. Our simulation results illustrate that compared to the least square design and zero forcing design, the joint TX and RX beamforming design using EAO algorithm provides faster beamforming and improved error performance and sum rate.

    In this letter, we present a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) optimal combining (OC) scheme based on alternate iteration. With the channel state information (CSI) of co-channel interferers (CCIs), this algorithm can be used in flat fading and frequency selective channels to suppress CCIs. Compared with the optimal transceiver of MIMO maximal ratio combining (MRC) systems, results of simulation show that this scheme improves the uplink transmission performance significantly.

  18. A New Achievability Scheme for the Relay Channel

    CERN Document Server

    Kang, Wei

    2007-01-01

    In this paper, we propose a new coding scheme for the general relay channel. This coding scheme is in the form of a block Markov code. The transmitter uses a superposition Markov code. The relay compresses the received signal and maps the compressed version of the received signal into a codeword conditioned on the codeword of the previous block. The receiver performs joint decoding after it has received all of the B blocks. We show that this coding scheme can be viewed as a generalization of the well-known Compress-And-Forward (CAF) scheme proposed by Cover and El Gamal. Our coding scheme provides options for preserving the correlation between the channel inputs of the transmitter and the relay, which is not possible in the CAF scheme. Thus, our proposed scheme may potentially yield a larger achievable rate than the CAF scheme.

  19. Adaptive codebook selection schemes for image classification in correlated channels

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hu, Chia Chang; Liu, Xiang Lian; Liu, Kuan-Fu

    2015-09-01

    The multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with the use of transmit and receive antenna arrays achieves diversity and array gains via transmit beamforming. Due to the absence of full channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter, the transmit beamforming vector can be quantized at the receiver and sent back to the transmitter by a low-rate feedback channel, called limited feedback beamforming. One of the key roles of Vector Quantization (VQ) is how to generate a good codebook such that the distortion between the original image and the reconstructed image is the minimized. In this paper, a novel adaptive codebook selection scheme for image classification is proposed with taking both spatial and temporal correlation inherent in the channel into consideration. The new codebook selection algorithm is developed to select two codebooks from the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) codebook, the generalized Lloyd algorithm (GLA) codebook and the Grassmannian codebook to be combined and used as candidates of the original image and the reconstructed image for image transmission. The channel is estimated and divided into four regions based on the spatial and temporal correlation of the channel and an appropriate codebook is assigned to each region. The proposed method can efficiently reduce the required information of feedback under the spatially and temporally correlated channels, where each region is adaptively. Simulation results show that in the case of temporally and spatially correlated channels, the bit-error-rate (BER) performance can be improved substantially by the proposed algorithm compared to the one with only single codebook.

    This paper addresses two important issues in channel estimation for OFDM system: the selection of the pilot tones and the interpolation methods. We first obtain the minimum number and the optimal position sets of the pilot tones, and the MSE bound of the channel estimation. Then two special schemes of channel estimate for IEEE802.11a WLAN system are proposed, which are named as LS method and interpolation method. We compare the performance by measuring MSE of the channel estimate and BER with BPSK, QPSK and 16QAM as uncoded OFDM modulations. The simulation results show that these two proposed schemes are pretty good especially for interpolation method. The MSE of these estimations are close to the bound, and the BER performance of uncoded system is very close to the case with known channel response.

    2005-01-01

    Several channel de-allocation schemes for GSM/GPRS(General Packet Radio Service) networks are proposed in this paper. For DRA (Dynamical Resource Allocation) with de-allocation mechanism, if a new voice call arrives and finds that all the channels are busy,then one of the GPRS packets which occupy more than one channel for data transmission may release a channel for the new voice call. This paper presents 5 de-allocation mechanisms, i.e.DA-RANDOM, DA-RICHEST, DA-POOREST, DA-OLDEST and DA-YOUNGEST, to select the GPRS packet for releasing the appropriate channel. Simulation results show that DAOLDEST achieves the best performance, especially in packets blocking probability, among all the de-allocation schemes. Although the performance of the proposed de-allocation schemes is not significantly different, they are all much better than that of the scheme without de-allocation.

    2005-01-01

    OFDM systems are extremely sensitive to synchronization and channel estimation imperfections. Meanwhile the timing, frequency synchronization and channel estimation may affect each other. This paper investigates a new algorithm of joint estimation utilizing one training signal which can be used in preamble-based OFDM system, such as IEEE 802.11a WLAN system. The scheme includes two stages for performance improvement and simplicity. At the first stage, the coarse timing and frequency offset and channel response are obtained. The fine synchronization and channel estimation based on the coarse stage are obtained at the second stage. The simulation results show that the channel estimation of the proposed joint estimation is quite close to the case with known sync parameters and the BER of the system is quite close to the case with known channel response.

    This paper investigates pilot-symbol-aided channel estimation/prediction for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems in fast fading environments. We first derive the design criteria of the optimal pilot blocks for energy, power and bandwidth-limited systems, respectively. Then two low-complexity channel estimation schemes are provided. Finally, we present a robust Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) channel estimator based on channel time correlation. Simulation shows the proposed MMSE estimator is considerably insensitive to channel statistics and significantly outperforms the traditional estimators with a low additional complexity in fast fading environments. By simply adjusting some parameters, the MMSE estimator can work as an estimator and a predictor simultaneously.

    2011-01-01

    We consider the problem of estimating sparse communication channels in the MIMO context. In small to medium bandwidth communications, as in the current standards for OFDM and CDMA communication systems (with bandwidth up to 20 MHz), such channels are individually sparse and at the same time share a common support set. Since the underlying physical channels are inherently continuous-time, we propose a parametric sparse estimation technique based on finite rate of innovation (FRI) principles. Parametric estimation is especially relevant to MIMO communications as it allows for a robust estimation and concise description of the channels. The core of the algorithm is a generalization of conventional spectral estimation methods to multiple input signals with common support. We show the application of our technique for channel estimation in OFDM (uniformly/contiguous DFT pilots) and CDMA downlink (Walsh-Hadamard coded schemes). In the presence of additive white Gaussian noise, theoretical lower bounds on the estimat...

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper addresses time-domain channel estimation for pilot-symbol-aided orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM systems. By using a cyclic sinc-function matrix uniquely determined by Nc transmitted subcarriers, the performance of our proposed scheme approaches perfect channel state information (CSI, within a maximum of 0.4 dB degradation, regardless of the delay spread of the channel, Doppler frequency, and subcarrier modulation. Furthermore, reducing the matrix size by splitting the dispersive channel impulse response into clusters means that the degenerated inverse matrix estimator (DIME is feasible for broadband, high-quality OFDM transmission systems. In addition to theoretical analysis on normalized mean squared error (NMSE performance of DIME, computer simulations over realistic nonsample spaced channels also showed that the DIME is robust for intersymbol interference (ISI channels and fast time-invariant channels where a minimum mean squared error (MMSE estimator does not work well.

    2003-01-01

    Delay diversity is an effective transmit diversity technique to combat adverse ef-fects of fading. Thus far, previous work in delay diversity assumed that perfect estimates ofcurrent channel fading conditions are available at the receiver and training symbols are requiredto estimate the channel from the transmitter to the receiver. However, increasing the number ofthe antennas increases the required training interval and reduces the available time within whichdata may be transmitted. Learning the channel coefficients becomes increasingly difficult for thefrequency selective channels. In this paper, with the subspace method and the delay character ofdelay diversity, a channel estimation method is proposed, which does not use training symbols. Itaddresses the transmit diversity for a frequency selective channel from a single carrier perspectivein the form of a simple equivalent fiat fading model. Monte Carlo simulations give the perfor-mance of channel estimation and the performance comparison of our channel-estimation-baseddetector with decision feedback equalization, which uses the perfect channel information.

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM has been recently applied widely in wireless communication systems, due to its high data rate, transmission capability with high bandwidth, efficiency and its robustness to multipath delay .Channel estimation is an essential problem in OFDM system. Pilot-aided channel estimation has been used; a good choice of the pilot pattern should match the channel behavior both in time and frequency domains. We explored comb pilot arrangements. The advantage for comb type pilots arrangement in channel estimation is the ability to track the variation of the channel caused by doppler frequency, it is observed that the doppler effect can be reduced, and so this will increase the system mobility. Kalman and Least Square (LS estimators have been proposed to estimate the Channel Frequency Response (CFR at the pilots location, then CFR at data sub channels are obtained by mean of interpolation between estimates at pilot locations. Different types of interpolations have been used such as; low pass interpolation; spline cubic interpolation and linear interpolation. Kalman estimation has better performance than LS estimation. The estimators perform about the same for SNR lower than 10 dB. The performances of all schemes have been compared by finding Bit Error Rate (BER, where BPSK modulation scheme was used.

    2014-12-01

    Estimation of the embedding capacity is an important problem specifically in reversible multi-pass watermarking and is required for analysis before any image can be watermarked. In this paper, we propose an efficient method for estimating the embedding capacity of a given cover image under multi-pass embedding, without actually embedding the watermark. We demonstrate this for a class of reversible watermarking schemes which operate on a disjoint group of pixels, specifically for pixel pairs. The proposed algorithm iteratively updates the co-occurrence matrix at every stage to estimate the multi-pass embedding capacity, and is much more efficient vis-a-vis actual watermarking. We also suggest an extremely efficient, pre-computable tree based implementation which is conceptually similar to the cooccurrence based method, but provides the estimates in a single iteration, requiring a complexity akin to that of single pass capacity estimation. We also provide upper bounds on the embedding capacity.We finally evaluate performance of our algorithms on recent watermarking algorithms.

  11. Over-sampling basis expansion model aided channel estimation for OFDM systems with ICI

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2008-01-01

    The rapid variation of channel can induce the intercarrier interference in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Intercarrier interference will significantly increase the difficulty of OFDM channel estimation because too many channel coefficients need be estimated. In this article, a novel channel estimator is proposed to resolve the above problem. This estimator consists of two parts: the channel parameter estimation unit (CPEU), which is used to estimate the number of channel taps and the multipath time delays, and the channel coefficient estimation unit (CCEU), which is used to estimate the channel coefficients by using the estimated channel parameters provided by CPEU. In CCEU, the over-sampling basis expansion model is resorted to solve the problem that a large number of channel coefficients need to be estimated. Finally, simulation results are given to scale the performance of the proposed scheme.

    In this paper, the channel estimation techniques for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems based on pilot arrangement are studied and we apply Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes to the system of IEEE 802.16a with OFDM modulation. First investigated is the influence of channel estimation schemes on LDPC-code based OFDM system in static and multipath fading channels. According to the different propagation environments in 802.16a system, a dynamic channel estimation scheme is proposed.A good irregular LDPC code is designed with code rate of 1/2 and code length of 1200. Simulation results show that the performance of LDPC coded OFDM system proposed in this paper is better than that of the convolution Turbo coded OFDM system proposed in IEEE standard 802.16a.

    This paper derives the channel estimation of a discrete cosine transform-(DCT-) based orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) system over a frequency-selective multipath fading channel. Channel estimation has been proved to improve system throughput and performance by allowing for coherent demodulation. Pilot-aided methods are traditionally used to learn the channel response. Least square (LS) and mean square error estimators (MMSE) are investigated. We also study a compressed sensing (CS) based channel estimation, which takes the sparse property of wireless channel into account. Simulation results have shown that the CS based channel estimation is expected to have better performance than LS. However MMSE can achieve optimal performance because of prior knowledge of the channel statistic.

  14. A Novel Pilot Expansion Approach for MIMO Channel Estimation

    Ming Fei SIYAU

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available A training-based MIMO channel estimation scheme is presented to operate in severe frequency and time selective fading channels. Besides the new pilot bits designed from the ‘Paley-Hadamard’ matrix to exploit its orthogonal and ‘Toeplitz-like’ structures and minimising its pilot length, a novel pilot expansion technique is proposed to estimate the length of the channel impulse response, by flexibly extending its pilot length as required in order to capture the number of multipath existed within the MIMO channel. The pilot expansion can also help to deduce the initial channel variation and its Doppler rate which can be subsequently applied for MIMO channel tracking using decision feedback Kalman filter during the data payload.

    2011-11-01

    In this paper, a method is proposed to compress multichannel electroencephalographic (EEG) signals in a scalable fashion. Correlation between EEG channels is exploited through clustering using a k-means method. Representative channels for each of the clusters are encoded individually while other channels are encoded differentially, i.e., with respect to their respective cluster representatives. The compression is performed using the embedded zero-tree wavelet encoding adapted to 1-D signals. Simulations show that the scalable features of the scheme lead to a flexible quality/rate tradeoff, without requiring detailed EEG signal modeling.

    Channel estimation using pilot is common used in OFDM system. The pilot is usually time division multiplexed with the informative sequence. One of the main drawbacks is bandwidth losing. In this paper, a new method was proposed to perform channel estimation in OFDM system. The pilot is arithmetically added to the output of OFDM modulator. Receiver uses the hidden pilot to get an accurate estimation of the channel. Then pilot is removed after channel estimation. The Cramer-Rao lower bound for this method was deprived. The performance of the algorithm is then shown. Compared with traditional methods, the proposed algorithm increases the bandwidth efficiency dramatically.

    Massive MIMO systems have got extraordinary spectral efficiency using a large number of base station antennas, but it is in the challenge of pilot contamination using the aligned pilots.To address this issue, a selective transmission is proposed using time-shifted pilots with cell grouping, where the strong interfering users in downlink transmission cells are temporally stopped during the pilots transmission in uplink cells.Based on the spatial characteristics of physical channel models, the strong interfering users are selected to minimize the inter-cell interference and the cell grouping is designed to have less temporally stopped users within a smaller area.Furthermore, a Kalman estima-tor is proposed to reduce the unexpected effect of residual interferences in channel estimation, which exploits both the spatial-time correlation of channels and the share of the interference information. The numerical results show that our scheme significantly improves the channel estimation accuracy and the data rates.

    Full Text Available Future mobile communication networks will require enhanced network efficiency and reduced system overhead. Research on Blind Interference Alignment and Topological Interference Management (TIM has shown that optimal Degrees of Freedom can be achieved, in the absence of Channel State Information at the transmitters. Moreover, the recently emerged Non- Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA scheme suggests a different multiple access approach, compared to the orthogonal methods employed in 4G, resulting in high capacity gains. Our contribution is a hybrid TIM-NOMA scheme in K-user cells, where users are divided into T groups. By superimposing users in the power domain, we introduce a two-stage decoding process, managing “inter-group” interference based on the TIM principles, and “intra-group” interference based on Successful Interference Cancellation, as proposed by NOMA. We show that the hybrid scheme can improve the sum rate by at least 100% compared to Time Division Multiple Access, for high SNR values.

    Simulations of water flow in channel networks require estimated values of roughness for all the individual channel segments that make up a network. When the number of individual channel segments is large, the parameter calibration workload is substantial and a high level of uncertainty in estimated roughness cannot be avoided. In this study, all the individual channel segments are graded according to the factors determining the value of roughness. It is assumed that channel segments with the same grade have the same value of roughness. Based on observed hydrological data, an optimal model for roughness estimation is built. The procedure of solving the optimal problem using the optimal model is described. In a test of its efficacy, this estimation method was applied successfully in the simulation of tidal water flow in a large complicated channel network in the lower reach of the Yangtze River in China.

    Full Text Available Multiple transmit and receive antennas can be used to form multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO channels to increase the capacity by a factor of the minimum number of transmit and receive antennas. In this paper, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM for MIMO channels (MIMO-OFDM is considered for wideband transmission to mitigate intersymbol interference and enhance system capacity. In this paper performance analysis of channel estimation through different algorithms for estimating channel using BPSK modulation scheme are investigated for different channel delay spread. The estimation of channel at pilot frequencies is based on Least Square, Minimum mean square channel estimation algorithm. We have compared the performances of these two channel estimation algorithm by measuring bit error rate Vs SNR. Minimum Mean Square estimation has been shown to perform much better than Least Square channel estimation algorithm.

    Full Text Available A channel and delay estimation algorithm for both positive and negative delay, based on the distributed Alamouti scheme, has been recently discussed for base-station–based asynchronous cooperative systems in frequency-flat fading channels. This paper extends the algorithm, the maximum likelihood estimator, to work in frequency-selective fading channels. The minimum mean square error (MMSE performance of channel estimation for both packet schemes and normal schemes is discussed in this paper. The symbol error rate (SER performance of equalisation and detection for both time-reversal space-time block code (STBC and single-carrier STBC is also discussed in this paper. The MMSE simulation results demonstrated the superior performance of the packet scheme over the normal scheme with an improvement in performance of up to 6 dB when feedback was used in the frequency-selective channel at a MSE of 3 x 10–2. The SER simulation results showed that, although both the normal and packet schemes achieved similar diversity orders, the packet scheme demonstrated a 1 dB coding gain over the normal scheme at a SER of 10–5. Finally, the SER simulations showed that the frequency-selective fading system outperformed the frequency-flat fading system.

    Full Text Available Nowadays, WiFi is mostly operating in 2.4 GHz band, which allows only 3 non-overlapping channels. For deployment in building it could be a problem to repeat only three channels. In this paper we compare standard three channel scheme (channels 1, 6 and 11 with four channel schemes. The most promising scheme is with channels 1, 5, 9 and 13, which involves overlapping channels, but the overlap is minimal and in certain distances (power levels is possible to use this scheme. The problem could be in some countries which do not allow usage of 13 channels. We also compare other schemes, with overlapping channels, but they have a much lower throughput than scheme with channels 1, 5, 9 and 13.

    In many channel measurement applications, one needs to estimate some characteristics of the channels based on a limited set of measurements. This is mainly due to the highly time varying characteristics of the channel. In this contribution, it will be shown how free probability can be used for channel capacity estimation in MIMO systems. Free probability has already been applied in various application fields such as digital communications, nuclear physics and mathematical finance, and has been shown to be an invaluable tool for describing the asymptotic behaviour of many systems when the dimensions of the system get large (i.e. the number of antennas). In particular, introducing the notion of free deconvolution, we provide hereafter an asymptotically (in the number of antennas) unbiased capacity estimator (w.r.t. the number of observations) for MIMO channels impaired with noise. Another unbiased estimator (for any number of observations) is also constructed by slightly modifying the free probability based est...

    In this paper, we have evaluated various methods of time-frequency-selective fading channels estimation in OFDM system and some of them improved under time varying conditions. So, these different techniques will be studied through different algorithms and for different schemes of modulations (16 QAM, BPSK, QPSK, ...). Channel estimation gathers different schemes and algorithms, some of them are dedicated for slowly time varying (such as block type arrangement insertion, Bayesian Cramer-Rao Bound, Kalman estimator, Subspace estimator, ...) whereas the others concern highly time varying channels (comb type insertion, ...). There are others methods that are just suitable for stationary channels like blind or semi blind estimators. For this aim, diverse algorithms were used for these schemes such as Least Squares estimator LS, Least Minimum Squares LMS, Minimum Mean-Square-Error MMSE, Linear Minimum Mean-Square-Error LMMSE, Maximum Likelihood ML, ... to refine estimators shown previously.

  5. Low-sampling-rate ultra-wideband channel estimation using equivalent-time sampling

    KAUST Repository

    Ballal, Tarig

    2014-09-01

    In this paper, a low-sampling-rate scheme for ultra-wideband channel estimation is proposed. The scheme exploits multiple observations generated by transmitting multiple pulses. In the proposed scheme, P pulses are transmitted to produce channel impulse response estimates at a desired sampling rate, while the ADC samples at a rate that is P times slower. To avoid loss of fidelity, the number of sampling periods (based on the desired rate) in the inter-pulse interval is restricted to be co-prime with P. This condition is affected when clock drift is present and the transmitted pulse locations change. To handle this case, and to achieve an overall good channel estimation performance, without using prior information, we derive an improved estimator based on the bounded data uncertainty (BDU) model. It is shown that this estimator is related to the Bayesian linear minimum mean squared error (LMMSE) estimator. Channel estimation performance of the proposed sub-sampling scheme combined with the new estimator is assessed in simulation. The results show that high reduction in sampling rate can be achieved. The proposed estimator outperforms the least squares estimator in almost all cases, while in the high SNR regime it also outperforms the LMMSE estimator. In addition to channel estimation, a synchronization method is also proposed that utilizes the same pulse sequence used for channel estimation. © 2014 IEEE.

  6. Analysis and Design of Timing Recovery Schemes for DMT Systems over Indoor Power-Line Channels

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available Discrete multitone (DMT modulation is a suitable technique to cope with main impairments of broadband indoor power-line channels: spectral selectivity and cyclic time variations. Due to the high-density constellations employed to achieve the required bit-rates, synchronization issues became an important concern in these scenarios. This paper analyzes the performance of a conventional DMT timing recovery scheme designed for linear time-invariant (LTI channels when employed over indoor power lines. The influence of the channel cyclic short-term variations and the sampling jitter on the system performance is assessed. Bit-rate degradation due to timing errors is evaluated in a set of measured channels. It is shown that this synchronization mechanism limits the system performance in many residential channels. Two improvements are proposed to avoid this end: a new phase error estimator that takes into account the short-term changes in the channel response, and the introduction of notch filters in the timing recovery loop. Simulations confirm that the new scheme eliminates the bit-rate loss in most situations.

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available The prominence of the wireless communication has been urging the monotonically increasing demand of security and privacy. In wireless systems, the notion of perfect secrecy of information with respect to illegitimate nodes can be ensured via physical layer security (PLS techniques. Unfortunately, they can be made less effective if source- eavesdropper wiretap channel is better than the main source-receiver channel. The various node cooperation schemes can be employed to combat this limitation where a relay node assists the communication to improve the performance significantly. In this paper, a four node wireless communication system consisting of a source, a destination, a relay and an eavesdropper as wire-tapper has been considered. The performance of the traditional cooperation schemes in terms of secrecy rate has been investigated with a different scenario where relay node helps the eavesdropper to deteriorate the secrecy rate. In addition, since legitimate receiver can overhear the transmission of relay, it favours the achievable secrecy rate. We formulate an analytical expression of conditional secrecy outage probability for the investigated system. From the obtained simulation results, it has been observed that secrecy rate is monotonically increases with path loss index. Furthermore, the proper selection of the system parameters leads to enhance the secrecy performance of the system even if relay pertains to degrade the performance.

    In this paper, a method for multi-channel pitch estimation is proposed. The method is a maximum likelihood estimator and is based on a parametric model where the signals in the various channels share the same fundamental frequency but can have different amplitudes, phases, and noise characteristics....... This essentially means that the model allows for different conditions in the various channels, like different signal-to-noise ratios, microphone characteristics and reverberation. Moreover, the method does not assume that a certain array structure is used but rather relies on a more general model and is hence...

    This paper proposed a method for blind estimation of underwater channels in shallow water environment by using received data at a single hydrophone or from single beam.First, the received signal is used for source signal reconstruction by means of signal-dependent TF (Time-Frequency) distribution, in association with instantaneous frequency estimation and TF inversion. Then the shallow-water channel estimation is achieved via WRELAX technique by use of the received signal and the estimated source signal. Finally, the results of numerical simulation and experimental test from real data taken in South China Sea trial have proved satisfactory. It is shown that the proposed method is useful for underwater channel estimation.

    Full Text Available Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs are getting more popularity due to the potential Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS technology. It provides many efficient network services such as safety warnings (collision warning, entertainment (video and voice, maps based guidance, and emergency information. VANETs most commonly use Road Side Units (RSUs and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V referred to as Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I mode for data accessing. IEEE 802.11p standard which was originally designed for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs is modified to address such type of communication. However, IEEE 802.11p uses Distributed Coordination Function (DCF for communication between wireless nodes. Therefore, it does not perform well for high mobility networks such as VANETs. Moreover, in RSU mode timely provision of data/services under high density of vehicles is challenging. In this paper, we propose a RSU-based efficient channel access scheme for VANETs under high traffic and mobility. In the proposed scheme, the contention window is dynamically varied according to the times (deadlines the vehicles are going to leave the RSU range. The vehicles with shorter time deadlines are served first and vice versa. Simulation is performed by using the Network Simulator (NS-3 v. 3.6. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme performs better in terms of throughput, backoff rate, RSU response time, and fairness.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available In Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A, the signal quality in a wireless channel is estimated based on the channel quality measurements. The measurement results are used to select suitable modulation and coding scheme for each transmission, feedback, and processing delay, which can cause a mismatch between channel quality information (CQI and current channel state at the base station. However, prospect delays in the reception of such CQI may lead to a system performance degradation. This study analyzes the impact of CQI feedback delay on joint user scheduling (JUS scheme and separated random user scheduling (SRUS scheme in LTE-A system over carrier aggregation. The analysis will be compared with the system having delayed channel and perfect knowledge at different deployment scenario. We will study the throughput performance of both scheduling schemes with different deployment scenario, and then recommend the suitable deployment scenario to keep the desired QoS for a specific number of users. Results show that, in main beam directed at sector boundaries and diverse coverage, JUS scheme performs better than SRUS, which can justify the intensive use of user equipment power and extra control signaling overhead.

    2015-12-01

    This paper proposes a spatially common sparsity based adaptive channel estimation and feedback scheme for frequency division duplex based massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems, which adapts training overhead and pilot design to reliably estimate and feed back the downlink channel state information (CSI) with significantly reduced overhead. Specifically, a non-orthogonal downlink pilot design is first proposed, which is very different from standard orthogonal pilots. By exploiting the spatially common sparsity of massive MIMO channels, a compressive sensing (CS) based adaptive CSI acquisition scheme is proposed, where the consumed time slot overhead only adaptively depends on the sparsity level of the channels. Additionally, a distributed sparsity adaptive matching pursuit algorithm is proposed to jointly estimate the channels of multiple subcarriers. Furthermore, by exploiting the temporal channel correlation, a closed-loop channel tracking scheme is provided, which adaptively designs the non-orthogonal pilot according to the previous channel estimation to achieve an enhanced CSI acquisition. Finally, we generalize the results of the multiple-measurement-vectors case in CS and derive the Cramer-Rao lower bound of the proposed scheme, which enlightens us to design the non-orthogonal pilot signals for the improved performance. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme outperforms its counterparts, and it is capable of approaching the performance bound.

    Methods to generate private keys based on wireless channel characteristics have been proposed as an alternative to standard key-management schemes. In this work, we discuss past work in the field and offer a generalized scheme for the generation of private keys using uncorrelated channels in multiple domains. Proposed cognitive enhancements measure channel characteristics, to dynamically change transmission and reception parameters as well as estimate private key randomness and expiration times. Finally, results are presented on the implementation of a system for the generation of private keys for cryptographic communications using channel impulse-response estimation at 60 GHz. The testbed is composed of commercial millimeter-wave VubIQ transceivers, laboratory equipment, and software implemented in MATLAB. Novel cognitive enhancements are demonstrated, using channel estimation to dynamically change system parameters and estimate cryptographic key strength. We show for a complex channel that secret key generation can be accomplished on the order of 100 kb/s.

  15. On the ergodic secrecy capacity of the wiretap channel under imperfect main channel estimation

    KAUST Repository

    Rezki, Zouheir

    2011-11-01

    The ergodic secrecy capacity of the wiretap channel is known when the main channel (between the transmitter and the legitimate receiver) state information (CSI) is perfect at the transmitter and the coherence period is sufficiently large to enable random coding arguments in each block. In a fast fading scenario, when the codeword length spans many coherence periods, the secrecy capacity is still not known. In this paper, we present a framework that characterizes this secrecy capacity under imperfect main channel estimation at the transmitter. Inner and outer bounds on the ergodic secrecy capacity are derived for a class of independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) fading channels. The achievable rate is a simple on-off scheme using a Gaussian input. The upper bound is obtained using an appropriate correlation scheme of the main and the eavesdropper channels. The upper and the lower bounds coincide with recently derived ones in the perfect main CSI extreme. Furthermore, the lower bound matches the upper bound in no main CSI extreme, where the secrecy capacity is equal to zero. Numerical results are provided for independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) Rayleigh fading channels. © 2011 IEEE.

    2014-10-01

    We study the secrecy capacity of fast fading channels under imperfect main channel (between the transmitter and the legitimate receiver) estimation at the transmitter. Lower and upper bounds on the ergodic secrecy capacity are derived for a class of independent identically distributed (i.i.d.) fading channels. The achievable rate follows from a standard wiretap code in which a simple on-off power control is employed along with a Gaussian input. The upper bound is obtained using an appropriate correlation scheme of the main and eavesdropper channels and is the best known upper bound so far. The upper and lower bounds coincide with recently derived ones in case of perfect main CSI. Furthermore, the upper bound is tight in case of no main CSI, where the secrecy capacity is equal to zero. Asymptotic analysis at high and low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is also given. At high SNR, we show that the capacity is bounded by providing upper and lower bounds that depend on the channel estimation error. At low SNR, however, we prove that the secrecy capacity is asymptotically equal to the capacity of the main channel as if there were no secrecy constraint. Numerical results are provided for i.i.d. Rayleigh fading channels.

    Full Text Available The use of reciprocal and random properties of wireless channels for the generation of secret keys is a highly attractive option for many applications that operate in a mobile environment. In recent years, several practice-oriented protocols have been proposed, but unfortunately without a sufficient and consistent security analysis and without a fair comparison between each other. This can be attributed to the fact that until now neither a common evaluation basis, nor a security metric in an on-line scenario (e.g., with changing channel properties was proposed. We attempt to close this gap by presenting test vectors based on a large measurement campaign, an extensive comparative evaluation framework (including ten protocols as well as new on-line entropy estimators, and a rigorous experimental security analysis. Further, we answer for the first time a variety of security and performance related questions about the behavior of 10 channel-based key establishment schemes from the literature.

    2014-01-22

    This paper considers the optimal estimation of linear systems over unreliable communication channels with random delays. In this work, it is assumed that the system to be estimated is far away from the filter. The observations of the system are capsulized without time stamp and then transmitted to the network node at which the filter is located. The probabilities of time delays are assumed to be known. The event-driven estimation scheme is applied in this paper and the estimate of the states is updated only at each time instant when any measurement arrives. To capture the feature of communication, the system considered is augmented, and the arrived measurements are regarded as the uncertain observations of the augmented system. The corresponding optimal estimation algorithm is proposed and additionally, a numerical simulation represents the performance of this work. © 2014 The authors.

    We determine the minimal experimental resources that ensure a unique solution in the estimation of trace-preserving quantum channels with both direct and convex optimization methods. A convenient parametrization of the constrained set is used to develop a globally converging Newton-type algorithm that ensures a physically admissible solution to the problem. Numerical simulations are provided to support the results, and indicate that the minimal experimental setting is sufficient to guarantee good estimates.

    Full Text Available Multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO systems formed by multiple transmit and receive antennas can improve performance and increase capacity of wireless communication systems. Diagonal Bell Laboratories Layered Space-Time (D-BLAST structure offers a low-complexity solution for realizing the attractive capacity of MIMO systems. However, for broadband wireless communications, channel is frequency-selective and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM has to be used with MIMO techniques to reduce system complexity. In this paper, we investigate D-BLAST for MIMO-OFDM systems. We develop a layerwise channel estimation algorithm which is robust to channel variation by exploiting the characteristic of the D-BLAST structure. Further improvement is made by subspace tracking to considerably reduce the error floor. Simulation results show that the layerwise estimators require 1 dB less signal-to-noise ratio (SNR than the traditional blockwise estimator for a word error rate (WER of when Doppler frequency is 40 Hz. Among the layerwise estimators, the subspace-tracking estimator provides a 0.8 dB gain for WER with 200 Hz Doppler frequency compared with the DFT-based estimator.

    A blind adaptive scheme is proposed for joint maximum likelihood (ML) channel estimation and data detection of singleinput multiple-output (SIMO) systems. The joint ML optimisation over channel and data is decomposed into an iterative optimisation loop. An efficient global optimisation algorithm called the repeated weighted boosting search is employed at the upper level to optimally identify the unknown SIMO channel model, and the Viterbi algorithm is used at the lower level to produce the maximum likelihood sequence estimation of the unknown data sequence. A simulation example is used to demonstrate the effectiveness of this joint ML optimisation scheme for blind adaptive SIMO systems.

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available The application of the expectation-maximization (EM algorithm to channel estimation results in a well-known iterative channel-and-symbol estimator (ICSE. The EM-ICSE iterates between a symbol estimator based on the forward-backward recursion (BCJR equalizer and a channel estimator, and may provide approximate maximum-likelihood blind or semiblind channel estimates. Nevertheless, the EM-ICSE has high complexity, and it is prone to misconvergence. In this paper, we propose the extended-window (EW estimator, a novel channel estimator for ICSE that can be used with any soft-output symbol estimator. Therefore, the symbol estimator may be chosen according to performance or complexity specifications. We show that the EW-ICSE, an ICSE that uses the EW estimator and the BCJR equalizer, is less complex and less susceptible to misconvergence than the EM-ICSE. Simulation results reveal that the EW-ICSE may converge faster than the EM-ICSE.

    2015-01-19

    Due to their increasing dissemination, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have become the target of more and more sophisticated attacks, even capable of circumventing both attack detection and prevention mechanisms. This may cause WSN users, who totally trust these security mechanisms, to think that a sensor reading is secure, even when an adversary has corrupted it. For that reason, a scheme capable of estimating the security level (SL) that these mechanisms provide to sensor data is needed, so that users can be aware of the actual security state of this data and can make better decisions on its use. However, existing security estimation schemes proposed for WSNs fully ignore detection mechanisms and analyze solely the security provided by prevention mechanisms. In this context, this work presents the sensor data security estimator (SDSE), a new comprehensive security estimation scheme for WSNs. SDSE is designed for estimating the sensor data security level based on security metrics that analyze both attack prevention and detection mechanisms. In order to validate our proposed scheme, we have carried out extensive simulations that show the high accuracy of SDSE estimates.

However, existing security estimation schemes proposed for WSNs fully ignore detection mechanisms and analyze solely the security provided by prevention mechanisms. In this context, this work presents the sensor data security estimator (SDSE), a new comprehensive security estimation scheme for WSNs. SDSE is designed for estimating the sensor data security level based on security metrics that analyze both attack prevention and detection mechanisms. In order to validate our proposed scheme, we have carried out extensive simulations that show the high accuracy of SDSE estimates. PMID:25608215

    A multi-carrier chaotic shift keying(MC-CSK) communication scheme with low probability of interception(LPI) is proposed in this article. We apply chaotic spreading sequences in the frequency domain, mapping a different chip of a chaotic sequence to an individual orthogonal frequency division multiplexing(OFDM) subcarrier. In each block size of $M$ OFDM symbols, we use one pilot OFDM symbol inserted time-spaced in all-frequency to transmit the reference chaotic signal and use the other M-1 OFDM symbols to transmit the information-bearing signals each spreaded by the reference chaotic signal. At the receiver, we construct a differential detector after DFT and recover the information bits from the correlations between the pilot OFDM symbol and the other M-1 OFDM symbols in each block size of M. Performance analysis and computer simulations show that the MC-CSK outperforms differential chaos shift keying(DCSK) in AWGN channels with high bandwidth efficiency for the block size of M=2 and that the MC-CSK exploits effectively the frequent diversity of the multipath channel.

    2010-01-01

    Optimal and suboptimal decentralized estimators in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) over orthogonal multiple-access fading channels are studied in this paper. Considering multiple-bit quantization before digital transmission, we develop maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs) with both known and unknown channel state information (CSI). When training symbols are available, we derive a MLE that is a special case of the MLE with unknown CSI. It implicitly uses the training symbols to estimate the channel coefficients and exploits the estimated CSI in an optimal way. To reduce the computational complexity, we propose suboptimal estimators. These estimators exploit both signal and data level redundant information to improve the estimation performance. The proposed MLEs reduce to traditional fusion based or diversity based estimators when communications or observations are perfect. By introducing a general message function, the proposed estimators can be applied when various analog or digital transmission schemes are u...

  12. Energy-efficient power allocation of two-hop cooperative systems with imperfect channel estimation

    2015-06-08

    Recently, much attention has been paid to the green design of wireless communication systems using energy efficiency (EE) metrics that should capture all energy consumption sources to deliver the required data. In this paper, we formulate an accurate EE metric for cooperative two-hop systems that use the amplify-and-forward relaying scheme. Different from the existing research that assumes the availability of perfect channel state information (CSI) at the communication cooperative nodes, we assume a practical scenario, where training pilots are used to estimate the channels. The estimated CSI can be used to adapt the available resources of the proposed system in order to maximize the EE. Two estimation strategies are assumed namely disintegrated channel estimation, which assumes the availability of channel estimator at the relay, and cascaded channel estimation, where the relay is not equipped with channel estimator and only forwards the received pilot(s) in order to let the destination estimate the cooperative link. The channel estimation cost is reflected on the EE metric by including the estimation error in the signal-to-noise term and considering the energy consumption during the estimation phase. Based on the formulated EE metric, we propose an energy-aware power allocation algorithm to maximize the EE of the cooperative system with channel estimation. Furthermore, we study the impact of the estimation parameters on the optimized EE performance via simulation examples.

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM is well-known as a high-bit-rate transmission technique, but the Doppler frequency offset due to the high speed movement destroys the orthogonality of the subcarriers resulting in the intercarrier interference (ICI, and degrades the performance of the system at the same time. In this paper a novel OFDM channel estimation algorithm with ICI mitigation based on the ICI self-cancellation scheme is proposed. With this method, a more accurate channel estimation is obtained by comb-type double pilots and then ICI coefficients can be obtained to mitigate the ICI on each subcarrier under the assumption that the channel impulse response (CIR varies in a linear fashion. The theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the bit error rate (BER and spectral efficiency performances are improved significantly under high-speed mobility conditions (350 km/h – 500 km/h in comparison to ZHAO’s ICI self-cancellation scheme.

    A new achievability scheme for the compound channel with discrete memoryless (DM) state noncausally available at the encoder is established. Achievability is proved using superposition coding, Marton coding, joint typicality encoding, and indirect decoding. The scheme is shown to achieve strictly higher rate than the straightforward extension of the Gelfand-Pinsker coding scheme for a single DMC with DM state, and is optimal for some classes of channels.

    2010-01-01

    We present a general problem formulation for optimal parameter estimation based on quantized observations, with application to antenna array communication and processing (channel estimation, time-of-arrival (TOA) and direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation). The work is of interest in the case when low resolution A/D-converters (ADCs) have to be used to enable higher sampling rate and to simplify the hardware. An Expectation-Maximization (EM) based algorithm is proposed for solving this problem in a general setting. Besides, we derive the Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) and discuss the effects of quantization and the optimal choice of the ADC characteristic. Numerical and analytical analysis reveals that reliable estimation may still be possible even when the quantization is very coarse.

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available A novel threshold computation method for pilot symbol assisted iterative channel estimation in OFDM systems is considered. As the bits are transmitted in packets, the proposed technique is based on calculating a particular threshold for each data packet in order to select the reliable decoder output symbols to improve the channel estimation performance. Iteratively, additional pilot symbols are established according to the threshold and the channel is re-estimated with the new pilots inserted to the known channel estimation pilot set. The proposed threshold calculation method for selecting additional pilots performs better than non-iterative channel estimation, no threshold and fixed threshold techniques in poor HF channel simulations.

    2007-01-01

    It has been shown lately the optimality of uncoded transmission in estimating Gaussian sources over homogeneous/symmetric Gaussian multiple access channels (MAC) using multiple sensors. It remains, however, unclear whether it still holds for any arbitrary networks and/or with high channel signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and high signal-to-measurement-noise ratio (SMNR). In this paper, we first provide a joint source and channel coding approach in estimating Gaussian sources over Gaussian MAC channels, as well as its sufficient and necessary condition in restoring Gaussian sources with a prescribed distortion value. An interesting relationship between our proposed joint approach with a more straightforward separate source and channel coding scheme is then established. We then formulate constrained power minimization problems and transform them to relaxed convex geometric programming problems, whose numerical results exhibit that either separate or uncoded scheme becomes dominant over a linear topology network.

