Measurements of IP3 and P1dB for Spectrum Monitoring with Software Defined Radios

March 30, 2022
Mike McNulty, Dazhen Gu, Dan Kuester, Payam Nayeri
This paper discusses methodology for characterizing linearity summary parameters of software-defined radio receivers. First, we introduce a highly automated testbed for 1-dB compression point (P1dB) and third-order input intercept point (IIP3). With this

Analyzing 5G NR-U and WiGig Coexistence with Multiple-Beam Directional LBT

February 15, 2022
Yao Ma, Susanna Mosleh, Jason Coder
The mmWave radio frequency (RF) spectrum allocations provide a large bandwidth and an excellent dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) opportunity for emerging 5G New-Radio unlicensed (NR-U) and Wireless Gigabit (WiGig) services. To support constructive DSS, we

Wireless Time Sensitive Networking Impact on an Industrial Collaborative Robotic Workcell

February 15, 2022
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

Admission Control and Scheduling of Isochronous Traffic in IEEE 802.11ad MAC

December 20, 2021
Anirudha Sahoo, Weichao Gao, Tanguy Ropitault, Nada T. Golmie
An upsurge of bandwidth hungry applications such as virtual reality, augmented reality and availability of unlicensed spectrum in the mmWave band at 60 GHz have led to standardization of the next generation WiFi such as IEEE 802.11ad and 802.11ay. Due to

On Convergence of the Upper Bound on the Ratio of Gain to Quality Factor

December 6, 2021
Alex Yuffa, Marc Valdez, Benoit Derat
An antenna's practical far-field distance can be estimated from the upper bound on the ratio of its gain to quality factor. This upper bound is an infinite series that can be truncated based on the desired far-field accuracy. We investigate the convergence

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
