21. Virtual Reality Platform to Study RF Propagation in Body Area Networks
Topic: Wireless
Published: 12/2/2012
Authors: Kamran Sayrafian, John G Hagedorn, Wen-Bin Yang, Judith Ellen Terrill
Abstract: Design of efficient wireless communication protocols for body area networks requires in-depth understanding of the propagation media i.e. the human body. As obtaining large amount of data for many scenarios and use-cases via physical experiment i ...

22. A Low-Complexity Solution to Decode Diversity-Oriented Block Codes in MIMO Systems with Inter-Symbol Interference
Topic: Wireless
Published: 10/1/2012
Authors: Hamid Gharavi, Chong Xu
Abstract: In this paper we firstly propose a block-code based general model to combat the Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI) caused by frequency selective channels in a Multi-Input Multi- Output (MIMO) system and/or by asynchronous cooperative transmissions. The ...

23. Radiation Pattern of an UWB Wearable Antenna: A Preliminary Study
Topic: Wireless
Published: 9/24/2012
Authors: Wen-Bin Yang, Kamran Sayrafian
Abstract: Inhomogeneity of the propagation medium in body area networks could have a great impact on the sensor node‰s antenna characteristics. This in turn could affect the quality of the communication links unless the impact of the human body has been pr ...

24. Battery Discharge Characteristics of Wireless Sensors in Building Applications
Topic: Wireless
Published: 4/11/2012
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Sensor nodes in wireless networks often use batteries as their source of energy, but replacing or recharging exhausted batteries in a deployed network can be difficult and costly. Therefore, prolonging battery life becomes a principal objective ...

25. Radio Frequency Measurements to Support Public Safety Wireless Communications in Large Buildings and Structures
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/13/2011
Authors: William F Young, Catherine A Remley, Christopher L Holloway, Galen H Koepke, Dennis G. Camell, John M Ladbury
Abstract: The public safety community requires dependable wireless communications in buildings that often disrupt the radio frequency propagation due to the construction material, architectural features, or large physical dimensions. Here we introduce measurem ...

26. Ant-Colony Based Near-ML Block Decoder in Asynchronous Cooperative MIMO Systems Using a Linear Dispersion Structure
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/5/2011
Authors: Hamid Gharavi, Chong Xu
Abstract: The linear dispersion structure is employed to accommodate the dynamic topology of cooperative networks, as well as to achieve higher throughput than conventional space-time codes based on orthogonal designs. Asynchronous Cooperative Liner Dispersio ...

27. Pixel Interlacing Based Video Transmission for Low-complexity Intra-frame Error Concealment
Topic: Wireless
Published: 6/1/2011
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: When multi-path fading and interference frequently disrupts a mobile radio communication system, it can seriously undermine its reliability for transmission of compressed video signals. In this paper, we present a pixel interlacing based video transm ...

28. A Joint Vehicle-Vehicle/Vehicle-Roadside Communication Protocol for Highway Traffic Safety
Topic: Wireless
Published: 5/1/2011
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: In this paper, a joint vehicle-vehicle/vehicle-roadside communication protocol is proposed for cooperative collision avoiding in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). In this protocol, emergency warning messages are simultaneously transmitted via Veh ...

29. Performance Measurements and Analysis of Low Data Rate Wireless Communication Under Interference Sources in Buildings
Topic: Wireless
Published: 10/13/2010
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Interference from collocated networks operating over the same frequency range becomes an increasingly severe problem as the number of networks overlapping geographically increases within commercial and residential buildings. This paper aims to highli ...

30. An Experimental Study of Interference Impacts on ZigBee-based Wireless Communications Inside Buildings
Topic: Wireless
Published: 8/7/2010
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: ZigBee is a wireless technology developed as an open global standard to address the unique needs of low-cost, low-power wireless sensor networks. This standard takes full advantages of the IEEE 802.15.4 physical radio specification and operates in un ...