  2. Improvement Schemes for Indoor Mobile Location Estimation: A Survey

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Location estimation is significant in mobile and ubiquitous computing systems. The complexity and smaller scale of the indoor environment impose a great impact on location estimation. The key of location estimation lies in the representation and fusion of uncertain information from multiple sources. The improvement of location estimation is a complicated and comprehensive issue. A lot of research has been done to address this issue. However, existing research typically focuses on certain aspects of the problem and specific methods. This paper reviews mainstream schemes on improving indoor location estimation from multiple levels and perspectives by combining existing works and our own working experiences. Initially, we analyze the error sources of common indoor localization techniques and provide a multilayered conceptual framework of improvement schemes for location estimation. This is followed by a discussion of probabilistic methods for location estimation, including Bayes filters, Kalman filters, extended Kalman filters, sigma-point Kalman filters, particle filters, and hidden Markov models. Then, we investigate the hybrid localization methods, including multimodal fingerprinting, triangulation fusing multiple measurements, combination of wireless positioning with pedestrian dead reckoning (PDR, and cooperative localization. Next, we focus on the location determination approaches that fuse spatial contexts, namely, map matching, landmark fusion, and spatial model-aided methods. Finally, we present the directions for future research.

  3. A training-based scheme for communicating over unknown channels with feedback

    2009-01-01

    We consider communication with noiseless feedback over a channel that is either BSC(p) or BSC(1-p); neither the transmitter nor the receiver know which one. The parameter $p \\in [0, 1/2]$ is known to both. We propose a variable length training-based scheme for this channel. The error exponent of this scheme is within a constant fraction of the best possible error exponent. Thus, contrary to popular belief, variable length training-based schemes need not have poor error exponents. Moreover, training-based schemes can preserve the main advantage of feedback -- an error exponent with non-zero slope at rates close to capacity.

  4. A Fairness-Based Access Control Scheme to Optimize IPTV Fast Channel Changing

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available IPTV services are typically featured with a longer channel changing delay compared to the conventional TV systems. The major contributor to this lies in the time spent on intraframe (I-frame acquisition during channel changing. Currently, most widely adopted fast channel changing (FCC methods rely on promptly transmitting to the client (conducting the channel changing a retained I-frame of the targeted channel as a separate unicasting stream. However, this I-frame acceleration mechanism has an inherent scalability problem due to the explosions of channel changing requests during commercial breaks. In this paper, we propose a fairness-based admission control (FAC scheme for the original I-frame acceleration mechanism to enhance its scalability by decreasing the bandwidth demands. Based on the channel changing history of every client, the FAC scheme can intelligently decide whether or not to conduct the I-frame acceleration for each channel change request. Comprehensive simulation experiments demonstrate the potential of our proposed FAC scheme to effectively optimize the scalability of the I-frame acceleration mechanism, particularly in commercial breaks. Meanwhile, the FAC scheme only slightly increases the average channel changing delay by temporarily disabling FCC (i.e., I-frame acceleration for the clients who are addicted to frequent channel zapping.

Applied to tissue elasticity imaging, this leads to the development of a specific displacement estimation technique that is capable of accurate estimation of two components of the displacement. The mean standard deviation for the axial displacement estimates is 0.0219 times the wavelength of the axial oscillations λz, and for the lateral estimates, it is equal to 0.0164 times the wavelength of the lateral oscillations λx. The method is presented and its feasibility is clearly established by a simulation work.

  13. Performance Analysis of Amplify-and-Forward Two-Way Relaying with Co-Channel Interference and Channel Estimation Error

    KAUST Repository

    Liang Yang,

    2013-06-01

    In this paper, we consider the performance of a two-way amplify-and-forward relaying network (AF TWRN) in the presence of unequal power co-channel interferers (CCI). Specifically, we first consider AF TWRN with an interference-limited relay and two noisy-nodes with channel estimation errors and CCI. We derive the approximate signal-to-interference plus noise ratio expressions and then use them to evaluate the outage probability, error probability, and achievable rate. Subsequently, to investigate the joint effects of the channel estimation error and CCI on the system performance, we extend our analysis to a multiple-relay network and derive several asymptotic performance expressions. For comparison purposes, we also provide the analysis for the relay selection scheme under the total power constraint at the relays. For AF TWRN with channel estimation error and CCI, numerical results show that the performance of the relay selection scheme is not always better than that of the all-relay participating case. In particular, the relay selection scheme can improve the system performance in the case of high power levels at the sources and small powers at the relays.

  14. An Improved Multicell MMSE Channel Estimation in a Massive MIMO System

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ke Li

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Massive MIMO is a promising technology to improve both the spectrum efficiency and the energy efficiency. The key problem that impacts the throughput of a massive MIMO system is the pilot contamination due to the nonorthogonality of the pilot sequences in different cells. Conventional channel estimation schemes cannot mitigate this problem effectively, and the computational complexity is increasingly becoming larger in views of the large number of antennas employed in a massive MIMO system. Furthermore, the channel estimation is always carried out with some ideal assumptions such as the complete knowledge of large-scale fading. In this paper, a new channel estimation scheme is proposed by utilizing interference cancellation and joint processing. Highly interfering users in neighboring cells are identified based on the estimation of large-scale fading and then included in the joint channel processing; this achieves a compromise between the effectiveness and efficiency of the channel estimation at a reasonable computational cost, and leads to an improvement in the overall system performance. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.

    2006-01-01

    The paper deals with two-dimensional (2D) channel estimation of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system in slow fading wireless channel. We concentrate on two channel estimation schemes: Least Square (LS)+Weighted BiLinear (WBL) and LS+Linear Minimum Mean-Squared Error (LMMSE) where the first method is proposed in this paper. After theory analysis and simulation in Typical Urban (TU) channel, we find that LS+LMMSE achieves the optimal performance by exploiting prior knowledge of channel whereas LS+WBL, without requiring channel knowledge and with only half of the computational amount of LS+LMMSE, approaches LS+LMMSE in Bit Error Ratio (BER) performance when the distance of two adjoining pilot symbols along frequency direction is sufficiently small. This makes LS+WBL very suitable for wideband wireless applications.

    2006-01-01

    Differential unitary space-time modulation (DUSTM), which obtains full transmit diversity in slowly flat-fading channels without channel state information, has generated significant interests recently. To combat frequency-selective fading, DUSTM has been applied to each subcarrier of an OFDM system and DUSTM-OFDM system was proposed. Both DUSTM and DUSTM-OFDM, however, are designed for slowly fading channels and suffer performance deterioration in fast fading channels. In this paper, two novel differential unitary space-time modulation schemes are proposed for fast fading channels. For fast flat-fading channels, a sub-matrix interleaved DUSTM (SMI-DUSTM) scheme is proposed, in which matrix-segmentation and sub-matrix based interleaving are introduced into DUSTM system. For fast frequency-selective fading channels, a differential unitary space-frequency modulation (DUSFM) scheme is proposed, in which existing unitary space-time codes are employed across transmit antennas and OFDM subcarriers simultaneously and differential modulation is performed between two adjacent OFDM blocks. Compared with DUSTM and DUSTM-OFDM schemes, SMI-DUSTM and DUSFM-OFDM are more robust to fast channel fading with low decoding complexity, which is demonstrated by performance analysis and simulation results.

    This paper reflects the analytical study of dense wavelength division multiplexed optical network with different number of channels at various channel spacing in order to achieve higher data rates by means of few advanced modulation schemes. Bit error rate and quality factor are being analyzed with the variation in number of channels, channel spacing and transmission length of fiber. Advanced modulation schemes being compared here are carrier suppressed return to zero (CSRZ), duobinary return to zero (DRZ), modified duobinary return to zero (MDRZ), 33 % differential phase shift keying (33 % DPSK), 66 % DPSK and differential quaternary phase shift keying (DQPSK). It is keenly observed that CSRZ scheme with 100 GHz channel spacing serves best performance in terms of max. Q factor, min. BER and maximum transmission coverage upto 4,000 km for 16 and 32 channels DWDM system since CSRZ is high tolerant to nonlinear effects. On the other hand, MDRZ scheme with 75 GHz channel spacing exhibits transmission coverage upto 4,000 km and 4,500 km for 16 and 32 channels respectively, but with degraded signal due to effect of inter symbol interference (ISI).

  18. Unified Importance Sampling Schemes for Efficient Simulation of Outage Capacity over Generalized Fading Channels

    KAUST Repository

    Rached, Nadhir B.

    2015-11-13

    The outage capacity (OC) is among the most important performance metrics of communication systems operating over fading channels. Of interest in the present paper is the evaluation of the OC at the output of the Equal Gain Combining (EGC) and the Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC) receivers. In this case, it can be seen that this problem turns out to be that of computing the Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF) for the sum of independent random variables. Since finding a closedform expression for the CDF of the sum distribution is out of reach for a wide class of commonly used distributions, methods based on Monte Carlo (MC) simulations take pride of price. In order to allow for the estimation of the operating range of small outage probabilities, it is of paramount importance to develop fast and efficient estimation methods as naive Monte Carlo (MC) simulations would require high computational complexity. In this line, we propose in this work two unified, yet efficient, hazard rate twisting Importance Sampling (IS) based approaches that efficiently estimate the OC of MRC or EGC diversity techniques over generalized independent fading channels. The first estimator is shown to possess the asymptotic optimality criterion and applies for arbitrary fading models, whereas the second one achieves the well-desired bounded relative error property for the majority of the well-known fading variates. Moreover, the second estimator is shown to achieve the asymptotic optimality property under the particular Log-normal environment. Some selected simulation results are finally provided in order to illustrate the substantial computational gain achieved by the proposed IS schemes over naive MC simulations.

    2014-05-28

    This work proposes a suboptimal multi-user scheduling scheme for Gaussian broadcast channels which improves upon the classical single user selection, while considerably reducing complexity as compared to the optimal superposition coding with successful interference cancellation. The proposed scheme combines the two users with the maximum weighted instantaneous rate using superposition coding. The instantaneous rate and power allocation are derived in closed-form, while the long term rate of each user is derived in integral form for all channel distributions. Numerical results are then provided to characterize the prospected gains of the proposed scheme.

This paper analyzes channel estimation algorithms for OFDM systems not only for the downlink but also for the uplink.

  1. Improving MIMO-OFDM decision-directed channel estimation by utilizing error-correcting codes

    2009-05-01

    Full Text Available In this paper a decision-directed Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO channel tracking algorithm is enhanced to raise the channel estimate accuracy. While DDCE is prone to error propagation the enhancement employs channel decoding in the tracking process. Therefore, a quantized block of symbols is checked on consistency via the channel decoder, possibly corrected and then used. This yields a more robust tracking of the channel in terms of bit error rate and improves the channel estimate under certain conditions.

    Equalization is performed to prove the feasibility of the obtained channel estimate. Therefore a combined signal consisting of data and pilot symbols is sent. Adaptive filters are applied to exploit correlations in time, frequency and spatial domain. By using good error-correcting coding schemes like Turbo Codes or Low Density Parity Check (LDPC codes, adequate channel estimates can be acquired even at low signal to noise ratios (SNR. The proposed algorithm among two others is applied for channel estimation and equalization and results are compared.

    In orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing(OFDM)amplify-and-forward(AF)relay networks,in order to exploit diversity gains over frequency-selective fading channels,the receiver needs to acquire the knowledge of channel state information(CSI).In this article,based on the recent methodology of distributed compressed sensing(DCS),a novel channel estimation scheme is proposed.The joint sparsity model 2(JSM-2)in DCS theory and simultaneous orthogonal matching pursuit(SOMP)are both introduced to improve the estimation performance and increase the spectral efficiency.Simulation results show that compared with current compressed sensing(CS)methods,the estimation error of our scheme is reduced dramatically in high SNR region while the pilot number is still kept small.

They describe a recursive algorithm for an APD in rectangular coordinates and give the structure for implementation of the algorithm. A modified recursive algorithm which is called the sign algorithm and the structure for implementation are proposed.

  8. A Rate Adaptation Scheme According to Channel Conditions in Wireless LANs

    Science.gov (United States)

    Numoto, Daisuke; Inai, Hiroshi

    Rate adaptation in wireless LANs is to select the most suitable transmission rate automatically according to channel condition. If the channel condition is good, a station can choose a higher transmission rate, otherwise, it should choose a lower but noise-resistant transmission rate. Since IEEE 802.11 does not specify any rate adaptation scheme, several schemes have been proposed. However those schemes provide low throughput or unfair transmission opportunities among stations especially when the number of stations increases. In this paper, we propose a rate adaptation scheme under which the transmission rate quickly closes and then stays around an optimum rate even in the presence of a large number of stations. Via simulation, our scheme provides higher throughput than existing ones and almost equal fairness.

    Guo, Rui; Zhang, Yue; Lin, Qianqiang; Chen, Zengping

    2016-07-04

    In this paper, we propose a novel direction of arrival (DOA) estimation method for wideband signals with sensor arrays. The proposed method splits the wideband array output into multiple frequency sub-channels and estimates the signal parameters using a digital channelization receiver. Based on the output sub-channels, a channelization-based incoherent signal subspace method (Channelization-ISM) and a channelization-based test of orthogonality of projected subspaces method (Channelization-TOPS) are proposed. Channelization-ISM applies narrowband signal subspace methods on each sub-channel independently. Then the arithmetic mean or geometric mean of the estimated DOAs from each sub-channel gives the final result. Channelization-TOPS measures the orthogonality between the signal and the noise subspaces of the output sub-channels to estimate DOAs. The proposed channelization-based method isolates signals in different bandwidths reasonably and improves the output SNR. It outperforms the conventional ISM and TOPS methods on estimation accuracy and dynamic range, especially in real environments. Besides, the parallel processing architecture makes it easy to implement on hardware. A wideband digital array radar (DAR) using direct wideband radio frequency (RF) digitization is presented. Experiments carried out in a microwave anechoic chamber with the wideband DAR are presented to demonstrate the performance. The results verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.

  11. Noise and nonlinear estimation with optimal schemes in DTI.

    Özcan, Alpay

    2010-11-01

    In general, the estimation of the diffusion properties for diffusion tensor experiments (DTI) is accomplished via least squares estimation (LSE). The technique requires applying the logarithm to the measurements, which causes bad propagation of errors. Moreover, the way noise is injected to the equations invalidates the least squares estimate as the best linear unbiased estimate. Nonlinear estimation (NE), despite its longer computation time, does not possess any of these problems. However, all of the conditions and optimization methods developed in the past are based on the coefficient matrix obtained in a LSE setup. In this article, NE for DTI is analyzed to demonstrate that any result obtained relatively easily in a linear algebra setup about the coefficient matrix can be applied to the more complicated NE framework. The data, obtained using non-optimal and optimized diffusion gradient schemes, are processed with NE. In comparison with LSE, the results show significant improvements, especially for the optimization criterion. However, NE does not resolve the existing conflicts and ambiguities displayed with LSE methods.

    2015-08-12

    We propose a method for estimation of sparse frequency selective channels within MIMO-OFDM systems. These channels are independently sparse and share a common support. The method estimates the impulse response for each channel observed by the antennas at the receiver. Estimation is performed in a coordinated manner by sharing minimal information among neighboring antennas to achieve results better than many contemporary methods. Simulations demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed method.

    2013-12-01

    In this paper, the performance of cooperative decode-and-forward (DF) automatic-repeat-request (ARQ) scheme with co-channel interference is investigated in a long-term static Rayleigh fading environment. We assume that the relay node is impaired by M interferers and the destination node is impaired by N interferers. A closed-form expression for the outage probability of cooperative DF ARQ scheme with co-channel interference is derived. Then we analyze the average throughput of the scheme with co-channel interference and further derive that the average throughput is mainly influenced by the interferers at the destination node. The average total power consumption per information packet of cooperative DF ARQ scheme with co-channel interference is investigated and a closed-form expression is obtained for cooperative DF ARQ scheme with co-channel interference, in which the source and relay may use different transmission power level in different transmission time slots. The closed-form expression is valid for any maximum number of transmission time slots L allowed by the protocol and may play a key role in optimizing power allocation. Numerical and simulation results are presented to verify our analysis.

    2007-01-01

    Considering that channel estimation can play a crucial role in coherent detection of the information symbols in each data block, a blind channel estimation approach is proposed for redundant precoded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. A redundant linear frequency-domain precoder is applied to each pair of blocks before they enter the OFDM system. Because of the introduced structure, the frequency-selective channel can be identified at the receiver based on autocorrelation operations, singular value decomposition (SVD),and by resolving the scalar ambiguity. The proposed channel estimation method has low computational complexity and requires no prior statistical information on channel or noise. And the proposed blind method has high spectral efficiency owing to exploiting no training sequence. Computer simulations confirm that this proposed blind channel estimation method can identify the frequency-selective channels perfectly and obtain a good performance.

    Hernandez-Duenas, Gerardo; Beljadid, Abdelaziz

    2016-10-01

    We develop a new high-resolution, non-oscillatory semi-discrete central-upwind scheme with artificial viscosity for shallow-water flows in channels with arbitrary geometry and variable topography. The artificial viscosity, proposed as an alternative to nonlinear limiters, allows us to use high-resolution reconstructions at a low computational cost. The scheme recognizes steady states at rest when a delicate balance between the source terms and flux gradients occurs. This balance in irregular geometries is more complex than that taking place in channels with vertical walls. A suitable technique is applied by properly taking into account the effects induced by the geometry. Incorporating the contributions of the artificial viscosity and an appropriate time step restriction, the scheme preserves the positivity of the water's depth. A description of the proposed scheme, its main properties as well as the proofs of well-balance and the positivity of the scheme are provided. Our numerical experiments confirm stability, well-balance, positivity-preserving properties and high resolution of the proposed method. Comparisons of numerical solutions obtained with the proposed scheme and experimental data are conducted, showing a good agreement. This scheme can be applied to shallow-water flows in channels with complex geometry and variable bed topography.

  16. Channel access delay and buffer distribution of two-user opportunistic scheduling schemes in wireless networks

    KAUST Repository

    Hossain, Md Jahangir

    2010-07-01

    In our earlier works, we proposed rate adaptive hierarchical modulation-assisted two-best user opportunistic scheduling (TBS) and hybrid two-user scheduling (HTS) schemes. The proposed schemes are innovative in the sense that they include a second user in the transmission opportunistically using hierarchical modulations. As such the frequency of information access of the users increases without any degradation of the system spectral efficiency (SSE) compared to the classical opportunistic scheduling scheme. In this paper, we analyze channel access delay of an incoming packet at the base station (BS) buffer when our proposed TBS and HTS schemes are employed at the BS. Specifically, using a queuing analytic model we derive channel access delay as well as buffer distribution of the packets that wait at BS buffer for down-link (DL) transmission. We compare performance of the TBS and HTS schemes with that of the classical single user opportunistic schemes namely, absolute carrier-to-noise ratio (CNR)-based single user scheduling (ASS) and normalized CNR-based single user scheduling (NSS). For an independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) fading environment, our proposed scheme can improve packet\\'s access delay performance compared to the ASS. Selected numerical results in an independent but non-identically distributed (i.n.d.) fading environment show that our proposed HTS achieves overall good channel access delay performance. © 2010 IEEE.

  18. Several teleportation schemes of an arbitrary unknown multi-particle state via different quantum channels

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Peng Jia-Yin; Mo Zhi-Wen

    2013-01-01

    We first provide four new schemes for two-party quantum teleportation of an arbitrary unknown multi-particle state by using three-,four-,and five-particle states as the quantum channel,respectively.The successful probability and fidelity of the four schemes reach 1.In the first two schemes,the receiver can only apply one of the unitary transformations to reconstruct the original state,making it easier for these two schemes to be directly realized.In the third and fourth schemes,the sender can preform Bell-state measurements instead of multipartite entanglement measurements of the existing similar schemes,which makes real experiments more suitable.It is found that the last three schemes may become tripartite controlled teleportation schemes of teleporting an arbitrary multi-particle state after a simple modification.Finally,we present a new scheme for three-party sharing an arbitrary unknown multi-particle state.In this scheme,the sender first shares three three-particle GHZ states with two agents.After setting up the secure quantum channel,an arbitrary unknown multi-particle state can be perfectly teleported if the sender performs three Bell-state measurements,and either of two receivers operates an appropriate unitary transformation to obtain the original state with the help of other receiver's three single-particle measurements.The successful probability and fidelity of this scheme also reach 1.It is demonstrated that this scheme can be generalized easily to the case of sharing an arbitrary unknown multi-particle state among several agents.

  19. Low-overhead interference mitigation scheme for collaborative channel assignment in overloaded multiantenna femtocells

    KAUST Repository

    Radaydeh, Redha Mahmoud Mesleh

    2012-09-01

    This paper proposes a collaborative-based scheme for a transmit antenna channel assignment in overloaded multiantenna femtocells, with the aim of reducing the overhead load. It is assumed that multiple femtocell access points (FAPs) are deployed to sequentially allocate the available resources to scheduled users while reducing the interference experienced by each active user. The FAPs operate concurrently and each of them is allocated an orthogonal channel and employs a transmit array of arbitrary size. The suitable FAP and its associated transmit channel are then identified based on the noncoherently predicted interference power levels on available channels when feedback links are capacity limited. The effect of possible FAP failure or infeasibility to collaborate is characterized for different operating conditions. The applicability of the proposed scheme for specific cases, such as the use of directional antennas in each FAP or shared channels among different FAPs, is also discussed. For arbitrary statistical models of interference power levels on different channels, the average numbers of collaboration requests and examined transmit antenna channels are quantified. Moreover, the statistics of the resulting interference power are derived, which are then used to study various system performance measures. The effect of the interference threshold on the aforementioned measures for processing load and achieved performance is investigated. Numerical and simulations results are presented to support the analytical development and to clarify the tradeoff between the achieved performance enhancement using the proposed scheme and the required processing load for different operating scenarios. © 1967-2012 IEEE.

  20. Low-sampling-rate ultra-wideband channel estimation using a bounded-data-uncertainty approach

    KAUST Repository

    Ballal, Tarig

    2014-01-01

    This paper proposes a low-sampling-rate scheme for ultra-wideband channel estimation. In the proposed scheme, P pulses are transmitted to produce P observations. These observations are exploited to produce channel impulse response estimates at a desired sampling rate, while the ADC operates at a rate that is P times less. To avoid loss of fidelity, the interpulse interval, given in units of sampling periods of the desired rate, is restricted to be co-prime with P. This condition is affected when clock drift is present and the transmitted pulse locations change. To handle this situation and to achieve good performance without using prior information, we derive an improved estimator based on the bounded data uncertainty (BDU) model. This estimator is shown to be related to the Bayesian linear minimum mean squared error (LMMSE) estimator. The performance of the proposed sub-sampling scheme was tested in conjunction with the new estimator. It is shown that high reduction in sampling rate can be achieved. The proposed estimator outperforms the least squares estimator in most cases; while in the high SNR regime, it also outperforms the LMMSE estimator. © 2014 IEEE.

  1. A bootstrap estimation scheme for chemical compositional data with nondetects

    2014-01-01

    The bootstrap method is commonly used to estimate the distribution of estimators and their associated uncertainty when explicit analytic expressions are not available or are difficult to obtain. It has been widely applied in environmental and geochemical studies, where the data generated often represent parts of whole, typically chemical concentrations. This kind of constrained data is generically called compositional data, and they require specialised statistical methods to properly account for their particular covariance structure. On the other hand, it is not unusual in practice that those data contain labels denoting nondetects, that is, concentrations falling below detection limits. Nondetects impede the implementation of the bootstrap and represent an additional source of uncertainty that must be taken into account. In this work, a bootstrap scheme is devised that handles nondetects by adding an imputation step within the resampling process and conveniently propagates their associated uncertainly. In doing so, it considers the constrained relationships between chemical concentrations originated from their compositional nature. Bootstrap estimates using a range of imputation methods, including new stochastic proposals, are compared across scenarios of increasing difficulty. They are formulated to meet compositional principles following the log-ratio approach, and an adjustment is introduced in the multivariate case to deal with nonclosed samples. Results suggest that nondetect bootstrap based on model-based imputation is generally preferable. A robust approach based on isometric log-ratio transformations appears to be particularly suited in this context. Computer routines in the R statistical programming language are provided.

    2007-01-01

    Channel state information of OFDM-STC system is required for maximum likelihood decoding. A subspace-based semi-blind method was proposed for estimating the channels of OFDM-STC systems. The channels are first estimated blindly up to an ambiguity parameter utilizing the nature structure of STC, irrespective of the underlying signal constellations. Furthermore, a method was proposed to resolve the ambiguity by using a few pilot symbols. The simulation results show the proposed semi-blind estimator can achieve higher spectral efficiency and provide improved estimation performance compared to the non-blind estimator.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Security issue has been considered as one of the most pivotal aspects for the fifth-generation mobile network (5G due to the increasing demands of security service as well as the growing occurrence of security threat. In this paper, instead of focusing on the security architecture in the upper layer, we investigate the secure transmission for a basic channel model in a heterogeneous network, that is, two-way relay channels. By exploiting the properties of the transmission medium in the physical layer, we propose a novel secure scheme for the aforementioned channel mode. With precoding design, the proposed scheme is able to achieve a high transmission efficiency as well as security. Two different approaches have been introduced: information theoretical approach and physical layer encryption approach. We show that our scheme is secure under three different adversarial models: (1 untrusted relay attack model, (2 trusted relay with eavesdropper attack model, and (3 untrusted relay with eavesdroppers attack model. We also derive the secrecy capacity of the two different approaches under the three attacks. Finally, we conduct three simulations of our proposed scheme. The simulation results agree with the theoretical analysis illustrating that our proposed scheme could achieve a better performance than the existing schemes.

    In this paper, a new scheme that combines Space-Time Block-Coding (STBC) based on an Alamouti-like scheme and the Least Squares (LS) channel estimation using optimal training sequences in Cyclic-Prefix-based (CP)\\Single-Carrier (SC) systems is proposed. With two transmit antennas, based on Cramer-Rao lower bound for channel estimation, it is shown that the Periodic Complementary Set (PCS) is optimal over frequency-selective fading channels. Compared with the normal scheme without STBC, 3dB Mean Square Error (MSE) performance gains and fewer restrictions on the length of channel impulse response are demonstrated.

A set of pilot tones first are placed in each OFDM block, then the channel frequency response of these pilot tones are adaptively estimated by reeursive least squares (RLS) directly in frequency domain not in time domain. Then after the estimation of the channel frequency response of pilot tones, to obtain the channel frequency response of data tones, a new interpolation method based on DFT different from traditional linear interpolation method according to adjacent pilot tones is proposed. Simulation results show good performance of the technique.

    Channel impulse response (CIR) can be estimated on the basis of cyclic correlation in time-domain for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. This article proposes a generalized channel estimation method to reduce the estimation error by taking the average of different CIRs. Channel impulse responses are derived according to the different starting points of cyclic correlation. In addition, an effective CIR length estimation algorithm is also presented. The whole proposed methods are more effective to OFDM systems, especially to those with longer cyclic prefix. The analysis and the simulation results verify that the mean square error performance is 4-5 dB better than the conventional schemes under the same conditions.

  9. Low-Complexity Bayesian Estimation of Cluster-Sparse Channels

    KAUST Repository

    Ballal, Tarig

    2015-09-18

    This paper addresses the problem of channel impulse response estimation for cluster-sparse channels under the Bayesian estimation framework. We develop a novel low-complexity minimum mean squared error (MMSE) estimator by exploiting the sparsity of the received signal profile and the structure of the measurement matrix. It is shown that due to the banded Toeplitz/circulant structure of the measurement matrix, a channel impulse response, such as underwater acoustic channel impulse responses, can be partitioned into a number of orthogonal or approximately orthogonal clusters. The orthogonal clusters, the sparsity of the channel impulse response and the structure of the measurement matrix, all combined, result in a computationally superior realization of the MMSE channel estimator. The MMSE estimator calculations boil down to simpler in-cluster calculations that can be reused in different clusters. The reduction in computational complexity allows for a more accurate implementation of the MMSE estimator. The proposed approach is tested using synthetic Gaussian channels, as well as simulated underwater acoustic channels. Symbol-error-rate performance and computation time confirm the superiority of the proposed method compared to selected benchmark methods in systems with preamble-based training signals transmitted over clustersparse channels.

  10. Two-Way Training Design for Discriminatory Channel Estimation in Wireless MIMO Systems

    CERN Document Server

    Huang, Chao-Wei

    2011-01-01

    This work examines the use of two-way training in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless systems to discriminate the channel estimation performances between a legitimate receiver (LR) and an unauthorized receiver (UR). This thesis extends upon the previously proposed discriminatory channel estimation (DCE) scheme that allows only the transmitter to send training signals. The goal of DCE is to minimize the channel estimation error at LR while requiring the channel estimation error at UR to remain beyond a certain level. If the training signal is sent only by the transmitter, the performance discrimination between LR and UR will be limited since the training signals help both receivers perform estimates of their downlink channels. In this work, we consider instead the two-way training methodology that allows both the transmitter and LR to send training signals. In this case, the training signal sent by LR helps the transmitter obtain knowledge of the transmitter-to-LR channel, but does not help UR estim...

    1998-12-31

    At present, treatment of fracture toughness data varies depending on the type of data (K{sub IC}, J, CTOD) that are available for fracture mechanics analysis. This complicates structural integrity assessment and makes it difficult to apply any single, unified procedure. Within the Brite-Euram project `SINTAP` a fracture toughness estimation scheme has been developed for the unified treatment of data for use in structural integrity assessment. As a procedure, it can be applied to Charpy data, as well as to fracture toughness data, and is suitable for the treatment of data at both single and different temperatures. The data sets may contain results from both homogeneous and inhomogeneous material, making the procedure applicable also to welded joints. The procedure allows fracture toughness assessment with quantified probability and confidence levels. Irrespective of the type of the original data, one material-specific K{sub mat} value representing a conservative estimate of the mean fracture toughness is obtained (with its probability distribution). This information can then be applied to structural integrity assessment. (orig.) 4 refs.

  12. On the estimation of cooperativity in ion channel kinetics: activation free energy and kinetic mechanism of Shaker K+ channel.

    Banerjee, Kinshuk; Das, Biswajit; Gangopadhyay, Gautam

    2013-04-28

    In this paper, we have explored generic criteria of cooperative behavior in ion channel kinetics treating it on the same footing with multistate receptor-ligand binding in a compact theoretical framework. We have shown that the characterization of cooperativity of ion channels in terms of the Hill coefficient violates the standard Hill criteria defined for allosteric cooperativity of ligand binding. To resolve the issue, an alternative measure of cooperativity is proposed here in terms of the cooperativity index that sets a unified criteria for both the systems. More importantly, for ion channel this index can be very useful to describe the cooperative kinetics as it can be readily determined from the experimentally measured ionic current combined with theoretical modelling. We have analyzed the correlation between the voltage value and slope of the voltage-activation curve at the half-activation point and consequently determined the standard free energy of activation of the ion channel using two well-established mechanisms of cooperativity, namely, Koshland-Nemethy-Filmer (KNF) and Monod-Wyman-Changeux (MWC) models. Comparison of the theoretical results for both the models with appropriate experimental data of mutational perturbation of Shaker K(+) channel supports the experimental fact that the KNF model is more suitable to describe the cooperative behavior of this class of ion channels, whereas the performance of the MWC model is unsatisfactory. We have also estimated the mechanistic performance through standard free energy of channel activation for both the models and proposed a possible functional disadvantage in the MWC scheme.

    Sadough, Sajad; Jaffrot, Emmanuel; Duhamel, Pierre

    2007-01-01

    This paper introduces an expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm within a wavelet domain Bayesian framework for semi-blind channel estimation of multiband OFDM based UWB communications. A prior distribution is chosen for the wavelet coefficients of the unknown channel impulse response in order to model a sparseness property of the wavelet representation. This prior yields, in maximum a posteriori estimation, a thresholding rule within the EM algorithm. We particularly focus on reducing the number of estimated parameters by iteratively discarding ``unsignificant'' wavelet coefficients from the estimation process. Simulation results using UWB channels issued from both models and measurements show that under sparsity conditions, the proposed algorithm outperforms pilot based channel estimation in terms of mean square error and bit error rate and enhances the estimation accuracy with less computational complexity than traditional semi-blind methods.

    2011-01-01

    We investigate the diversity order of decode-and-forward relay selection in Nakagami-m fading, in cases where practical channel estimation techniques are applied. In this respect, we introduce a unified model for the imperfect channel estimates, where the effects of noise, time-varying channels, and feedback delays are jointly considered. Based on this model, the correlation between the actual and the estimated channel values, \\rho, is expressed as a function of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), yielding closed-form expressions for the overall outage probability as a function of \\rho. The resulting diversity order and power gain reveal a high dependence of the performance of relay selection on the high SNR behavior of \\rho, thus shedding light onto the effect of channel estimation on the overall performance. It is shown that when the channel estimates are not frequently updated in applications involving time-varying channels, or when the amount of power allocated for channel estimation is not sufficiently high...

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Due to huge popularity, the WLANs (Wireless Local Area Networks have gained in recent years, especially based on IEEE 802.11 family of standards, dense deployment of AP (Access Point can be found in many places. However, these dense deployments can severely affect the aggregate throughput of the network due increased contention and interference between different APs using same channel. This often leads to decreased overall throughput of a local wireless network, such as in a university campus or city-wide Wi-Fi network. In this paper, a simple client-assisted and distributed channel assignment scheme has been proposed for minimizing such adverse affects of interference in dense WLANs. Client-assisted means the resources of clients are also used for measurements of some parameters to increase the performance of the scheme. Distributed schemes are those schemes which can easily be used where AP belongs to different owners and administrative domains. This scheme will be shown to have better throughput performance than other prominent distributed schemes through simulation results.

    Full Text Available Pilot Symbol Assisted Modulation (PSAM channel estimation techniques over Rayleigh fading channels have been analysed in recent years. Fluctuations in the Rayleigh fading channel gain degrades the performance of any modulation scheme. This paper develops and analyses a PSAM Polynomial interpolation technique based on Least Square (LS approxi-mations to estimate the Channel State Information (CSI for M-ary Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (M-QAM over flat Rayleigh fading channels. A Sliding window approach with pilot symbol adjustment is employed in order to minimize the computational time complexity of the estimation technique. The channel estimation performance, and its computational delay and time complexity is verified for di?erent Doppler frequen-cies ( fd, frame lengths (L, and Polynomial orders (P-orders. Simulation results show that the Cubic Polynomial interpolation gives superior Symbol Error Rate (SER performance than the Quadratic Polynomial interpolation and higher P-orders, and the performance of the Polynomial estimation techniques degrade with increase in the P-orders.

    2014-12-01

    Preamble-based channel estimation in filter bank-based multicarrier (FBMC) systems using offset quadrature amplitude modulation (OQAM) has been extensively studied in the last few years, due to the many advantages this modulation scheme can offer over cyclic prefix (CP)-based orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and in view of the interesting challenges posed on the channel estimator by the interference effect inherent in such an FBMC system. In particular, preambles of short duration and of both the block ( full) and comb ( sparse) types were designed so as to minimize the channel estimation mean squared error (MSE) subject to a given transmit energy. In the light of the important role that relay-based cooperative networks are expected to play in future wireless communication systems, it is of interest to consider FBMC/OQAM, and in particular questions associated to preamble-based channel estimation, in such a context as well. The goal of this paper is to address these problems and come up with optimal solutions that extend existing results in a single relay-based cooperative network. Both low and medium frequency selective channels are considered. In addition to optimal preamble and estimator design, the equalization/detection task is studied, shedding light to a relay-generated interference effect and proposing a simple way to come over it. The reported simulation results corroborate the analysis and reveal interesting behavior with respect to channel frequency selectivity and signal-to-noise ratio.

  20. Estimation and Direct Equalization of Doubly Selective Channels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Leus Geert

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available We propose channel estimation and direct equalization techniques for transmission over doubly selective channels. The doubly selective channel is approximated using the basis expansion model (BEM. Linear and decision feedback equalizers implemented by time-varying finite impulse response (FIR filters may then be used to equalize the doubly selective channel, where the time-varying FIR filters are designed according to the BEM. In this sense, the equalizer BEM coefficients are obtained either based on channel estimation or directly. The proposed channel estimation and direct equalization techniques range from pilot-symbol-assisted-modulation- (PSAM- based techniques to blind and semiblind techniques. In PSAM techniques, pilot symbols are utilized to estimate the channel or directly obtain the equalizer coefficients. The training overhead can be completely eliminated by using blind techniques or reduced by combining training-based techniques with blind techniques resulting in semiblind techniques. Numerical results are conducted to verify the different proposed channel estimation and direct equalization techniques.

  1. Cooperation schemes for rate enhancement in detect-and-forward relay channels

    2010-05-01

    To improve the spectral efficiency of "Detect-and-Forward" (DetF) half-duplex relaying in fading channels, we propose a cooperation scheme where the relay uses a modulation whose order is higher than the one at the source. In a new common framework, we show that the proposed scheme offers considerable gains - in terms of achievable information rates - compared to the conventional DetF relaying schemes for both orthogonal and non-orthogonal source/relay cooperation. This allows us to propose an adaptive cooperation scheme based on the maximization of the information rate at the destination which needs to observe only the average signal-to-noise ratios of direct and relaying links. ©2010 IEEE.

    We consider frequency selective channel estimation in the uplink of massive MIMO-OFDM systems, where our major concern is complexity. A low complexity distributed LMMSE algorithm is proposed that attains near optimal channel impulse response (CIR) estimates from noisy observations at receive antenna array. In proposed method, every antenna estimates the CIRs of its neighborhood followed by recursive sharing of estimates with immediate neighbors. At each step, every antenna calculates the weighted average of shared estimates which converges to near optimal LMMSE solution. The simulation results validate the near optimal performance of proposed algorithm in terms of mean square error (MSE). © 2015 EURASIP.

    Full Text Available An experimental analysis to evaluate the practical suitability of the Underwater Acoustic (UWA communication scheme is the major aim of this study. Oceanic channel imposes two major challenges (i.e., multipath propagation and Doppler effects for underwater acoustic communication. Being fastest possible underwater information exchanger, OFDM is considered as the most viable option for mitigation of multipath. However, wideband nature of oceanic channel introduces severe Doppler shifts when dealing with OFDM subcarriers. Slight dynamics in a channel may cause overlapping of subcarriers such that entire signal can get completely distorted and sued as ICI (inter-carrier interference induced transmission. In this study, we are presenting the algorithm to rectify the effects of Doppler shifts and to make OFDM technique more robust and more feasible for underwater environments. This study assures the performance of Zero-Padded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (ZP-OFDM based communication system in dynamic channel conditions. Data transmission using various packets structures are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of ZP-OFDM scheme. The narrow rectangular water tank of acoustic lab, Harbin Engineering University is utilized as a dynamic aquatic channel. The experimental results endorse the successful performance and suggest ZP-OFDM as a viable choice for high-rate communications over dynamic and high multipath oceanic channels.

    Full Text Available In this study, various techniques of UWA (Underwater Acoustic, UWA channel estimation for underwater MIMO-OFDM system are studied. Dual turbo channel estimation algorithm based on channel puncture technique is proposed. In order to judge the criteria of channel compensation, difference between the raw received signal and the re-coded information signal is carried out. The uncertain sub-channels are punched by using channel puncture technique and replaced by the responses estimated by MMSE (Minimum Mean Square Error, MMSE or OMP (Orthogonal Matching Pursuit, OMP algorithms. Compared with the conventional existing algorithms, the proposed algorithm can effectively reduce the occupancy of pilots, offer confined error propagation and significantly increase the stability of the system with Monte Caro simulation. The results of in-tank-experiment further indorse the reliable performance with improved efficiency of 1.51 bits/s/Hz.

