Rate-adaptive modulation techniques for infrared wireless communications

  title={Rate-adaptive modulation techniques for infrared wireless communications},
  author={Luciano Diana and Joseph M. Kahn},
ce Abstract While infrared links can support transmission at high bit rates, it is difficult to maintain a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) sufficient to support these high bit rates under all conditions using reasonable transmitter power levels. Under adverse conditions, instead of incurring abrupt link failure, it is preferable to achieve graceful degradation by lowering the bit rate until a suitably low error probability can be attained. We describe several coding and decoding schemes for rate… CONTINUE READING
