Transmission over wireless fading channels under quality of service (QoS) constraints is studied when only the receiver has channel side information. Being unaware of the channel conditions, transmitter is assumed to send the information at a fixed rate. Under these assumptions, a two-state (ON-OFF) transmission model is adopted, where information is(More)
—Transmission of information over a discrete-time memoryless Rician fading channel is considered, where neither the receiver nor the transmitter knows the fading coefficients. The spectral-efficiency/bit-energy tradeoff in the low-power regime is examined when the input has limited peakedness. It is shown that if a fourth-moment input constraint is imposed,(More)
— 1 In this paper, pilot-assisted transmission over Gauss-Markov Rayleigh fading channels is considered. A simple scenario, where a single pilot signal is transmitted every T symbols and T − 1 data symbols are transmitted in between the pilots, is studied. First, it is assumed that binary phase-shift keying (BPSK) modulation is employed at the transmitter.(More)
In this paper, cognitive transmission under quality of service (QoS) constraints is studied. In the cognitive radio channel model, it is assumed that the secondary transmitter sends the data at two different average power levels, depending on the activity of the primary users, which is determined by channel sensing performed by the secondary users. A(More)
1 Energy efficiency in fading channels in the presence of Quality of Service (QoS) constraints is studied. Effective capacity, which provides the maximum arrival rate that a wireless channel can sustain while satisfying statistical QoS constraints, is considered. Spectral efficiency–bit energy tradeoff is analyzed in the low-power and wideband regimes by(More)
The performance of multiple-input multiple-output wireless systems is investigated in the presence of statistical queueing constraints. Queuing constraints are imposed as limitations on buffer violation probabilities. The performance under such constraints is captured through the effective capacity formulation. A detailed analysis of the effective capacity(More)
1 In this paper, the capacity and energy efficiency of training-based communication schemes employed for transmission over a-priori unknown Rayleigh block fading channels are studied. In these schemes, periodically transmitted training symbols are used at the receiver to obtain the minimum mean-square-error (MMSE) estimate of the channel fading(More)
We present a system for wide-area multi-object tracking across disjoint camera views. We employ a probabilistic Petri Net-based approach to account for the uncertainties of the vision algorithms (such as unreliable background subtraction, and tracking failure) and to incorporate the available domain knowledge. We combine appearance features of objects as(More)