    An adaptive priori likelihood ratio (LLR) estimation method is proposed over non-Gaussian channel in the intensity modulation/direct detection (IM/DD) optical communication systems. Using the nonparametric histogram and the weighted least square linear fitting in the tail regions, the LLR is estimated and used for the soft decision decoding of the low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. This method can adapt well to the three main kinds of intensity modulation/direct detection (IM/DD) optical channel, i.e., the chi-square channel, the Webb-Gaussian channel and the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. The performance penalty of channel estimation is neglected.

  6. Impact of channel estimation error on channel capacity of multiple input multiple output system

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    In order to investigate the impact of channel estimation error on channel capacity of multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system, a novel method is proposed to explore the channel capacity in correlated Rayleigh fading environment. A system model is constructed based on the channel estimation error at receiver side. Using the properties of Wishart distribution, the lower bound of the channel capacity is derived when the MIMO channel is of full rank. Then a method is proposed to select the optimum set of transmit antennas based on the lower bound of the mean channel capacity. The novel method can be easily implemented with low computational complexity. The simulation results show that the channel capacity of MIMO system is sensitive to channel estimation error, and is maximized when the signal-to-noise ratio increases to a certain point. Proper selection of transmit antennas can increase the channel capacity of MIMO system by about 1 bit/s in a flat fading environment with deficient rank of channel matrix.

    2015-03-01

    This work addresses channel estimation in multiple antenna multicell interference-limited networks. Channel state information (CSI) acquisition is vital for interference mitigation. Wireless networks often suffer from multicell interference, which can be mitigated by deploying beamforming to spatially direct the transmissions. The accuracy of the estimated CSI plays an important role in designing accurate beamformers that can control the amount of interference created from simultaneous spatial transmissions to mobile users. Therefore, a new technique based on the structure of the spatial covariance matrix and the discrete cosine transform (DCT) is proposed to enhance channel estimation in the presence of interference. Bayesian estimation and Least Squares estimation frameworks are introduced by utilizing the DCT to separate the overlapping spatial paths that create the interference. The spatial domain is thus exploited to mitigate the contamination which is able to discriminate across interfering users. Gains over conventional channel estimation techniques are presented in our simulations which are also valid for a small number of antennas.

    In this paper, we propose a new method of channel estimation for asynchronous additive white Gaussian noise channels in satellite communications. This method is based on signals correlation and multiuser interference cancellation which adopts a successive structure. Propagation delays and signals amplitudes are jointly estimated in order to be used for data detection at the receiver. As, a multiuser detector, a single stage successive interference cancellation (SIC) architecture is analyzed and integrated to the channel estimation technique and the whole system is evaluated. The satellite access method adopted is the direct sequence code division multiple access (DS CDMA) one. To evaluate the channel estimation and the detection technique, we have simulated a satellite uplink with an asynchronous multiuser access.

    Full Text Available A fast linear minimum mean square error (LMMSE channel estimation method has been proposed for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM systems. In comparison with the conventional LMMSE channel estimation, the proposed channel estimation method does not require the statistic knowledge of the channel in advance and avoids the inverse operation of a large dimension matrix by using the fast Fourier transform (FFT operation. Therefore, the computational complexity can be reduced significantly. The normalized mean square errors (NMSEs of the proposed method and the conventional LMMSE estimation have been derived. Numerical results show that the NMSE of the proposed method is very close to that of the conventional LMMSE method, which is also verified by computer simulation. In addition, computer simulation shows that the performance of the proposed method is almost the same with that of the conventional LMMSE method in terms of bit error rate (BER.

    According to low earth orbit (LEO) satel ite systems with users of different levels, a dynamic channel reservation scheme based on priorities is proposed. Dynamic calculation of the thresh-olds for reserved channels is the key of this strategy. In order to obtain the optimal thresholds, the traffic is predicted based on the high-speed deterministic movement property of LEO satel ites firstly. Then, a channel al ocation model based on Markov is es-tablished. Final y, the solution of the model is obtained based on the genetic algorithm. Without user location, this strategy effec-tively reduces handover failures and improves channel utilization by adjusting dynamical y the thresholds according to traffic condi-tions. The simulation results show that the system’s overal quality of service can be improved by this strategy.

    2003-01-01

    Optimal multilevel codes (MLC) with M2-QAM constellations are considered with focus on both AWGN and Rayleigh fading channels. With the proposition of three new set partitioning rules for M2-QAM constellations, a novel simplified MLC scheme with a very simple MSD (Multistage decoding) structure comes into being, which is operated on the capacity rule. Compared with traditional MLC/MSD scheme the new MLC/MSD structure greatly reduces the calculation of the individual capacities in MLC system because the new set partitioning rules ensure the independency of two dimensions symbols. Furthermore the new MLC/MSD system cannot enhance any performance loss and the time delay is just 1/2 of that with traditional partitioning rules. As an example 64-QAM constellation with three new set partitioning rules are provided. Their performance is simulated over AWGN and Rayleigh fading channels by choosing BCH codes as the component codes.

    2012-01-01

    Effective spectrum sensing strategies enable cognitive radios (CRs) to identify and opportunistically transmit on under-utilized spectral resources. In this paper, sequential channel sensing problems for single and multiple secondary users (SUs) cases are effectively modeled through finite state Markovian processes. More specifically, a model for single user case is introduced and validated through analytical analysis. In order to address multiple SUs, this model is extended to modified p-persistent access (MPPA) and its generalized version. While the introduced analytical framework facilitates the process of performance evaluation, these algorithms experience a high level of collision among the SUs. To mitigate this problem appropriately, p-persistent random access (PPRA) scheme is proposed, which offers higher average throughput for SUs by statistically distributing their loads among all channels. The structure and performance of the proposed schemes are discussed in detail, and a set of illustrative numeri...

    In this paper, an improved channel esti-mation algorithm based on tracking the level crossing rate (LCR) for fading rate is proposed in the CDMA systems with the continuous pilot channel. By using a simple LCRestimator, the Doppler-shift can be calculated approxi-mately, thus the observation length of the channel estima-tion can be adjusted dynamically. The procedure is pre-sented which includes the iterative algorithm for the time varying channel. Moreover, computer simulation results show that the algorithm achieves good tradeoff between the noise compression capability and the channel tracking performance.

    In this paper, we investigate the effect of channel estimation error on the capacity and bit-error rate (BER) of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmit maximal ratio transmission (MRT) and receive maximal ratio combining (MRC) systems over uncorrelated Rayleigh fading channels. We first derive the ergodic (average) capacity expressions for such systems when power adaptation is applied at the transmitter. The exact capacity expression for the uniform power allocation case is also presented. Furthermore, to investigate the diversity order of MIMO MRT-MRC scheme, we derive the BER performance under a uniform power allocation policy. We also present an asymptotic BER performance analysis for the MIMO MRT-MRC system with multiuser diversity. The numerical results are given to illustrate the sensitivity of the main performance to the channel estimation error and the tightness of the approximate cutoff value. © 2011 IEEE.

  19. Energy-Efficient Channel Estimation in MIMO Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available The emergence of MIMO communications systems as practical high-data-rate wireless communications systems has created several technical challenges to be met. On the one hand, there is potential for enhancing system performance in terms of capacity and diversity. On the other hand, the presence of multiple transceivers at both ends has created additional cost in terms of hardware and energy consumption. For coherent detection as well as to do optimization such as water filling and beamforming, it is essential that the MIMO channel is known. However, due to the presence of multiple transceivers at both the transmitter and receiver, the channel estimation problem is more complicated and costly compared to a SISO system. Several solutions have been proposed to minimize the computational cost, and hence the energy spent in channel estimation of MIMO systems. We present a novel method of minimizing the overall energy consumption. Unlike existing methods, we consider the energy spent during the channel estimation phase which includes transmission of training symbols, storage of those symbols at the receiver, and also channel estimation at the receiver. We develop a model that is independent of the hardware or software used for channel estimation, and use a divide-and-conquer strategy to minimize the overall energy consumption.

    A novel cooperative diversity scheme based on Distributed Space-Time Block Coding and Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (DSTBC-MC-CDMA) is proposed which works well in frequency selective fading channels with multiple single-antenna users. And an analytical error model is established to describe the symbol decoding errors between interusers, based on which a close form expression for theoretical Bit Error Rate (BER) performance of the scheme is derived to analyze the influence of the interuser decoding errors on the BER performance of the scheme. Then simulation is complimented to verify the analytic result above, which also shows that the BER performance of DSTBC-MC-CDMA outgoes that of non-cooperative MC-CDMA with considerable gains. Furthermore, the simulations coincide with the theoretical results well.

    The problem of medium access control (MAC) in wireless single-Input multiple-output-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (SIMO-OFOM) systems is addressed.Traditional random access protocols have low overheads and inferior performance.Centralized methods have superior performance and high overheads.To achieve the tradeoff between overhead and performance,we propose a channelaware uplink transmission (CaUT) scheme for SIMO-OFDM systems.In CaUT,users transmit requestto-send (RTS) at some subcarriers whose channel gains are above a predetermined threshold.Using the channel state information provided by RTS,access point performs user selection with receive beamforming to decide which users can access and then broadcasts the selection results via clear-to-send (CTS) to users.We present a distributed power control scheme by using a simple fixed modulation mode.We optimize the modulation order and channel gain thresholds to maximize the separable packets subject to the bit-error-rate (BER) and temporal fairness requirements and the Individual average transmit power constraints.The performance of CaUT scheme is analyzed analytically and evaluated by simulations.Simulation results show that CaUT can achieve more significant throughput performance than traditional random access protocols.

  2. On the secrecy capacity of the MISO wiretap channel under imperfect channel estimation

    KAUST Repository

    Rezki, Zouheir

    2014-12-01

    We consider a wiretap channel consisting of a source with multiple antennas, a legitimate receiver and an eavesdropper with a single antenna each. The channels between the source and the receivers undergo fast fading. We assume that the transmitter, in addition to the statistics of both channels, is only aware of a noisy version of the CSI to the legitimate receiver referred to as main channel. The legitimate receiver is aware of both its instantaneous channel gain and the transmitter\\'s estimate of the main channel. On the other hand, the eavesdropper\\'s receiver, in addition to its instantaneous channel realization, is aware of the actual main CSI and the transmitter\\'s estimate as well. While the capacity of this channel is still open even with perfect CSI at the transmitter, we provide in this paper upper and lower bounds on the secrecy capacity. The upper bound is tighter than the one corresponding to perfect main CSI and the gap between the two upper bounds is characterized in function of the channel estimation error variance, at high-SNR. Furthermore, we show that our upper and lower bounds coincide in the case of no main CSI providing a trivial secrecy capacity.

    Full Text Available Cognitive Radio technology is a novel and effective approach to improve utilization of the precious radio spectrum. Spectrum sensing is one of the essential mechanisms for cognitive radio (CR and various sensing techniques are used by the secondary users to scan the licensed spectrum band of the primary radio (PR users to determine the spectrum holes. These can be intelligently used by the secondary users also referred to as CR users, for their own transmission without causing interference to the PR users. In this paper, a MAC protocol with two spectrum sensing schemes, namely Fusion based Arbitrary sensing scheme and Intelligence based sensing scheme are analyzed including the effects of interference. Rayleigh channel model for PR-PR interference and CR-PR interference is considered. An expression for the aggregate throughput of the cognitive radio network is derived for the two channel sensing schemes. The effects of interference on throughput are studied both by analysis and by simulation. It is found that interference affects the sensing efficiency which in turn affects the throughput of the cognitive radio users. Rate Adaptation techniques are further employed to enhance the cognitive radio network throughput.

    Full Text Available Integrating the strengths of multicarrier (MC modulation and code division multiple access (CDMA, MC-CDMA systems are of great interest for future broadband transmissions. This paper considers the problem of channel identification and signal combining/detection schemes for MC-CDMA systems equipped with multiple transmit antennas and space-time (ST coding. In particular, a subspace based blind channel identification algorithm is presented. Identifiability conditions are examined and specified which guarantee unique and perfect (up to a scalar channel estimation when knowledge of the noise subspace is available. Several popular single-user based signal combining schemes, namely the maximum ratio combining (MRC and the equal gain combining (EGC, which are often utilized in conventional single-transmit-antenna based MC-CDMA systems, are extended to the current ST-coded MC-CDMA (STC-MC-CDMA system to perform joint combining and decoding. In addition, a linear multiuser minimum mean-squared error (MMSE detection scheme is also presented, which is shown to outperform the MRC and EGC at some increased computational complexity. Numerical examples are presented to evaluate and compare the proposed channel identification and signal detection/combining techniques.

    Full Text Available We address the problem of superimposed trainings- (STs- based linearly time-varying (LTV channel estimation and symbol detection for orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing access (OFDMA systems at the uplink receiver. The LTV channel coefficients are modeled by truncated discrete Fourier bases (DFBs. By judiciously designing the superimposed pilot symbols, we estimate the LTV channel transfer functions over the whole frequency band by using a weighted average procedure, thereby providing validity for adaptive resource allocation. We also present a performance analysis of the channel estimation approach to derive a closed-form expression for the channel estimation variances. In addition, an iterative symbol detector is presented to mitigate the superimposed training effects on information sequence recovery. By the iterative mitigation procedure, the demodulator achieves a considerable gain in signal-interference ratio and exhibits a nearly indistinguishable symbol error rate (SER performance from that of frequency-division multiplexed trainings. Compared to existing frequency-division multiplexed training schemes, the proposed algorithm does not entail any additional bandwidth while with the advantage for system adaptive resource allocation.

    The need for achieving higher data rates in underwater acoustic communications leverages the use of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) schemes. In this paper two key issues regarding the design of a MIMO communications system, namely, channel estimation and symbol detection, are addressed. To enhance channel estimation performance, a cyclic approach for designing training sequences and a channel estimation algorithm called the iterative adaptive approach (IAA) are presented. Sparse channel estimates can be obtained by combining IAA with the Bayesian information criterion (BIC). Moreover, the RELAX algorithm can be used to improve the IAA with BIC estimates further. Regarding symbol detection, a minimum mean-squared error based detection scheme, called RELAX-BLAST, which is a combination of vertical Bell Labs layered space-time (V-BLAST) algorithm and the cyclic principle of the RELAX algorithm, is presented and it is shown that RELAX-BLAST outperforms V-BLAST. Both simulated and experimental results are provided to validate the proposed MIMO scheme. RACE'08 experimental results employing a 4 x 24 MIMO system show that the proposed scheme enjoys an average uncoded bit error rate of 0.38% at a payload data rate of 31.25 kbps and an average coded bit error rate of 0% at a payload data rate of 15.63 kbps.

    A channel estimation method is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency di-vision multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems in time-varying fading channels. In this method, a decision-direct-ed space-ahernating generalized expectation-maximization (SAGE) algorithm is introduced to the tracking of time-varying fading. In order to improve the estimation performance of the SAGE algorithm, a low rank approxi-mation method is presented by using the signal subspaee of the channel frequency autocorrelation matrix. The study reveals that this method can be incorporated into the SAGE algorithm. Furthermore, a modified fast sub-space tracking algorithm is given to adaptively estimate the signal subspace by utilizing training OFDM blocks sent at regular interval. Simulation results demonstrate the considerable benefits of the proposed channel estima-tion method.

    Full Text Available In orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM systems, an integer part of a frequency offset (IFO that causes ambiguity in data demodulation is estimated generally by comparing correlations between the received and local signals for IFO candidates. In this paper, we propose an IFO estimation scheme that provides a tradeoff between the estimation performance and the computational complexity including a conventional scheme as a special case. In the proposed scheme, template signals are formed by combining frequency-shifted training symbols, allowing the receiver to reduce the number of IFO candidates in the estimation process. Numerical results illustrate the tradeoff of the proposed scheme: The proposed scheme exhibits a tradeoff between the correct estimation probability and the computational complexity taking the number of the training symbols used to construct the template signal as a parameter.

    Full Text Available There is an increasing demand for high data transmission rates with the evolution of the very large scale integration (VLSI technology. The multiple input multiple output-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM systems are used to fulfill these requirements because of their unique properties such as high spectral efficiency, high data rate and resistance towards multipath propagation. MIMO-OFDM systems are finding their applications in the modern wireless communication systems like IEEE 802.11n, 4G and LTE. They also offer reliable communication with the increased coverage area. The bottleneck to the MIMO-OFDM systems is the estimation of the channel state information (CSI. This can be estimated with the help of any one of the Training Based, Semiblind and Blind Channel estimation algorithms. This paper presents various channel estimation algorithms, optimization techniques and their effective utilization in MIMO-OFDM for modern wireless LTE systems.

    2006-01-01

    Reasonable bit error rate performance requires perfect channel state information (CSI) in traditional turbo equalization (TE), which is hard to obtain in practice. Soft and hard iterative algorithms have been developed to address the channel estimation problem with the performance of the soft iterative channel estimate based on the recursive least square algorithm. This paper presents an analysis of the performance of hard iterative channel estimation (HICE) based on the least mean square algorithm. The analysis uses a cost function with the hard decision on the TE output. An iterative channel correction (ICC) algorithm based on the gradient descent algorithm is used to iteratively minimize the cost function. The simulation results agree with the theoretical lower bound for the mean square error (MSE) of the estimated channels. Simulations show that, given an imperfect CSI with an MSE below the upper bound, the linear minimum mean squared error TE (LMMSE-TE) using the ICC has only small performance degradation compared to that with a perfect CSI, while the traditional LMMSE-TE suffers from severe error floor effect even with more iterations.

    2008-01-01

    New training sequences and frame structure are proposed to estimate time-varying channel for multiple-input multiple-output and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. The training sequences are modulatable orthogonal polyphase sequences, which have both good autocorrelations and cross-correlations. The channel impulse response (CIR) can be obtained by measuring the correlation between the received training sequence and the locally generated training sequence. The training sequences are used as guard interval instead of cyclic prefix, which not only improve the transmission efficiency but also enable the channel estimator to track time-varying channel. The simulation results show that the proposed method has about 2dB SNR gain over conventional methods in fast time-varying channel.

  12. A New Adaptive Channel Estimation for Frequency Selective Time Varying Fading OFDM Channels

    CERN Document Server

    Afifi, Wessam M

    2010-01-01

    In this paper a new algorithm for adaptive dynamic channel estimation for frequency selective time varying fading OFDM channels is proposed. The new algorithm adopts a new strategy that successfully increases OFDM symbol rate. Instead of using a fixed training pilot sequence, the proposed algorithm uses a logic controller to choose among several available training patterns. The controller choice is based on the cross-correlation between pilot symbols over two consecutive time instants (which is considered to be a suitable measure of channel stationarity) as well as the deviation from the desired BER. Simulation results of the system performance confirm the effectiveness of this new channel estimation technique over traditional non-adaptive estimation methods in increasing the data rate of OFDM symbols while maintaining the same probability of error.

  13. Comparison of Channel Estimation Protocols for Coherent AF Relaying Networks in the Presence of Additive Noise and LO Phase Noise

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Channel estimation protocols for wireless two-hop networks with amplify-and-forward (AF relays are compared. We consider multiuser relaying networks, where the gain factors are chosen such that the signals from all relays add up coherently at the destinations. While the destinations require channel knowledge in order to decode, our focus lies on the channel estimates that are used to calculate the relay gains. Since knowledge of the compound two-hop channels is generally not sufficient to do this, the protocols considered here measure all single-hop coefficients in the network. We start from the observation that the direction in which the channels are measured determines (1 the number of channel uses required to estimate all coefficient and (2 the need for global carrier phase reference. Four protocols are identified that differ in the direction in which the first-hop and the second-hop channels are measured. We derive a sensible measure for the accuracy of the channel estimates in the presence of additive noise and phase noise and compare the protocols based on this measure. Finally, we provide a quantitative performance comparison for a simple single-user application example. It is important to note that the results can be used to compare the channel estimation protocols for any two-hop network configuration and gain allocation scheme.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available As miniature-sized embedded computing platforms are ubiquitously deployed to our everyday environments, the issue of managing their power usage becomes important, especially when they are used in energy harvesting based self-organizing networks. One way to provide these devices with continuous power is to utilize RF-based energy transfer. Previous research in RF-based information and energy transfer builds up on the assumption that perfect channel estimation is easily achievable. However, as our preliminary experiments and many previous literature in wireless network systems show, making perfect estimations of the wireless channel is extremely challenging due to their quality fluctuations. To better reflect reality, in this work, we introduce an adaptive power allocation and splitting (APAS scheme which takes imperfect channel estimations into consideration. Our evaluation results show that the proposed APAS scheme achieves near-optimal performances for transferring energy and data over a single RF transmission.

    The concepts of MIMO MC-CDMA are not new but the new technologies to improve their functioning are an emerging area of research. In general, most mobile communication systems transmit bits of information in the radio space to the receiver. The radio channels in mobile radio systems are usually multipath fading channels, which cause inter-symbol interference (ISI) in the received signal. To remove ISI from the signal, there is a need of strong equalizer. In this thesis we have focused on simulating the MIMO MC-CDMA systems in MATLAB and designed the channel estimation for them.

This study studies the scheme of sentiment estimate by using the users’ trustworthy relationships for evaluating sentiment delivering. First, we address an overview of sentiment delivering estimate scheme and propose its related definitions, that is, trust chain among users, sentiment semantics, and sentiment ontology. Second, this study proposes the trust chain model and its evaluation method, which is composed of evaluation of atomic, serial, parallel, and combined trust chains. Then, we propose sentiment modeling method by presenting its modeling rules. Further, we propose the sentiment delivering estimate scheme from two aspects: explicit and implicit sentiment delivering estimate schemes, based on trust chain and sentiment modeling method. Finally, examinations and results are given to further explain effectiveness and feasibility of our scheme.

  17. A Parameter Estimation Scheme for Multiscale Kalman Smoother (MKS) Algorithm Used in Precipitation Data Fusion

    Wang, Shugong; Liang, Xu

    2013-01-01

    A new approach is presented in this paper to effectively obtain parameter estimations for the Multiscale Kalman Smoother (MKS) algorithm. This new approach has demonstrated promising potentials in deriving better data products based on data of different spatial scales and precisions. Our new approach employs a multi-objective (MO) parameter estimation scheme (called MO scheme hereafter), rather than using the conventional maximum likelihood scheme (called ML scheme) to estimate the MKS parameters. Unlike the ML scheme, the MO scheme is not simply built on strict statistical assumptions related to prediction errors and observation errors, rather, it directly associates the fused data of multiple scales with multiple objective functions in searching best parameter estimations for MKS through optimization. In the MO scheme, objective functions are defined to facilitate consistency among the fused data at multiscales and the input data at their original scales in terms of spatial patterns and magnitudes. The new approach is evaluated through a Monte Carlo experiment and a series of comparison analyses using synthetic precipitation data. Our results show that the MKS fused precipitation performs better using the MO scheme than that using the ML scheme. Particularly, improvements are significant compared to that using the ML scheme for the fused precipitation associated with fine spatial resolutions. This is mainly due to having more criteria and constraints involved in the MO scheme than those included in the ML scheme. The weakness of the original ML scheme that blindly puts more weights onto the data associated with finer resolutions is overcome in our new approach.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available In this work an iterative time domain Least Squares (LS based channel estimation method using superimposed training (ST for a Multiple Input Multiple Output Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM system over time varying frequency selective fading channels is proposed. The performance of the channel estimator is analyzed in terms of the Mean Square Estimation Error (MSEE and its impact on the uncoded Bit Error Rate (BER of the MIMO-OFDM system is studied. A new selection criterion for the training sequences that jointly optimizes the MSEE and the BER of the OFDM system is proposed. Chirp based sequences are proposed and shown to satisfy the same. These are compared with the other sequences proposed in the literature and are found to yield a superior performance. The sequences, one for each transmitting antenna, offers fairness through providing equal interference in all the data carriers unlike earlier proposals. The effectiveness of the mathematical analysis presented is demonstrated through a comparison with the simulation studies. Experimental studies are carried out to study and validate the improved performance of the proposed scheme. The scheme is applied to the IEEE 802.16e OFDM standard and a case is made with the required design of the sequence.

  20. Crosstalk Channel Estimation via Standardized Two-Port Measurements

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2009-03-01

    Full Text Available The emerging multiuser transmission techniques for enabling higher data rates in the copper-access network relies upon accurate knowledge of the twisted-pair cables. In particular, the square-magnitude of the crosstalk channels between the transmission lines are of interest for crosstalk-mitigation techniques. Acquiring such information normally requires dedicated apparatus since crosstalk-channel measurement is not included in the current digital subscriber line (DSL standards. We address this problem by presenting a standard-compliant estimator for the square-magnitude of the frequency-dependent crosstalk channels that uses only functionality existing in today's standards. The proposed estimator is evaluated by laboratory experiments with standard-compliant DSL modems and real copper access network cables. The estimation results are compared with both reference measurements and with a widely used crosstalk model. The results indicate that the proposed estimator obtains an estimate of the square-magnitude of the crosstalk channels with a mean deviation from the reference measurement less than 3 dB for most frequencies.

    2005-01-01

    Secret sharing and digital signature is an important research area in information security and has wide applications in such fields as safeguarding and legal use of confidential information, secure multiparty computation and electronic commerce. But up to now, study of signature based on general vector space secret sharing is very weak. Aiming at this drawback, the authors did some research on vector space secret sharing against cheaters, and proposed an efficient but secure vector space secret sharing based multi-signature scheme, which is implemented in two channels. In this scheme, the group signature can be easily produced if an authorized subset of participants pool their secret shadows and it is impossible for them to generate a group signature if an unauthorized subset of participants pool their secret shadows. The validity of the group signature can be verified by means of verification equations. A group signature of authorized subset of participants cannot be impersonated by any other set of participants. Moreover, the suspected forgery can be traced, and the malicious participants can be detected in the scheme. None of several possible attacks can successfully break this scheme.

    2011-01-01

    The causal cognitive relay channel (CRC) has two sender-receiver pairs, in which the second sender obtains information from the first sender causally and assists the transmission of both senders. In this paper, we study both the full- and half-duplex modes. In each mode, we propose two new coding schemes built successively upon one another to illustrate the impact of different coding techniques. The first scheme called \\emph{partial decode-forward binning} (PDF-binning) combines the ideas of partial decode-forward relaying and Gelfand-Pinsker binning. The second scheme called \\emph{Han-Kobayashi partial decode-forward binning} (HK-PDF-binning) combines PDF-binning with Han-Kobayashi coding by further splitting rates and applying superposition coding, conditional binning and relaxed joint decoding. In both schemes, the second sender decodes a part of the message from the first sender, then uses Gelfand-Pinsker binning technique to bin against the decoded message, but in such a way that allows both state nullif...

    Full Text Available A new chaotic scheme named Flipped Chaotic On-Off Keying (FCOOK is proposed for binary transmission. In FCOOK, the low correlation value between the stationary signal and its mirrored version is utilized. Transmitted signal for binary 1 is a chaotic segment added to its time flipped (mirrored version within one bit duration, while in binary 0, no transmission takes place within the same bit duration. The proposed scheme is compared with the standard chaotic systems: Differential Chaos Shift Keying (DCSK and Correlation Delay Shift Keying (CDSK. The Bit Error Rate (BER of FCOOK is studied analytically based on Gaussian approximation method. Results show that the BER performance of FCOOK outperforms DCSK and CDSK in AWGN channel environment and with various Eb/No levels. Additionally, FCOOK offers a double bit rate compared with the standard DCSK.

    2011-01-01

    A sensor network is used for distributed joint mean and variance estimation, in a single time snapshot. Sensors observe a signal embedded in noise, which are phase modulated using a constant-modulus scheme and transmitted over a Gaussian multiple-access channel to a fusion center, where the mean and variance are estimated jointly, using an asymptotically minimum-variance estimator, which is shown to decouple into simple individual estimators of the mean and the variance. The constant-modulus phase modulation scheme ensures a fixed transmit power, robust estimation across several sensing noise distributions, as well as an SNR estimate that requires a single set of transmissions from the sensors to the fusion center, unlike the amplify-and-forward approach. The performance of the estimators of the mean and variance are evaluated in terms of asymptotic variance, which is used to evaluate the performance of the SNR estimator in the case of Gaussian, Laplace and Cauchy sensing noise distributions. For each sensing...

    Full Text Available Tracking the channel impulse response in systems based on the IEEE 802.11p standard, the most widely accepted standard for the physical layer in vehicular area networks (VANETs, is still an open research topic. In this paper we aim to improve previously proposed channel estimators by utilizing data aided algorithm that includes the channel decoding to enhance the quality of the estimated data. Moreover we propose a novel technique that exploits information provided by external sensors like GPS or speedometer, usually present in vehicles. The algorithm proposed so far has been analyzed in non-line-of-sight link conditions; in this paper we present an analysis of performances in the line-of-sight condition as well. Simulations show that both proposals give considerable improvements in terms of packet error rate and channel estimation error in the highway scenario which is surely the most stressing environment for the channel response tracker.

    A Bayesian estimation method to separate multicomponent signals with single channel observation is presented in this paper. By using the basis function projection, the component separation becomes a problem of limited parameter estimation. Then, a Bayesian model for estimating parameters is set up. The reversible jump MCMC (Monte Carlo Markov Chain) algorithmis adopted to perform the Bayesian computation. The method can jointly estimate the parameters of each component and the component number. Simulation results demonstrate that the method has low SNR threshold and better performance.

    New techniques in cross-layer wireless networks are building demand for ubiquitous channel sounding, that is, the capability to measure channel impulse response (CIR) with any standard wireless network and node. Towards that goal, we present a software-defined IEEE 802.11b receiver and CIR estimation system with little additional computational complexity compared to 802.11b reception alone. The system implementation, using the universal software radio peripheral (USRP) and GNU Radio, is described and compared to previous work. By overcoming computational limitations and performing direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DS-SS) matched filtering on the USRP, we enable high-quality yet inexpensive CIR estimation. We validate the channel sounder and present a drive test campaign which measures hundreds of channels between WiFi access points and an in-vehicle receiver in urban and suburban areas.

Because of the directFFT channel estimation algorithm existing energy spectrumleakage problems, the optimized FFT channel estimationalgorithm based on the Hamming windowed function is putforward.

Channelestimation techniques for OFDM systems, based on combtypepilot arrangement, over frequency-selective Rican andtime-varying fading channel are investigated. Theadvantage of comb-type pilot arrangement, in channelestimation, is the ability to track the variation in thechannel, which is the main reason for inter-carrierinterference modeled as an additive white Gaussian noise,leading to an increase in the noise level.

    A practical adaptive turbo coded modulation (TuCM) scheme was proposed and its adaptive method was described. With some hardware considerations, a suboptimal optimization algorithm that the number of fading regions is variable was put forward. Furthermore, the cutoff fade depth of power adaptation was modified to reduce the interruption probability. The results show that the proposed adaptive TuCM comes within 3 dB of Rayleigh fading channel capacity, and exhibits about 3 dB power gain relative to the conventional adaptive trellis-coded modulation (TCM), and is easy to realize by hardware.

    Full Text Available For multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO wireless communication system with minimum mean square error (MMSE detection, a new scheme of power allocation between pilot and data symbols is investigated under MMSE channel estimation in this paper. First, we propose a novel soft-output MMSE MIMO detector by taking into consideration the channel estimation error. Then, through the application of random matrix theorem, we propose an efficient scheme for power allocation between pilot and data symbols which maximizes the lower bound of postprocessing signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR for MIMO systems with equal number of transmitter and receiver antennas. We have proven the existence and uniqueness of the proposed optimal power allocation settings. Furthermore, our analysis shows that the proposed power allocation is also valid and applicable for those MIMO systems with unequal number of transmitter and receiver antennas. Finally, our extensive simulation results have validated this novel power allocation scheme.

In this paper, we study the impact of the asymmetry on the performance of channel estimation and precoding in downlink BS cooperative multiple-antenna multiple-carrier systems. We first present three linear estimators which jointly estimate the channel coefficients from users in different cells with minimum mean square error, robust design and least square criterion, and then study the impact of uplink channel asymmetry on their performance. It is shown that when the large scale channel information is exploited for channel estimation, using non-orthogonal training sequences among users in different cells leads to minor performance loss. Next, we analyze the impact of downlink channel asymmetry on the performance of precoding with channel estimation errors. Our analysis shows that although the estimation errors of weak cross links are large, the resulting r...

    MOHANTY Prabir Kumar; KHATUA Kishanjit Kumar

    2014-01-01

    Results of research into a compound channel having width ratio (a) in excess of 11 are presented in the form of boun-dary shear distributions across the compound cross section. New relationship is derived between the percentage of shear carried by the flood plains (%S fp ) and the percentage of area occupied by the flood plains (%Afp ) . The equation so derived is taken as the basis to develop a new methodology to predict the stage discharge relationship specifically for wide compound channels using Darcy’s friction factor ( f ) for the main channel and flood plain regions. The methodology also is used for compound channels with smaller width ratios by applying the appropriate relation for %S fp derived earlier by different researchers and seems to work well. Next, as a corollary to the methodology, separate formulae are proposed to estimate flow distribution in main channel and flood plain regions. The proposed method and its corollary are tested for their validity against well-published small-scale data series of pre-vious researchers along with some large-scale data series from EPSRC-FCF (A-Series) compound channel experiments and very good agreement is observed between the measured values and predicted values for total flow as well as zonal distribution of flow. The methodology is also applied to some compound river section data published in literature and is found to serve well the purpose of predicting flow in real world application. This new method gives the least RMS value of error for discharge prediction compared with some other well-known methods used for estimating stage-discharge relation in compound channels by considering all data sets.

    In this paper, channel estimation and data detection for multihop relaying orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system is investigated under time-varying channel. Different from previous works, which highly depend on the statistical information of the doubly-selective channel (DSC) and noise to deliver accurate channel estimation and data detection results, we focus on more practical scenarios with unknown channel orders and Doppler frequencies. Firstly, we integrate the multilink, multihop channel matrices into one composite channel matrix. Then, we formulate the unknown channel using generalized complex exponential basis expansion model (GCE-BEM) with a large oversampling factor to introduce channel sparsity on delay-Doppler domain. To enable the identification of nonzero entries, sparsity enhancing Gaussian distributions with Gamma hyperpriors are adopted. An iterative algorithm is developed under variational inference (VI) framework. The proposed algorithm iteratively estimate the channel, re...

  19. A Chaos MIMO Transmission Scheme for Channel Coding and Physical-Layer Security

    Okamoto, Eiji

    In recent wireless communication systems, security is ensured mainly in the upper-layer techniques such as a password or a cryptography processing. However, security needs not be restricted to the upper-layer and the addition of physical-layer security also would yield a much more robust system. Therefore, in this paper, we exploit chaos communication and propose a chaos multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission scheme which achieves physical-layer security and additional channel-coding gain. A chaotic modulation symbol is multiplied to the data to be transmitted at each MIMO antenna to exploit the MIMO antenna diversity, and at the receiver, the joint MIMO detection and chaos decoding is done by maximum likelihood decoding (MLD). The conventional chaos modulation suffers from bit error rate (BER) performance degradation, while the coding gain is obtained in the proposed scheme by the chaos modulation in MIMO. We evaluate the performances of the proposed scheme by an analysis and computer simulations.

    Full Text Available Abstract MMSE-FDE can improve the transmission performance of OFDM combined with time division multiplexing (OFDM/TDM, but knowledge of the channel state information and the noise variance is required to compute the MMSE weight. In this paper, a performance evaluation of OFDM/TDM using MMSE-FDE with pilot-assisted channel estimation over a fast fading channel is presented. To improve the tracking ability against fast fading a robust pilot-assisted channel estimation is presented that uses time-domain filtering on a slot-by-slot basis and frequency-domain interpolation. We derive the mean square error (MSE of the channel estimator and then discuss a tradeoff between improving the tracking ability against fading and the noise reduction. The achievable bit error rate (BER performance is evaluated by computer simulation and compared with conventional OFDM. It is shown that the OFDM/TDM using MMSE-FDE achieves a lower BER and a better tracking ability against fast fading in comparison with conventional OFDM.

  1. A Joint Link and Channel Assignment Routing Scheme for Cognitive Radio Networks

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Cognitive radio (CR is a promising technology that enables opportunistic utilization of the temporarily vacant spectrum to mitigate the spectrum scarcity in wireless communications. Since secondary users (SUs should vacate the channel in use immediately after detecting the reappearances of primary users (PUs in cognitive radio networks (CRNs, the route reliability is a distinctive challenge for routing in CRNs. Furthermore, the throughput requirement of an SU session should be satisfied and it is always preferable to select a route with less negative influence on other current or latish sessions. To account for the route reliability challenge, we study the joint link and channel assignment routing problem for CRNs. It is formulated in a form of integer nonlinear programming (INLP, which is NP-hard, with the objective of minimizing the interference of a new route to other routes while providing route reliability and throughput guarantee. An on-demand route discovery algorithm is proposed to find reliable candidate paths, while a joint link and channel assignment routing algorithm with sequentially-connected-link coordination is proposed to choose the near-optimal route for improving the route reliability and minimizing negative influence. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm achieves considerable improvement over existing schemes in both route reliability and throughput.

    This paper presents a tool for the analysis, and simulation of direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation in wireless mobile communication systems over the fading channel. It reviews two methods of Direction of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm. The standard Multiple Signal Classification (MUSIC) can be obtained from the subspace based methods. In improved MUSIC procedure called Cyclic MUSIC, it can automatically classify the signals as desired and undesired based on the known spectral correlation property and estimate only the desired signal's DOA. In this paper, the DOA estimation algorithm using the de-noising pre-processing based on time-frequency conversion analysis was proposed, and the performances were analyzed. This is focused on the improvement of DOA estimation at a lower SNR and interference environment. This paper provides a fairly complete image of the performance and statistical efficiency of each of above two methods with QPSK signal.

    2012-11-07

    The diffusion of a suspended brownian particle along a sinusoidally corrugated narrow channel is investigated to assess the validity of two competing analytical schemes, both based on effective one-dimensional kinetic equations, one continuous (entropic channel scheme) and the other discrete (random walker scheme). For narrow pores, the characteristic diffusion time scale is represented by the mean first exit time out of a channel compartment. Such a diffusion time has been analytically calculated in both approximate schemes; the two analytical results coincide in leading order and are in excellent agreement with the simulation data.

    Full Text Available We present an ambulatory cognitive state classification system to assess the subject's mental load based on EEG measurements. The ambulatory cognitive state estimator is utilized in the context of a real-time augmented cognition (AugCog system that aims to enhance the cognitive performance of a human user through computer-mediated assistance based on assessments of cognitive states using physiological signals including, but not limited to, EEG. This paper focuses particularly on the offline channel selection and feature projection phases of the design and aims to present mutual-information-based techniques that use a simple sample estimator for this quantity. Analyses conducted on data collected from 3 subjects performing 2 tasks (n-back/Larson at 2 difficulty levels (low/high demonstrate that the proposed mutual-information-based dimensionality reduction scheme can achieve up to 94% cognitive load estimation accuracy.

    Jo, Sujang; Bang, Hyochoong; Leeghim, Henzeh

    2017-09-01

    A new practical approach to estimate the body angular velocity of maneuvering spacecraft using only vector measurements is presented. Several algorithms have been introduced in previous studies to estimate the angular velocity directly from vector measurements at two time instants. However, these direct methods are based on the constant angular velocity assumption, and estimation results may be invalid for attitude maneuvers. In this paper, an estimation scheme to consider attitude disturbances and control torques is proposed. The effects of angular velocity variation on estimation results are quantitatively evaluated, and an algorithm to minimize estimation errors is designed by selecting the optimal time interval between vector measurements. Without losing the simplicity of direct methods, the design parameters of the algorithm are restricted to the expected covariance of disturbances and the maximum angular acceleration. By applying the proposed estimation scheme, gyroscopes can be directly replaced by attitude sensors such as star trackers.

