A content adaptive, network aware approach for joint optimization of wireless video transmission is presented in this paper. The joint system optimization approach has been developed in the framework of the IST PHOENIX project (www.istphoenix.org). After a description of the considered cross-layer approach and of the information to be exchanged among the(More)
Future wireless video transmission systems will consider orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) as the basic modulation technique due to its robustness and low complexity implementation in the presence of frequency-selective channels. Recently, adaptive bit loading techniques have been applied to OFDM showing good performance gains in cable(More)
This paper examines the problems of dirty-paper and dirty-tape coding with some additional side information (SI) at the decoder. In particular we focus on the situation in which the decoder SI is a noisy version of the SI at the encoder. We show that noisy SI at the decoder is advantageous for many channels in terms of capacity and, in general, the optimal(More)
M-health is an emerging area of research and one of the key challenges in future research in this area is medical video streaming over wireless channels. Contrasting requirements of almost lossless compression and low available bandwidth have to be tackled in medical quality video streaming in ultrasound and radiology applications. On one side, compression(More)
Wireless telemedicine is currently a reality, requiring also the transmission of medical video sequences over often unreliable links. The contrasting requirements of almost lossless compression and low available bandwidth have to be tackled in this case. On one side compression techniques need to be conservative, in order to avoid removing perceptively(More)
A radar sensor network (RSN) is a wireless network system, typically composed of one transmitting (TX) node and several receiving (RX) nodes, aimed at detecting and tracking an intruder (target) moving within a given surveillance area. In this paper, RSNs based on impulse radio ultra-wideband (UWB) are investigated. In the considered system, at each(More)
A multistatic radar based on ultra-wideband (UWB), also known as a UWB radar sensor network, has been shown to represent a very promising solution to localize an intruder moving within a small surveillance area. In this paper, a tracking algorithm based on low-complexity particle filtering is proposed, specifically tailored to UWB radar sensor networks with(More)
Different design issues and performance aspects of a low-complexity echo canceller for digital on-channel repeaters are described in this paper. Locally generated pulse trains are injected in the repeated signal to estimate the coupling channel between the transmitting and the receiving antennas. In particular, we analyze a low-complexity channel(More)
M-health services are expected to become increasingly relevant in the management of emergency situations, enabling real-time support of remote medical experts. In this context, the transmission of health-related information from an ambulance to a remote hospital is a challenging task, due to the variability and the limitations of the mobile radio link.
