Configuration and Control of a Millimeter-Wave Synthetic Aperture Measurement System with Uncertainties

October 25, 2021
Alec J. Weiss, Jeanne Quimby, Rodney Leonhardt, Benjamin Jamroz, Dylan Williams, Kate Remley, Peter Vouras, Atef Elsherbeni
This paper discusses the configuration and control of a new millimeter wave over-the-air measurement system. This system provides unparalleled measurement accuracy, flexibility, and the ability to bound uncertainties on its measurements. The system also

Verification of the Channel Estimator Evaluator

October 25, 2021
Jeanne Quimby, Alec Weiss, Atef Elsherbeni
Fifth-generation millimeter-wave communications rely on channel estimators to correctly predict the frequency response of the propagating channel. Millimeter-wave communication systems have non-ideal hardware performance, such as phase noise, which

Estimating Regions of Wireless Coexistence with Gaussian Process Surrogate Models

October 22, 2021
Jake Rezac, Noel C. Hess, Jason Coder
Simultaneous coexistence of multiple wireless communications systems sharing the same spectrum is critical for the success of modern and future communications. We develop a technique for estimating regions of wireless coexistence (RWC) – the transmission

Wireless Time Sensitive Networking for Industrial Collaborative Robotic Workcells

September 22, 2021
Susruth Sudhakaran, Karl Montgomery, Mohamed Hany, Dave Cavalcanti, Rick Candell
In this paper, we describe a collaborative robotic workcell testbed enabled by Wireless Time Sensitive Networking (WTSN) technologies and discuss deployment, performance measurement and management guidelines challenges. We detail the methodologies for

NetSimulyzer: a 3D Network Simulation Analyzer for ns-3

June 23, 2021
Evan Black, Samantha Gamboa Quintiliani, Richard A. Rouil
The increased complexity of network protocols and scenarios simulated using ns-3 is making the verification of simulation correctness and the analysis of simulation outputs a challenging task. In this paper, we present a new and flexible visualization tool

Temporal Exemplar Channels in High-Multipath Environments

May 24, 2021
Mohamed Hany, Peter Vouras, Rob Jones, Rick Candell, Kate Remley
Industrial wireless plays a crucial role in cyber-physical system (CPS) advances for the future vision of smart manufacturing. However, industrial wireless environments are different from each other and are different from home and office environments

A Collaborative Robot Work-Cell Testbed for Industrial Wireless Communications

May 19, 2021
Yongkang Liu, Mohamed Hany, Karl Montgomery, Rick Candell
We propose a new testbed for assessing the performance of wireless techniques in support of industrial operations. We developed a collaborative robot work-cell manufacturing scenario as the emulated cyber-physical system (CPS) model. Specifically, data

Timing Offset and Timing Stability for Dual-Clock Systems

May 4, 2021
Joshua Kast, Jeanne Quimby, Jake Rezac, Stefania Romisch
In this work, we describe a mathematical framework for evaluating timing offset and timing noise in channel sounders, based on a second-order deterministic model, and a stochastic metric based on the Allan Deviation. Using this framework, we analyze the

Quasi-Deterministic Channel Propagation Model for an Urban Environment at 28 GHz

April 16, 2021
Neeraj Varshney, Jian Wang, Chiehping Lai, Camillo Gentile
We reduced parameters of the Quasi-Deterministic channel propagation model, recently adopted by the IEEE 802.11ay task group for next-generation Wi-Fi at millimeter-wave, from measurements collected in an urban environment with our 28 GHz directional

Characterizing LTE User Equipment Emissions Under Closed-Loop Power Control

April 6, 2021
Jason Coder, Aric Sanders, Michael R. Frey, Adam Wunderlich, Azizollah Kord, Jolene Splett, Lucas N. Koepke, Daniel Kuester, Duncan McGillivray, John M. Ladbury
This report presents a laboratory-based characterization of Long Term Evolution (LTE) User Equipment (UE) emissions under closed-loop power control, building on our prior work (NIST TN 2069), which assessed the impact of a large number of factors affecting

A Preliminary Study on Uncertainty of NB-IoT Measurements in Reverberation Chambers

March 28, 2021
Anouk Hubrechsen, Vincent T. Neylon, Kate Remley, Rob Jones, Rob Horansky, Laurens A. Bronckers
New protocols related to internet-of-things applications may introduce previously unnoticed measurement effects due to the narrowband nature of these protocols. Such technologies also require less loading to meet the coherence bandwidth conditions, which

Evaluation of Timers Related to ProSe-based UE-to-Network Relays

March 24, 2021
Aziza Ben Mosbah, Samantha Gamboa Quintiliani, Richard A. Rouil
User Equipment (UE)-to-Network Relay functionality was introduced in Release 13 of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE) to extend and improve user connectivity using the sidelink (SL) channels. The UE-to-Network Relay

Geometrical-Empirical Channel Propagation Model for Human Presence at 60 GHz

March 2, 2021
Camillo Gentile, Anmol Bhardwaj, Derek Caudill, Peter B. Papazian, Jack Chuang, David Michelson
Previous efforts to develop simulation and/or measurement-based channel propagation models for the effect of human blockage on millimeter-wave communication systems have yielded important results, but lack either accuracy, generality, or simplicity. To