    Tepedelenlioglu, Cihan

    2009-01-01

    A distributed estimation scheme where the sensors transmit with constant modulus signals over a multiple access channel is considered. The proposed estimator is shown to be strongly consistent for any sensing noise distribution in the i.i.d. case both for a per-sensor power constraint, and a total power constraint. When the distributions of the sensing noise are not identical, a bound on the variances is shown to establish strong consistency. The estimator is shown to be asymptotically normal with a variance (AsV) that depends on the characteristic function of the sensing noise. Optimization of the AsV is considered with respect to a transmission phase parameter for a variety of noise distributions exhibiting differing levels of impulsive behavior. The robustness of the estimator to impulsive sensing noise distributions such as those with positive excess kurtosis, or those that do not have finite moments is shown. The proposed estimator is favorably compared with the amplify and forward scheme under an impuls...

    2012-01-01

    针对循环延时分集OFDM系统中的时变信道估计导频开销较大问题,提出了一种递归的改进期望最大化(EM)信道估计方法。该方法首先建立时变信道基扩展模型(BEM)与符号时间平均信道脉冲响应之间的数学关系,然后用其预测EM信道估计的初值,从而一方面利用了BEM参数的慢变特性来提高时变信道的预测精度,另一方面利用了BEM的简约化参数特性来保持算法实时性。仿真结果表明,当信噪比大于15 dB时,改进方法有效降低了判决辅助方法的误差传播效应,其误码性能接近理想信道时的性能。%For reducing the pilot overhead used in time-varying channel estimation of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing system with cyclic delay diversity (CDD-OFDM), an improved expectation-maximization (EM) based channel estimation scheme with recur- sive fashion was proposed. In this scheme, the mathematical relationship between the basis expansion model (BEM) of time-varying channels and the symbol time-averaged channel impulse response was firstly established and then used to predict the initial value of the EM based channel estimator, therefore the parsimonious parameterization properties of the BEM and the slow variations of the BEM pa- rameters could be exploited to improve the channel prediction accuracy and make the algorithm real-time, respectively. Simulation re- sults showed that when the signal to noise ratio is above 15 dB, the proposed scheme effectively reduces the error propagation of deci- sion directed channel tracking scheme, and has nearly the same bit error rate performance as that with perfect channel state informa- tion.

  12. Weighted-noise threshold based channel estimation for OFDM systems

    2015-10-01

    Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technology is the key to evolving telecommunication standards including 3GPP-LTE Advanced and WiMAX. Reliability of any OFDM system increases with improvedmean square error performance (MSE) of its channel estimator (CE). Particularly, a least squares (LS) based CE incorporating a time-domain denoising threshold, enables better MSE performance, while avoiding the need for a-priori knowledge of channel statistics (KCS). Existing optimal time-domain thresholds exhibit suboptimal behavior for completely unavailable KCS environments. This is because they involve consistent estimation of one or more KCS parameters, and corresponding estimation errors introduce severe degradation in MSE performance of the CE. To overcome the MSE degradation, this paper proposes a weighted-noise threshold, by introducing a modified hypothesis-testing-problem (HTP) interpretation. Derivation of resulting analytical MSE expression is also provided. Results of OFDM system simulations carried out in rayleigh faded ITU-TU6 and WiMAX-SUI4 channel environments with U-shaped power spectral densities, are presented. The performance results show that, compared to many of the existing thresholds, the proposed threshold renders better MSE performance to the CE and higher reliability to the OFDM system in terms of better bit error rate (BER) performance.

  13. Achievable Rates of Secure Transmission in Gaussian MISO Channel with Imperfect Main Channel Estimation

    KAUST Repository

    Zhou, Xinyu

    2016-03-15

    A Gaussian multiple-input single-output (MISO) fading channel is considered. We assume that the transmitter, in addition to the statistics of all channel gains, is aware instantaneously of a noisy version of the channel to the legitimate receiver. On the other hand, the legitimate receiver is aware instantaneously of its channel to the transmitter, whereas the eavesdropper instantaneously knows all channel gains. We evaluate an achievable rate using a Gaussian input without indexing an auxiliary random variable. A sufficient condition for beamforming to be optimal is provided. When the number of transmit antennas is large, beamforming also turns out to be optimal. In this case, the maximum achievable rate can be expressed in a simple closed form and scales with the logarithm of the number of transmit antennas. Furthermore, in the case when a noisy estimate of the eavesdropper’s channel is also available at the transmitter, we introduce the SNR difference and the SNR ratio criterions and derive the related optimal transmission strategies and the corresponding achievable rates.

    Multipath arrivals in an Ultra-WideBand (UWB) channel have a long time intervals between clusters and rays where the signal takes on zero or negligible values.It is precisely the signal sparsity of the impulse response of the UWB channel that is exploited in this work aiming at UWB channel estimation based on Compressed Sensing (CS).However,these multipath arrivals mainly depend on the channel environments that generate different sparse levels (low-sparse or high-sparse) of the UWB channels.According to this basis,we have analyzed the two most basic recovery algorithms,one based on linear programming Basis Pursuit (BP),another using greedy method Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (OMP),and chosen the best recovery algorithm which are suitable to the sparse level for each type of channel environment.Besides,the results of this work is an open topic for further research aimed at creating a optimal algorithm specially for application of CS based UWB systems.

    Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems hold the potential to drastically improve the spectral efficiency and link reliability in future wireless communications systems. A particularly promising candidate for next-generation fixed and mobile wireless systems is the combination of MIMO technology with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). OFDM has become the standard method because of its advantages over single carrier modulation schemes on multipath, frequency selective fading channels. Doppler frequency shifts are expected in fast-moving environments, causing the channel to vary in time, that degrades the performance of OFDM systems. In this paper, we present a time-varying channel modeling and estimation method based on the Discrete Evolutionary Transform to obtain a complete characterization of MIMO-OFDM channels. Performance of the proposed method is evaluated and compared on different levels of channel noise and Doppler frequency shifts.

  17. Optimal state estimation over communication channels with random delays

    2013-04-01

    This paper is concerned with the optimal estimation of linear systems over unreliable communication channels with random delays. The measurements are delivered without time stamp, and the probabilities of time delays are assumed to be known. Since the estimation is time-driven, the actual time delays are converted into virtual time delays among the formulation. The receiver of estimation node stores the sum of arrived measurements between two adjacent processing time instants and also counts the number of arrived measurements. The original linear system is modeled as an extended system with uncertain observation to capture the feature of communication, then the optimal estimation algorithm of systems with uncertain observations is proposed. Additionally, a numerical simulation is presented to show the performance of this work. © 2013 The Franklin Institute.

  19. Image transmission over OFDM channel with rate allocation scheme and minimum peak-toaverage power ratio

    CERN Document Server

    Mohammed, Usama S

    2010-01-01

    This paper proposes new scheme for efficient rate allocation in conjunction with reducing peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. Modification of the set partitioning in hierarchical trees (SPIHT) image coder is proposed to generate four different groups of bit-stream relative to its significances. The significant bits, the sign bits, the set bits and the refinement bits are transmitted in four different groups. The proposed method for reducing the PAPR utilizes twice the unequal error protection (UEP), using the Read-Solomon codes (RS), in conjunction with bit-rate allocation and selective interleaving to provide minimum PAPR. The output bit-stream from the source code (SPIHT) will be started by the most significant types of bits (first group of bits). The optimal unequal error protection (UEP) of the four groups is proposed based on the channel destortion. The proposed structure provides significant improvement in bit error rate (BER) performance. Per...

    Full Text Available Space-time block coding (STBC provides substantial diversity advantages with a low decoding complexity. However, these codes are not designed to achieve coding gains. Outer codes should be concatenated with STBC to provide additional coding gain. In this paper, we analyze the performance of concatenated trellis-coded STBC schemes over shadowed Rician frequency-flat fading channels. We derive an exact pairwise error probability (PEP expression that reveals the dominant factors affecting performance. Based on the derived PEP, in conjunction with the transfer function technique, we also present upper bounds on the bit error rate (BER, which are further shown to be tight through a Monte-Carlo simulation study.

    Full Text Available Steganography is the art of hiding the fact that communication is taking place, by hiding information in other information. The motivation for this work includes provision of protection of information during transmission without any detection of information. We also propose a new technique namely „A New Steganography Technique Based on Difference Scheme of RGB Channels and Text Using Histogram Analysis‟. The proposed technique can encode any colored image files in order to protect confidential text data from unauthorized access. It can be applied to a very small images (24 × 24 as well as large images (1024 × 1024. We use Image quality parameters Peak Signal to Noise Ratio and Mean Square Error. The proposed method has higher PSNR value and lower MSE values. The PSNR value is greater than 50 and MSE value is in fractions.

    Paris, M A G; Serafini, A; De Siena, S

    2003-01-01

    We present a systematic study of the purity for Gaussian states of single-mode continuous variable systems. We prove the connection of purity to observable quantities for these states, and show that the joint measurement of two conjugate quadratures is necessary and sufficient to determine the purity at any time. The statistical reliability and the range of applicability of the proposed measurement scheme is tested by means of Monte Carlo simulated experiments. We then consider the dynamics of purity in noisy channels. We derive an evolution equation for the purity of general Gaussian states both in thermal and squeezed thermal baths. We show that purity is maximized at any given time for an initial coherent state evolving in a thermal bath, or for an initial squeezed state evolving in a squeezed thermal bath whose asymptotic squeezing is orthogonal to that of the input state.

  3. Time-domain training sequences design for MIMO OFDM channel estimation

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Zhen LU; Jian-hua GE

    2008-01-01

    This paper describes a Least Squares (LS) channel estimation scheme for MIMO OFDM systems based on time-domain training sequence. We first compute the minimum mean square error (MSE) of the LS channel estimation, and then derive the optimal criteria of the training sequence with respect to the minimum MSE. It is shown that optimal time-domain training sequence should satisfy two criteria. First, the autocorrelation of the sequence transmitted from the same antenna is an impulse function in a region longer than the channel maximum delay. Second, the cross-correlation between sequences transmitted from different antennas is zero in this region. Simulation results show that the estimator using optimal time-domain training sequences has better performance than that using optimal frequency training sequence at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). To reduce the training overhead, a suboptimal training sequence is also proposed. Comparing with optimal training sequence, it has low computation complexity and high transmission efficiency at the expense of little performance degradation.

    2011-01-01

    We investigate the secure connectivity of wireless sensor networks under the random key distribution scheme of Eschenauer and Gligor. Unlike recent work which was carried out under the assumption of full visibility, here we assume a (simplified) communication model where unreliable wireless links are represented as on/off channels. We present conditions on how to scale the model parameters so that the network i) has no secure node which is isolated and ii) is securely connected, both with high probability when the number of sensor nodes becomes large. The results are given in the form of full zero-one laws, and constitute the first complete analysis of the EG scheme under non-full visibility. Through simulations these zero-one laws are shown to be valid also under a more realistic communication model, i.e., the disk model. The relations to the Gupta and Kumar's conjecture on the connectivity of geometric random graphs with randomly deleted edges are also discussed.

  5. Low-complexity fractional phase estimation for totally blind channel estimation

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    Xu Wang; Tao Yang; Bo Hu

    2015-01-01

    To remove the scalar ambiguity in conventional blind channel estimation algorithms, total y blind channel estimation (TBCE) is proposed by using multiple constel ations. To estimate the unknown scalar, its phase is decomposed into a fractional phase and an integer phase. However, the maximum-likelihood (ML) algorithm for the fractional phase does not have closed-form solutions and suffers from high computational complexity. By ex-ploring the structures of widely used constel ations, this paper proposes a low-complexity fractional phase estimation algorithm which requires no exhaustive search. Analytical expressions of the asymptotic mean squared error (MSE) are also derived. The theo-retical analysis and simulation results indicate that the proposed fractional phase estimation algorithm exhibits almost the same performance as the ML algorithm but with significantly reduced computational burden.

  6. Enhanced signal-to-noise ratio estimation for tropospheric lidar channels

    Science.gov (United States)

    Saeed, Umar; Barragan, Rubén; Rocadenbosch, Francesc

    2016-04-01

    This works combines the fields of tropospheric lidar remote sensing and signal processing to come up with a robust signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) estimator apt for elastic and Raman channels. The estimator uses a combined low-pass / high-pass filtering scheme along with high-order statistics (kurtosis) to estimate the range-dependent signal and noise components with minimum distortion. While low-pass filtering is used to estimate the range-dependent signal level, high-pass filtering is used to estimate the noise component with minimum distortion. From this noise component estimate (a random realization) the noise level (e.g., variance) is computed as a function of range along with error bars. The minimum-distortion specification determines the optimal cut-off de-noising filter frequency and, in turn, the spatial resolution of the SNR estimation algorithm. The proposed SNR estimator has a much wider dynamic range of operation than well-known classic SNR estimation techniques, in which the SNR is directly computed from the mean and standard deviation of the measured noise-corrupted lidar signal along successive adjacent range intervals and where the spatial resolution is just a subjective input from the user's side. Aligned with ACTRIS (http://www.actris.net) WP on "optimization of the processing chain and Single-Calculus Chain (SCC)" the proposed topic is of application to assess lidar reception channel performance and confidence on the detected atmospheric morphology (e.g., cloud base and top, and location of aerosol layers). The SNR algorithm is tested against the classic SNR estimation approach using test-bed synthetic lidar data modelling the UPC multi-spectral lidar. Towards this end, the Nd:YAG UPC elastic-Raman lidar provides aerosol channels in the near-infrared (1064 nm), visible (532 nm), and ultra-violet (355 nm) as well as aerosol Raman and water-vapour channels with fairly varying SNR levels. The SNR estimator is also used to compare SNR levels between

  7. Bit Error Rate Performance Analysis of a Threshold-Based Generalized Selection Combining Scheme in Nakagami Fading Channels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sulyman Ahmed Iyanda

    2005-01-01

    Full Text Available The severity of fading on mobile communication channels calls for the combining of multiple diversity sources to achieve acceptable error rate performance. Traditional approaches perform the combining of the different diversity sources using either the conventional selective diversity combining (CSC, equal-gain combining (EGC, or maximal-ratio combining (MRC schemes. CSC and MRC are the two extremes of compromise between performance quality and complexity. Some researches have proposed a generalized selection combining scheme (GSC that combines the best M branches out of the L available diversity resources (M ≤ L . In this paper, we analyze a generalized selection combining scheme based on a threshold criterion rather than a fixed-size subset of the best channels. In this scheme, only those diversity branches whose energy levels are above a specified threshold are combined. Closed-form analytical solutions for the BER performances of this scheme over Nakagami fading channels are derived. We also discuss the merits of this scheme over GSC.

In the proposed method, the reduced-dimensional transformation technique is adopted to eliminate the redundant elements. Then, exploiting the noncircularity of signals, a joint sparsity-aware scheme based on the reweighted l1 norm penalty is formulated for DOA estimation, in which the diagonal elements of the weight matrix are the coefficients of the noncircular MUSIC-like (NC MUSIC-like) spectrum. Compared to the existing l1 norm penalty-based methods, the proposed scheme provides higher angular resolution and better DOA estimation performance. Results from numerical experiments are used to show the effectiveness of our proposed method. PMID:27089345

  10. Novel coherent receivers for AF distributed STBC using disintegrated channel estimation

    KAUST Repository

    Khan, Fahd Ahmed

    2011-05-01

    For a single relay network, disintegrated channel estimation (DCE), where the source-relay channel is estimated at the relay and the relay-destination channel is estimated at the destination, gives better performance than the cascaded channel estimation. We derive novel receivers for the relay network with disintegrated channel estimation. The derived receivers do not require channel estimation at the destination, as they use the received pilot signals and the source-relay channel estimate for decoding directly. We also consider the effect of quantized source-relay channel estimate on the performance of the designed receivers. Simulation results show that a performance gain of up to 2.2 dB can be achieved by the new receivers, compared with the conventional mismatched coherent receiver with DCE. © 2011 IEEE.

    2005-03-01

    Full Text Available An m-sequence (PN sequence preestimator scheme for direct-sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS signal acquisition by using block sequence estimation (BSE is proposed and analyzed. The proposed scheme consists of an estimator and a verifier which work according to the PN sequence chip clock, and provides not only the enhanced chip estimates with a threshold decision logic and one-chip error correction among the first m received chips, but also the reliability check of the estimates with additional decision logic. The probabilities of the estimator and verifier operations are calculated. With these results, the detection, the false alarm, and the missing probabilities of the proposed scheme are derived. In addition, using a signal flow graph, the average acquisition time is calculated. The proposed scheme can be used as a preestimator and easily implemented by changing the internal signal path of a generally used digital matched filter (DMF correlator or any other correlator that has a lot of sampling data memories for sampled PN sequence. The numerical results show rapid acquisition performance in a relatively good CNR.

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the evaluation of parameterization schemes in the WRF model for estimation of mixing height. Numerical experiments were performed using various combinations of parameterization schemes and the results were compared with the mixing height estimated using the radiosonde observations taken by the India Meteorological Department (IMD at Mangalore site for selected days of the warm and cold season in the years 2004–2007. The results indicate that there is a large variation in the mixing heights estimated by the model using various combinations of parameterization schemes. It was seen that the physics option consisting of Mellor Yamada Janjic (Eta as the PBL scheme, Monin Obukhov Janjic (Eta as the surface layer scheme, and Noah land surface model performs reasonably well in reproducing the observed mixing height at this site for both the seasons as compared to the other combinations tested. This study also showed that the choice of the land surface model can have a significant impact on the simulation of mixing height by a prognostic model.

  15. A Simplified Scheme of Estimation and Cancellation of Companding Noise for Companded Multicarrier Transmission Systems

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Nonlinear companding transform is an efficient method to reduce the high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR of multicarrier transmission systems. However, the introduced companding noise greatly degrades the bit-error-rate (BER performance of the companded multicarrier systems. In this paper, a simplified but effective scheme of estimation and cancellation of companding noise for the companded multicarrier transmission system is proposed. By expressing the companded signals as the summation of original signals added with a companding noise component, and subtracting this estimated companding noise from the received signals, the BER performance of the overall system can be significantly improved. Simulation results well confirm the great advantages of the proposed scheme over other conventional decompanding or no decompanding schemes under various situations.

    Simoens Frederik

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper concerns channel tracking in a multiantenna context for correlated flat-fading channels obeying a Gauss-Markov model. It is known that data-aided tracking of fast-fading channels requires a lot of pilot symbols in order to achieve sufficient accuracy, and hence decreases the spectral efficiency. To overcome this problem, we design a code-aided estimation scheme which exploits information from both the pilot symbols and the unknown coded data symbols. The algorithm is derived based on a factor graph representation of the system and application of the sum-product algorithm. The sum-product algorithm reveals how soft information from the decoder should be exploited for the purpose of estimation and how the information bits can be detected. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of our approach.

  18. A Low-Complexity Bock Linear Smoothing Channel Estimation for SIMO-OFDM Systems without Cyclic Prefix

    Science.gov (United States)

    Yu, Jung-Lang; Chen, Chia-Hao

    Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems often use a cyclic prefix (CP) to simplify the equalization design at the cost of bandwidth efficiency. To increase the bandwidth efficiency, we study the blind equalization with linear smoothing [1] for single-input multiple-output (SIMO) OFDM systems without CP insertion in this paper. Due to the block Toeplitz structure of channel matrix, the block matrix scheme is applied to the linear smoothing channel estimation, which equivalently increases the number of sample vectors and thus reduces the perturbation of sample autocorrelation matrix. Compared with the linear smoothing and subspace methods, the proposed block linear smoothing requires the lowest computational complexity. Computer simulations show that the block linear smoothing yields a channel estimation error smaller than that from linear smoothing, and close to that of the subspace method. Evaluating by the minimum mean-square error (MMSE) equalizer, the block linear smoothing and subspace methods have nearly the same bit-error-rates (BERs).

    An efficient method is proposed to enhance the parameter-estimation precision for noisy quantum channels based on measurement reversal from partial-collapse measurement. It is shown that the quantum Fisher information can be distinctly improved for amplitude-damping channel, phase-damping channel and depolarizing channel with partial-collapse measurement. This also means that choosing the appropriate measurement strengths can lead to higher precision of estimation on noisy quantum channels.

    Utilizing relaying techniques to improve performance of wireless systems is a promising avenue. However, it is crucial to understand what type of relaying schemes should be used for achieving different performance objectives under realistic fading conditions. In this paper, we present a general framework for modelling and evaluating the performance of relaying schemes based on the decode-and-forward (DF) protocol over independent and not necessarily identically distributed (INID) Nakagami-m fading channels. In particular, we present closed-form expressions for the statistics of the instantaneous output signal-to-noise ratio of four significant relaying schemes with DF; two based on repetitive transmission and the other two based on relay selection (RS). These expressions are then used to obtain closed-form expressions for the outage probability and the average symbol error probability for several modulations of all considered relaying schemes over INID Nakagami-m fading. Importantly, it is shown that when the...

    Broadband channel is often characterized by a sparse multipath channel where dominant multipath taps are widely separated in time, thereby resulting in a large delay spread. Traditionally, accurate channel estimation is done by sampling received signal by analog-to-digital converter (ADC) at Nyquist rate (high-speed ADC sampling) and then estimate all channel taps with high-resolution. However, traditional linear estimation methods have two mainly disadvantages: 1) demand of the high-speed AD...

  2. Multipass Channel Estimation and Joint Multiuser Detection and Equalization for MIMO Long-Code DS/CDMA Systems

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available The problem of joint channel estimation, equalization, and multiuser detection for a multiantenna DS/CDMA system operating over a frequency-selective fading channel and adopting long aperiodic spreading codes is considered in this paper. First of all, we present several channel estimation and multiuser data detection schemes suited for multiantenna long-code DS/CDMA systems. Then, a multipass strategy, wherein the data detection and the channel estimation procedures exchange information in a recursive fashion, is introduced and analyzed for the proposed scenario. Remarkably, this strategy provides, at the price of some attendant computational complexity increase, excellent performance even when very short training sequences are transmitted, and thus couples together the conflicting advantages of both trained and blind systems, that is, good performance and no wasted bandwidth, respectively. Space-time coded systems are also considered, and it is shown that the multipass strategy provides excellent results for such systems also. Likewise, it is also shown that excellent performance is achieved also when each user adopts the same spreading code for all of its transmit antennas. The validity of the proposed procedure is corroborated by both simulation results and analytical findings. In particular, it is shown that adopting the multipass strategy results in a remarkable reduction of the channel estimation mean-square error and of the optimal length of the training sequence.

    Although H.264 video coding standard provides several error resilience tools, the damage caused by error propagation may still be tremendous. This work is aimed at developing a robust and standard-compliant error resilient coding scheme for H.264and uses techniques of mode decision, data hiding, and error concealment to reduce the damage from error propagation. This paper proposes a system with two error resilience techniques that can improve the robustness of H.264 in noisy channels. The first technique is Nearest Neighbor motion compensated Error Concealment (NNEC) that chooses the nearest neighbors in the reference frames for error concealment. The second technique is Distortion Estimated Mode Decision (DEMD) that selects an optimal mode based on stochastically distorted frames. Observed simulation results showed that the rate-distortion performances of the proposed algorithms are better than those of the compared algorithms.

    2004-01-01

    Signal-to-Interference Ratio(SIR) is a very important metric of communication link quality. For wireless cellular systems, several control mechanisms, such as power control mechanisms, rate control mechanisms, and allocation of radio resource, are based on SIR estimation.In previous researches, most of researchers concentrated on WCDMA systems, in which pilot symbol is time-multiplexed with data symbol; the method developed in this case is not feasible for cdma2000 systems where pilot symbol is code-multiplexed with data symbol. This paper first develops the SIR estimators based on the reverse pilot channel and then derives the approximate analytic expression for its Mean Squared Error (MSE) function, the accuracy of which is validated through simulation. It is shown that the MSE of the new SIR estimator is significantly smaller than that of other widely used SIR estimators, especially in low SIR case. Finally, the estimate quality of the proposed method is further improved by long-termly averaging the sample interference.

    Full Text Available This paper reports investigations on the effect of antenna mutual coupling on performance of training-based Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO channel estimation. The influence of mutual coupling is assessed for two training-based channel estimation methods, Scaled Least Square (SLS and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE. It is shown that the accuracy of MIMO channel estimation is governed by the sum of eigenvalues of channel correlation matrix which in turn is influenced by the mutual coupling in transmitting and receiving array antennas. A water-filling-based procedure is proposed to optimize the training signal transmission to minimize the MIMO channel estimation errors.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Massive multiple-input multiple-output (massive-MIMO is foreseen as a potential technology for future 5G cellular communication networks due to its substantial benefits in terms of increased spectral and energy efficiency. These advantages of massive-MIMO are a consequence of equipping the base station (BS with quite a large number of antenna elements, thus resulting in an aggressive spatial multiplexing. In order to effectively reap the benefits of massive-MIMO, an adequate estimate of the channel impulse response (CIR between each transmit–receive link is of utmost importance. It has been established in the literature that certain specific multipath propagation environments lead to a sparse structured CIR in spatial and/or delay domains. In this paper, implicit training and compressed sensing based CIR estimation techniques are proposed for the case of massive-MIMO sparse uplink channels. In the proposed superimposed training (SiT based techniques, a periodic and low power training sequence is superimposed (arithmetically added over the information sequence, thus avoiding any dedicated time/frequency slots for the training sequence. For the estimation of such massive-MIMO sparse uplink channels, two greedy pursuits based compressed sensing approaches are proposed, viz: SiT based stage-wise orthogonal matching pursuit (SiT-StOMP and gradient pursuit (SiT-GP. In order to demonstrate the validity of proposed techniques, a performance comparison in terms of normalized mean square error (NCMSE and bit error rate (BER is performed with a notable SiT based least squares (SiT-LS channel estimation technique. The effect of channels’ sparsity, training-to-information power ratio (TIR and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR on BER and NCMSE performance of proposed schemes is thoroughly studied. For a simulation scenario of: 4 × 64 massive-MIMO with a channel sparsity level of 80 % and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR of 10 dB , a performance gain of 18 dB and 13 d

    We present experimental data on message transmission in a free-space optical (FSO) link at an eye-safe wavelength, using a testbed consisting of one sender and two receiver terminals, where the latter two are a legitimate receiver and an eavesdropper. The testbed allows us to emulate a typical scenario of physical-layer (PHY) security such as satellite-to-ground laser communications. We estimate information-theoretic metrics including secrecy rate, secrecy outage probability, and expected code lengths for given secrecy criteria based on observed channel statistics. We then discuss operation principles of secure message transmission under realistic fading conditions, and provide a guideline on a multi-layer security architecture by combining PHY security and upper-layer (algorithmic) security.

    Full Text Available Open-circuit voltage (OCV is one of the most important parameters in determining state of charge (SoC of power battery. The direct measurement of it is costly and time consuming. This paper describes an adaptive scheme that can be used to derive OCV of the power battery. The scheme only uses the measurable input (terminal current and the measurable output (terminal voltage signals of the battery system and is simple enough to enable online implement. Firstly an equivalent circuit model is employed to describe the polarization characteristic and the dynamic behavior of the lithium-ion battery; the state-space representation of the electrical performance for the battery is obtained based on the equivalent circuit model. Then the implementation procedure of the adaptive scheme is given; also the asymptotic convergence of the observer error and the boundedness of all the parameter estimates are proven. Finally, experiments are carried out, and the effectiveness of the adaptive estimation scheme is validated by the experimental results.

    The traditional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) bandwidth estimation scheme uses fast Fourier transform (FFT) to estimate the spectrum, while the spectrum is not very precise and the quantity of calculation is larger. Thus, a bandwidth estimation scheme based the Welch method was proposed. First the scheme estimated the power spectrum of OFDM with the Welch method. Second the spectrum was decomposed and reconstructed by wavelet transform in order to become smooth. Then the moving covariance values of the smooth spectrum were calculated and the positions of the two maximum of covariance values were extracted in order to find the beginning and the end of the spectrum. Finally the statistical average of computed bandwidth was calculated used as the final bandwidth. Simulation results show that correct estimated rate of the improved scheme is 99.1 % when signal nojse ratio is 0 dB. The scheme has higher precision and smaller computation compared with the traditional scheme.%针对正交频分复用信号通过快速傅里叶变换变换得到的频谱不够精确且计算量较大的问题,提出一种基于Welch法的带宽盲估计方法.首先用Welch法求得功率谱,再进行小波分解、重构,得到平滑的功率谱;然后提取出最大移动协方差的2个值所在的位置进而估计带宽;最后多次循环求统计平均,得到信号的精确带宽.实验仿真结果表明:在多径且低信噪比为0 dB的条件下,该方法的正确估计率达99.1%,比传统方法的带宽估计精度更高,计算复杂度更低.

    2011-01-01

    Estimation of the Embedding capacity is an important problem specifically in reversible multi-pass watermarking and is required for analysis before any image can be watermarked. In this paper, we propose an efficient method for estimating the embedding capacity of a given cover image under multi-pass embedding, without actually embedding the watermark. We demonstrate this for a class of reversible watermarking schemes which operate on a disjoint group of pixels, specifically for pixel pairs. The proposed algorithm iteratively updates the co-occurrence matrix at every stage, to estimate the multi-pass embedding capacity, and is much more efficient vis-a-vis actual watermarking. We also suggest an extremely efficient, pre-computable tree based implementation which is conceptually similar to the co-occurrence based method, but provides the estimates in a single iteration, requiring a complexity akin to that of single pass capacity estimation. We also provide bounds on the embedding capacity. We finally show how ...

    The detection of extra-solar terrestrial planets requires the use of space-based high-contrast imaging. Stellar photon noise as well as light thrown about by system aberrations necessitate the use of a high quality light suppression system and a method for wavefront correction. We present here a wavefront estimation scheme to be used with estimate-based correction for the shaped pupil coronagraph. In order to properly estimate the field in a reimaged pupil plane, we employ the use of the iterative Gerchberg-Saxton estimation algorithm between it and a second-focus image plane. We utilize the correction algorithm to overcome an ambiguity inherent in Gerchberg-Saxton estimation.

    2013-03-01

    A missing texture reconstruction method based on an error reduction (ER) algorithm, including a novel estimation scheme of Fourier transform magnitudes is presented in this brief. In our method, Fourier transform magnitude is estimated for a target patch including missing areas, and the missing intensities are estimated by retrieving its phase based on the ER algorithm. Specifically, by monitoring errors converged in the ER algorithm, known patches whose Fourier transform magnitudes are similar to that of the target patch are selected from the target image. In the second approach, the Fourier transform magnitude of the target patch is estimated from those of the selected known patches and their corresponding errors. Consequently, by using the ER algorithm, we can estimate both the Fourier transform magnitudes and phases to reconstruct the missing areas.

    Full Text Available In this paper, a conventional indirect stator flux oriented controlled (ISFOC induction motor drive is presented. In order to eliminate the speed sensor, an adaptation algorithm for tuning the rotor speed is proposed. Based on the model reference adaptive system (MRAS scheme, the rotor speed is tuned to obtain an exact ISFOC induction motor drive. The reference and adjustable models, developed in stationary stator reference frame, are used in the MRAS scheme to estimate induction rotor peed from measured terminal voltages and currents. The IP gains speed controller and PI gains current controller are calculated and tuned at each sampling time according to the new estimated rotor speed. The proposed algorithm has been tested by numerical simulation, showing the capability of driving active load; and stability is preserved. Experimental results obtained with a general-purpose 1-kW induction machine are presented showing the effectiveness of the proposed approach in terms of dynamic performance.

    In this paper, we study relay selection in decode-and-forward wireless energy harvesting cooperative networks. In contrast to conventional cooperative networks, the relays harvest energy from the source's radio-frequency radiation and then use that energy to forward the source information. Considering power splitting receiver architecture used at relays to harvest energy, we are concerned with the performance of two popular relay selection schemes, namely, partial relay selection (PRS) scheme and optimal relay selection (ORS) scheme. In particular, we analyze the system performance in terms of outage probability (OP) over independent and non-identical (i.n.i.d.) Rayleigh fading channels. We derive the closed-form approximations for the system outage probabilities of both schemes and validate the analysis by the Monte-Carlo simulation. The numerical results provide comprehensive performance comparison between the PRS and ORS schemes and reveal the effect of wireless energy harvesting on the outage performances of both schemes. Additionally, we also show the advantages and drawbacks of the wireless energy harvesting cooperative networks and compare to the conventional cooperative networks.

  18. UD-WCMA: An Energy Estimation and Forecast Scheme for Solar Powered Wireless Sensor Networks

    KAUST Repository

    Dehwah, Ahmad H.

    2017-04-11

    Energy estimation and forecast represents an important role for energy management in solar-powered wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In general, the energy in such networks is managed over a finite time horizon in the future based on input solar power forecasts to enable continuous operation of the WSNs and achieve the sensing objectives while ensuring that no node runs out of energy. In this article, we propose a dynamic version of the weather conditioned moving average technique (UD-WCMA) to estimate and predict the variations of the solar power in a wireless sensor network. The presented approach combines the information from the real-time measurement data and a set of stored profiles representing the energy patterns in the WSNs location to update the prediction model. The UD-WCMA scheme is based on adaptive weighting parameters depending on the weather changes which makes it flexible compared to the existing estimation schemes without any precalibration. A performance analysis has been performed considering real irradiance profiles to assess the UD-WCMA prediction accuracy. Comparative numerical tests to standard forecasting schemes (EWMA, WCMA, and Pro-Energy) shows the outperformance of the new algorithm. The experimental validation has proven the interesting features of the UD-WCMA in real time low power sensor nodes.

    CERN Document Server

    Amariucai, George T

    2010-01-01

    In this paper we study the problem of half-duplex active eavesdropping in fast fading channels. The active eavesdropper is a more powerful adversary than the classical eavesdropper. It can choose between two functional modes: eavesdropping the transmission between the legitimate parties (Ex mode), and jamming it (Jx mode) -- the active eavesdropper cannot function in full duplex mode. We consider a conservative scenario, when the active eavesdropper can choose its strategy based on the legitimate transmitter-receiver pair's strategy -- and thus the transmitter and legitimate receiver have to plan for the worst. We show that conventional physical-layer secrecy approaches perform poorly (if at all), and we introduce a novel encoding scheme, based on very limited and unsecured feedback -- the Block-Markov Wyner (BMW) encoding scheme -- which outperforms any schemes currently available.

The high costs of sampling schemes optimized with additional sampling points for each physical and chemical soil property, prevent their use in precision agriculture. The purpose of this study was to obtain an optimal sampling scheme for physical and chemical property sets and investigate its effect on the quality of soil sampling. Soil was sampled on a 42-ha area, with 206 geo-referenced points arranged in a regular grid spaced 50 m from each other, in a depth range of 0.00-0.20 m. In order to obtain an optimal sampling scheme for every physical and chemical property, a sample grid, a medium-scale variogram and the extended Spatial Simulated Annealing (SSA method were used to minimize kriging variance. The optimization procedure was validated by constructing maps of relative improvement comparing the sample configuration before and after the process. A greater concentration of recommended points in specific areas (NW-SE direction was observed, which also reflects a greater estimate variance at these locations. The addition of optimal samples, for specific regions, increased the accuracy up to 2 % for chemical and 1 % for physical properties. The use of a sample grid and medium-scale variogram, as previous information for the conception of additional sampling schemes, was very promising to determine the locations of these additional points for all physical and chemical soil properties, enhancing the accuracy of kriging estimates of the physical-chemical properties.

  1. Interleaving Gains for Receive Diversity Schemes of Distributed Turbo Codes in Wireless Half–Duplex Relay Channels

    Full Text Available This paper proposes the interleaving gain in two different distributed turbo-coding schemes: Distributed Turbo Codes (DTC and Distributed Multiple Turbo Codes (DMTC for half-duplex relay system as an extension of our previous work on turbo coding interleaver design for direct communication channel. For these schemes with half-duplex constraint, the source node transmits its information with the parity bit sequence(s to both the relay and the destination nodes during the first phase. The relay received the data from the source and process it by using decode and forward protocol. For the second transmission period, the decoded systematic data at relay is interleaved and re-encoded by a Recursive Systematic Convolutional (RSC encoder and forwarded to the destination. At destination node, the signals received from the source and relay are processed by using turbo log-MAP iterative decoding for retrieving the original information bits. We demonstrate via simulations that the interleaving gain has a large effect with DTC scheme when we use only one RSC encoder at both the source and relay with best performance when using Modified Matched S-Random (MMSR interleaver. Furthermore, by designing a Chaotic Pseudo Random Interleaver (CPRI as an outer interleaver at the source node instead of classical interleavers, our scheme can add more secure channel conditions.

  2. BLIND CHANNEL ESTIMATION OF SPACE-TIME FREQUENCY-SHIFT KEYING

    2006-01-01

    The decoupled coherent Maximum Likelihood (ML) detection algorithm presented in this lettercan sharply reduce the complexity of the receiver as well as provide better error performance under the pre-condition that channel should be estimated first. Considering the bandwidth inefficiency of Frequency ShiftKeying (FSK), the acquisition of channel state information through training sequences will further decreasethe transmission efficiency. This letter presents a blind channel estimation algorithm based on noise subspacetheory which can acquire channel information without any training symbols. The simulation shows that thealgorithm brings about fewer channel estimation errors while the frequency efficiency can be increased.

    In this paper, we tackle for the first time the problem of maximum likelihood (ML) estimation of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) parameter over time-varying single-input multiple-output (SIMO) channels. Both the data-aided (DA) and the non-data-aided (NDA) schemes are investigated. Unlike classical techniques where the channel is assumed to be slowly time-varying and, therefore, considered as constant over the entire observation period, we address the more challenging problem of instantaneous (i.e., short-term or local) SNR estimation over fast time-varying channels. The channel variations are tracked locally using a polynomial-in-time expansion. First, we derive in closed-form expressions the DA ML estimator and its bias. The latter is subsequently subtracted in order to obtain a new unbiased DA estimator whose variance and the corresponding Cram\\'er-Rao lower bound (CRLB) are also derived in closed form. Due to the extreme nonlinearity of the log-likelihood function (LLF) in the NDA case, we resort to the expectation-maximization (EM) technique to iteratively obtain the exact NDA ML SNR estimates within very few iterations. Most remarkably, the new EM-based NDA estimator is applicable to any linearly-modulated signal and provides sufficiently accurate soft estimates (i.e., soft detection) for each of the unknown transmitted symbols. Therefore, hard detection can be easily embedded in the iteration loop in order to improve its performance at low to moderate SNR levels. We show by extensive computer simulations that the new estimators are able to accurately estimate the instantaneous per-antenna SNRs as they coincide with the DA CRLB over a wide range of practical SNRs.

    Time is a valuable resource and it is expected that a longer time period should lead to better precision in Hamiltonian parameter estimation. However, recent studies in quantum metrology have shown that in certain cases more time may even lead to worse estimations, which puts this intuition into question. In this Letter we show that by including feedback controls this intuition can be restored. By deriving asymptotically optimal feedback controls we quantify the maximal improvement feedback controls can provide in Hamiltonian parameter estimation and show a universal time scaling for the precision limit under the optimal feedback scheme. Our study reveals an intriguing connection between noncommutativity in the dynamics and the gain of feedback controls in Hamiltonian parameter estimation.

    Full Text Available We have developed the Bayesian estimation procedure for flexible Weibull distribution under Type-II censoring scheme assuming Jeffrey's scale invariant (noninformative and Gamma (informative priors for the model parameters. The interval estimation for the model parameters has been performed through normal approximation, bootstrap, and highest posterior density (HPD procedures. Further, we have also derived the predictive posteriors and the corresponding predictive survival functions for the future observations based on Type-II censored data from the flexible Weibull distribution. Since the predictive posteriors are not in the closed form, we proposed to use the Monte Carlo Markov chain (MCMC methods to approximate the posteriors of interest. The performance of the Bayes estimators has also been compared with the classical estimators of the model parameters through the Monte Carlo simulation study. A real data set representing the time between failures of secondary reactor pumps has been analysed for illustration purpose.

