Machine-learning-based prediction of future wireless link quality is an emerging technique that can potentially improve the reliability of wireless communications, especially at higher frequencies (e.g., millimeter-wave and terahertz technologies), through predictive handover and beamforming to solve line-of-sight (LOS) blockage problem. In this study, a real-time online trainable wireless link quality prediction system was proposed; the system was implemented with commercially available… Expand


Proactive Received Power Prediction Using Machine Learning and Depth Images for mmWave Networks
The simulation and experimental evaluations demonstrated that the proposed mechanism employing convolutional long short-term memory predicted a time series of received power up to 500 ms ahead, with an inference time of less than 3 ms and a root-mean-square error of 3.4 dB. Expand
Handover Management for mmWave Networks With Proactive Performance Prediction Using Camera Images and Deep Reinforcement Learning
The evaluations performed based on the experimentally obtained camera images and received powers demonstrate that the expanded state space facilitates the prediction of obstacle-caused data rate degradations from 500 ms before the degradation occur and superior performance to a handover framework without the state space expansion.

Communication-Efficient Multimodal Split Learning for mmWave Received Power Prediction
A distributed multimodal machine learning (ML) framework, coined MultSL), in which a large neural network is split into two wirelessly connected segments, in which the upper segment combines images and received powers for future received power prediction, whereas the lower segment compresses its output to reduce communication costs and privacy leakage.
