—Partial transmit sequences (PTS) is one of the attractive techniques to reduce the peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. As conventional PTS technique requires an exhaustive searching over all the combinations of the given phase factors, which results in the computational complexity increases… (More)
At first, this paper presents an overview on the background and technical merits of wireless access for vehicular environments (WAVE) systems. Next, a WAVE testbed was setup and the preliminary experimental results are reported. The WAVE testbed operates at the center frequency of 5.9 GHz and adopts a signal format defined by a draft of the IEEE 802.11p… (More)
Executive Summary As networking systems have become more complex and expensive, hands-on experiments based on networking simulation have become essential for teaching the key computer networking topics to students. The simulation approach is the most cost effective and highly useful because it provides a virtual environment for an assortment of desirable… (More)
The paper proposes a simple cascade estimation method to detect both carrier frequency and sampling clock offsets for orthogonal frequency-division multiplex (OFDM) systems. The new approach needs much less computation than the typical maximum likelihood (ML) method and generates a satisfactory estimate, which is validated by simulation results.
— In this paper, we provide the design criteria of the nonlinear companding transforms for reduction in peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) of multi-carrier modulation (MCM) signals, which can enable the original MCM signals to be transformed into the desirable distribution. As examples, some novel nonlinear companding transforms have been proposed to… (More)