  7. Performance analysis of best relay selection scheme for amplify-and-forward cooperative networks in identical Nakagami-m channels

    2010-06-01

    In cooperative communication networks, the use of multiple relays between the source and the destination was proposed to increase the diversity gain. Since the source and all the relays must transmit on orthogonal channels, multiple relay cooperation is considered inefficient in terms of channel resources and bandwidth utilization. To overcome this problem, the concept of best relay selection was recently proposed. In this paper, we analyze the performance of the best relay selection scheme for a cooperative network with multiple relays operating in amplify-and-forward (AF) mode over identical Nakagami-m channels using exact source-relay-destination signal to noise ratio (SNR) expression. We derive accurate closed form expressions for various system parameters including probability density function (pdf) of end-to-end SNR, average output SNR, average probability of bit error and average channel capacity. T he analytical results are verified through extensive simulations. It is shown that the best relay selection scheme performs better than the regular all relay cooperation.

    The combination of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) techniques with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), MIMO-OFDM, is a promising way of achieving high spectral efficiency in wireless communication systems. However, the performance of MIMO-ODFM systems is highly degraded by radio frequency (RF) impairments such as phase noise. Similar to the single-input single-output (SISO) case, phase noise in MIMO-OFDM systems results in a common phase error (CPE) and inter carrier interference (ICI). In this paper the problem of joint channel and phase noise estimation in a system with multiple transmit and receive antennas where each antenna is equipped with its own independent oscillator is tackled. The technique employed makes use of a novel placement of pilot carriers in the preamble and data portion of the MIMO-OFDM frame. Numerical results using a 16 and 64 quadrature amplitude modulation QAM schemes are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme for MIMO-OFDM systems.

  9. A Power Efficient Sensing/Communication Scheme: Joint Source-Channel-Network Coding by Using Compressive Sensing

    CERN Document Server

    Feizi, Soheil

    2011-01-01

    We propose a joint source-channel-network coding scheme, based on compressive sensing principles, for wireless networks with AWGN channels (that may include multiple access and broadcast), with sources exhibiting temporal and spatial dependencies. Our goal is to provide a reconstruction of sources within an allowed distortion level at each receiver. We perform joint source-channel coding at each source by randomly projecting source values to a lower dimensional space. We consider sources that satisfy the restricted eigenvalue (RE) condition as well as more general sources for which the randomness of the network allows a mapping to lower dimensional spaces. Our approach relies on using analog random linear network coding. The receiver uses compressive sensing decoders to reconstruct sources. Our key insight is the fact that, compressive sensing and analog network coding both preserve the source characteristics required for compressive sensing decoding.

    2014-01-01

    In orthogonal frequency division modulation (OFDM) communication systems, channel state information (CSI) is required at receiver due to the fact that frequency-selective fading channel leads to disgusting intersymbol interference (ISI) over data transmission. Broadband channel model is often described by very few dominant channel taps and they can be probed by compressive sensing based sparse channel estimation (SCE) methods, for example, orthogonal matching pursuit algorithm, which can take the advantage of sparse structure effectively in the channel as for prior information. However, these developed methods are vulnerable to both noise interference and column coherence of training signal matrix. In other words, the primary objective of these conventional methods is to catch the dominant channel taps without a report of posterior channel uncertainty. To improve the estimation performance, we proposed a compressive sensing based Bayesian sparse channel estimation (BSCE) method which cannot only exploit the channel sparsity but also mitigate the unexpected channel uncertainty without scarifying any computational complexity. The proposed method can reveal potential ambiguity among multiple channel estimators that are ambiguous due to observation noise or correlation interference among columns in the training matrix. Computer simulations show that proposed method can improve the estimation performance when comparing with conventional SCE methods.

    The impact of imperfect channel estimation on the forward-link performance in CDMA distributed antenna systems in multi-path fading environment is investigated.A detailed analytical model based on a hybrid signal combining method is presented and exact outage probability expression is derived.The investigation shows that the effect of imperfect channel estimates varies with system load.Furthermore,if simulcasting is employed,macro-diversity can decrease the sensitivity of forward-link to channel estimation errors and increase the forward-link outage performance,which is contrary to the conclusion drawn based on the ideal channel estimation assumption.

  12. An Efficient Simulation Scheme of the Outage Probability with Co-Channel Interference

    KAUST Repository

    Rached, Nadhir B.

    2016-03-28

    © 2015 IEEE. The outage probability (OP) of the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) is an important metric used to evaluate the performance of wireless communication systems operating over fading channels. One major difficulty toward assessing the OP is that, in most of the realistic scenarios, closed-form expressions cannot be derived. This is for instance the case of Log-normal fading environments, in which evaluating the OP of the SINR amounts to computing the probability that a sum of correlated Log-normal variates exceeds a given threshold. Since such a probability is not known to admit a closed-form expression, it has thus far been evaluated by several approximation techniques, the accuracies of which are unfortunately not guaranteed in the interesting region of small outage probabilities. For these regions, simulation techniques based on variance reduction algorithms can represent a good alternative, being well-recognized to be quick and highly accurate for estimating rare event probabilities. This constitutes the major motivation behind our work. More specifically, we propose an efficient importance sampling approach which is based on a covariance matrix scaling technique and illustrate its computational gain over naive Monte Carlo simulations through some selected simulation results.

  13. An Adaptive Channel Estimation Algorithm Using Time-Frequency Polynomial Model for OFDM with Fading Multipath Channels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM is an effective technique for the future 3G communications because of its great immunity to impulse noise and intersymbol interference. The channel estimation is a crucial aspect in the design of OFDM systems. In this work, we propose a channel estimation algorithm based on a time-frequency polynomial model of the fading multipath channels. The algorithm exploits the correlation of the channel responses in both time and frequency domains and hence reduce more noise than the methods using only time or frequency polynomial model. The estimator is also more robust compared to the existing methods based on Fourier transform. The simulation shows that it has more than improvement in terms of mean-squared estimation error under some practical channel conditions. The algorithm needs little prior knowledge about the delay and fading properties of the channel. The algorithm can be implemented recursively and can adjust itself to follow the variation of the channel statistics.

    2014-08-07

    The transmit array of multi-overlapped-transmit-subarray configured bistatic multiple-input multiple-output (MOTS MIMO) radar is partitioned into a number of overlapped subarrays, which is different from the traditional bistatic MIMO radar. In this paper, a new unitary ESPRIT scheme for joint estimation of the direction of departure (DOD) and the direction of arrival (DOA) for MOTS MIMO radar is proposed. In our method, each overlapped-transmit-subarray (OTS) with the identical effective aperture is regarded as a transmit element and the characteristics that the phase delays between the two OTSs is utilized. First, the measurements corresponding to all the OTSs are partitioned into two groups which have a rotational invariance relationship with each other. Then, the properties of centro-Hermitian matrices and real-valued rotational invariance factors are exploited to double the measurement samples and reduce computational complexity. Finally, the close-formed solution of automatically paired DOAs and DODs of targets is derived in a new manner. The proposed scheme provides increased estimation accuracy with the combination of inherent advantages of MOTS MIMO radar with unitary ESPRIT. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness and advantage of the proposed scheme.

    2017-02-01

    This paper is concerned with the channel estimation problem in Millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless systems with large antenna arrays. By exploiting the inherent sparse nature of the mmWave channel, we first propose a fast channel estimation (FCE) algorithm based on a novel overlapped beam pattern design, which can increase the amount of information carried by each channel measurement and thus reduce the required channel estimation time compared to the existing non-overlapped designs. We develop a maximum likelihood (ML) estimator to optimally extract the path information from the channel measurements. Then, we propose a novel rate-adaptive channel estimation (RACE) algorithm, which can dynamically adjust the number of channel measurements based on the expected probability of estimation error (PEE). The performance of both proposed algorithms is analyzed. For the FCE algorithm, an approximate closed-form expression for the PEE is derived. For the RACE algorithm, a lower bound for the minimum signal energy-to-noise ratio required for a given number of channel measurements is developed based on the Shannon-Hartley theorem. Simulation results show that the FCE algorithm significantly reduces the number of channel estimation measurements compared to the existing algorithms using non-overlapped beam patterns. By adopting the RACE algorithm, we can achieve up to a 6dB gain in signal energy-to-noise ratio for the same PEE compared to the existing algorithms.

  18. A dual-pass data assimilation scheme for estimating turbulent fluxes with FY3A data

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available A dual-pass data assimilation scheme is developed to improve predictions of turbulent fluxes with FY3A land surface temperature (LST data. This scheme is constructed based on the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF and common land model (CoLM. Pass 1 of the dual-pass data assimilation scheme optimizes model vegetation parameters at a long temporal scale and pass 2 optimizes soil moisture at a short temporal scale. Four sites are selected for the data assimilation experiments, namely Arou, BJ, Guantao, and Miyun in the People's Republic of China (PRC that include grass, alpine meadow, crop, and orchard land cover types. The results are compared with data generated by a multi-scale turbulent flux observation system that includes an eddy covariance (EC and a large aperture scintillometer (LAS system. Results indicate that the CoLM can simulate the diurnal variations of turbulent flux, but usually underestimates the latent heat flux and evaporation fraction (EF and overestimates sensible heat flux. With the assimilation of FY3A LST data, the dual-pass data assimilation scheme can improve the predictions of turbulent flux. The average root mean square error (RMSE values drop from 81.2 to 39.6 W m−2 and from 101.7 to 58.9 W m−2 (the RMSE values drop 51.2% and 42.1% for sensible and latent heat fluxes, respectively. To compare the results with LAS measurements, the source areas are calculated using a footprint model and overlaid with FY3A pixels since the LAS cover more than one FY3A pixel. The comparisons show that the assimilation results are closer to LAS measurements. With the dual-pass data assimilation scheme, the estimated soil moistures are generally closer to observations. Furthermore, the vegetation parameters are retrieved and incorporated into CoLM which enhanced the model's predictive abilities.

    Full Text Available We propose a block-by-block iterative receiver for underwater MIMO-OFDM that couples channel estimation with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO detection and low-density parity-check (LDPC channel decoding. In particular, the channel estimator is based on a compressive sensing technique to exploit the channel sparsity, the MIMO detector consists of a hybrid use of successive interference cancellation and soft minimum mean-square error (MMSE equalization, and channel coding uses nonbinary LDPC codes. Various feedback strategies from the channel decoder to the channel estimator are studied, including full feedback of hard or soft symbol decisions, as well as their threshold-controlled versions. We study the receiver performance using numerical simulation and experimental data collected from the RACE08 and SPACE08 experiments. We find that iterative receiver processing including sparse channel estimation leads to impressive performance gains. These gains are more pronounced when the number of available pilots to estimate the channel is decreased, for example, when a fixed number of pilots is split between an increasing number of parallel data streams in MIMO transmission. For the various feedback strategies for iterative channel estimation, we observe that soft decision feedback slightly outperforms hard decision feedback.

    2014-01-01

    The q-composite key predistribution scheme [1] is used prevalently for secure communications in large-scale wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Prior work [2]-[4] explores topological properties of WSNs employing the q-composite scheme for q = 1 with unreliable communication links modeled as independent on/off channels. In this paper, we investigate topological properties related to the node degree in WSNs operating under the q-composite scheme and the on/off channel model. Our results apply to general q and are stronger than those reported for the node degree in prior work even for the case of q being 1. Specifically, we show that the number of nodes with certain degree asymptotically converges in distribution to a Poisson random variable, present the asymptotic probability distribution for the minimum degree of the network, and establish the asymptotically exact probability for the property that the minimum degree is at least an arbitrary value. Numerical experiments confirm the validity of our analytical find...

  3. Scheme for proton-driven plasma-wakefield acceleration of positively charged particles in a hollow plasma channel

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Longqing Yi (易龙卿

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available A new scheme for accelerating positively charged particles in a plasma-wakefield accelerator is proposed. If the proton drive beam propagates in a hollow plasma channel, and the beam radius is of order of the channel width, the space charge force of the driver causes charge separation at the channel wall, which helps to focus the positively charged witness bunch propagating along the beam axis. In the channel, the acceleration buckets for positively charged particles are much larger than in the blowout regime of the uniform plasma, and stable acceleration over long distances is possible. In addition, phasing of the witness with respect to the wave can be tuned by changing the radius of the channel to ensure the acceleration is optimal. Two-dimensional simulations suggest that, for proton drivers likely available in future, positively charged particles can be stably accelerated over 1 km with the average acceleration gradient of 1.3  GeV/m.

    Channel estimation techniques are crucial for reliable communications. This paper is concerned with channel estimation in a filter bank multicarrier spread spectrum (FBMCSS) system. We explore two channel estimator options: (i) a method that makes use of a periodic preamble and mimics the channel estimation techniques that are widely used in OFDM-based systems; and (ii) a method that stays within the traditional realm of filter bank signal processing. For the case where the channel noise is white, both methods are analyzed in detail and their performance is compared against their respective Cramer-Rao Lower Bounds (CRLB). Advantages and disadvantages of the two methods under different channel conditions are given to provide insight to the reader as to when one will outperform the other.

    Based on the analysis of decision-directed (DD) channel estimation by using training symbols,a novel DD channel estimation method is proposed for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system.The proposed algorithm takes the impact of decision error into account,and calculates the impact to next symbol duration channel state information.Analysis shows that the error propagation can be effectively restrained and the channel variation is tracked well.Simulation results demonstrate that both the signal error rate (SER) and the normalized mean square error (NMSE) performance of the proposed method are better than the traditional DD (DD+ IS) and the maximum likelihood estimate (DD+ MLE) method.

    Bit error rates (BERs) for amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying systems with two different pilot-symbol-aided channel estimation methods, disintegrated channel estimation (DCE) and cascaded channel estimation (CCE), are derived in Rayleigh fading channels. Based on these BERs, the pilot powers at the source and at the relay are optimized when their total transmitting powers are fixed. Numerical results show that the optimized system has a better performance than other conventional nonoptimized allocation systems. They also show that the optimal pilot power in variable gain is nearly the same as that in fixed gain for similar system settings. andcopy; 2014 IEEE.

    This paper is concerned with temporal data requirements for the assessment of trends and for estimating spatial correlations of atmospheric species. The authors examine statistically three basic issues: (1) the effect of autocorrelations in monthly observations and the effect of the length of data record on the precision of trend estimates, (2) the effect of autocorrelations in the daily data on the sampling frequency requirements with respect to the representativeness of monthly averages for trend estimation, and (3) the effect of temporal sampling schemes on estimating spatial correlations of atmospheric species in neighboring stations. The principal findings are (1) the precision of trend estimates depends critically on the magnitude of auto-correlations in the monthly observations, (2) this precision is insensitive to the temporal sampling rates of daily measurements under systematic sampling, and (3) the estimate of spatial correlation between two neighboring stations is insensitive to temporal sampling rate under systematic sampling, but is sensitive to the time lag between measurements taken at the two stations. These results are based on methodological considerations as well as on empirical analysis of total and profile ozone and rawinsonde temperature data from selected ground stations.

An error consistency analysis scheme (ECAS), utilizing fast radiative transfer model (RTM) forward and inverse calculations, has been developed to estimate the error budget in terms of mean difference and standard deviation of error in both spectral radiance and retrieval domains. The retrieval error is assessed through ECAS without relying on other independent measurements such as radiosonde data. ECAS establishes a link between the accuracies of radiances and retrieved geophysical parameters. ECAS can be applied to measurements from any ultraspectral instrument and any retrieval scheme with its associated RTM. In this manuscript, ECAS is described and demonstrated with measurements from the MetOp-A satellite Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI). This scheme can be used together with other validation methodologies to give a more definitive characterization of the error and/or uncertainty of geophysical parameters retrieved from ultraspectral radiances observed from current and future satellite remote sensors such as IASI, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS), and the Cross-track Infrared Sounder (CrIS).

    Channel estimation for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system has attracted widespread attention. In this paper, a novel efficient two-dimensional (2-D) channel estimation algorithm based on fast Fourier transform (FFT) is proposed for a time-variant, frequency-selective wideband wireless channel. Both theoretical analysis and simulation results are addressed in the paper. The simulation results prove that the proposed algorithm has simpler implementation, better performance and wider application than other traditional decision-directed algorithms.

    Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) splits a high-speed data stream into a number of lower-speed data streams that are transmitted simultaneously over a number of subcarriers. The capability of resistance of intersymbol interference and bandwidth efficiency are improved, and multipath fading is effectively combated. In order to improve communication efficiency and communication quality, it is necessary to make a dynamic estimation of the current characteristics of the channel. In OFDM system, the technology of channel estimation based on the pilot frequency of block-type distribution is that pilot signal is inserted at regular intervals of time on the transmitting terminal, and on the receiving terminal extract pilot signal from the received data stream, and according to that the channel characteristics are estimated at the period of time. Three common methods of channel estimation based on pilot frequency: MMSE estimation, LS estimation and SVD estimation are discussed with comparison in OFDM system. Through the simulation of matlab, three channel estimation methods and their characteristics are analyzed and compared. The results show that the performance of MMSE estimation is far better than that of the LS estimation, but MMSE estimation has high computational complexity. The performance and computational complexity of SVD estimation are ranged between that of the MMSE estimation and LS estimation.

    In a passive ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio-frequency identification (RFID) system, tag collision is generally resolved on a medium access control (MAC) layer. However, some of collided tag signals could be recovered on a physical (PHY) layer and, thus, enhance the identification efficiency of the RFID system. For the recovery on the PHY layer, channel estimation is a critical issue. Good channel estimation will help to recover the collided signals. Existing channel estimates work well for two collided tags. When the number of collided tags is beyond two, however, the existing estimates have more estimation errors. In this paper, we propose a novel channel estimate for the UHF RFID system. It adopts an orthogonal matrix based on the information of preambles which is known for a reader and applies a minimum-mean-square-error (MMSE) criterion to estimate channels. From the estimated channel, we could accurately separate the collided signals and recover them. By means of numerical results, we show that the proposed estimate has lower estimation errors and higher separation efficiency than the existing estimates.

    Full Text Available In order to simulate neuronal electrical activities, we must estimate the dynamics of channel conductances from physiological experimental data. However, this approach requires the formulation of differential equations that express the time course of channel conductance. On the other hand, if the dynamics are automatically estimated, neuronal activities can be easily simulated. By using a recurrent neural network (RNN, it is possible to estimate the dynamics of channel conductances without formulating the differential equations. In the present study, we estimated the dynamics of the Na+ and K+ conductances of a squid giant axon using two different fully connected RNNs and were able to reproduce various neuronal activities of the axon. The reproduced activities were an action potential, a threshold, a refractory phenomenon, a rebound action potential, and periodic action potentials with a constant stimulation. RNNs can be trained using channels other than the Na+ and K+ channels. Therefore, using our RNN estimation method, the dynamics of channel conductance can be automatically estimated and the neuronal activities can be simulated using the channel RNNs. An RNN can be a useful tool to estimate the dynamics of the channel conductance of a neuron, and by using the method presented here, it is possible to simulate neuronal activities more easily than by using the previous methods.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2006-01-01

    This paper proposes a closed-form joint space-time channel and Direction Of Arrival (DOA) blind estimation algorithm for space-time coded Multi-Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) systems equipped with a Uniform Linear Array (ULA) at the base station in frequency-selective fading environments. The algorithm uses an ESPRIT-like method to separate multiple co-channel users with different impinging DOAs. As a result, the DOAs for multiple users are obtained. In particular, a set of signal subspaces,every one of which is spanned by the space-time vector channels of an individual user, are also obtained. From these signal subspaces, the space-time channels of multiple users are estimated using the subspace method.Computer simulations illustrate both the validity and the overall performance of the proposed scheme.

    In this paper, the effect of channel estimation errors upon the Zero Forcing (ZF) precoding Multiple Input Multiple Output Broadcast (MIMO BC) systems was studied. Based on the two kinds of Gaussian estimation error models, the performance analysis is conducted under different power allocation strategies. Analysis and simulation show that if the covariance of channel estimation errors is independent of the received Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), imperfect channel knowledge deteriorates the sum capacity and the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance severely. However, under the situation of orthogonal training and the Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) channel estimation, the sum capacity and BER performance are consistent with those of the perfect Channel State Information (CSI)with only a performance degradation.

    2016-02-01

    Most of the existing image modification detection methods which are based on DCT coefficient analysis model the distribution of DCT coefficients as a mixture of a modified and an unchanged component. To separate the two components, two parameters, which are the primary quantization step, Q1, and the portion of the modified region, α, have to be estimated, and more accurate estimations of α and Q1 lead to better detection and localization results. Existing methods estimate α and Q1 in a completely blind manner, without considering the characteristics of the mixture model and the constraints to which α should conform. In this paper, we propose a more effective scheme for estimating α and Q1, based on the observations that, the curves on the surface of the likelihood function corresponding to the mixture model is largely smooth, and α can take values only in a discrete set. We conduct extensive experiments to evaluate the proposed method, and the experimental results confirm the efficacy of our method.

    Trebotich, David; Colella, Phillip; Miller, Gregory

    2004-02-15

    We present a new algorithm to simulate unsteady viscoelastic flows in abrupt contraction channels. In our approach we split the viscoelastic terms of the Oldroyd-B constitutive equation using Duhamel's formula and discretize the resulting PDEs using a semi-implicit finite difference method based on a Lax-Wendroff method for hyperbolic terms. In particular, we leave a small residual elastic term in the viscous limit by design to make the hyperbolic piece well-posed. A projection method is used to impose the incompressibility constraint. We are able to compute the full range of elastic flows in an abrupt contraction channel--from the viscous limit to the elastic limit--in a stable and convergent manner for elastic Mach numbers less than one. We demonstrate the method for unsteady Oldroyd-B and Maxwell fluids in planar contraction channels.

    2016-07-01

    A new higher order 1D numerical scheme for the propagation of flood waves in compound channels with a movable bed is presented. The model equations are solved by means of an ADER Discontinuous Galerkin explicit scheme which can, in principle, reach any order of space-time accuracy. The higher order nature of the scheme allows the numerical coupling between flux and source terms appearing in the governing equations and, importantly, to handle moderately stiff and stiff source terms. Stiff source terms arise in the case of abrupt changes of river geometry such as in the case of hydraulic structures like bridges and weirs. Hydraulic interpretation of these conditions with 1D numerical modelling requires particular attention; for instance, a 1st order scheme might either lead to inaccurate solutions or impossibility to simulate these complex conditions. Validation is carried out with several test cases with the aim to check the scheme capability to deal with abrupt geometric changes and to capture the direction and celerity of propagation of bed and water surface disturbances. Validation is done also in a real case by using stage-discharge field measurements in the Ombrone river (Tuscany). The proposed scheme is further employed for the computation of flow rating curves in cross-sections just upstream of an abrupt narrowing, considering both fixed and movable bed conditions and different ratios of contraction for cross-section width. This problem is of particular relevance as, in common engineering practice, rating curves are derived from stage-measuring gauges installed on bridges with flow conditions that are likely to be influenced by local width narrowing. Results show that a higher order scheme is needed in order to deal with stiff source terms and reproduce realistic flow rating curves, unless a strong refinement of the computational grid is performed. This capability appears to be crucial for the computation of rating curves on coarse grids as it allows the

    We propose two types of novel scheme for reducing the number of output channels of driver-integrated circuit (D-IC) for the current programming compensation pixel structures of active-matrix organic light-emitting diodes (AMOLEDs). One is a 2:1 data demultiplexing technique that can reduce the number of output channels of D-IC by half. The proposed second scheme is a vertically aligned red (R), green (G), and blue (B) subpixel scheme instead of a horizontally aligned R-G-B subpixel one, which is regarded as the conventional pixel alignment scheme. We have also successfully implemented these schemes in a 2.4-in.-sized QCIF + (176 × RGB × 220) AMOLED using p-type excimer laser annealing (ELA) low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) technology and evaluated key performance characteristics.

    2017-07-01

    The study considers the problem of simulation based time variant reliability analysis of nonlinear randomly excited dynamical systems. Attention is focused on importance sampling strategies based on the application of Girsanov's transformation method. Controls which minimize the distance function, as in the first order reliability method (FORM), are shown to minimize a bound on the sampling variance of the estimator for the probability of failure. Two schemes based on the application of calculus of variations for selecting control signals are proposed: the first obtains the control force as the solution of a two-point nonlinear boundary value problem, and, the second explores the application of the Volterra series in characterizing the controls. The relative merits of these schemes, vis-à-vis the method based on ideas from the FORM, are discussed. Illustrative examples, involving archetypal single degree of freedom (dof) nonlinear oscillators, and a multi-degree of freedom nonlinear dynamical system, are presented. The credentials of the proposed procedures are established by comparing the solutions with pertinent results from direct Monte Carlo simulations.

    Estimation of channel fading parameters is an important task in the design of communication links such as maximum ratio combining (MRC). The MRC weights are directly related to the fading channel coefficients. In this paper, we propose a subspace based parameter estimation algorithm for the estimation of the parameters of Nakagami-m fading channels in the presence of additive white Gaussian noise. Comparisons of our proposed approach are made with other techniques available in the literature. The performance of the algorithm with respect to the Cramer-Rao bound (CRB) is investigated. Computer simulation results for different signal to noise ratios (SNR) are presented.

    2005-01-01

    Based on inverse heat conduction theory, a theoretical model using 6-point Crank-Nicolson finite difference scheme was used to calculate the thermal conductivity from temperature distribution, which can be measured experimentally. The method is a direct approach of second-order and the key advantage of the present method is that it is not required a priori knowledge of the functional form of the unknown thermal conductivity in the calculation and the thermal parameters are estimated only according to the known temperature distribution. Two cases were numerically calculated and the influence of experimental deviation on the precision of this method was discussed. The comparison of numerical and analytical results showed good agreement.

    2014-01-01

    We address the problem of estimating time-varying fading channels in filter bank multicarrier (FBMC/OQAM) wireless systems based on pilot symbols. The standard solution to this problem is the least square (LS) estimator or the minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimator with possible adaptive implementation using recursive least square (RLS) algorithm or least mean square (LMS) algorithm. However, these adaptive filters cannot well-exploit fading channel statistics. To take advantage of fading channel statistics, the time evolution of the fading channel is modeled by an autoregressive process and tracked by Kalman filter. Nevertheless, this requires the autoregressive parameters which are usually unknown. Thus, we propose to jointly estimate the FBMC/OQAM fading channels and their autoregressive parameters based on dual optimal Kalman filters. Once the fading channel coefficients at pilot symbol positions are estimated by the proposed method, the fading channel coefficients at data symbol positions are then estimated by using some interpolation methods such as linear, spline, or low-pass interpolation. The comparative simulation study we carried out with existing techniques confirms the effectiveness of the proposed method.

    2012-07-01

    Recent occurrences of cracks and fissures on the cladding tubes of PWR control rod (CR) fingers employed in the Swiss reactors prompted the need to develop more reliable analytical methods for CR tip fluence estimations. To partly address this need, a deterministic methodology based on SIMULATE-3/CASMO-4 was in recent years developed at PSI. Although this methodology has already been applied for independent support to licensing issues related to CR lifetime, two main questions are currently being the center of attention for further enhancements. First, the methodology relies on several assumptions that have so far not been verified. Secondly, an assessment of the achieved accuracy has not been addressed. In an attempt to answer both these open questions, it was considered appropriate to develop an alternative computational scheme based on the stochastic MCNPX code with the objective to provide reference numerical solutions. This paper presents the first steps undertaken in that direction. To start, a methodology for a volumetric neutron source transfer to full core MCNPX models with detailed CR as well as axial reflector representations is established. On this basis, the assumptions of the deterministic methodology are studied for selected CR configurations for two Beginning-of-Life cores by comparing the spatial neutron flux distributions obtained with the two approaches for the entire spectrum. Finally, for the high-energy range (E> 1 MeV) and for a few CRs, the new MCNPX scheme is applied to estimate the accumulated fluence over one real operated cycle and the results are compared with the deterministic approach.

    Full Text Available The Dedicated Control Channel (DCCH plays an important role in all generations of cellular networks, such as, GSM , HSPA and LTE ; through this logical channel, some information between user equipment and network can be carried. It should be considered that accessing to the DCCH is the entry gate of entrance to the every cellular network; and without a successful DCCH access call-setup process will not be possible. Hence, DCCH channel accessing is one of the most critical issues that RF planner and optimization engineers must consider. More than this, these schemes can contribute to achieve some algorithms in SON for ameliorating the DCCH accessing and serving better services at 4G. In this paper, a real fundamentally established cellular network (GSM is surveyed and its radio frequency network performance is evaluated and presented on the basis of KPI parameters in general. Furthermore, the DCCH Access Success in particular and different issues, findings, trials and improvements have been summarized. Also, recommendations have been listed to correlate the practical aspects of RF optimization, which affect the improvement of DCCH Access Success rate in cellular networks.

    2017-06-06

    This paper is concerned with the finite-horizon H∞ consensus problem for a class of discrete time-varying multiagent systems with external disturbances and missing measurements. To improve the communication reliability, redundant channels are introduced and the corresponding protocol is constructed for the information transmission over redundant channels. An event-triggered scheme is adopted to determine whether the information of agents should be transmitted to their neighbors. Subsequently, an observer-type event-triggered control protocol is proposed based on the latest received neighbors' information. The purpose of the addressed problem is to design a time-varying controller based on the observed information to achieve the H∞ consensus performance in a finite horizon. By utilizing a constrained recursive Riccati difference equation approach, some sufficient conditions are obtained to guarantee the H∞ consensus performance, and the controller parameters are also designed. Finally, a numerical example is provided to demonstrate the desired reliability of redundant channels and the effectiveness of the event-triggered control protocol.

    For providing fuel ignition at the high supersonic flow velocity original device was developed. Main element of this device in the form of wall slotted channel has to provide the high flow temperature in the area of mixture. Numerical simulation has been performed based on solving the full averaged Navier-Stokes equations, supplemented k-ɛ turbulence model. The experiments were carried out in the hotshot wind tunnel IT-302M at the mode of the attached pipe. The flow parameters at the model entrance were following: M = 2 - 5.8, p0 = 12 - 390bar, T0 = 1170 - 2930K at equivalence ratio of hydrogen from 0.6 to 1.1. Self-ignition of the hydrogen in the slotted channel has occurred at total flow temperature of 2250K at the combustor entrance. The combustion process is extended to the entire channel of the combustor. When the facility worked with decreasing parameters of the flow, combustion continued until drop of the static temperature of about 230K at the entrance of the combustor.

  19. Rotated Walsh-Hadamard Spreading with Robust Channel Estimation for a Coded MC-CDMA System

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Raulefs Ronald

    2004-01-01

    Full Text Available We investigate rotated Walsh-Hadamard spreading matrices for a broadband MC-CDMA system with robust channel estimation in the synchronous downlink. The similarities between rotated spreading and signal space diversity are outlined. In a multiuser MC-CDMA system, possible performance improvements are based on the chosen detector, the channel code, and its Hamming distance. By applying rotated spreading in comparison to a standard Walsh-Hadamard spreading code, a higher throughput can be achieved. As combining the channel code and the spreading code forms a concatenated code, the overall minimum Hamming distance of the concatenated code increases. This asymptotically results in an improvement of the bit error rate for high signal-to-noise ratio. Higher convolutional channel code rates are mostly generated by puncturing good low-rate channel codes. The overall Hamming distance decreases significantly for the punctured channel codes. Higher channel code rates are favorable for MC-CDMA, as MC-CDMA utilizes diversity more efficiently compared to pure OFDMA. The application of rotated spreading in an MC-CDMA system allows exploiting diversity even further. We demonstrate that the rotated spreading gain is still present for a robust pilot-aided channel estimator. In a well-designed system, rotated spreading extends the performance by using a maximum likelihood detector with robust channel estimation at the receiver by about 1 dB.

    Full Text Available Cooperative transmission is one of key techniques which can improve system capacity and transmit range with limit power in the next-generation communication systems. However, accurate Channel State Information (CSI is necessary at the destination for coherent detection. Consider a Dual-Hop Amplify-and-Forward (DHAF Cooperative Communication System (CCS, traditional linear channel estimation method, e.g., Least Square (LS, based assumption of the rich multipath cascaded channel, is robust and simple while at the cost of low spectrum efficiency. Recent channel measurements have shown that the wireless channel exhibits great sparse in some highdimensional space. In this study, we confirmed that cascaded channel exhibits sparse distribution if the two individual channels are sparse by using representative simulation results. Later, we propose an efficient sparse channel estimation method to take advantage of the inherent sparse prior information in DHAF CCS. Simulation results confirm the superiority of our proposed methods over LS-based linear channel estimation method.

    Shallow water acoustic channel estimation techniques are presented at the intersection of time, frequency, and sparsity. Specifically, a mathematical framework is introduced that translates the problem of channel estimation to non-uniform sparse channel recovery in two-dimensional frequency domain. This representation facilitates disambiguation of slowly varying channel components against high-energy transients, which occupy different frequency ranges and also exhibit significantly different sparsity along their local distribution. This useful feature is exploited to perform non-uniform sampling across different frequency ranges, with compressive sampling across higher Doppler frequencies and close to full-rate sampling at lower Doppler frequencies, to recover both slowly varying and rapidly fluctuating channel components at high precision. Extensive numerical experiments are performed to measure relative performance of the proposed channel estimation technique using non-uniform compressive sampling against traditional compressive sampling techniques as well as sparsity-constrained least squares across a range of observation window lengths, ambient noise levels, and sampling ratios. Numerical experiments are based on channel estimates from the SPACE08 experiment as well as on a recently developed channel simulator tested against several field trials.

  2. A Bayesian Hierarchical Modeling Scheme for Estimating Erosion Rates Under Current Climate Conditions

    Computational modeling of surface erosion processes is inherently difficult because of the four-dimensional nature of the problem and the multiple temporal and spatial scales that govern individual mechanisms. Landscapes are modified via surface and fluvial erosion and exhumation, each of which takes place over a range of time scales. Traditional field measurements of erosion/exhumation rates are scale dependent, often valid for a single point-wise location or averaging over large aerial extents and periods with intense and mild erosion. We present a method of remotely estimating erosion rates using a Bayesian hierarchical model based upon the stream power erosion law (SPEL). A Bayesian approach allows for estimating erosion rates using the deterministic relationship given by the SPEL and data on channel slopes and precipitation at the basin and sub-basin scale. The spatial scale associated with this framework is the elevation class, where each class is characterized by distinct morphologic behavior observed through different modes in the distribution of basin outlet elevations. Interestingly, the distributions of first-order outlets are similar in shape and extent to the distribution of precipitation events (i.e. individual storms) over a 14-year period between 1998-2011. We demonstrate an application of the Bayesian hierarchical modeling framework for five basins and one intermontane basin located in the central Andes between 5S and 20S. Using remotely sensed data of current annual precipitation rates from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and topography from a high resolution (3 arc-seconds) digital elevation map (DEM), our erosion rate estimates are consistent with decadal-scale estimates based on landslide mapping and sediment flux observations and 1-2 orders of magnitude larger than most millennial and million year timescale estimates from thermochronology and cosmogenic nuclides.

    2011-01-01

    A nonlinear channel estimator using complex Least Square Support Vector Machines (LS-SVM) is proposed for pilot-aided OFDM system and applied to Long Term Evolution (LTE) downlink under high mobility conditions. The estimation algorithm makes use of the reference signals to estimate the total frequency response of the highly selective multipath channel in the presence of non-Gaussian impulse noise interfering with pilot signals. Thus, the algorithm maps trained data into a high dimensional feature space and uses the structural risk minimization (SRM) principle to carry out the regression estimation for the frequency response function of the highly selective channel. The simulations show the effectiveness of the proposed method which has good performance and high precision to track the variations of the fading channels compared to the conventional LS method and it is robust at high speed mobility.

    Full Text Available This research study mainly focuses to develop an efficient channel estimation approach through swarm intelligence approach with lesser computational complexity. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM is a modulation approach used to fight with the selection of frequency of the transmission channels to attain high data rate without any disturbances. OFDM principle is to gain popularity in the wireless transmission area. OFDM is united with antenna at the transmitter and receiver to amplify the variety gain and to improve the system capacity on time-variant and frequency selective channels, ensuing in a Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO pattern. Least Square (LS and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE approaches are the most commonly used channel estimation techniques. In LS, the estimation process is simple but the problem is that it has high mean square error. In Low SNR, the MMSE is better than that of LS, but its main problem is its high computational complexity. In order to overcome the above said problems, a novel method is proposed in this research study which combines LS and MMSE. In this study improved PSO is introduced to select the best channel. Also that this proposed approach is more efficient and also requires less time to estimate the best channel when compared with other techniques. The experimental results show the performance of the proposed channel estimation method over the existing methods.

    In this paper, we consider the performance of a two-way amplify-and-forward relaying network (AF TWRN) in the presence of unequal power co-channel interferers (CCI). Specifically, we consider AF TWRN with an interference-limited relay and two noisy-nodes with channel estimation error and CCI. We derive the approximate signal-to-interference plus noise ratio expressions and then use these expressions to evaluate the outage probability and error probability.

    Full Text Available Carcass and price traits of 72,969 Hanwoo cows, bulls and steers aged 16 to 80 months at slaughter collected from 2002 to 2013 at 75 beef packing plants in Korea were analyzed to determine heritability, correlation and breeding value using the Multi-Trait restricted maximum likelihood (REML animal model procedure. The traits included carcass measurements, scores and grades at 24 h postmortem and bid prices at auction. Relatively high heritability was found for maturity (0.41±0.031, while moderate heritability estimates were obtained for backfat thickness (0.20±0.018, longissimus muscle (LM area (0.23±0.020, carcass weight (0.28±0.019, yield index (0.20±0.018, yield grade (0.16±0.017, marbling (0.28±0.021, texture (0.14±0.016, quality grade (0.26±0.016 and price/kg (0.24±0.025. Relatively low heritability estimates were observed for meat color (0.06±0.013 and fat color (0.06±0.012. Heritability estimates for most traits were lower than those in the literature. Genetic correlations of carcass measurements with characteristic scores or quality grade of carcass ranged from −0.27 to +0.21. Genetic correlations of yield grade with backfat thickness, LM area and carcass weight were 0.91, −0.43, and −0.09, respectively. Genetic correlations of quality grade with scores of marbling, meat color, fat color and texture were −0.99, 0.48, 0.47, and 0.98, respectively. Genetic correlations of price/kg with LM area, carcass weight, marbling, meat color, texture and maturity were 0.57, 0.64, 0.76, −0.41, −0.79, and −0.42, respectively. Genetic correlations of carcass price with LM area, carcass weight, marbling and texture were 0.61, 0.57, 0.64, and −0.73, respectively, with standard errors ranging from ±0.047 to ±0.058. The mean carcass weight breeding values increased by more than 8 kg, whereas the mean marbling scores decreased by approximately 0.2 from 2000 through 2009. Overall, the results suggest that genetic improvement of

    We improve upon our previous upper bound on the secrecy capacity of the wiretap channel with multiple transmit antennas and single-antenna receivers, with noisy main channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter (CSI-T). Specifically, we show that if the main CSI error does not scale with the power budget at the transmitter P̅, then the secrecy capacity is )bounded above essentially by log log (P̅ yielding a secure degree of freedom (sdof) equal to zero. However, if the main CSI error scales as O(P̅-β), for β ∈ [0,1], then the sdof is equal to β.

