We present a novel decoding scheme for slotted ALOHA which is based on concepts from physical-layer network coding (PNC) and multi-user detection (MUD). In addition to recovering individual user packets from a packet collision as it is usually done with MUD, the receiver applies PNC to decode packet combinations that can be used to retrieve the original(More)
— This paper addresses the problem of TOA estimation for ranging applications in IR-UWB. It considers a low complexity frequency-domain approach for the estimation of the TOA that allows sub-Nyquist sampling rate receivers. Two diversity schemes are investigated in combination with the TOA estimation algorithm and are evaluated over realistic channel(More)
This report describes the modulation and coding schemes for the WINNER II system, considering detailed aspects of channel coding. Two modes for link adaptation are illustrated and a scheme for H-ARQ is defined. Executive Summary The main focus of this document is to capture leading-edge technologies related with Channel Coding, Link Adaptation and H-ARQ(More)
Network coding allows to exploit spatial diversity naturally present in mobile wireless networks and can be seen as an example of cooperative communication at the link layer and above. Such promising technique needs to rely on a suitable physical layer in order to achieve its best performance. In this paper, we present an opportunistic packet scheduling(More)
We present a novel cross layer approach to random access (RA) that combines physical-layer network coding (PLNC) with multiuser detection (MUD). PLNC and MUD are applied jointly at the physical level in order to extract any linear combination of messages experiencing a collision. The set of combinations extracted from a whole frame is then processed by the(More)

— We consider the performance of adaptive coding and modulation (ACM) over a fading channel for the case that the transmitter has only partial channel state information (CSI). We evaluate the degradation due to the partial CSI in terms of additionally required SNR by simulations and an analytical approximation. Then, we propose an ACM scheme with fast(More)
We investigate iterative implementations of linear receivers for spatial diversity channels. This work has been motivated by recent results concerning iterative implementations of linear multiuser receivers, under the assumption of long random sequences. We explore implementation issues for such iterative methods for f inite system dimensions. We consider(More)
