—We consider the diamond network where a source communicates with the destination through N non-interfering half-duplex relays. Deriving a simple approximation to the capacity of the network, we show that simple schedules having exactly two states and avoiding broadcast and multiple access communication can still achieve a significant constant fraction of(More)
—We propose a new formulation of the index coding problem, where instead of demanding a specific message, clients are " pliable " and are happy to receive any one message they do not have. We prove that with this relaxation, although some instances of this problem become simple, in general the problem remains NP-hard. However, we develop heuristic(More)
This work deals with multisensor data fusion to obtain landcover classification. The role of feature-level fusion using the Dempster-Shafer rule and that of data-level fusion in the MRF context is studied in this paper to obtain an optimally segmented image. Subsequently, segments are validated and classification accuracy for the test data is evaluated. Two(More)
We present the design and experimental evaluation of a wireless system that exploits relaying in the context of WiFi. We opt for WiFi given its popularity and wide spread use for a number of applications, such as smart homes. Our testbed consists of three nodes, a source, a relay and a destination, that operate using the physical layer procedures of(More)
—We present a structured Quantize-Map-and-Forward (QMF) scheme for cooperative communication over wireless networks, that employs LDPC ensembles for the node operations and message-passing algorithms for decoding. We demonstrate through extensive simulation results over the full-duplex parallel relay network, that our scheme, with no transmit channel state(More)
—Physical layer cooperation of a source with a relay can significantly boost the performance of a wireless connection. However, the best practical relaying scheme can vary depending on the relative strengths of the channels that connect the source, relay and destination. This paper proposes and evaluates QUILT, a system for physical-layer relaying that(More)