    Full Text Available In present of multi-path effect, the inter symbol interference (ISI always exists in the OFDM/OQAM system and the preamble based channel estimation for the conventional orthogonal frequency division multiplex with cyclic prefix (CP-OFDM is not feasible any more. Considering the characteristic of the extended Gaussian function (EGF, we propose two modified preamble based channel estimation by adding zero-value guard symbols, which are located at both sides (method A and the left side (method B of preamble reference symbol. Compared with the CP-OFDM system, the proposed preamble based channel estimation achieves 2dB improvement. Furthermore, we shorten the preamble without zero-value guard symbol to improve the spectrum efficiency. Unfortunately, the residual inter symbol interference (ISI from neighbor symbols degrade the channel estimation performance. We propose an iterative channel estimation method for OFDM/OQAM system to remove the residual ISI. Simulation results demonstrate that those proposed preamble design and iterative channel estimation methods are effective for OFDM/OQAM system.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available For cellular communication systems, mobility and limited radio coverage of a cell require calls to be handed over from one Base Station System (BSS to another. Due to the limited band width available in various cells, there is a finite probability that an ongoing call, while being handed off, may get dropped. Minimizing the dropping of ongoing calls during hand off is an important design criterion. Some digital cellular systems, e.g., the Global System for Mobile Communications and the IS-136, use Mobile-Assisted Hand off (MAHO, in which a Mobile Terminal (MT assists, it’s BSS and a mobiles witching center in making hand off decisions. MAHO requires an MT to regularly report, back to its serving BSS, its current radio-link state (defined in terms of the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI and the Bit Error Rate (BER of transmissions received from neighboring BSSs. In the proposed technique, the MT reports back not only the RSSI and the BER but the number of free channels that are available for the hand off traffic as well. This will ensure that a handed-off call has acceptable signal quality as well as a free available channel. The performance of this hand off technique is analyzed using an analytical model whose solution gives the desired performance measures in terms of blocking and dropping probabilities.

    The free-space optical (FSO) communication links with orbital angular momentum (OAM) multiplexing have been demonstrated that they can largely enhance the systems' capacity without a corresponding increase in spectral bandwidth, but the performance of the system is unavoidably disturbed by atmospheric turbulence (AT). Different from the existed AT disturbance, the OAM-multiplexed systems will cause both the burst and random errors for a single OAM state carrier and the `crosstalk' interference between the different OAM states carriers. In this paper, we propose a turbulence mitigation method to improve AT tolerance of OAM-multiplexed FSO communication links. In the proposed scheme, we use channel codes to correct the burst and random errors caused by AT for a single OAM state carrier; And we use wavefront correction method to correct the `crosstalk' interference between the different OAM states carriers. The improvements of AT tolerance are discussed by comparing the performance of OAM-multiplexed FSO communi...

  20. A scheme for regional rice yield estimation using ENVISAT ASAR data

    2009-01-01

    Information on rice growing areas and rice production is critical for most rice growing countries to make state and economic policies. However, the areas where rice crop is cultivated are often cloudy and rainy, which entails the use of radar remote sensing data for rice monitoring. In this paper, a practical scheme to integrate multi-temporal and multi-polarization ENVISAT ASAR data into rice crop model for regional rice yield estimation has been presented. To achieve this, rice distribution information should be obtained first by rice mapping method to retrieve rice fields from ASAR images, and then an assimilation method is applied to use the observed multi-temporal rice backscattering coefficients which are grouped for each rice pixel to re-initialize ORYZA2000 to predict rice yield. The assimilation method re-initializes the model with optimal input parameters, allowing a better temporal agreement between the rice backscattering coefficients retrieved from ASAR data and the rice backscattering coefficients simulated by a coupled model, i.e., the combination of ORYZA2000 and a semi-empirical rice backscatter model through LAI. The SCE-UA optimization algorithm is employed to determine the optimal set of input parameters. After the re-initialization, rice yield for each rice pixel is calculated, and the yield map over the area of interest is produced. The scheme was validated over Xinghua study area located in the middle of Jiangsu Province of China by using the data set of an experimental campaign carried out during the 2006 rice season. The result shows that the obtained rice yield map generally overestimates the actual rice production by 13% on average and with a root mean square error of approximately 1133 kg/ha on validation sites, but the tendency of rice growth status and spatial variation of the rice yield are well predicted and highly consistent with the actual production variation.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Virtual reality (VR technology along with treadmill training (TT can effectively provide goal-oriented practice and promote improved motor learning in patients with neurological disorders. Moreover, the VR + TT scheme may enhance cognitive engagement for more effective gait rehabilitation and greater transfer to over ground walking. For this purpose, we developed an individualized treadmill controller with a novel speed estimation scheme using swing foot velocity, which can enable user-driven treadmill walking (UDW to more closely simulate over ground walking (OGW during treadmill training. OGW involves a cyclic acceleration-deceleration profile of pelvic velocity that contrasts with typical treadmill-driven walking (TDW, which constrains a person to walk at a preset constant speed. In this study, we investigated the effects of the proposed speed adaptation controller by analyzing the gait kinematics of UDW and TDW, which were compared to those of OGW at three pre-determined velocities. Methods Ten healthy subjects were asked to walk in each mode (TDW, UDW, and OGW at three pre-determined speeds (0.5 m/s, 1.0 m/s, and 1.5 m/s with real time feedback provided through visual displays. Temporal-spatial gait data and 3D pelvic kinematics were analyzed and comparisons were made between UDW on a treadmill, TDW, and OGW. Results The observed step length, cadence, and walk ratio defined as the ratio of stride length to cadence were not significantly different between UDW and TDW. Additionally, the average magnitude of pelvic acceleration peak values along the anterior-posterior direction for each step and the associated standard deviations (variability were not significantly different between the two modalities. The differences between OGW and UDW and TDW were mainly in swing time and cadence, as have been reported previously. Also, step lengths between OGW and TDW were different for 0.5 m/s and 1.5 m/s gait velocities

    In this paper, the problem of pilot beam pattern design for channel estimation in massive multiple-input multiple-output systems with a large number of transmit antennas at the base station is considered, and a new algorithm for pilot beam pattern design for optimal channel estimation is proposed under the assumption that the channel is a stationary Gauss-Markov random process. The proposed algorithm designs the pilot beam pattern sequentially by exploiting the properties of Kalman filtering and the associated prediction error covariance matrices and also the channel statistics such as spatial and temporal channel correlation. The resulting design generates a sequentially-optimal sequence of pilot beam patterns with low complexity for a given set of system parameters. Numerical results show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

    Infiltration along ephemeral channels plays an important role in groundwater recharge in arid regions. A model is presented for estimating spatial variability of seepage due to streambed heterogeneity along channels based on measurements of streamflow-front velocities in initially dry channels. The diffusion-wave approximation to the Saint-Venant equations, coupled with Philip's equation for infiltration, is connected to the groundwater model MODFLOW and is calibrated by adjusting the saturated hydraulic conductivity of the channel bed. The model is applied to portions of two large water delivery canals, which serve as proxies for natural ephemeral streams. Estimated seepage rates compare well with previously published values. Possible sources of error stem from uncertainty in Manning's roughness coefficients, soil hydraulic properties and channel geometry. Model performance would be most improved through more frequent longitudinal estimates of channel geometry and thalweg elevation, and with measurements of stream stage over time to constrain wave timing and shape. This model is a potentially valuable tool for estimating spatial variability in longitudinal seepage along intermittent and ephemeral channels over a wide range of bed slopes and the influence of seepage rates on groundwater levels.

    2006-01-01

    In this paper, a simple method is presented for multi-user space-time channel estimation in Time Division-Synchronized Code Division Multiple Access (TD-SCDMA) systems. The method is based on a specific midamble assignment strategy, which results in a cyclic Toeplitz midamble-matrix in the linear equation of the received data vectors. A Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)-based algorithm is used to obtain the estimate of the uplink multi-user space-time channels. Furthermore, the estimated space-time channel is applied to the identification of multi-paths for each user, and Direction Of Arrival (DOA) estimation for each path is carried out by using the extracted spatial signature vector. Aside from the simplicity in computation, the proposed direction of arrival estimation method can effectively resolve multi-paths regardless of the correlation and angle separations of the multi-paths.

    2009-01-01

    This article investigates the performance of hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) with code combining over the ideally interleaved Nakagami-m fading channel. Two retransmission protocols with coherent equal gain code combining are adopted, where the entire frame and several selected portions of the frame are repeated in protocols Ⅰ and Ⅱ, respectively. Protocol Ⅱ could be viewed as a generalization of the recently proposed reliability-based HARQ. To facilitate performance analysis, an approximation of the product of two independent Nakagami-m distributed random variables is first developed. Then the approximate analysis is utilized to obtain exact frame error probability (FEP) for protocol Ⅰ, and the upper bound of the FEP for protocol Ⅱ. Furthermore, the throughput performance of both two protocols is presented. Simulation results show the reliability of the theoretical analysis, where protocol Ⅱ outperforms protocol Ⅰ in the throughput performance due to the reduced amount of transmitted information.

    2012-01-01

    This paper addresses the problem of channel estimation in multi-cell interference-limited cellular networks. We consider systems employing multiple antennas and are interested in both the finite and large-scale antenna number regimes (so-called "Massive MIMO"). Such systems deal with the multi-cell interference by way of per-cell beamforming applied at each base station. Channel estimation in such networks, which is known to be hampered by the pilot contamination effect, constitute a major bottleneck for overall performance. We present a novel approach which tackles this problem by enabling a low-rate coordination between cells during the channel estimation phase itself. The coordination makes use of the additional second-order statistical information about the user channels, which are shown to offer a powerful way of discriminating across interfering users with even strongly correlated pilot sequences. Importantly, we demonstrate analytically that in the large number of antennas regime the pilot contaminatio...

    In this paper, adaptive modulation with channel estimation in high-speed packet-based Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) communication systems for beyond 3G are discussed. Different adaptive modulation and channel estimation methods are presented and compared, then those methods suitable for our intended application are chosen. Conclusions can be drawn from computer simulations that with proper selection of packet length and subband width, wide subband adaptive modulation with Least Square plus Discrete-time Fourier Transform (LS-DFT) channel estimation can give an acceptable performance with low complexity for channel with low Doppler shift and small path delay. Otherwise, narrow subband or subcarrier adaptive modulation together with LS-DFT plus Decision Directed (LS-DFT-DD) must be used.

  10. Detection-Guided Fast Affine Projection Channel Estimator for Speech Applications

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Yan Wu Jennifer

    2007-04-01

    Full Text Available In various adaptive estimation applications, such as acoustic echo cancellation within teleconferencing systems, the input signal is a highly correlated speech. This, in general, leads to extremely slow convergence of the NLMS adaptive FIR estimator. As a result, for such applications, the affine projection algorithm (APA or the low-complexity version, the fast affine projection (FAP algorithm, is commonly employed instead of the NLMS algorithm. In such applications, the signal propagation channel may have a relatively low-dimensional impulse response structure, that is, the number m of active or significant taps within the (discrete-time modelled channel impulse response is much less than the overall tap length n of the channel impulse response. For such cases, we investigate the inclusion of an active-parameter detection-guided concept within the fast affine projection FIR channel estimator. Simulation results indicate that the proposed detection-guided fast affine projection channel estimator has improved convergence speed and has lead to better steady-state performance than the standard fast affine projection channel estimator, especially in the important case of highly correlated speech input signals.

    Using an 850-nanometer-wavelength free-space optical (FSO)communications system of our own design, we acquired field data for the transmitted and received signals in fog at Point Loma, CA for a range of optical depths within the multiple-scattering regime. Statistical estimators for the atmospheric channel transfer function and the related coherency function were computed directly from the experimental data. We interpret the resulting channel transfer function estimates in terms of the physics of the atmospheric propagation channel and fog aerosol particle distributions. We investigate the behavior of the estimators using both real field-test data and simulated propagation data. We compare the field-data channel transfer function estimates against the outputs from a computationally-intensive radiative-transfer theory model-based approach, which we also developed previously for the FSO multiple-scattering atmospheric channel. Our results show that the data-driven channel transfer function estimates are in close agreement with the radiative transfer modeling, and provide comparable receiver signal detection performance improvements while being significantly less time and computationally-intensive.

    Local Area Networks are in common use for data communications and have enjoyed great success. Recently, there is a growing interest in using a single network to support many applications in addition to traditional data traffic. These additional applications introduce new requirements in terms of volume of traffic and real-time delivery of data which are not met by existing networks. To satisfy these requirements, a high-bandwidth tranmission medium, such as fiber optics, and a distributed channel access scheme for the efficient sharing of the bandwidth among the various applications are needed. As far as the throughput-delay requirements of the various application are concerned, a network structure along with a distributed channel access are proposed which incorporate appropriate scheduling policies for the transmission of outstanding messages on the network. A dynamic scheduling policy was devised which outperforms all existing policies in terms of minimizing the expected cost per message. A broadcast mechanism was devised for the efficient dissemination of all relevant information. Fiber optic technology is considered for the high-bandwidth transmisison medium.

  13. An adaptive hybrid EnKF-OI scheme for efficient state-parameter estimation of reactive contaminant transport models

    2014-09-01

    Reactive contaminant transport models are used by hydrologists to simulate and study the migration and fate of industrial waste in subsurface aquifers. Accurate transport modeling of such waste requires clear understanding of the system\\'s parameters, such as sorption and biodegradation. In this study, we present an efficient sequential data assimilation scheme that computes accurate estimates of aquifer contamination and spatially variable sorption coefficients. This assimilation scheme is based on a hybrid formulation of the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) and optimal interpolation (OI) in which solute concentration measurements are assimilated via a recursive dual estimation of sorption coefficients and contaminant state variables. This hybrid EnKF-OI scheme is used to mitigate background covariance limitations due to ensemble under-sampling and neglected model errors. Numerical experiments are conducted with a two-dimensional synthetic aquifer in which cobalt-60, a radioactive contaminant, is leached in a saturated heterogeneous clayey sandstone zone. Assimilation experiments are investigated under different settings and sources of model and observational errors. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed hybrid EnKF-OI scheme successfully recovers both the contaminant and the sorption rate and reduces their uncertainties. Sensitivity analyses also suggest that the adaptive hybrid scheme remains effective with small ensembles, allowing to reduce the ensemble size by up to 80% with respect to the standard EnKF scheme. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

    A channel estimation approach for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing with multiple-input and multipleoutput(MIMO-OFDM)in rapid fading channels is proposed.This approach combines the advantages of an optimal training sequence based least-square(DLS)algorithm and an expectation-maximization(EM)algorithm.The channels at the training blocks are estimated using an estimator based on the OLS algorithm.To compensate for the fast Rayleigh fading at the data blocks,a time domain based Gaussian interpolation filter is presented.Furthermore,an EM algorithm is introduced to improve the performance of channel estimation by a few iterations.Simulations show that this channel estimation approach can effectively track rapid channel variation.

    In this paper, we consider subspace based channel estimation methods for Turbo parallel interference cancellation and decoding integrating frequency diversity combining (Turbo FDC-PIC/decoding) over convolutionally coded multi-carrier Direct-sequence Code-division multiple access (DS-CDMA). Applying Turbo principle, we propose blind subspace iterative channel estimation, and apply it to Turbo FDC-PIC/decoding to perform joint channel estimation, detection and decoding. The simu- lation results show that Turbo FDC-PIC/decoding with blind subspace iterative channel estimation has greater performance improvement than that with blind subspace noniterative channel estimation or Pilot symbol aided (PSA) iterative channel estimation, and after a number of iterations, can even obtain performance close to Turbo FDC-PIC/decoding with ideal channel estimation. For example, with the chosen simulation parameter and for the fourth iteration, at the Signal-to-noise rate (SNR) of 7dB, Turbo FDC-PIC/decoding with blind subspace iterative channel estimation acquires the bit error rate of 9×10-4, nearly one order of magnitude lower than that of Turbo FDC-PIC/decoding with PSA iterative channel estimation or with blind subspace noniterative channel estimation. Besides, for blind subspace iterative channel estimation, pilot symbols aren't needed to insert in coded symbols, and therefore data rate is not lowered.

  17. Coarse-Grain Bandwidth Estimation Scheme for Large-Scale Network

    2013-01-01

    A large-scale network that supports a large number of users can have an aggregate data rate of hundreds of Mbps at any time. High-fidelity simulation of a large-scale network might be too complicated and memory-intensive for typical commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) tools. Unlike a large commercial wide-area-network (WAN) that shares diverse network resources among diverse users and has a complex topology that requires routing mechanism and flow control, the ground communication links of a space network operate under the assumption of a guaranteed dedicated bandwidth allocation between specific sparse endpoints in a star-like topology. This work solved the network design problem of estimating the bandwidths of a ground network architecture option that offer different service classes to meet the latency requirements of different user data types. In this work, a top-down analysis and simulation approach was created to size the bandwidths of a store-and-forward network for a given network topology, a mission traffic scenario, and a set of data types with different latency requirements. These techniques were used to estimate the WAN bandwidths of the ground links for different architecture options of the proposed Integrated Space Communication and Navigation (SCaN) Network. A new analytical approach, called the "leveling scheme," was developed to model the store-and-forward mechanism of the network data flow. The term "leveling" refers to the spreading of data across a longer time horizon without violating the corresponding latency requirement of the data type. Two versions of the leveling scheme were developed: 1. A straightforward version that simply spreads the data of each data type across the time horizon and doesn't take into account the interactions among data types within a pass, or between data types across overlapping passes at a network node, and is inherently sub-optimal. 2. Two-state Markov leveling scheme that takes into account the second order behavior of

  18. Estimation of snow water equivalent using a radiance assimilation scheme with a multi-layered snow physical model

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mounirou Toure, Ally

    The feasibility of a radiance assimilation using a multi-layered snow physical model to estimate snow physical parameters is studied. The work is divided in five parts. The first two chapters are dedicated to the literature review. In the third chapter, experimental work was conducted in the alpine snow to estimate snow correlation (for microwave emission modelling) using near-infrared digital photography. We made microwave radiometric and near-infrared reflectance measurements of snow slabs under different experimental conditions. We used an empirical relation to link near-infrared reflectance of snow to the specific surface area (SSA), and converted the SSA into the correlation length. From the measurements of snow radiances at 21 and 35 GHz, we derived the microwave scattering coefficient by inverting two coupled radiative transfer models (RTM) (the sandwich and six-flux model). The correlation lengths found are in the same range as those determined in the literature using cold laboratory work. The technique shows great potential in the determination of the snow correlation length under field conditions. In the fourth chapter, the performance of the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) for snow water equivalent (SWE) estimation is assessed by assimilating synthetic microwave observations at Ground Based Microwave Radiometer (GBMR-7) frequencies (18.7, 23.8, 36.5, 89 vertical and horizontal polarization) into a snow physics model, CROCUS. CROCUS has a realistic stratigraphic and ice layer modelling scheme. This work builds on previous methods that used snow physics model with limited number of layers. Data assimilation methods require accurate predictions of the brightness temperature (Tb) emitted by the snowpack. It has been shown that the accuracy of RTMs is sensitive to the stratigraphic representation of the snowpack. However, as the stratigraphic fidelity increases, the number of layers increases, as does the number of state variables estimated in the assimilation

    Full Text Available The development and assessment of spectrum management methods for the copper access network are usually conducted under the assumption of accurate channel information. Acquiring such information implies, in practice, estimation of the crosstalk coupling functions between the twisted-pair lines in the access network. This type of estimation is not supported or required by current digital subscriber line (DSL standards. In this work, we investigate the impact of the inaccuracies in crosstalk estimation on the performance of dynamic spectrum management (DSM algorithms. A recently proposed crosstalk channel estimator is considered and a statistical sensitivity analysis is conducted to investigate the effects of the crosstalk estimation error on the bitloading and on the achievable data rate for a transmission line. The DSM performance is then evaluated based on the achievable data rates obtained through experiments with DSL setups and computer simulations. Since these experiments assume network scenarios consisting of real twisted-pair cables, both crosstalk channel estimates and measurements (for a reference comparison are considered. The results indicate that the error introduced by the adopted estimation procedure does not compromise the performance of the DSM techniques, that is, the considered crosstalk channel estimator provides enough means for a practical implementation of DSM.

Based on the minimum mean square criterion, it performs an accurate detection of a user in a frequency band, by achieving a quasi-optimal channel and noise variance estimation if the signal is present, and by estimating the noise level in the band if the signal is absent.

The starting point of the first method is prior probability density functions for both signal and noise and it is assumed that their Laplace transforms (moment generating functions) are available. The corresponding posterior mean integral that defines...... inference is performed by particle filtering. The speech model is a time-varying auto-regressive model reparameterized by formant frequencies and bandwidths. The noise is assumed non-stationary and white.

    2010-01-01

    In this paper, we describe direct-sequence code-division multiple-access (DS-CDMA) systems with quadriphase-shift keying in which channel estimation, coherent demodulation, and decoding are iteratively performed without the use of any training or pilot symbols. An expectation-maximization channel-estimation algorithm for the fading amplitude, phase, and the interference power spectral density (PSD) due to the combined interference and thermal noise is proposed for DS-CDMA systems with irregular repeat-accumulate codes. After initial estimates of the fading amplitude, phase, and interference PSD are obtained from the received symbols, subsequent values of these parameters are iteratively updated by using the soft feedback from the channel decoder. The updated estimates are combined with the received symbols and iteratively passed to the decoder. The elimination of pilot symbols simplifies the system design and allows either an enhanced information throughput, an improved bit error rate, or greater spectral eff...

    Full Text Available Distribution of velocity in channel is one of the most parameters for solution of hydraulic problems. Determination of energy coefficient, momentum and distribution of sediment concentration depend on distribution of velocity profile. The entropy parameter of a channel section can be determined from the relation between the mean and maximum velocities. A technique has been developed to determine a velocity profile on a single vertical passing through the point of maximum velocity in a channel cross section. This method is a way in order to quick and cheap estimating of velocity distribution with high accuracy in channels. So that in this research the power estimation of Chiu method base on entropy concept was determined. Also Chiu’s equation that is based on entropy concept and probability domain, has compared with logarithmic and exponential equations to estimation of velocity profile in width of channel in various depths. The results show that Chiu’s equation better than logarithmic and exponential equations to estimation of velocity profile in width of channel.

    The accuracy of quantitative precipitation estimation is of significant importance for urban areas due to the potentially damaging consequences that can result from pluvial flooding. Improved accuracy could be accomplished by merging rain gauge measurements with weather radar data through different merging methods. Several factors may affect the accuracy of the merged data, and the gauge density used for merging is one of the most important. However, if there are no gauges inside the research area, then a gauge network outside the research area can be used for the merging. Generally speaking, the denser the rain gauge network is, the better the merging results that can be achieved. However, in practice, the rain gauge network around the research area is fixed, and the research question is about the optimal merging area. The hypothesis is that if the merging area is too small, there are fewer gauges for merging and thus the result would be poor. If the merging area is too large, gauges far away from the research area can be included in merging. However, due to their large distances, those gauges far away from the research area provide little relevant information to the study and may even introduce noise in merging. Therefore, an optimal merging area that produces the best merged rainfall estimation in the research area could exist. To test this hypothesis, the distance from the centre of the research area and the number of merging gauges around the research area were gradually increased and merging with a new domain of radar data was then performed. The performance of the new merging scheme was compared with a gridded interpolated rainfall from four experimental rain gauges installed inside the research area for validation. The result of this analysis shows that there is indeed an optimum distance from the centre of research area and consequently an optimum number of rain gauges that produce the best merged rainfall data inside the research area. This study is of

    Full Text Available In the progress of transmission systems that uses the diversity in various domains, the execution of competent baseband receivers categorized by affordable computational load is an essential thing. This would be an imperative point in the future expansion of 4G systems in which the space, time and frequency diversity will be merged together to enhance the system throughput. Here, we develop a channel estimation technique for MC-CDMA system for the minimization of BER and the maximization of throughput. The maximization of throughput is an essential thing for the successful reception of signal. At the receiver side, the original data is obtained based on the channel estimation algorithm and the inverse process of the transmitter side is performed in the receiver side. The major contribution of our work is to estimate the channel information in an adaptive way. We estimate the channel using the cuckoo search algorithm based on the best solution we obtain from the cuckoo search algorithm. After estimating the channel, we calculate the Bit Error Rate (BER performance and throughput based on the acknowledgement send by the receiver. Experimental results show that our technique is better in terms of BER and throughput compared to the existing technique.

    2016-07-22

    By virtue of large antenna arrays, massive MIMO systems have a potential to yield higher spectral and energy efficiency in comparison with the conventional MIMO systems. This paper addresses uplink channel estimation in massive MIMO-OFDM systems with frequency selective channels. We propose an efficient distributed minimum mean square error (MMSE) algorithm that can achieve near optimal channel estimates at low complexity by exploiting the strong spatial correlation among antenna array elements. The proposed method involves solving a reduced dimensional MMSE problem at each antenna followed by a repetitive sharing of information through collaboration among neighboring array elements. To further enhance the channel estimates and/or reduce the number of reserved pilot tones, we propose a data-aided estimation technique that relies on finding a set of most reliable data carriers. Furthermore, we use stochastic geometry to quantify the pilot contamination, and in turn use this information to analyze the effect of pilot contamination on channel MSE. The simulation results validate our analysis and show near optimal performance of the proposed estimation algorithms.

    In this paper, stochastic differential equations (SDEs) are used to model ultrawideband (UWB) indoor wireless channels. We show that the impulse responses for time-varying indoor wireless channels can be approximated in a mean square sense as close as desired by impulse responses that can be realized by SDEs. The state variables represent the inphase and quadrature components of the UWB channel. The expected maximization and extended Kalman filter are employed to recursively identify and estimate the channel parameters and states, respectively, from online received signal strength measured data. Both resolvable and non-resolvable multipath received signals are considered and represented as small-scaled Nakagami fading. The proposed models together with the estimation algorithm are tested using UWB indoor measurement data demonstrating the method s viability and the results are presented.

    The importance of solar radiation on earth's surface is depicted in its wide range of applications in the fields of meteorology, agricultural sciences, engineering, hydrology, crop water requirements, climatic changes and energy assessment. It is quite random in nature as it has to go through different processes of assimilation and dispersion while on its way to earth. Compared to other meteorological parameters, solar radiation is quite infrequently measured, for example, the worldwide ratio of stations collecting solar radiation to those collecting temperature is 1:500 (Badescu, 2008). Researchers, therefore, have to rely on indirect techniques of estimation that include nonlinear models, artificial intelligence (e.g. neural networks), remote sensing and numerical weather predictions (NWP). This study proposes a hybrid numerical prediction scheme for solar radiation estimation in un-gauged catchments. It uses the PSU/NCAR's Mesoscale Modelling system (MM5) (Grell et al., 1995) to parameterise the cloud effect on extraterrestrial radiation by dividing the atmosphere into four layers of very high (6-12 km), high (3-6 km), medium (1.5-3) and low (0-1.5) altitudes from earth. It is believed that various cloud forms exist within each of these layers. An hourly time series of upper air pressure and relative humidity data sets corresponding to all of these layers is determined for the Brue catchment, southwest UK, using MM5. Cloud Index (CI) was then determined using (Yang and Koike, 2002): 1 p?bi [ (Rh - Rh )] ci =------- max 0.0,---------cri dp pbi - ptipti (1- Rhcri) where, pbi and pti represent the air pressure at the top and bottom of each layer and Rhcri is the critical value of relative humidity at which a certain cloud type is formed. Output from a global clear sky solar radiation model (MRM v-5) (Kambezidis and Psiloglu, 2008) is used along with meteorological datasets of temperature and precipitation and astronomical information. The analysis is aided by the

    Lubrication theory is broadly applicable to the flow characterization of thin fluid films and the motion of particles near surfaces. We offer an extension to lubrication theory by considering higher-order terms of the analytical approximation to describe the fluid flow in a channel with features of a modest aspect ratio. We find good agreement between our analytical results and numerical simulations. We show that the extended lubrication theory is a robust tool for an accurate estimate of laminar fluid flow in channels with features on the order of the channel height, accounting for both smooth and sharp changes in geometry.

    2012-01-01

    In this paper, we propose to improve the performance of the channel estimation for LTE Downlink systems under the effect of the channel length. As LTE Downlink system is a MIMO-OFDMA based system, a cyclic prefix (CP) is inserted at the beginning of each transmitted OFDM symbol in order to mitigate both inter-carrier interference (ICI) and inter-symbol interference (ISI). The inserted CP is usually equal to or longer than the channel length. However, the cyclic prefix can be shorter because of some unforeseen channel behaviour. Previous works have shown that in the case where the cyclic prefix is equal to or longer than the channel length, LMMSE performs better than LSE but at the cost of computational complexity .In the other case, LMMSE performs also better than LS only for low SNR values. However, LS shows better performance for LTE Downlink systems for high SNR values. Therefore, we propose a hybrid LS-LMMSE channel estimation technique robust to the channel length effect. MATLAB Monte-Carlo simulations a...

    A turbulent channel flow at Ret au = 100 with periodic boundary conditions is estimated with linear stochastic estimation only based on the wall measurement, i.e. the shear-stress in the streamwise and spanwise directions as well as the pressure over the entire wavenumbers. The results reveal that instantaneous measurement on the wall governs the success of the estimation in y+ feed the velocity components from the linear stochastic estimation via the body-force term into the Navier-Stokes system; however, the estimation slightly improves in the log layer, indicating some benefit of involving a dynamical system but over-suppression of turbulent kinetic energy beyond the viscous sublayer by the linear stochastic estimation. Motions inaccurately estimated in the buffer layer prevent from further reconstruction toward the centerline even if we relax the feedback forcing and let the flow evolve nonlinearly through the estimator. We also argue the inherent limitation of turbulent flow estimation based on the wall measurement.

    Channel estimation is a key technology in indoor wireless visible light communications (VLCs). Using the training se- quence (TS), this paper investigates the channel estimation in indoor wireless visible light communications. Based on the propagation and signal modulation characteristics of visible light, a link model for the indoor wireless visible light commu- nications is established. Using the model, three channel estimation methods, i.e., the correlation method, the least square (LS) method and the minimum mean square error (MMSE) method, are proposed. Moreover, the performances of the proposed three methods are evaluated by computer simulation. The results show that the performance of the correlation method is the worst, the LS method is suitable for higher signal to noise ratio (SNR), and the MMSE method obtains the best performance at the expense of highest complexity.

    Full Text Available Abstract In this article, design of preamble for channel estimation and pilot symbols for pilot-assisted channel estimation in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing system with null subcarriers is studied. Both the preambles and pilot symbols are designed to minimize the l 2 or the l ∞ norm of the channel estimate mean-squared errors (MSE in frequency-selective environments. We use convex optimization technique to find optimal power distribution to the preamble by casting the MSE minimization problem into a semidefinite programming problem. Then, using the designed optimal preamble as an initial value, we iteratively select the placement and optimally distribute power to the selected pilot symbols. Design examples consistent with IEEE 802.11a as well as IEEE 802.16e are provided to illustrate the superior performance of our proposed method over the equi-spaced equi-powered pilot symbols and the partially equi-spaced pilot symbols.

    2008-05-01

    Full Text Available This paper investigates the effects of channel estimation error at the receiver on the achievable rate of distributed space-time block coded transmission. We consider that multiple transmitters cooperate to send the signal to the receiver and derive lower and upper bounds on the mutual information of distributed space-time block codes (D-STBCs when the channel gains and channel estimation error variances pertaining to different transmitter-receiver links are unequal. Then, assessing the gap between these two bounds, we provide a limiting value that upper bounds the latter at any input transmit powers, and also show that the gap is minimum if the receiver can estimate the channels of different transmitters with the same accuracy. We further investigate positioning the receiving node such that the mutual information bounds of D-STBCs and their robustness to the variations of the subchannel gains are maximum, as long as the summation of these gains is constant. Furthermore, we derive the optimum power transmission strategy to achieve the outage capacity lower bound of D-STBCs under arbitrary numbers of transmit and receive antennas, and provide closed-form expressions for this capacity metric. Numerical simulations are conducted to corroborate our analysis and quantify the effects of imperfect channel estimation.

Channel estimation plays a key role on the performance of the MIMO-OFDM receiver. In this paper, we present five channel estimation algorithms and study their performance in a simulated beyond 3G TDD mobile system. Simulation results show that the adaptive 2D-LMS algorithm we proposed recently has the best performance when the signal to noise ratio is lower than 8 dB.

    Full Text Available Millimeter-wave communication (mmWC is considered as one of the pioneer candidates for 5G indoor and outdoor systems in E-band. To subdue the channel propagation characteristics in this band, high dimensional antenna arrays need to be deployed at both the base station (BS and mobile sets (MS. Unlike the conventional MIMO systems, Millimeter-wave (mmW systems lay away to employ the power predatory equipment such as ADC or RF chain in each branch of MIMO system because of hardware constraints. Such systems leverage to the hybrid precoding (combining architecture for downlink deployment. Because there is a large array at the transceiver, it is impossible to estimate the channel by conventional methods. This paper develops a new algorithm to estimate the mmW channel by exploiting the sparse nature of the channel. The main contribution is the representation of a sparse channel model and the exploitation of a modified approach based on Multiple Measurement Vector (MMV greedy sparse framework and subspace method of Multiple Signal Classification (MUSIC which work together to recover the indices of non-zero elements of an unknown channel matrix when the rank of the channel matrix is defected. In practical rank-defective channels, MUSIC fails, and we need to propose new extended MUSIC approaches based on subspace enhancement to compensate the limitation of MUSIC. Simulation results indicate that our proposed extended MUSIC algorithms will have proper performances and moderate computational speeds, and that they are even able to work in channels with an unknown sparsity level.

    For two-way video communications over wireless channels using the automatic repeat request (ARQ) retransmission scheme, TMN8 rate control scheme is not effective in minimizing the number of frames skipped and cannot guarantee video quality during the retransmissions of error packets. This paper presents a joint source channel bit allocation scheme that allocates target bits according to encoder buffer fullness and estimation of channel condition by retransmission information. The results obtained from implementing our scheme in H. 263 + coder over wireless channel model show that our proposed scheme encodes the video sequences with lower and steadier buffer delay, fewer frames skipped and higher average PSNR compared to TMN8.

    Full Text Available Ultra wideband (UWB communication is mainly used for short range of communication in wireless personal area networks. Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM is being used as a key physical layer technology for Fourth Generation (4G wireless communication. OFDM based communication gives high spectral efficiency and mitigates Inter-symbol Interference (ISI in a wireless medium. In this paper the IEEE 802.15.3a based Multiband OFDM (MB OFDM system is considered. The pilot based channel estimation techniques are considered to analyze the performance of MB OFDM systems over Liner Time Invariant (LTI Channel models. In this paper, pilot based Least Square (LS and Least Minimum Mean Square Error (LMMSE channel estimation technique has been considered for UWB OFDM system.

    B. ZHANG

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper is concerned with a rate-splitting based transmission strategy for the two-user symmetric Gaussian interference channel that contains common messages only. Each transmitter encodes its common message into multiple layers by multiple codebooks that drawn from one separate code book, and transmits the superposition of the messages corresponding to these layers; each receiver decodes the messages from all layers of the two users successively. Two schemes are proposed for decoding order and optimal power allocation among layers respectively. With the proposed decoding order scheme, the sum-rate can be increased by rate-splitting, especially at the optimal number of rate-splitting, using average power allocation in moderate and weak interference regime. With the two proposed schemes at the receiver and the transmitter respectively, the sum-rate achieves the inner bound of HK without time-sharing. Numerical results show that the proposed optimal power allocation scheme with the proposed decoding order can achieve significant improvement of the performance over equal power allocation, and achieve the sum-rate within two bits per channel use (bits/channel use of the sum capacity.

  5. Novel receivers for AF relaying with distributed STBC using cascaded and disintegrated channel estimation

    2012-04-01

    New coherent receivers are derived for a pilot-symbol-aided distributed space-time block-coded system with imperfect channel state information which do not perform channel estimation at the destination by using the received pilot signals directly for decoding. The derived receivers are based on new metrics that use distribution of the channels and the noise to achieve improved symbol-error-rate (SER) performance. The SER performance of the derived receivers is further improved by utilizing the decision history in the receivers. The decision history is also incorporated in the existing Euclidean metric to improve its performance. Simulation results show that, for 16-quadrature-amplitude-modulation in a Rayleigh fading channel, a performance gain of up to 2.5 dB can be achieved for the new receivers compared with the conventional mismatched coherent receiver. © 2012 IEEE.

    Full Text Available Sparsity constraint channel estimation using compressive sensing approach has gained widespread interest in recent times. Mostly, the approach utilizes either the l1-norm or l0-norm relaxation to improve the performance of LMS-type algorithms. In this study, we present the adaptive channel estimation of time-varying ultra wideband channels, which have shown to be sparse, in an indoor environment using sparsity-constraint LMS and NLMS algorithms for different sparsity measures. For a less sparse CIR, higher weightings are allocated to the sparse penalty term. Simulation results show improved performance of the sparsity-constraint algorithms in terms of convergence speed and mean square error performance.

    Offset quadrature amplitude modulation (offset-QAM) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) exhibits enhanced net data rates compared to conventional OFDM, and reduced complexity compared to Nyquist FDM (N-FDM). However, channel estimation in discrete-Fourier-transform (DFT) based offset-QAM OFDM is different from that in conventional OFDM and requires particular study. In this paper, we derive a closed-form expression for the demultiplexed signal in DFT-based offset-QAM systems and show that although the residual crosstalk is orthogonal to the decoded signal, its existence degrades the channel estimation performance when the conventional least-square method is applied. We propose and investigate four channel estimation algorithms for offset-QAM OFDM that vary in terms of performance, complexity, and tolerance to system parameters. It is theoretically and experimentally shown that simple channel estimation can be realized in offset-QAM OFDM with the achieved performance close to the theoretical limit. This, together with the existing advantages over conventional OFDM and N-FDM, makes this technology very promising for optical communication systems.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available The implementation of efficient baseband receivers characterized by affordable computational load is a crucial point in the development of transmission systems exploiting diversity in different domains. This would be a crucial point in the future development of 4G systems, where space, time, and frequency diversity will be combined together in order to increase system throughput. In this framework, a linear multiuser detector for MC-CDMA systems with Alamouti's Space-Time Block Coding (STBC, which is inspired by the concept of Minimum Conditional Bit Error Rate (MCBER, is proposed. The MCBER combiner has been implemented in adaptive way by using Least-Mean-Square (LMS optimization. The estimation of Channel State Information (CSI, necessary to make practically feasible the MCBER detection, is aided by a Genetic Algorithm (GA. The obtained receiver scheme is near-optimal, as both LMS-based MCBER and GA-assisted channel estimation perform closely to optimum in fulfilling their respective tasks. Simulation results evidenced that the proposed receiver always outperforms state-of-the-art receiver schemes based on EGC and MMSE criterion exploiting the same degree of channel knowledge.

    Khlifi, Abdelhakim; 10.5121/ijwmn.2011.3511

    2011-01-01

    The main purpose of this paper is to study the performance of two linear channel estimators for LTE Downlink systems, the Least Square Error (LSE) and the Linear Minimum Mean Square Error (LMMSE). As LTE is a MIMO-OFDM based system, a cyclic prefix is inserted at the beginning of each transmitted OFDM symbol in order to completely suppress both inter-carrier interference (ICI) and inter-symbol interference (ISI). Usually, the cyclic prefix is equal to or longer than the channel length but in some cases and because of some unforeseen channel behaviour, the cyclic prefix can be shorter. Therefore, we propose to study the performance of the two linear estimators under the effect of the channel length. Computer simulations show that, in the case where the cyclic prefix is equal to or longer than the channel length,LMMSE performs better than LSE but at the cost of computational complexity.In the other case, LMMSE continue to improve its performance only for low SNR values but it degrades for high SNR values in whi...

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was to compare different statistical methods for the estimation of daily and 305-day lactation milk, fat and protein yields of Holstein and Simmental cattle breeds using an alternative milk recording scheme. Data included 6,824 individual test-day milk yield records collected according to the A4 milk recording method on 668 cows reared on 15 family farms. Daily milk, fat and protein yields were estimated using several statistical methods with regard to breed. The 305-day lactation yields were calculated from estimated daily yields using the Test Interval Method. The correlation between estimated and true yields, as well as the mean difference among estimated and true yield were used as the evaluation criteria for estimation methods. The linear regression of daily to partial milk, fat and protein yields while taking into account the interval between successive milkings was shown to be the most accurate model for estimating daily values, either from morning or evening records. The simple doubling of morning or evening records overestimated and underestimated the daily yields, respectively. When 305-day lactation milk, fat and protein yields were compared no difference between evaluated methods were found. Also, a separate estimation of daily and 305-day lactation yields according to breeds did not result in increased estimation accuracy.

