Research Group Title : MIMO-OFDM Group

Abstract

The group has developed, using the C-language, a simulation test-bed based on the physical layer of IEEE 802.16e (WiMax) standard. The WiMax standard uses MIMO-OFDM and it is generally believed that the future devices will also incorporate this or some variant of this technology. The group has successfully coded, tested and integrated the following modules

  • Channel coding/decoding,
  • Modulation/demodulation,
  • MIMO-OFDM at transmitter/receiver,
  • METRA channel model and
  • Synchronization.

A group of undergraduate students is currently developing an algorithm that will make the multiple antennas adaptive. The goal is to improve the performance of the system and selecting good channels to transmit your information is one way to achieve that.

  • None
    However, Al-Khawarizmi Institute of Computer Science (KICS) at UET is soliciting funding from the ICT-R&D fund for developing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for various modules developed by the group.
