A Deep Learning Framework for Industrial Wireless Networks

July 25, 2023
Mohamed Hany, Rick Candell
In this report, we introduce a framework to analyze, monitor, and identify the state of industrial wireless networks and their impact on industrial use cases. This framework is based on a deep learning approach for modeling the interactions between the

Wideband Cyclostationary Spectrum Analysis for Smart Factory Wireless Channels

July 5, 2023
Peter Vouras, Mohamed Hany, Rick Candell
Smart and highly automated factories rely on time sensitive networks (TSNs) to coordinate the actions of robots working together to complete a task. The dense layout of metallic objects on the factory floor creates a complex electromagnetic environment

Recommended Practices for Calibrated Millimeter-Wave Modulated-Signal Measurements

June 14, 2023
Paritosh Manurkar, Joshua Kast, Dylan Williams, Rob Horansky, Dan Kuester, Kate Remley
In a millimeter-wave modulated-signal measurement system with several calibration reference planes, we want the measured signal to be a close replica of the ideal signal at the reference plane which connects the near-ideal measured signal to subsequent

Industrial Wireless Cyberphysical Systems Performance Using Deep Learning

June 12, 2023
Mohamed Hany, Rick Candell, Karl Montgomery
Industrial wireless communications networks have a major role in the future industrial cyber-physical systems (CPSs) to have higher flexibility and massive machine connectivity. However, the impact of the industrial wireless on the reliability and latency

Deep Learning for Path Loss Prediction at 7 GHz in Urban Environment

April 3, 2023
Thao T. Nguyen, Nadia Yoza Mitsuishi, Raied Caromi
In the 6 GHz spectrum sharing band, unlicensed devices are managed by automated frequency coordination (AFC) systems to protect incumbent services from interference. Thus, it is important to select accurate propagation models for interference calculation

An Overview of Advances in Signal Processing Techniques for Classical and Quantum Wideband Synthetic Apertures

March 28, 2023
Peter Vouras, Kumar Vijay Mishra, Aly Artusio-Glimpse, Samuel Pinilla, Angeliki Xenaki, David W. Griffith, Karen Egiazarian
Rapid developments in synthetic aperture (SA) systems, which generate a larger aperture with greater angular resolution than is inherently possible from the physical dimensions of a single sensor alone, are leading to novel research avenues in several

Optimized Sparse Sampling Lattices

March 7, 2023
Peter Vouras, Mohamed Hany, Sudantha Perera, Carnot Nogueira, Rick Candell, Kate Remley
Sparse sampling approaches have been widely studied to achieve less complex measurement systems while maintaining detection performance. In this paper, we derive a new gradient implementation of an alternating projections algorithm that determines the

Wideband Synthetic Aperture Test Bed for Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces

March 7, 2023
Peter Vouras, Mohamed Hany, Sudantha Perera, Carnot Nogueira, Rick Candell, Kate Remley
This paper describes a spherical beamforming implementation for wideband synthetic aperture channel sounders that can be used to predict the scattering performance of an Intelligent Reflection Surface (IRS). An IRS creates controlled propagation conditions

A Deep Reinforcement Learning Approach for Automated Chamber Configuration Replicating mmWave Directional Industrial Channel Behavior

January 25, 2023
Mohamed Hany, Sudantha Perera, Carnot Nogueira, Rick Candell, Kate Remley, Matt Simons
Industrial wireless channels have different characteristics than home and office channels due to their reflective nature. Moreover, the millimeter-wave (mmWave) wireless bands can play a big role in improving industrial wireless systems due to their large

IEEE 802.11bf DMG Sensing: Enabling High-Resolution mmWave Wi-Fi Sensing

January 16, 2023
Steve Blandino, Tanguy Ropitault, Anirudha Sahoo, Nada T. Golmie
IEEE 802.11bf amendment is defining the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) sensing procedure, which supports sensing in license-exempt frequency bands below 7 GHz and above 40GHz. In this paper, we examine WLAN sensing in the millimeter wave band, i.e.,

Radio Spectrum Occupancy Measurements Amid COVID-19 Telework and Telehealth

October 14, 2022
Dan Kuester, Xifeng Lu, Dazhen Gu, Azizollah Kord, Jake Rezac, Katie Carson, Marla L. Dowell, Elizabeth Eyeson, Ari Feldman, Keith Forsyth, Vu Le, John Marts, Mike McNulty, Kyle Neubarth, Andre Rosete, Matthew Ryan, Maija Teraslina
During the COVID-19 pandemic, NIST began a targeted campaign of measurements of averaged power and occupancy rate in the radio spectrum. The purpose was to sample real environments to offer timely insights into data infrastructure where it might be

Reference Measurements of Error Vector Magnitude

August 29, 2022
Paritosh Manurkar, Christopher Silva, Joshua Kast, Rob Horansky, Dylan Williams, Kate Remley
We demonstrate the suitability of the IEEE P1765 Reference Waveforms in ascertaining EVM and the associated uncertainties by performing traceable measurements on a calibrated equivalent-time sampling oscilloscope at 44 GHz. With this knowledge, a user can

mmWave Modulated-Signal Measurements for OTA Test

June 24, 2022
Joshua Kast, Paritosh Manurkar, Kate Remley, Rob Horansky, Dylan Williams
We apply a large-signal network analyzer to the measurement of arbitrarily long repetitive millimeter-wave modulated signals transmitted by user equipment generating intermodulation products in an over-the-air test environment. The measurements take

Multi-User MIMO Enabled Virtual Reality in IEEE 802.11ay WLAN

May 16, 2022
Jiayi Zhang, Steve Blandino, Neeraj Varshney, Jian Wang, Camillo Gentile, Nada T. Golmie
Virtual reality (VR) coupled with 360° video has been used in a variety of areas, including gaming, remote learning, and healthcare, among others. The 360° video on which VR applications are based today is mostly low resolution and, in order to improve the