    Full Text Available For high data rate communication with the required Quality of Service (QoS in 3G and 4G systems, Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM is proposed, which is capable to resist the channel impairments caused by high mobility conditions, by dividing the frequency-selective fading channel into narrowband flat fading channels. In this paper two time-domain channel estimation techniques, Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT and Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT, are compared based on the time-domain channel impulse response (CIR energy characteristics and they have less complexity and efficient performance than Linear Minimum Mean Square Error (LMMSE and Least Square Error (LSE. The effect of power limitation in terms of SNR and the number of multipaths for a wireless channel is determined to compare these transform approaches. Two well known performance criteria: Mean Square Error (MSE and Symbol Error Rate (SER are used for comparison by using Monte Carlo Simulations for Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK modulation.

    In this paper, we study relay selection in decode-and-forward wireless energy harvesting cooperative networks. In contrast to conventional cooperative networks, the relays harvest energy from the source’s radio-frequency radiation and then use that energy to forward the source information. Considering power splitting receiver architecture used at relays to harvest energy, we are concerned with the performance of two popular relay selection schemes, namely, partial relay selection (PRS) scheme and optimal relay selection (ORS) scheme. In particular, we analyze the system performance in terms of outage probability (OP) over independent and non-identical (i.n.i.d.) Rayleigh fading channels. We derive the closed-form approximations for the system outage probabilities of both schemes and validate the analysis by the Monte-Carlo simulation. The numerical results provide comprehensive performance comparison between the PRS and ORS schemes and reveal the effect of wireless energy harvesting on the outage performances of both schemes. Additionally, we also show the advantages and drawbacks of the wireless energy harvesting cooperative networks and compare to the conventional cooperative networks. PMID:26927119

    In this paper, application of Sequential Quasi Monte Carlo (SQMC) to blind channel and symbol joint estimation in cooperative Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) system is proposed, which does not need to transmit training symbol and can save the power and channel bandwidth. Additionally, an improved version of SQMC algorithm by taking advantage of current received signal is discussed. Simulation results show that the SQMC method outperforms the Sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) methods, and the incorporation of current received signal improves the performance of the SQMC obviously.

    In this paper, we propose an efficient optimal joint channel estimation and data detection algorithm for massive MIMO wireless systems. Our algorithm is optimal in terms of the generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT). For massive MIMO systems, we show that the expected complexity of our algorithm grows polynomially in the channel coherence time. Simulation results demonstrate significant performance gains of our algorithm compared with suboptimal non-coherent detection algorithms. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first algorithm which efficiently achieves GLRT-optimal non-coherent detections for massive MIMO systems with general constellations.

    2010-08-01

    We present a two-stage scheme integrating voxel reconstruction and human motion tacking. By combining voxel reconstruction with human motion tracking interactively, our method can work in a cluttered background where perfect foreground silhouettes are hardly available. For each frame, a silhouette-based 3D volume reconstruction method and hierarchical tracking algorithm are applied in two stages. In the first stage, coarse reconstruction and tracking results are obtained, and then the refinement for reconstruction is applied in the second stage. The experimental results demonstrate our approach is promising. Although our method focuses on the problem of human body voxel reconstruction and motion tracking in this paper, our scheme can be used to reconstruct voxel data and infer the pose of many specified rigid and articulated objects.

    2011-01-01

    We are concerned with the convergence of spectral method for the numerical solution of the initial-boundary value problem associated to the Korteweg-de Vries-Kawahara equation (in short Kawahara equation), which is a transport equation perturbed by dispersive terms of 3rd and 5th order. This equation appears in several fluid dynamics problems. It describes the evolution of small but finite amplitude long waves in various problems in fluid dynamics. These equations are discretized in space by the standard Fourier- Galerkin spectral method and in time by the explicit leap-frog scheme. For the resulting fully discrete, conditionally stable scheme we prove an L2-error bound of spectral accuracy in space and of second-order accuracy in time.

    Based on the calculation results of pair correlation energy contributions of the various electron pairs in Na2 and H2NNH2 systems and the application of the scaling ionic partition scheme for symmetrical A2 type systems,the total correlation energies of Na2 and H2NNH2 have been reproduced by using this simple scheme.The two results show that the absolute deviations are within an acceptable range of error,however,in this way,more than 90% of computational work can be saved.The most attractive result in present paper is that,in these two molecules the coefficients c1 and c2 in the estimation equation can be obtained by the proportion of correlation energy of A-to that of A+ singlet system.Therefore,it is believed that the proposed ionic partition scheme for symmetrical A2 molecules would be very useful to estimate the correlation energies of large symmetrical molecules.

  3. Improved Performances in Subsonic Flows of an SPH Scheme with Gradients Estimated Using an Integral Approach

    Valdarnini, R.

    2016-11-01

    In this paper, we present results from a series of hydrodynamical tests aimed at validating the performance of a smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) formulation in which gradients are derived from an integral approach. We specifically investigate the code behavior with subsonic flows, where it is well known that zeroth-order inconsistencies present in standard SPH make it particularly problematic to correctly model the fluid dynamics. In particular, we consider the Gresho-Chan vortex problem, the growth of Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities, the statistics of driven subsonic turbulence and the cold Keplerian disk problem. We compare simulation results for the different tests with those obtained, for the same initial conditions, using standard SPH. We also compare the results with the corresponding ones obtained previously with other numerical methods, such as codes based on a moving-mesh scheme or Godunov-type Lagrangian meshless methods. We quantify code performances by introducing error norms and spectral properties of the particle distribution, in a way similar to what was done in other works. We find that the new SPH formulation exhibits strongly reduced gradient errors and outperforms standard SPH in all of the tests considered. In fact, in terms of accuracy, we find good agreement between the simulation results of the new scheme and those produced using other recently proposed numerical schemes. These findings suggest that the proposed method can be successfully applied for many astrophysical problems in which the presence of subsonic flows previously limited the use of SPH, with the new scheme now being competitive in these regimes with other numerical methods.

    2002-05-01

    Full Text Available Sophisticated signal processing techniques have to be developed for capacity enhancement of future wireless communication systems. In recent years, space-time coding is proposed to provide significant capacity gains over the traditional communication systems in fading wireless channels. Space-time codes are obtained by combining channel coding, modulation, transmit diversity, and optional receive diversity in order to provide diversity at the receiver and coding gain without sacrificing the bandwidth. In this paper, we consider the problem of blind estimation of space-time coded signals along with the channel parameters. Both conditional and unconditional maximum likelihood approaches are developed and iterative solutions are proposed. The conditional maximum likelihood algorithm is based on iterative least squares with projection whereas the unconditional maximum likelihood approach is developed by means of finite state Markov process modelling. The performance analysis issues of the proposed methods are studied. Finally, some simulation results are presented.

    Acoustic-electric channels can be used to send data through metallic barriers, enabling communications where electromagnetic signals are ineffective. This paper considers an acoustic-electric channel that is formed by mounting piezoelectric transducers on metallic barriers that are separated by a thin water layer. The transducers are coupled to the barriers using epoxy and the barriers are positioned to axially-align the PZTs, maximizing energy transfer efficiency. The electrical signals are converted by the transmitting transducers into acoustic waves, which propagate through the elastic walls and water medium to the receiving transducers. The reverberation of the acoustic signals in these channels can produce multipath distortion with a significant delay spread that introduces inter-symbol interference (ISI) into the received signal. While the multipath effects can be severe, the channel does not change rapidly which makes equalization easier. Here we implement a 16-QAM system on this channel, including a method for obtaining accurate carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimates in the presence of the quasi-static multipath propagation. A raised-power approach is considered but found to suffer from excessive data noise resulting from the ISI. An alternative approach that utilizes a pilot tone burst at the start of a data packet is used for CFO estimation and found to be effective. The autocorrelation method is used to estimate the frequency of the received burst. A real-time prototype of the 16 QAM system that uses a Texas Instruments MSP430 microcontroller-based transmitter and a personal computer-based receiver is presented along with performance results.

  7. Probabilistic approach to estimating the effects of channel reaches on flood frequencies

    Science.gov (United States)

    Guo, Yiping; Hansen, David; Li, Chuan

    2009-08-01

    A host of physical parameters and characteristics of catchments and channel reaches are normally needed in watershed planning and stormwater management studies. Some of these are also design variables, such as channel cross-section size, shape, roughness, and (to a lesser extent) bed slope. Conventional channel routing techniques employ continuity and some form of the momentum equation to determine the downstream impacts of individual flood events. With the introduction of the concept of storage-induced delay time, a probabilistic approach is developed wherein the role of a given channel reach on the frequency distribution of floods from the catchment upstream can be directly determined. The approach uses the same kinds of channel-reach parameters as are typically used by many conventional flood routing algorithms. Its physically based nature makes it suitable for watershed planning and stormwater management studies wherein little or no flow data are available for parameter estimation or flow frequency analysis. The validity of this probabilistic approach is demonstrated by comparing its outcomes with the results of a suite of conventional continuous simulations using rainfall data from Halifax, Canada.

    Filter⁃bank multicarrier (FBMC) with offset quadrature amplitude modulation (OQAM) is a candidate waveform for future wireless communications due to its advantages over orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. However, because of or⁃thogonality in real field and the presence of imaginary intrinsic interference, channel estimation in FBMC is not as straightforward as OFDM systems especially in multiple antenna scenarios. In this paper, we propose a channel estimation method which employs intrinsic interference cancellation at the transmitter side. The simulation results show that this method has less pilot overhead, less peak to average power ratio (PAPR), better bit error rate (BER), and better mean square error (MSE) performance compared to the well⁃known intrinsic approximation methods (IAM).

    Full Text Available Based on the factor graph framework, we derived a Modified Nonparametric Message Passing Algorithm (MNMPA for soft iterative channel estimation in a Low Density Parity-Check (LDPC coded Bit-Interleaved Coded Modulation (BICM system. The algorithm combines ideas from Particle Filtering (PF with popular factor graph techniques. A Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC move step is added after typical sequential Important Sampling (SIS -resampling to prevent particle impoverishment and to improve channel estimation precision. To reduce complexity, a new max-sum rule for updating particle based messages is reformulated and two proper update schedules are designed. Simulation results illustrate the effectiveness of MNMPA and its comparison with other sum-product algorithms in a Gaussian or non-Gaussian noise environment. We also studied the effect of the particle number, pilot symbol spacing and different schedules on BER performance.

    Multichannel synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is a significant breakthrough to the inherent limitation between high-resolution and wide-swath (HRWS) faced with conventional SAR. Error estimation and unambiguous reconstruction are two crucial techniques for obtaining high-quality imagery. This paper demonstrates the experimental results of the two techniques for Chinese first dualchannel spaceborne SAR imaging. The model of Chinese Gaofen-3 dual-channel mode is established and the mechanism of channel mismatches is first discussed. Particularly, we propose a digital beamforming (DBF) process composed of the subspace-based error estimation algorithm and the reconstruction algorithm before imaging. The results exhibit the effective suppression of azimuth ambiguities with the proposed DBF process, and indicate the feasibility of this technique for future HRWS SAR systems.

  16. Methods for accurate estimation of net discharge in a tidal channel

    Simpson, M.R.; Bland, R.

    2000-01-01

    Accurate estimates of net residual discharge in tidally affected rivers and estuaries are possible because of recently developed ultrasonic discharge measurement techniques. Previous discharge estimates using conventional mechanical current meters and methods based on stage/discharge relations or water slope measurements often yielded errors that were as great as or greater than the computed residual discharge. Ultrasonic measurement methods consist of: 1) the use of ultrasonic instruments for the measurement of a representative 'index' velocity used for in situ estimation of mean water velocity and 2) the use of the acoustic Doppler current discharge measurement system to calibrate the index velocity measurement data. Methods used to calibrate (rate) the index velocity to the channel velocity measured using the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler are the most critical factors affecting the accuracy of net discharge estimation. The index velocity first must be related to mean channel velocity and then used to calculate instantaneous channel discharge. Finally, discharge is low-pass filtered to remove the effects of the tides. An ultrasonic velocity meter discharge-measurement site in a tidally affected region of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Rivers was used to study the accuracy of the index velocity calibration procedure. Calibration data consisting of ultrasonic velocity meter index velocity and concurrent acoustic Doppler discharge measurement data were collected during three time periods. Two sets of data were collected during a spring tide (monthly maximum tidal current) and one of data collected during a neap tide (monthly minimum tidal current). The relative magnitude of instrumental errors, acoustic Doppler discharge measurement errors, and calibration errors were evaluated. Calibration error was found to be the most significant source of error in estimating net discharge. Using a comprehensive calibration method, net discharge estimates developed from the three

    Current meter, temperature and wind observations from the 1984 MMS experiment are used to estimate the mass and heat budgets in the Santa Barbara Channel. The mass transports estimated at the western, eastern and southern boundaries of the channel are characterized by fluctuations whose energy is concentrated around three different periods: 5, 14 and 2.8 days respectively. These three transports fluctuate along with the dominant EOF modes obtained at those 3 entrances respectively. The mean transport passing through the channel from east to west is about 0.28 Sv. There are two frequency bands where winds and mass transports are coherent: 2.5-3.0 and 4.7-5.2 day bands. Winds on the northern shelf lead the transports in both bands by about 1.0 day. At the western half of the channel there is a recirculating (counterclockwise) mean transport of about 0.30 Sv. The time dependent part of the recirculating transport is coherent with the wind in the 4.7-5.2 day band where it also shows an absolute maximum of variance. The recirculating transport lags the local downwelling-favorable winds by about 1.5 day and seems to be the channel response to wind relaxations with respect to its most persistent upwelling-favorable state. The main mean balance in the channel-integrated heat equation is between the heat transport passing through the western mouth, which cools off the channel, and the heat transport caused by the mass transport (the transport heat flux), which warms up the channel. This latter transport results from the advection of the temperature difference between the channel boundaries (mainly east and west) by the mass transport. There are no two terms that dominate the heat equation for the time dependent heat transports, but it can be simplified by balancing the along channel heat divergence (heat transport passing through the mouth plus transport heat flux), the vertical heat flux and the local change of heat. A clear thermal-wind balance at the eastern and western

    2014-05-06

    Option prices in exponential Lévy models solve certain partial integro-differential equations. This work focuses on developing novel, computable error approximations for a finite difference scheme that is suitable for solving such PIDEs. The scheme was introduced in (Cont and Voltchkova, SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 43(4):1596-1626, 2005). The main results of this work are new estimates of the dominating error terms, namely the time and space discretisation errors. In addition, the leading order terms of the error estimates are determined in a form that is more amenable to computations. The payoff is only assumed to satisfy an exponential growth condition, it is not assumed to be Lipschitz continuous as in previous works. If the underlying Lévy process has infinite jump activity, then the jumps smaller than some (Formula presented.) are approximated by diffusion. The resulting diffusion approximation error is also estimated, with leading order term in computable form, as well as the dependence of the time and space discretisation errors on this approximation. Consequently, it is possible to determine how to jointly choose the space and time grid sizes and the cut off parameter (Formula presented.). © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.

    2009-08-01

    A novel methodology for simultaneous discharge and channel roughness estimation is developed and applied to data sets available at three experimental sites. The methodology is based on the synchronous measurement of water level data in two river sections far some kilometers from each other, as well as on the use of a diffusive flow routing solver and does not require any direct velocity measurement. The methodology is first analyzed for the simplest case of a channel with a large slope, where the kinematic assumption holds. A sensitivity and a model error analysis are carried out in this hypothesis in order to show the stability of the results with respect to the error in the input parameters in the case of homogeneous roughness and to analyze the effect of unknown roughness heterogeneity on the estimated discharges. The methodology is then extended to the more general case of channels with mild slope and validated using field data previously collected in three Italian rivers: the Arno (in Tuscany), the Tiber (in Latium) and the Vallo di Diana, a small tributary of the Tanagro river (in Southern Italy). The performance of the proposed algorithm has been investigated according to three performance criteria estimating the quality of the match between the measured and the computed stage and discharge hydrographs. Results of the field tests can be considered good, despite the uncertainties of the field data and of the measured values.

    Weighted interframe averaging (WIFA)-based channel estimation (CE) is presented for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing passive optical network (OFDM-PON), in which the CE results of the adjacent frames are directly averaged to increase the estimation accuracy. The effectiveness of WIFA combined with conventional least square, intrasymbol frequency-domain averaging, and minimum mean square error, respectively, is demonstrated through 26.7-km standard single-mode fiber transmission. The experimental results show that the WIFA method with low complexity can significantly enhance transmission performance of OFDM-PON.

    Forcing by atmospheric aerosols remains a large source of uncertainty in assessing human influences on the climate. Although global models have moved toward including more detailed representations of aerosol populations, aerosol microphysical schemes have been evaluated against benchmark models in only limited cases. Here we introduce a new framework for simulating atmospheric aerosols based on the Quadrature Method of Moments. This new aerosol model has been designed to reproduce key features of benchmark populations simulated by the particle-resolved model PartMC-MOSAIC, while tracking as little information about aerosol distributions as is necessary. The quadrature-based model simulates the aerosol evolution using a small number of weighted particles and is, therefore, decided as a reduced particle-based model. By applying principles of maximum entropy, the quadrature-based model efficiently reproduces distributions with respect to key aerosol properties, such as critical supersaturation for cloud condensation nuclei activation and optical cross sections, with high accuracy. In addition to providing an optimized aerosol model, the present study also describes how multi-scale modeling can be used as a tool for development of advanced aerosol microphysical schemes.

The multi-antenna transmitter exploited beam-former to send signal with artificial noise which was orthogonal with authorized channel characteristics. It used interleaving LDPC to reduce the security gap between authorized channel and eavesdropping channel. Then found the minimum secrecy outage probability with authorized channel SNR constraint, and archived the optimal power allocation for physical layer secure transmission. So the authorized channel could keep low BER with high SNR, while the eavesdropping channel could only have high BER with low SNR. Simulation results show that, the proposed method can realize lower secrecy outage probability with authorized channel SNR constraint.

    Full Text Available In this study, Particle Swarm Optimization is applied for the estimation of the channel state transition probabilities. Unlike most other studies, where the channel state transition probabilities are assumed to be known and/or constant, in this study, these values are realistically considered to be time-varying parameters, which are unknown to the secondary users of the cognitive radio systems. The results of this study demonstrate the following: without any a priori information about the channel characteristics, even in a very transient environment, it is quite possible to achieve reasonable estimates of channel state transition probabilities with a practical and simple implementation.

    Two-dimensional (2-D) formulae for estimating discharge capacity of straight compound channels are reviewed and applied to overbank flows in straight fixed and mobile bed compound channels. The predictive capabilities of these formulae were evaluated using experimental data obtained from the small-scale University of Birmingham channel. Full details of these data and key references may be found at the following www.flowdata.bham.ac.uk (university website). 2-D formulae generally account for bed shear, lateral shear, and secondary flow effects via 3 coefficients f, and . In this paper, the secondary flow term() used within the 2-D methods analysed here is ignored in all applications. Two different 2-D formulae almost give practically the same results for the same data when the secondary flow term is ignored. For overall test cases, the value of dimensionless eddy viscosity used in 2-D formulae was kept at 0·13 as recommended for open channels. 2-D formulae gave good predictions for most of the data sets studied in comparison with the traditional 1-D methods, namely the Single Channel Method (SCM) and the Divided Channel Method (DCM). The accuracy of predictions of 2-D formulae was increased by calibrating of value where the calibration was needed. For overall data, the average errors for each method were Lateral Division Methods (LDMs), with value of 0·13, 2·8%, DCM 14·3% and SCM $−26·8$%. The average error was 0·5% for LDMs with the calibrated values of .

    2016-01-01

    In this paper we present results from a series of hydrodynamical tests aimed at validating the performance of a smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) formulation in which gradients are derived from an integral approach. We specifically investigate the code behavior with subsonic flows, where it is well known that zeroth-order inconsistencies present in standard SPH make it particularly problematic to correctly model the fluid dynamics. In particular we consider the Gresho-Chan vortex problem, the growth of Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilities, the statistics of driven subsonic turbulence and the cold Keplerian disc problem. We compare simulation results for the different tests with those obtained, for the same initial conditions, using standard SPH. We also compare the results with the corresponding ones obtained previously with other numerical methods, such as codes based on a moving-mesh scheme or Godunov-type Lagrangian meshless methods. We quantify code performances by introducing error norms and spectral prope...

    Full Text Available Climatic parameters such as temperature, rainfall, wind speed, relative humidity and sunshine hours were used to assess reference evapotranspiration and potential crop evapotranspiration of selected crops. The Penmann Monteith method for calculation of Reference Evapotranspiration, which has been incorporated in CROPWAT software, was used. Test crops included rice, tomato and pepper, which were part of the major crops cultivated in the Botanga irrigation scheme. Research findings indicated that temperature (r = 0.653 played a crucial role in assessing reference evapotranspiration and potential evapotranspiration. Temperature was lowest during the months from July to September due to lower solar radiation and higher rainfall. The potential crop evapotranspiration of rice, tomato and pepper were 697, 533 and 427 mm/season respectively. Rice growers will require more water for irrigation to ensure higher production due to its high evapotranspiration rate. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5755/j01.erem.70.4.7752

    Full Text Available In wireless communication, future demands must be met using more data throughput wireless technologies. Since bandwidth is limited and user demand continues to grow. This problem could be solved by WiMAX technology based on IEEE 802.16e specifications, which provides high data services on mobile environment. So, to support high data rate traffic, the error correction could be enhanced by incorporating a better channel coding technique in mobile WiMAX physical layer. Further, coding technique is used for providing reliable information through the transmission channel to the user. It is used to reduce the level of noise and interferences in electronic medium. The amount of error detection and correction required and its effectiveness depends on the signal to noise ratio. The advantages of Forward Error Correction (FEC are that a back-channel is not required, or that retransmission of data can often be avoided, at the cost of higher bandwidth requirements on average. In this paper, the performance of mobile WiMAX system with convolutional turbo coding is determined and analyzed for various modulation schemes under different channels. The BER performance of mobile WiMAX system using convolutional turbo Coding is determined and compared with the existing concatenated Reed Solomon(RS coding in the presence of AWGN and Rayleigh Channel. From the simulation results, it is verified that convolutional turbo coding provides better BER performance than concatenated RS coding

    Yin, Jingjing; Samawi, Hani; Linder, Daniel

    2016-07-01

    A diagnostic cut-off point of a biomarker measurement is needed for classifying a random subject to be either diseased or healthy. However, the cut-off point is usually unknown and needs to be estimated by some optimization criteria. One important criterion is the Youden index, which has been widely adopted in practice. The Youden index, which is defined as the maximum of (sensitivity + specificity -1), directly measures the largest total diagnostic accuracy a biomarker can achieve. Therefore, it is desirable to estimate the optimal cut-off point associated with the Youden index. Sometimes, taking the actual measurements of a biomarker is very difficult and expensive, while ranking them without the actual measurement can be relatively easy. In such cases, ranked set sampling can give more precise estimation than simple random sampling, as ranked set samples are more likely to span the full range of the population. In this study, kernel density estimation is utilized to numerically solve for an estimate of the optimal cut-off point. The asymptotic distributions of the kernel estimators based on two sampling schemes are derived analytically and we prove that the estimators based on ranked set sampling are relatively more efficient than that of simple random sampling and both estimators are asymptotically unbiased. Furthermore, the asymptotic confidence intervals are derived. Intensive simulations are carried out to compare the proposed method using ranked set sampling with simple random sampling, with the proposed method outperforming simple random sampling in all cases. A real data set is analyzed for illustrating the proposed method.

    Accurate and reliable estimation of biomass in tropical forest has been a challenging task because a large proportion of forests are difficult to access or inaccessible. So, for effective implementation of REDD+ and fair benefit sharing, the proper designing of field plot sampling schemes plays a significant role in achieving robust biomass estimation. The existing forest inventory protocols using various field plot sampling schemes, including FAO's regular grid concept of sampling for land cover inventory at national level, are time and human resource intensive. Wall to wall LiDAR scanning is, however, a better approach to assess biomass with high precision and spatial resolution even though this approach suffers from high costs. Considering the above, in this study a sampling design based on a LiDAR strips sampling scheme has been devised for Ghanaian forests to support field plot sampling. Using Top-of-Atmosphere (TOA) reflectance value of satellite data, Land Use classification was carried out in accordance with IPCC definitions and the resulting classes were further stratified, incorporating existing GIS data of ecological zones in the study area. Employing this result, LiDAR sampling strips were allocated using systematic sampling techniques. The resulting LiDAR strips represented all forest categories, as well as other Land Use classes, with their distribution adequately representing the areal share of each category. In this way, out of at total area of 15,153km2 of the study area, LiDAR scanning was required for only 770 km2 (sampling intensity being 5.1%). We conclude that this systematic LiDAR sampling design is likely to adequately cover variation in above-ground biomass densities and serve as sufficient a-priori data, together with the Land Use classification produced, for designing efficient field plot sampling over the seven ecological zones.

    Full Text Available We give a hybrid two-stage design which can be useful to estimate the reliability of a parallel-series and/or by duality a series-parallel system. When the components' reliabilities are unknown, one can estimate them by sample means of Bernoulli observations. Let T be the total number of observations allowed for the system. When T is fixed, we show that the variance of the system reliability estimate can be lowered by allocation of the sample size T at components' level. This leads to a discrete optimization problem which can be solved sequentially, assuming T is large enough. First-order asymptotic optimality is proved systematically and validated T Monte Carlo simulation.

    Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have become more and more diversified and are today able to also support high data rate applications, such as multimedia. In this case, per-packet channel handshaking/switching may result in inducing additional overheads, such as energy consumption, delays and, therefore, data loss. One of the solutions is to perform stream-based channel allocation where channel handshaking is performed once before transmitting the whole data stream. Deciding stream-based channel allocation is more critical in case of multichannel WSNs where channels of different quality/stability are available and the wish for high performance requires sensor nodes to switch to the best among the available channels. In this work, we will focus on devising mechanisms that perform channel quality/stability estimation in order to improve the accommodation of stream-based communication in multichannel wireless sensor networks. For performing channel quality assessment, we have formulated a composite metric, which we call channel rank measurement (CRM), that can demarcate channels into good, intermediate and bad quality on the basis of the standard deviation of the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) and the average of the link quality indicator (LQI) of the received packets. CRM is then used to generate a data set for training a supervised machine learning-based algorithm (which we call Normal Equation based Channel quality prediction (NEC) algorithm) in such a way that it may perform instantaneous channel rank estimation of any channel. Subsequently, two robust extensions of the NEC algorithm are proposed (which we call Normal Equation based Weighted Moving Average Channel quality prediction (NEWMAC) algorithm and Normal Equation based Aggregate Maturity Criteria with Beta Tracking based Channel weight prediction (NEAMCBTC) algorithm), that can perform channel quality estimation on the basis of both current and past values of channel rank estimation.

Subsequently, two robust extensions of the NEC algorithm are proposed (which we call Normal Equation based Weighted Moving Average Channel quality prediction (NEWMAC) algorithm and Normal Equation based Aggregate Maturity Criteria with Beta Tracking based Channel weight prediction (NEAMCBTC) algorithm), that can perform channel quality estimation on the basis of both current and past values of channel rank estimation. In the end

    Full Text Available In a WLAN, when a great many nodes coexist, the network may readily be congested, thus causing packets dropping and network performance degradation. To solve this issue, a lot of schemes have been proposed. However, most of the previous works attempt to avoid the possible channel congestion by controlling the packets generation rate and/or transmitting power of nodes, while the effects of Clear Channel Assessment (CCA threshold are not well examined. In our paper, a Joint CCA threshold and contending window control algorithm (JCCA is proposed to avoid channel congestion or reduce the congestion probability of broadcasting in an IEEE 802.11e network. Both the network conditions and the priorities of messages are taken into account to improve the broadcasting performance in our paper. According to the simulation results, it can be concluded that our scheme can significantly increase the network throughput as well as packets delivery ratio and reduce the packet transmission delay compared to the IEEE 802.11e and Adaptive Carrier Sensing-Based MAC Designs (ACSBM protocol.

    2001-01-01

    The blood velocity can be estimated by cross-correlation of received RE signals, but only the velocity component along the beam direction is found. A previous paper showed that the complete velocity vector can be estimated, if received signals are focused along lines parallel to the direction...... simulations with Field II. A 64-elements, 5 MHz linear array was used. A parabolic velocity profile with a peak velocity of 0.5 m/s was considered for different angles between the flow and the ultrasound beam and for different emit foci. At 60 degrees the relative standard deviation was 0.58 % for a transmit...

  19. Adaptive Channel Estimation based on Soft Information Processing in Broadband Spatial Multiplexing Receivers

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-11-01

    Full Text Available In this paper we present a novel approach in Multiple-Input Multiple Output (MIMO Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM channel estimation technique based on a Decision Directed Recursive Least Squares (RLS algorithm in which no pilot symbols need to be integrated in the data after a short initial preamble. The novelty and key concept of the proposed technique is the block-wise causal and anti-causal RLS processing that yields two independent processings of RLS along with the associated decisions. Due to the usage of low density parity check (LDPC channel code, the receiver operates with soft information, which enables us to introduce a new modification of the Turbo principle as well as a simple information combining approach based on approximated aposteriori log-likelihood ratios (LLRs. Although the computational complexity is increased by both of our approaches, the latter is relatively less complex than the former. Simulation results show that these implementations outperform the simple RLS-DDCE algorithm and yield lower bit error rates (BER and more accurate channel estimates.

  20. Widely Linear versus Conventional Subspace-Based Estimation of SIMO Flat-Fading Channels: Mean Squared Error Analysis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Abdallah, Saeed; Psaromiligkos, Ioannis N.

    2012-03-01

    We analyze the mean-squared error (MSE) performance of widely linear (WL) and conventional subspace-based channel estimation for single-input multiple-output (SIMO) flat-fading channels employing binary phase-shift-keying (BPSK) modulation when the covariance matrix is estimated using a finite number of samples. The conventional estimator suffers from a phase ambiguity that reduces to a sign ambiguity for the WL estimator. We derive closed-form expressions for the MSE of the two estimators under four different ambiguity resolution scenarios. The first scenario is optimal resolution, which minimizes the Euclidean distance between the channel estimate and the actual channel. The second scenario assumes that a randomly chosen coefficient of the actual channel is known and the third assumes that the one with the largest magnitude is known. The fourth scenario is the more realistic case where pilot symbols are used to resolve the ambiguities. Our work demonstrates that there is a strong relationship between the accuracy of ambiguity resolution and the relative performance of WL and conventional subspace-based estimators, and shows that the less information available about the actual channel for ambiguity resolution, or the lower the accuracy of this information, the higher the performance gap in favor of the WL estimator.

  1. Precision of channel catfish catch estimates using hoop nets in larger Oklahoma reservoirs

    Hoop nets are rapidly becoming the preferred gear type used to sample channel catfish Ictalurus punctatus, and many managers have reported that hoop nets effectively sample channel catfish in small impoundments (catfish and the time involved in using 16 tandem hoop net series in larger impoundments (>200 ha). Hoop net series were fished once, set for 3 d; then we used Monte Carlo bootstrapping techniques that allowed us to estimate the number of net series required to achieve two levels of precision (relative standard errors [RSEs] of 15 and 25) at two levels of confidence (80% and 95%). Sixteen hoop net series were effective at obtaining an RSE of 25 with 80% and 95% confidence in all but one reservoir. Achieving an RSE of 15 was often less effective and required 18-96 hoop net series given the desired level of confidence. We estimated that an hour was needed, on average, to deploy and retrieve three hoop net series, which meant that 16 hoop net series per reservoir could be "set" and "retrieved" within a day, respectively. The estimated number of net series to achieve an RSE of 25 or 15 was positively associated with the coefficient of variation (CV) of the sample but not with reservoir surface area or relative abundance. Our results suggest that hoop nets are capable of providing reasonably precise estimates of channel catfish relative abundance and that the relationship with the CV of the sample reported herein can be used to determine the sampling effort for a desired level of precision.

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Traditional virtual screening method pays more attention on predicted binding affinity between drug molecule and target related to a certain disease instead of phenotypic data of drug molecule against disease system, as is often less effective on discovery of the drug which is used to treat many types of complex diseases. Virtual screening against a complex disease by general network estimation has become feasible with the development of network biology and system biology. More effective methods of computational estimation for the whole efficacy of a compound in a complex disease system are needed, given the distinct weightiness of the different target in a biological process and the standpoint that partial inhibition of several targets can be more efficient than the complete inhibition of a single target. METHODOLOGY: We developed a novel approach by integrating the affinity predictions from multi-target docking studies with biological network efficiency analysis to estimate the anticoagulant activities of compounds. From results of network efficiency calculation for human clotting cascade, factor Xa and thrombin were identified as the two most fragile enzymes, while the catalytic reaction mediated by complex IXa:VIIIa and the formation of the complex VIIIa:IXa were recognized as the two most fragile biological matter in the human clotting cascade system. Furthermore, the method which combined network efficiency with molecular docking scores was applied to estimate the anticoagulant activities of a serial of argatroban intermediates and eight natural products respectively. The better correlation (r = 0.671 between the experimental data and the decrease of the network deficiency suggests that the approach could be a promising computational systems biology tool to aid identification of anticoagulant activities of compounds in drug discovery. CONCLUSIONS: This article proposes a network-based multi-target computational estimation

  4. Modeling and Performance Analysis of Route-Over and Mesh-Under Routing Schemes in 6LoWPAN under Error-Prone Channel Condition

    Tsung-Han Lee

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available 6LoWPAN technology has attracted extensive attention recently. It is because 6LoWPAN is one of Internet of Things standard and it adapts to IPv6 protocol stack over low-rate wireless personal area network, such as IEEE 802.15.4. One view is that IP architecture is not suitable for low-rate wireless personal area network. It is a challenge to implement the IPv6 protocol stack into IEEE 802.15.4 devices due to that the size of IPv6 packet is much larger than the maximum packet size of IEEE 802.15.4 in data link layer. In order to solve this problem, 6LoWPAN provides header compression to reduce the transmission overhead for IP packets. In addition, two selected routing schemes, mesh-under and route-over routing schemes, are also proposed in 6LoWPAN to forward IP fragmentations under IEEE 802.15.4 radio link. The distinction is based on which layer of the 6LoWPAN protocol stack is in charge of routing decisions. In route-over routing scheme, the routing distinction is taken at the network layer and, in mesh-under, is taken by the adaptation layer. Thus, the goal of this research is to understand the performance of two routing schemes in 6LoWPAN under error-prone channel condition.

  5. Underwater acoustic channel estimation using multiple sources and receivers in shallow waters at very-high frequencies

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kaddouri, Samar

    The underwater channel poses numerous challenges for acoustic communication. Acoustic waves suffer long propagation delay, multipath, fading, and potentially high spatial and temporal variability. In addition, there is no typical underwater acoustic channel; every body of water exhibits quantifiably different properties. Underwater acoustic modems are traditionally operated at low frequencies. However, the use of broadband, high frequency communication is a good alternative because of the lower background noise compared to low-frequencies, considerably larger bandwidth and better source transducer efficiency. One of the biggest problems in the underwater acoustic communications at high frequencies is time-selective fading, resulting in the Doppler spread. While many Doppler detection, estimation and compensation techniques can be found in literature, the applications are limited to systems operating at low frequencies contained within frequencies ranging from a few hundred Hertz to around 30 kHz. This dissertation proposes two robust channel estimation techniques for simultaneous transmissions using multiple sources and multiple receivers (MIMO) that closely follows the rapidly time-varying nature of the underwater channel. The first method is a trended least square (LS) estimation that combines the traditional LS method with an empirical modal decomposition (EMD) based trend extraction algorithm. This method allows separating the slow fading modes in the MIMO channels from the fast-fading ones and thus achieves a close tracking of the channel impulse response time fluctuations. This dissertation also outlines a time-varying underwater channel estimation method based on the channel sparsity characteristic. The sparsity of the underwater communication channel is exploited by using the MIMO P-iterative greedy orthogonal matching pursuit (MIMO-OMP) algorithm for the channel estimation. Both techniques are demonstrated in a fully controlled environment, using simulated

    Full Text Available To estimate the population mean with imputation i.e. the technique of substitutingmissing data, there are a number of techniques available in literature like Ratio method ofimputation, Compromised method of imputation, Mean method of imputation, Ahmed method ofimputation, F-T method of imputation, and so on. If population mean of auxiliary information isunknown then these methods are not useful and the two-phase sampling is used to obtain thepopulation mean. This paper presents some imputation methods of for missing values in twophasesampling. Two different sampling designs in two-phase sampling are compared underimputed data. The bias and m.s.e of suggested estimators are derived in the form of populationparameters using the concept of large sample approximation. Numerical study is performed overtwo populations using the expressions of bias and m.s.e and efficiency compared with Ahmedestimators.

    Full Text Available Different statistical models were compared to estimate daily milk yield from morning or evening milking test results. The experiment was conducted on 14 family farms with 325 recorded cows. The amount of explained variance was higher for models including the effects of partial milk yield, the interval between successive milking, the interaction between partial milk yield and the milking interval and the farm (R2 = 0.976 for AM, R2 = 0.956 for PM than for models including partial milk yield effect only (R2 = 0.957 for AM, R2 = 0.937 for PM. Estimates of daily milk yield from linear models were more accurate than those obtained by doubling single milking weights. The results show that more complex model gives the best fit to the data. Differences between models according to determination and correlation coefficient were minor. Further investigations on larger sets of data are needed to draw more general conclusion.

  8. Offset-Free Model Predictive Control of Open Water Channel Based on Moving Horizon Estimation

    Ekin Aydin, Boran; Rutten, Martine

    2016-04-01

    Model predictive control (MPC) is a powerful control option which is increasingly used by operational water managers for managing water systems. The explicit consideration of constraints and multi-objective management are important features of MPC. However, due to the water loss in open water systems by seepage, leakage and evaporation a mismatch between the model and the real system will be created. These mismatch affects the performance of MPC and creates an offset from the reference set point of the water level. We present model predictive control based on moving horizon estimation (MHE-MPC) to achieve offset free control of water level for open water canals. MHE-MPC uses the past predictions of the model and the past measurements of the system to estimate unknown disturbances and the offset in the controlled water level is systematically removed. We numerically tested MHE-MPC on an accurate hydro-dynamic model of the laboratory canal UPC-PAC located in Barcelona. In addition, we also used well known disturbance modeling offset free control scheme for the same test case. Simulation experiments on a single canal reach show that MHE-MPC outperforms disturbance modeling offset free control scheme.

  9. PAPR Reduction Approach Based on Channel Estimation Pilots for Next Generations Broadcasting Systems

    Anh-Tai Ho

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available A novel peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR reduction technique for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM systems is addressed. Instead of using dedicated pilots for PAPR reduction as with tone reservation (TR method selected by the DVB-T2 standard, we propose to use existing pilots used for channel estimation. In this way, we avoid the use of reserved tone pilots and then improve the spectral efficiency of the system. In order to allow their recovery at the receiver, these pilots have to follow particular laws which permit their blind detection and avoid sending side information. In this work, we propose and investigate a multiplicative law operating in discrete frequency domain. The operation in discrete domain aims at reducing degradation due to detection and estimation error in continuous domain. Simulation results are performed using the new DVB-T2 standard parameters. Its performance is compared to the DVB-T2 PAPR gradient algorithm and to the second-order cone programming (SOCP competitive technique proposed in the literature. We show that the proposed technique is efficient in terms of PAPR reduction value and of spectral efficiency while the channel estimation performance is maintained.

