Time delay estimation (TDE) between the signals received by two or more spatially separated microphones can be used as a means for the passive localization of the dominant talker in applications such as audio-conference. However, in a recent study, it has been shown that reverberation can have disastrous eeects on TDE performance. In this paper , we develop(More)
—In this paper, we derive for the first time analytical expressions for the exact Cramér-Rao lower bounds on the variance of unbiased non-data-aided (NDA) signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) estimators of square QAM-modulated signals. The channel is assumed to be constant over the observation interval and the received signal is supposed to be corrupted by additive(More)
— This paper investigates the capacity of generalized-K fading channels. This very general model describes accurately composite multipath/shaodwing fading channels which are widely encountered in real-world environments. We derive closed-form expressions for three adaptive transmission techniques, namely, i) optimal rate adaptation with constant power, ii)(More)
A microphone array can be used for hands-free acquisition of speech under reverberant conditions. This requires knowledge about the desired talker location, which can be obtained by estimating the time delays between the signals received by one or more pairs of spatially separated microphones. However, in a typical audio-conference room, strong(More)
—In this paper, we present a new, computationally efficient simulator for time-varying multi-path (fast fading) vector channels that can be used to evaluate the performance of antenna array wireless receivers at the base station. The development of the simulator is based on the emulation of the spatio-temporal correlation properties of the vector channel.(More)
—This paper presents an analytical framework for performance evaluation of mobile radio systems operating in composite fading/shadowing channels in the presence of co-located co-channel interference. The desired user and the inter-ferers are subject to Nakagami fading superimposed on gamma shadowing. The paper starts by presenting generic closed-form(More)
—Composite multipath fading/shadowing environments are frequently encountered in different realistic scenarios. These channels are generally modeled as a mixture of Nakagami-m multipath fading and log-normal shadowing. The resulting composite probability density function (pdf) is not available in closed form, thereby making the performance evaluation of(More)