    Seepage flux from ephemeral streams can be an important component of the water balance in arid and semiarid regions. An emerging technique for quantifying this flux involves the measurement and simulation of a flood wave as it moves along an initially dry channel. This study investigates the usefulness of including surface water and groundwater data to improve model calibration when using this technique. We trialed this approach using a controlled flow event along a 1387 m reach of artificial stream channel. Observations were then simulated using a numerical model that combines the diffusion-wave approximation of the Saint-Vénant equations for streamflow routing, with Philip's infiltration equation and the groundwater flow equation. Model estimates of seepage flux for the upstream segments of the study reach, where streambed hydraulic conductivities were approximately 101 m d-1, were on the order of 10-4 m3 d-1 m-2. In the downstream segments, streambed hydraulic conductivities were generally much lower but highly variable (˜10-3 to 10-7 m d-1). A Latin Hypercube Monte Carlo sensitivity analysis showed that the flood front timing, surface water stage, groundwater heads, and the predicted streamflow seepage were most influenced by specific yield. Furthermore, inclusion of groundwater data resulted in a higher estimate of total seepage estimates than if the flood front timing were used alone.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, a configurable superimposed training (ST/data-dependent ST (DDST transmitter and architecture based on array processors (APs for DDST channel estimation are presented. Both architectures, designed under full-hardware paradigm, were described using Verilog HDL, targeted in Xilinx Virtex-5 and they were compared with existent approaches. The synthesis results showed a FPGA slice consumption of 1% for the transmitter and 3% for the estimator with 160 and 115 MHz operating frequencies, respectively. The signal-to-quantization-noise ratio (SQNR performance of the transmitter is about 82 dB to support 4/16/64-QAM modulation. A Monte Carlo simulation demonstrates that the mean square error (MSE of the channel estimator implemented in hardware is practically the same as the one obtained with the floating-point golden model. The high performance and reduced hardware of the proposed architectures lead to the conclusion that the DDST concept can be applied in current communications standards.

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available A cognitive radio system needs accurate knowledge of the radio spectrum it operates in. Blind modulation recognition techniques have been proposed to discriminate between single-carrier and multicarrier modulations and to estimate their parameters. Some powerful techniques use autocorrelation- and cyclic autocorrelation-based features of the transmitted signal applying to OFDM signals using a Cyclic Prefix time guard interval (CP-OFDM. In this paper, we propose a blind parameter estimation technique based on a power autocorrelation feature applying to OFDM signals using a Zero Padding time guard interval (ZP-OFDM which in particular excludes the use of the autocorrelation- and cyclic autocorrelation-based techniques. The proposed technique leads to an efficient estimation of the symbol duration and zero padding duration in frequency selective channels, and is insensitive to receiver phase and frequency offsets. Simulation results are given for WiMAX and WiMedia signals using realistic Stanford University Interim (SUI and Ultra-Wideband (UWB IEEE 802.15.4a channel models, respectively.

    2013-01-01

    Regression equations were developed for estimating bankfull geometry—width, mean depth, cross-sectional area—and discharge for streams in Massachusetts. The equations provide water-resource and conservation managers with methods for estimating bankfull characteristics at specific stream sites in Massachusetts. This information can be used for the adminstration of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Rivers Protection Act of 1996, which establishes a protected riverfront area extending from the mean annual high-water line corresponding to the elevation of bankfull discharge along each side of a perennial stream. Additionally, information on bankfull channel geometry and discharge are important to Federal, State, and local government agencies and private organizations involved in stream assessment and restoration projects. Regression equations are based on data from stream surveys at 33 sites (32 streamgages and 1 crest-stage gage operated by the U.S. Geological Survey) in and near Massachusetts. Drainage areas of the 33 sites ranged from 0.60 to 329 square miles (mi2). At 27 of the 33 sites, field data were collected and analyses were done to determine bankfull channel geometry and discharge as part of the present study. For 6 of the 33 sites, data on bankfull channel geometry and discharge were compiled from other studies done by the U.S. Geological Survey, Natural Resources Conservation Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. Similar techniques were used for field data collection and analysis for bankfull channel geometry and discharge at all 33 sites. Recurrence intervals of the bankfull discharge, which represent the frequency with which a stream fills its channel, averaged 1.53 years (median value 1.34 years) at the 33 sites. Simple regression equations were developed for bankfull width, mean depth, cross-sectional area, and discharge using drainage area, which is the most significant explanatory

    2011-01-01

    This paper provides analytical performance of the low-complexity family of affine projection algorithms on the estimation of multipath Rayleigh fading channels in the presence of carrier frequency offsets (CFO) and random channel variations. Our analysis is based on the calculation of the error correlation matrix of the estimation, the mean-square weight error (MSWE) and the mean-square estimation error (MSE) parameters. The analysis does not use strong assumptions like small or large step-size, and explicit closed-form expressions for the MSE of estimation are obtained only from common hypotheses in wireless communication context. In this paper, the optimum stepsize parameters minimizing the MSE of estimation are analytically derived without any simplified assumptions. For the sake of comparison with other analytical approaches, we also investigate the performance of the introduced algorithms by the energy conservation relation. Likewise for exact performance analysis, we evaluate all the moment terms that a...

    This article proposes a simple pilot-aided channel estimation method based on correlation in time domain for multiple-input and multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems. Pilot symbols in all transmit antennas are generated from different circular shifting of a certain sequence. Through once correlation, the receiver can obtain time-domain pulse responses for channel fading from all transmit antennas to a certain receive antenna, from which channel estimation in frequency domain can be obtained. Beyond 3G time-division duplex (B3G-TDD) uplink is introduced, and the channel estimation method is used in it. Theoretical analysis and simulation are both carried out. Mean square error (MSB) performance shows that the method can exhibit precise estimation. Complexity analysis proves it requires very low complexity. System simulation result shows that it guarantees the performance of B3G-TDD uplink very well.

    A new on-line blind equalization approach is proposed. The approach combines over-sampling technique with independent component analysis (ICA) neural network and can give equalized output on-line employing only the received signal. Based on the fourth-order cumulants and the characteristic of the linear system, the parameters of original channel are also estimated using evolutionary computation (EC). Compared to traditional equalization methods, the proposed algorithm is of simple architecture, does not need learning sequences apart from the observation, and can achieve both blind equalization and system identification. Computer simulations show good performance.

    A blind channel estimation algorithm based on the subspace method for single-input multiple-output (SIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems is proposed in this letter. With the aid of a repetition index, the conventional algorithm is a special case of our algorithm. Compared with related studies, the proposed algorithm reduces the computational complexity of the SVD operation and is suitable for cyclic-prefix-free systems. In particular, the necessary condition of the proposed signal matrix to be full rank can be satisfied with fewer OFDM blocks. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm outperforms conventional methods in normalized mean-square error.

    Full Text Available We consider the problem of optimization of the training sequence length when a turbo-detector composed of a maximum a posteriori (MAP equalizer and a MAP decoder is used. At each iteration of the receiver, the channel is estimated using the hard decisions on the transmitted symbols at the output of the decoder. The optimal length of the training sequence is found by maximizing an effective signal-to-noise ratio (SNR taking into account the data throughput loss due to the use of pilot symbols.

  1. A CODING SCHEME USING GLOBAL MOTION ESTIMATION FOR AVS P-FRAME

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    Block matching has been used for motion estimation and motion compensation in the Audio and Video Standard (AVS) for years. While having an acceptable performance in describing motion between frames, it requires quite a few bits to represent the motion vectors. In certain circumstances, the use of global motion estimation and compensation would perform equally well or even better than the block matching in terms of motion accuracy, while it results in the coding of global motion model parameters. In this letter, we modify an AVS coder by adding (1) six global motion model parameters to the frame header, and (2) mode selection among INTRA, SKIP, INTER-16×16,INTER-16×8, INTER-8×16, INTER-8×8, and Global Motion Compensation (GMC) modes by Lagrange optimal rate-distortion criteria. Simulation results demonstrate that over 0.1dB improvement in PSNR is obtained compared to the AVS coder for an average coded P-frame with the same bitrate.

    Network reliability is the probability that a dynamical system composed of discrete elements interacting on a network will be found in a configuration that satisfies a particular property. We introduce a reliability property, Ising feasibility, for which the network reliability is the Ising model's partition function. As shown by Moore and Shannon, the network reliability can be separated into two factors: structural, solely determined by the network topology, and dynamical, determined by the underlying dynamics. In this case, the structural factor is known as the joint density of states. Using methods developed to approximate the structural factor for other reliability properties, we simulate the joint density of states, yielding an approximation for the partition function. Based on a detailed examination of why naïve Monte Carlo sampling gives a poor approximation, we introduce a parallel scheme for estimating the joint density of states using a Markov-chain Monte Carlo method with a spin-exchange random walk. This parallel scheme makes simulating the Ising model in the presence of an external field practical on small computer clusters for networks with arbitrary topology with ˜106 energy levels and more than 10308 microstates.

    The study considers the problem of simulation based time variant reliability analysis of nonlinear randomly excited dynamical systems. Attention is focused on importance sampling strategies based on the application of Girsanov's transformation method. Controls which minimize the distance function, as in the first order reliability method (FORM), are shown to minimize a bound on the sampling variance of the estimator for the probability of failure. Two schemes based on the application of calculus of variations for selecting control signals are proposed: the first obtains the control force as the solution of a two-point nonlinear boundary value problem, and, the second explores the application of the Volterra series in characterizing the controls. The relative merits of these schemes, vis-à-vis the method based on ideas from the FORM, are discussed. Illustrative examples, involving archetypal single degree of freedom (dof) nonlinear oscillators, and a multi-degree of freedom nonlinear dynamical system, are presented. The credentials of the proposed procedures are established by comparing the solutions with pertinent results from direct Monte Carlo simulations. - Highlights: • The distance minimizing control forces minimize a bound on the sampling variance. • Establishing Girsanov controls via solution of a two-point boundary value problem. • Girsanov controls via Volterra's series representation for the transfer functions.

    We modeled the geometrical roughening of bedding-parallel, mainly layer-dominated stylolites in order to understand their structural evolution, to present an advanced classification of stylolite shapes and to relate this classification to chemical compaction and permeability variations at stylolites. Stylolites are rough dissolution seams that develop in sedimentary basins during chemical compaction. In the Zechstein 2 carbonate units, an important lean gas reservoir in the southern Permian Zechstein basin in Germany, stylolites influence local fluid flow, mineral replacement reactions and hence the permeability of the reservoir. Our simulations demonstrate that layer-dominated stylolites can grow in three distinct stages: an initial slow nucleation phase, a fast layer-pinning phase and a final freezing phase if the layer is completely dissolved during growth. Dissolution of the pinning layer and thus destruction of the stylolite's compaction tracking capabilities is a function of the background noise in the rock and the dissolution rate of the layer itself. Low background noise needs a slower dissolving layer for pinning to be successful but produces flatter teeth than higher background noise. We present an advanced classification based on our simulations and separate stylolites into four classes: (1) rectangular layer type, (2) seismogram pinning type, (3) suture/sharp peak type and (4) simple wave-like type. Rectangular layer type stylolites are the most appropriate for chemical compaction estimates because they grow linearly and record most of the actual compaction (up to 40 mm in the Zechstein example). Seismogram pinning type stylolites also provide good tracking capabilities, with the largest teeth tracking most of the compaction. Suture/sharp peak type stylolites grow in a non-linear fashion and thus do not record most of the actual compaction. However, when a non-linear growth law is used, the compaction estimates are similar to those making use of the

    2015-01-01

    We introduce a highly-parallelizable architecture for estimating parameters of compact binary coalescence using gravitational-wave data and waveform models. Using a spherical harmonic mode decomposition, the waveform is expressed as a sum over modes that depend on the intrinsic parameters (e.g. masses) with coefficients that depend on the observer dependent extrinsic parameters (e.g. distance, sky position). The data is then prefiltered against those modes, at fixed intrinsic parameters, enabling efficiently evaluation of the likelihood for generic source positions and orientations, independent of waveform length or generation time. We efficiently parallelize our intrinsic space calculation by integrating over all extrinsic parameters using a Monte Carlo integration strategy. Since the waveform generation and prefiltering happens only once, the cost of integration dominates the procedure. Also, we operate hierarchically, using information from existing gravitational-wave searches to identify the regions of pa...

    The aim of this study was to estimate a radiobiological set of parameters from the available clinical data on glioblastoma (GB). A number of clinical trial outcomes from patients affected by GB and treated with surgery and adjuvant radiochemotherapy were analyzed to estimate a set of radiobiological parameters for a tumor control probability (TCP) model. The analytical/graphical method employed to fit the clinical data allowed us to estimate the intrinsic tumor radiosensitivity (α), repair capability (b), and repopulation doubling time (T{sub d}) in a first phase, and subsequently the number of clonogens (N) and kick-off time for accelerated proliferation (T{sub k}). The results were used to formulate a hypothesis for a scheduleexpected to significantly improve local control. The 95 % confidence intervals (CI{sub 95} {sub %}) of all parameters are also discussed. The pooled analysis employed to estimate the parameters summarizes the data of 559 patients, while the studies selected to verify the results summarize data of 104 patients. The best estimates and the CI{sub 95} {sub %} are α = 0.12 Gy{sup -1} (0.10-0.14), b = 0.015 Gy{sup -2} (0.013-0.020), α/b = 8 Gy (5.0-10.8), T{sub d} = 15.4 days (13.2-19.5), N = 1 . 10{sup 4} (1.2 . 10{sup 3} - 1 . 10{sup 5}), and T{sub k} = 37 days (29-46). The dose required to offset the repopulation occurring after 1 day (D{sub prolif}) and starting after T{sub k} was estimated as 0.30 Gy/day (0.22-0.39). The analysis confirms a high value for the α/b ratio. Moreover, a high intrinsic radiosensitivity together with a long kick-off time for accelerated repopulation and moderate repopulation kinetics were found. The results indicate a substantial independence of the duration of the overall treatment and an improvement in the treatment effectiveness by increasing the total dose without increasing the dose fraction.

    The errors in radar quantitative precipitation estimations consist not only of systematic biases caused by random noises but also spatially nonuniform biases in radar rainfall at individual rain-gauge stations.In this study,a real-time adjustment to the radar reflectivity-rainfall rates (Z R) relationship scheme and the gauge-corrected,radar-based,estimation scheme with inverse distance weighting interpolation was developed.Based on the characteristics of the two schemes,the two-step correction technique of radar quantitative precipitation estimation is proposed.To minimize the errors between radar quantitative precipitation estimations and rain gauge observations,a real-time adjustnent to the Z-R relationship scheme is used to remove systematic bias on the time-domain.The gauge-corrected,radar-based,estination scheme is then used to eliminate non-uniform errors in space.Based on radar data and rain gauge observations near the Huaihe River,the two-step correction technique was evaluated using two heavy-precipitation events.The results show that the proposed scheme improved not only in the underestination of rainfall but also reduced the root-mean-square error and the mean relative error of radar-rain gauge pairs.

    In this paper,we consider an amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative communication system when the channel state information (CSI) used in relay selection differs from that during data transmission,i.e.,the CSI used in relay selection is outdated.The selected relay may not be actually the best for data transmission and the outage performance of the cooperative system will deteriorate.To improve its performance,we propose a relay selection strategy based on maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation,where relay is selected based on predicted signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).To reduce the computation complexity,we approximate the a posteriori probability density of SNR and obtain a closed-form predicted SNR,and a relay selection strategy based on the approximate MAP estimation (RS-AMAP) is proposed.The simulation results show that this approximation leads to trivial performance loss from the perspective of outage probability.Compared with relay selection strategies given in the literature,the outage probability is reduced largely through RS-AMAP for medium-to-large transmitting powers and medium-to-high channel correlation coefficients.

    In this paper, an Interacting multiple model (IMM) adaptive estimation approach is incorporated to design an optimal adaptive control law for stabilizing an Unmanned vehicle. Due to variations of the forward velocity of the Unmanned vehicle, its aerodynamic derivatives are constantly changing. In order to stabilize the unmanned vehicle and achieve the control objectives for in-flight conditions, one seeks for an adaptive control strategy that can adjust itself to varying flight conditions. In this context, a bank of linear models is used to describe the vehicle dynamics in different operating modes. Each operating mode represents a particular dynamic with a different forward velocity. These models are then used within an IMM filter containing a bank of Kalman filters (KF) in a parallel operating mechanism. To regulate and stabilize the vehicle, a Linear quadratic regulator (LQR) law is designed and implemented for each mode. The IMM structure determines the particular mode based on the stored models and in-flight input-output measurements. The LQR controller also provides a set of controllers; each corresponds to a particular flight mode and minimizes the tracking error. Finally, the ultimate control law is obtained as a weighted summation of all individual controllers whereas weights are obtained using mode probabilities of each operating mode.

    Full Text Available Long-Term Evolution (LTE is the next generation of current mobile telecommunication networks. LTE has a new flat radio-network architecture and significant increase in spectrum efficiency. In this paper, main focus on throughput performance analysis of robust MIMO channel estimators for Downlink Long Term Evolution-Advance (DL LTE-A-4G system using three Artificial Neural Networks: Feed-forward neural network (FFNN, Cascade-forward neural network (CFNN and Time-Delay neural network (TDNN are adopted to train the constructed neural networks’ models separately using Back-Propagation Algorithm. The methods use the information received by the received reference symbols to estimate the total frequency response of the channel in two important phases. In the first phase, the proposed ANN based method learns to adapt to the channel variations, and in the second phase, it estimates the MIMO channel matrix and try to improve throughput of LTE. The performance of the estimation methods is evaluated by simulations in Vienna LTE-A DL Link Level Simulator. Performance of the proposed channel estimator, Time-Delay neural network (TDNN is compared with traditional Least Square (LS algorithm and ANN based other estimators for Closed Loop Spatial Multiplexing (CLSM - Single User Multi-input Multi-output (MIMO-2×2 and 4×4 in terms of throughput.

    Full Text Available In impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB systems where the channel lengths are on the order of a few hundred taps, conventional use of frequency-domain (FD processing for channel estimation and equalization may not be feasible because the need to add a cyclic prefix (CP to each block causes a significant reduction in the spectral efficiency. On the other hand, using no or short CP causes the interblock interference (IBI and thus degradation in the receiver performance. Therefore, in order to utilize FD receiver processing UWB systems without a significant loss in the spectral efficiency and the performance, IBI cancellation mechanisms are needed in both the channel estimation and equalization operations. For this reason, in this paper, we consider the joint FD channel estimation and equalization for IR-UWB systems with short cyclic prefix (CP and propose a novel iterative receiver employing soft IBI estimation and cancellation within both its FD channel estimator and FD equalizer components. We show by simulation results that the proposed FD receiver attains performances close to that of the full CP case in both line-of-sight (LOS and non-line-of-sight (NLOS UWB channels after only a few iterations.

    We study the L1-error estimates for the upwind scheme to the linear advection equations with a piecewise constant coefficients modeling linear waves crossing interfaces.Here the interface condition is immersed into the upwind scheme.We prove that,for initial data with a bounded variation,the numerical solution of the immersed interface upwind scheme converges in L1-norm to the differential equation with the corresponding interface condition.We derive the one-halfth order L1-error bounds with explicit coefficients following a technique used in [25].We also use some inequalities on binomial coefficients proved in a consecutive paper[32].

    2017-04-01

    This work presents method for design of precision positioning scheme for mode division multiplexing (MDM) system channels at the end of link few-mode optical fiber with enlarged core diameter. Proposed solution is based on combination of well known overlap integral method and earlier on developed Gaussian approximation modification generalized for analysis of silica weakly guiding optical fibers with one outer solid cladding and arbitrary axially-symmetric refractive index profile. The last one provides a passage to analytical expressions for any order mode coupling coefficients under taking into account set precision radial misalignment. By using presented method we computed launching parameters of 5-mode MDM multiplexer channels to the end of few-mode optical fiber samples with enlarged core diameter up to 42 μm and reduced differential mode delay provided by specially designed graded refractive index profile. According to computation results, it is able to transmit the almost total one MDM channel mode power to only one optical fiber particular mode with the same azimuthal order by corresponding combination between mode field diameter and precision radial misalignment.

    This paper considers finite-time distributed state estimation for discrete-time nonlinear systems over sensor networks. The Round-Robin protocol is introduced to overcome the channel capacity constraint among sensor nodes, and the multiplicative noise is employed to model the channel fading. In order to improve the performance of the estimator under the situation, where the transmission resources are limited, fading channels with different stochastic properties are used in each round by allocating the resources. Sufficient conditions of the average stochastic finite-time boundedness and the average stochastic finite-time stability for the estimation error system are derived on the basis of the periodic system analysis method and Lyapunov approach, respectively. According to the linear matrix inequality approach, the estimator gains are designed. Finally, the effectiveness of the developed results are illustrated by a numerical example.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available A new technique that combines adaptive power allocation and iterative detection based on singular value decomposition (SVD is introduced for the modified Turbo-BLAST system with imperfect channel state information (I-CSI. At the transmitter, in order to maximize the capacity performance, the MIMO channel is decomposed into several parallel eigen subchannels by SVD, and then proper power based on the water-filling principle is allocated to every subchannel subject to the total transmit power constraint. At the receiver, the modified MMSE detector taking the CSI imperfection into account is used to remove the coantenna interference, and then the turbo idea is employed for iterative detection to lower the system BER. As a result, the BER performance is effectively enhanced. Numerical results show that the introduced SVD-aided adaptive power allocation method is valid to improve not only the capacity but also the BER performance in the presence of channel state information imperfection, while the iterative detector can further lower the BER results.

    2013-01-01

    Regression equations were developed for estimating bankfull geometry—width, mean depth, cross-sectional area—and discharge for streams in Massachusetts. The equations provide water-resource and conservation managers with methods for estimating bankfull characteristics at specific stream sites in Massachusetts. This information can be used for the adminstration of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Rivers Protection Act of 1996, which establishes a protected riverfront area extending from the mean annual high-water line corresponding to the elevation of bankfull discharge along each side of a perennial stream. Additionally, information on bankfull channel geometry and discharge are important to Federal, State, and local government agencies and private organizations involved in stream assessment and restoration projects. Regression equations are based on data from stream surveys at 33 sites (32 streamgages and 1 crest-stage gage operated by the U.S. Geological Survey) in and near Massachusetts. Drainage areas of the 33 sites ranged from 0.60 to 329 square miles (mi2). At 27 of the 33 sites, field data were collected and analyses were done to determine bankfull channel geometry and discharge as part of the present study. For 6 of the 33 sites, data on bankfull channel geometry and discharge were compiled from other studies done by the U.S. Geological Survey, Natural Resources Conservation Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation. Similar techniques were used for field data collection and analysis for bankfull channel geometry and discharge at all 33 sites. Recurrence intervals of the bankfull discharge, which represent the frequency with which a stream fills its channel, averaged 1.53 years (median value 1.34 years) at the 33 sites. Simple regression equations were developed for bankfull width, mean depth, cross-sectional area, and discharge using drainage area, which is the most significant explanatory

    The decision to use either daily-averaged or sub-daily streamflow records has the potential to impact the calculation of sediment transport metrics and stream channel design. Using bedload and suspended load sediment transport measurements collected at 138 sites across the United States, we calculated the effective discharge, sediment yield, and half-load discharge using sediment rating curves over long time periods (median record length = 24 years) with both daily-averaged and sub-daily streamflow records. A comparison of sediment transport metrics calculated with both daily-average and sub-daily stream flow data at each site showed that daily-averaged flow data do not adequately represent the magnitude of high stream flows at hydrologically flashy sites. Daily-average stream flow data cause an underestimation of sediment transport and sediment yield (including the half-load discharge) at flashy sites. The degree of underestimation was correlated with the level of flashiness and the exponent of the sediment rating curve. No consistent relationship between the use of either daily-average or sub-daily streamflow data and the resultant effective discharge was found. When used in channel design, computed sediment transport metrics may have errors due to flow data resolution, which can propagate into design slope calculations which, if implemented, could lead to unwanted aggradation or degradation in the design channel. This analysis illustrates the importance of using sub-daily flow data in the calculation of sediment yield in urbanizing or otherwise flashy watersheds. Furthermore, this analysis provides practical charts for estimating and correcting these types of underestimation errors commonly incurred in sediment yield calculations.

  1. Threshold-based detection for amplify-and-forward cooperative communication systems with channel estimation error

    2014-09-01

    Efficient receiver designs for cooperative communication systems are becoming increasingly important. In previous work, cooperative networks communicated with the use of $L$ relays. As the receiver is constrained, it can only process $U$ out of $L$ relays. Channel shortening and reduced-rank techniques were employed to design the preprocessing matrix. In this paper, a receiver structure is proposed which combines the joint iterative optimization (JIO) algorithm and our proposed threshold selection criteria. This receiver structure assists in determining the optimal $U-{opt}$. Furthermore, this receiver provides the freedom to choose $U ≤ U-{opt}$ for each frame depending upon the tolerable difference allowed for mean square error (MSE). Our study and simulation results show that by choosing an appropriate threshold, it is possible to gain in terms of complexity savings without affecting the BER performance of the system. Furthermore, in this paper the effect of channel estimation errors is investigated on the MSE performance of the amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative relaying system.

    A new Turbo iterative receiver structure is proposed for the uplink multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiple access (MIMO-OFDMA) systems. The space-alternating generalized expectation-maximization (SAGE) algorithm is naturally embedded in the framework of iterative receiver to perform synchronization and detection using the Turbo detector outputs. In each iteration, the expectation step intends to remove the multiple access interference (MAI) caused by other asynchronous users, and the maximization step is utilized to estimate the required parameters (i.e., timing offset, carrier frequency offset, channel state information, etc.) sequentially for each user. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can approach the performance of ideal receiver closely, while the processing complexity is rather lower than the conventional detectors.

    We propose a time domain structure of channel estimation for coherent optical communication systems, which employs training sequence based equalizer and is transparent to arbitrary quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) formats. Enabled with this methodology, 1.02 Tb/s polarization division multiplexed 32 QAM Nyquist pulse shaping signal with a net spectral efficiency of 7.46 b/s/Hz is transmitted over standard single-mode fiber link with Erbium-doped fiber amplifier only amplification. After 1190 km transmission, the average bit-error rate is lower than the 20% hard-decision forward error correction threshold of 1.5 × 10(-2). The transmission distance can be extended to 1428 km by employing intra-subchannel nonlinear compensation with the digital back-propagation method.

    Full Text Available Terrestrial ecosystem models commonly represent vegetation in terms of plant functional types (PFTs and use their vegetation attributes in calculations of the energy and water balance as well as to investigate the terrestrial carbon cycle. Sub-grid scale variability of PFTs in these models is represented using different approaches with the "composite" and "mosaic" approaches being the two end-members. The impact of these two approaches on the global carbon balance has been investigated with the Canadian Terrestrial Ecosystem Model (CTEM v 1.2 coupled to the Canadian Land Surface Scheme (CLASS v 3.6. In the composite (single-tile approach, the vegetation attributes of different PFTs present in a grid cell are aggregated and used in calculations to determine the resulting physical environmental conditions (soil moisture, soil temperature, etc. that are common to all PFTs. In the mosaic (multi-tile approach, energy and water balance calculations are performed separately for each PFT tile and each tile's physical land surface environmental conditions evolve independently. Pre-industrial equilibrium CLASS-CTEM simulations yield global totals of vegetation biomass, net primary productivity, and soil carbon that compare reasonably well with observation-based estimates and differ by less than 5% between the mosaic and composite configurations. However, on a regional scale the two approaches can differ by > 30%, especially in areas with high heterogeneity in land cover. Simulations over the historical period (1959–2005 show different responses to evolving climate and carbon dioxide concentrations from the two approaches. The cumulative global terrestrial carbon sink estimated over the 1959–2005 period (excluding land use change (LUC effects differs by around 5% between the two approaches (96.3 and 101.3 Pg, for the mosaic and composite approaches, respectively and compares well with the observation-based estimate of 82.2 ± 35 Pg C over the same

    Compared with traditional wireless communication , although relay nodes in cooperative communication can help to increase the performance of a wireless network,relay nodes may cause the serious competition for wire-less channel accessing ,which makes the channel access problem in cooperative communication challenging .To solve the problem,a novel MAC ( media access control) scheme by concurrently considering RTS/CTS ( Request To Send/Clear To Send) and busy tone is proposed in the paper.In the scheme,three busy tones are proposed to iden-tify the state of channel occupation and solve the hidden terminal and exposed terminal problems in cooperative communication.Based on the busy tone,this paper also proposes a bandwidth efficient relay selection algorithm.The source can choose the best relay in a distributed way by sensing the busy tone .The theory and simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheme can efficiently improve the channel utilization and solve the hidden terminal and exposed terminal problems in cooperative communication .The blocking time ratio of the proposed MAC scheme is less than 10% when the data packet size surpasses 3500B.%与传统无线传输相比,虽然协作中继节点的参与可以大大提高无线网络性能,然而协作中继会带来严重的信道竞争问题,这给协作通信环境中的信道访问控制带来挑战。为了解决这个问题,提出一种RTS/CTS(Request To Send/Clear To Send)与忙音结合的MAC(media access control)信道接入方案。该方案使用3个忙音来标识信道的使用状态,并解决协作通信中的隐藏终端和暴露终端问题。基于忙音信号,还提出了一种带宽节俭的协作节点选择算法。通过侦听忙音信号,源节点可分布式地选择最优的协作节点。理论分析和仿真实验表明所提方案能有效地提高协作通信中的信道利用率,很好地解决了协作通信中的隐藏终端暴露终端问

    2017-06-12

    A new finger replacement technique which is applicable for RAKE receivers in the soft handover region has been proposed and studied under the ideal assumption that the fading is both independent and identically distributed from path to path. To supplement our previous work, we present a general comprehensive framework for the performance assessment of the proposed finger replacement schemes operating over independent but non-identically distributed (i.n.d.) faded paths. To accomplish this object, we derive new closed-form expressions for the target key statistics which are composed of i.n.d. exponential random variables. With these new expressions, the performance analysis of various wireless communication systems over more practical channel environments can be possible.

    A novel architecture of bidirectional gigabit signal transport system over long-haul single-mode fiber (SMF) using wavelength division multiplexed passive optical network technique is proposed and demonstrated. In order to offer multimedia services of high bandwidth, four signals of 5 Gbps data rates are externally modulated and transmitted through four channels over 100-km SMF in uplink and downlink. In our proposed scheme, an excellent bit error rate, good Q-factor and clear eye diagrams are observed for both 100-km uplink and downlink transmission. This architecture has potential to transmit 4×5 Gbps over long-haul fiber backbone and it will be useful in future broadband communications.

    Dao Vallis and appear to be truncated by the channeled plains, indicating that the erosion of Hadriaca Patera preceded erosion on the plains [1]. Data sets and additional information For the eastern-Hellas region a sufficient HRSC coverage exists. In addition, age estimates for the channel floors and the surrounding plains are available [7]. For detailed studies we processed MOC and HIRISE images also. Moreover, a detailed geologic map of the Hellas region has been made [8] which was utilized to constrain the channel boundaries and the main branches. Computations are actually done with MOLA data, but will be further improved by a high resolution mosaic DTM created out of HRSC stereo data of the eastern Hellas area. Water flow experiments within a Mars Simulation Chamber conducted at the Open University London, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (pers. comm.), suggest a complex interaction of phase changes (boiling and freezing) which have to be kept in mind when modeling the discharge of water from the subsurface. Such experiments will be improved in further investigations to give a better input to numerical modeling. Work plan The objective of the ongoing work is to make a quantitative comparison between the amount of water that could be melted by volcano-permafrost interaction and the outflow volume derived from channel and chaotic terrain morphology. The melted water is supposed to be initially stored as ice in a subsurface porous medium, so that the quested volume depends on the pore space and drainage area to be reached by a heat supplier. To find an approach to this problem, we want to reconstruct the outflow event by computing the discharge and sediment transport rate for Dao and Niger Valles under consideration of flow and transport processes in martian channels reviewed by [9]. The theoretical background of this work is used to derive model parameters. Channel width and water depth were obtained using individual MOLA tracks. Together with an

    This paper considers a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) receiver with very low-precision analog-to-digital convertors (ADCs) with the goal of developing massive MIMO antenna systems that require minimal cost and power. Previous studies demonstrated that the training duration should be {\\em relatively long} to obtain acceptable channel state information. To address this requirement, we adopt a joint channel-and-data (JCD) estimation method based on Bayes-optimal inference. This method yields minimal mean square errors with respect to the channels and payload data. We develop a Bayes-optimal JCD estimator using a recent technique based on approximate message passing. We then present an analytical framework to study the theoretical performance of the estimator in the large-system limit. Simulation results confirm our analytical results, which allow the efficient evaluation of the performance of quantized massive MIMO systems and provide insights into effective system design.

    This work addressed the estimate of the directional emissivity in the mid-infrared (MIR) channel around 4.0 microm from MODIS data. A series of bidirectional reflectances in MODIS channel 22 (3.97 mum) were retrieved using the method developed by Tang and Li (Int. J. Remote Sens. 29, 4907, 2008) and then were used to estimate the directional emissivity in this channel with the aid of the BRDF model modified by Jiang and Li (Opt. Express 16, 19310, 2008). To validate the estimated directional emissivity, a cross-comparison of MODIS derived emissivities in channel 22 using the proposed method were performed with those provided by the MODIS land surface temperature/emissivity product MYD11B1 data. The results show that the proposed method for estimating the directional emissivity in MIR channel gives results comparable to those of MYD11B1 product with a Mean Error of -0.007 and a Root Mean Square Error of 0.024.

    This work intercompared two Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) models, the modified Minnaert's model and the RossThick-LiSparse-R model, in the estimation of the directional emissivity in Middle Infra-Red (MIR) channel from the data acquired by the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infra-Red Imager (SEVIRI) onboard the first Meteosat Second Generation (MSG1). The bi-directional reflectances in SEVIRI channel 4 (3.9 microm) were estimated from the combined MIR and Thermal Infra-Red (TIR) data and then were used to estimate the directional emissivity in this channel with aid of the BRDF models. The results show that: (1) Both models can relatively well describe the non-Lambertian reflective behavior of land surfaces in SEVIRI channel 4; (2) The RossThick-LiSparse-R model is better than the modified Minnaert's model in modeling the bi-directional reflectances, and the directional emissivities modeled by the modified Minnaert's model are always lower than the ones obtained by the RossThick-LiSparse-R model with averaged emissivity differences of approximately 0.01 and approximately 0.04 over the vegetated and bare areas, respectively. The use of the RossThick-LiSparse-R model in the estimation of the directional emissivity in MIR channel is recommended.

    Full Text Available A novel hybrid channel estimator is proposed for multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency- division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM system with per-subcarrier transmit antenna selection having optimal power allocation among subcarriers. In practice, antenna selection information is transmitted through a binary symmetric control channel with a crossover probability. Linear minimum mean-square error (LMMSE technique is optimal technique for channel estimation in MIMO-OFDM system. Though LMMSE estimator performs well at low signal to noise ratio (SNR, in the presence of antenna-to-subcarrier-assignment error (ATSA, it introduces irreducible error at high SNR. We have proved that relaxed MMSE (RMMSE estimator overcomes the performance degradation at high SNR. The proposed hybrid estimator combines the benefits of LMMSE at low SNR and RMMSE estimator at high SNR. The vector mean square error (MSE expression is modified as scalar expression so that an optimal power allocation can be performed. The convex optimization problem is formulated and solved to allocate optimal power to subcarriers minimizing the MSE, subject to transmit sum power constraint. Further, an analytical expression for SNR threshold at which the hybrid estimator is to be switched from LMMSE to RMMSE is derived. The simulation results show that the proposed hybrid estimator gives robust performance, irrespective of ATSA error.

    We derive estimates of the Babuska-Brezzi inf-sup constant {beta} for two-dimensional incompressible flow in a periodic channel with one flat boundary and the other given by a periodic, Lipschitz continuous function h. If h is a constant function (so the domain is rectangular), we show that periodicity in one direction but not the other leads to an interesting connection between {beta} and the unitary operator mapping the Fourier sine coefficients of a function to its Fourier cosine coefficients. We exploit this connection to determine the dependence of {beta} on the aspect ratio of the rectangle. We then show how to transfer this result to the case that h is C{sup 1,1} or even C{sup 0,1} by a change of variables. We avoid non-constructive theorems of functional analysis in order to explicitly exhibit the dependence of {beta} on features of the geometry such as the aspect ratio, the maximum slope, and the minimum gap thickness (if h passes near the substrate). We give an example to show that our estimates are optimal in their dependence on the minimum gap thickness in the C{sup 1,1} case, and nearly optimal in the Lipschitz case.

LTE has a ?at radio-network architecture and signi?cant increase in spectrum efficiency, throughput and user capacity. In this paper, performance analysis of robust channel estimators for Downlink Long Term Evolution-Advanced (DL LTE-A system using three Artificial Neural Networks: Feed-forward neural network (FFNN, Cascade-forward neural network (CFNN and Layered Recurrent Neural Network (LRN are trained separately using Back-Propagation Algorithm and also ANN is trained by Genetic Algorithm (GA. The methods use the information got by the received reference symbols to estimate the total frequency response of the channel in two important phases. In the first phase, the proposed ANN based method learns to adapt to the channel variations, and in the second phase it estimates the channel matrix to improve performance of LTE. The performance of the estimation methods is evaluated by simulations in Vienna LTE-A DL Link Level Simulator in MATLAB software. Performance of the proposed channel estimator, ANN trained by Genetic Algorithm (ANN-GA is compared with traditional Least Square (LS algorithm and ANN based other estimator like Feed-forward neural network, Layered Recurrent Neural Network and Cascade-forward neural network for Closed Loop Spatial Multiplexing (CLSM-Single User Multi-input Multi-output (MIMO-2×2 and 4×4 in terms of throughput. Simulation result shows proposed ANN-GA gives better performance than other ANN based estimations methods and LS.

    This paper proposes an algorithm to estimate the channel mismatches in time-interleaved analog-to-digital converter (TIADC) based on fractional delay (FD) and sine curve fitting. Choose one channel as the reference channel and apply FD to the output samples of reference channel to obtain the ideal samples of non-reference channels with no mismatches. Based on least square method, the sine curves are adopted to fit the ideal and the actual samples of non-reference channels, and then the mismatch parameters can be estimated by comparing the ideal sine curves and the actual ones. The principle of this algorithm is simple and easily understood. Moreover, its implementation needs no extra circuits, lowering the hardware cost. Simulation results show that the estimation accuracy of this algorithm can be controlled within 2%. Finally, the practicability of this algorithm is verified by the measurement results of channel mismatch errors of a two-channel TIADC prototype.

    On the basis of the joint estimated 1-h precipitation from Changde, Jingzhou, and Yichang Doppler radars as well as Wuhan digital radar, and the retrieved wind fields from Yichang and Jingzhou Doppler radars, a series of numerical experiments with an advanced regional η-coordinate model (AREM) under different model initial schemes, i.e., Grapes-3DVAR, Barnes objective analysis, and Barnes-3DVAR, are carried out for a torrential rain process occurring along the Yangtze River in the 24-h period from 2000 BT 22 July 2002 to investigate the effects of the Doppler-radar estimated rainfall and retrieved winds on the rainfall forecast. The main results are as follows: (1) The simulations are obviously different under three initial schemes with the same data source (the radiosounding and T213L31 analysis). On the whole,Barnes-3DVAR, which combines the advantages of the Barnes objective analysis and the Grapes-3DVAR method, gives the best simulations: well-simulated rain band and clear mesoscale structures, as well as their location and intensity close to observations. (2) Both Barnes-3DVAR and Grapes-3DVAR schemes are able to assimilate the Doppler-radar estimated rainfall and retrieved winds, but differences in simulation results are very large, with Barnes-3DVAR's simulation much better than Grapes-3DVAR's. (3) Under Grapes3DVAR scheme, the simulation of 24-h rainfall is improved obviously when assimilating the Doppler-radar estimated precipitation into the model in compared with the control experiment; but it becomes a little worse when assimilating the Doppler-radar retrieved winds into the model, and it becomes worse obviously when assimilating the Doppler-radar estimated precipitation as well as retrieved winds into the model. However,the simulation is different under Barnes-3DVAR scheme. The simulation is improved to a certain degree no matter assimilating the estimated precipitation or retrieved winds, or both of them. The result is the best when assimilating both
