Abstract [en]

Industry 4.0 is the emerging trend of the industrial automation. Millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication is a prominent technology for wireless networks to support the Industry 4.0 requirements. The availability of tractable accurate interference models would greatly facilitate performance analysis and protocol development for these networks. In this paper, we investigate the accuracy of an interference model that assumes impenetrable obstacles and neglects the sidelobes. We quantify the error of such a model in terms of statistical distribution of the signal to noise plus interference ratio and of the user rate for outdoor mmWave networks under different carrier frequencies and antenna array settings. The results show that assuming impenetrable obstacle comes at almost no accuracy penalty, and the accuracy of neglecting antenna sidelobes can be guaranteed with sufficiently large number of antenna elements. The comprehensive discussions of this paper provide useful insights for the performance analysis and protocol design of outdoor mmWave networks.

Abstract [en]

The underutilized millimeter-wave (mm-wave) band is a promising candidate to enable extremely high data rate communications in future wireless networks. However, the special characteristics of the mm-wave systems such as high vulnerability to obstacles (due to high penetration loss) and to mobility (due to directional communications) demand a careful design of the association between the clients and access points (APs). This challenge can be addressed by distributed association techniques that gracefully adapt to wireless channel variations and client mobilities. We formulated the association problem as a mixed-integer optimization aiming to maximize the network throughput with proportional fairness guarantees. This optimization problem is solved first by a distributed dual decomposition algorithm, and then by a novel distributed auction algorithm where the clients act asynchronously to achieve near-to-optimal association between the clients and APs. The latter algorithm has a faster convergence with a negligible drop in the resulting network throughput. A distinguishing novel feature of the proposed algorithms is that the resulting optimal association does not have to be re-computed every time the network changes (e.g., due to mobility). Instead, the algorithms continuously adapt to the network variations and are thus very efficient. We discuss the implementation of the proposed algorithms on top of existing communication standards. The numerical analysis verifies the ability of the proposed algorithms to optimize the association and to maintain optimality in the time-variant environments of the mm-wave networks.

Abstract [en]

To make the system available at low-cost, millimeter-ave (mmWave) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) architectures employ analog arrays, which are driven by a limited number of radio frequency (RF) chains. One primary challenge of using large hybrid analog-digital arrays is that the digital baseband cannot directly access the signal to/from each antenna. To address this limitation, recent research has focused on retransmissions, iterative precoding, and subspace decomposition methods. Unlike these approaches that exploited the channel's low-rank, in this work we exploit the sparsity of the received signal at both the transmit/receive antennas. While the signal itself is de facto dense, it is well-known that most signals are sparse under an appropriate choice of basis. By delving into the structured compressive sensing (CS) framework and adapting them to variants of the mmWave hybrid architectures, we provide methodologies to recover the analog signal at each antenna from the (low-dimensional) digital signal. Moreover, we characterizes the minimal numbers of measurement and RF chains to provide this recovery, with high probability. We discuss their applications to common variants of the hybrid architecture. By leveraging the inherent sparsity of the received signal, our analysis reveals that a hybrid MIMO system can be " turned into" a fully digital one: the number of needed RF chains increases logarithmically with the number of antennas.

Abstract [en]

Proximity service (ProSe), using the geographic location and device information by considering the proximity of mobile devices, enriches the services we use to interact with people and things around us. ProSe has been used in mobile social networks in proximity and also in smart home and building automation (Google Home). To enable ProSe in smart home, reliable and stable network protocols and communication infrastructures are needed. Thread is a new wireless protocol aiming at smart home and building automation (BA), which supports mesh networks and native Internet protocol connectivity. The latency of Thread should be carefully studied when used in user-friendly and safety-critical ProSe in smart home and BA. In this paper, a system level model of latency in the Thread mesh network is presented. The accumulated latency consists of different kinds of delay from the application layer to the physical layer. A Markov chain model is used to derive the probability distribution of the medium access control service time. The system level model is experimentally validated in a multi-hop Thread mesh network. The outcomes show that the system model results match well with the experimental results. Finally, based on an analytical model, a software tool is developed to estimate the latency of the Thread mesh network, providing developers more network information to develop user-friendly and safety-critical ProSe in smart home and BA.

Abstract [en]

Finding a dataset of minimal cardinality to characterize the optimal parameters of a model is of paramount importance in machine learning and distributed optimization over a network. This paper investigates the compressibility of large datasets. More specifically, we propose a framework that jointly learns the input-output mapping as well as the most representative samples of the dataset (sufficient dataset). Our analytical results show that the cardinality of the sufficient dataset increases sub-linearly with respect to the original dataset size. Numerical evaluations of real datasets reveal a large compressibility, up to 95%, without a noticeable drop in the learnability performance, measured by the generalization error.

Abstract [en]

Full-duplex base-stations with half-duplex nodes, allowing simultaneous uplink and downlink from different nodes, have the potential to double the spectrum efficiency without adding additional complexity at mobile nodes. Hybrid beam forming is commonly used in millimeter wave systems for its implementation efficiency. An important element of hybrid beam-forming is quantized phase shifters. In this paper, we ask if low-resolution phase shifters suffice for beamforming-based full-duplex millimeter wave systems. We formulate the problem of joint design for both self-interference suppression and downlink beamforming as an optimization problem, which we solve using penalty dual decomposition to obtain a near-optimal solution. Numerical results indicate that low-resolution phase shifters can perform close to systems that use infinite phase shifter resolution, and that even a single quantization bit outperforms half-duplex transmissions in both low and high residual self-interference scenarios.

Abstract [en]

This paper proposes a new large-scale mask compliant spectral precoder (LS-MSP) for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing systems. In this paper, we first consider a previously proposed mask-compliant spectral precoding scheme that utilizes a generic convex optimization solver which suffers from high computational complexity, notably in large-scale systems. To mitigate the complexity of computing the LS-MSP, we propose a divide-and-conquer approach that breaks the original problem into smaller rank 1 quadratic-constraint problems and each small problem yields closed-form solution. Based on these solutions, we develop three specialized first-order low-complexity algorithms, based on 1) projection on convex sets and 2) the alternating direction method of multipliers. We also develop an algorithm that capitalizes on the closed-form solutions for the rank 1 quadratic constraints, which is referred to as 3) semianalytical spectral precoding. Numerical results show that the proposed LS-MSP techniques outperform previously proposed techniques in terms of the computational burden while complying with the spectrum mask. The results also indicate that 3) typically needs 3 iterations to achieve similar results as 1) and 2) at the expense of a slightly increased computational complexity.

Abstract [en]

Ultra-high reliable and low-latency communication (URLLC)is envisaged to support emerging applications with strict latency and reliability requirements. Critical industrial control is among the most important URLLC applications where the stringent requirements make the deployment of wireless networks critical, especially as far as latency is concerned. Since the amount of data exchanged in critical industrial communications is generally small, an effective way to reduce the latency is to minimize the packet's synchronization overhead, starting from the physical layer (PHY). This paper proposes to use a short one-symbol PHY preamble for critical wireless industrial communications, reducing significantly the transmission latency with respect to other wireless standards. Dedicated packet detection and synchronization algorithms are discussed, analyzed, and tuned to ensure that the required reliability level is achieved with such extremely short preamble. Theoretical analysis, simulations, and experiments show that detection error rates smaller than 10(-6) can be achieved with the proposed preamble while minimizing the latencies.

Abstract [en]

In electricity distribution networks, the increasing penetration of renewable energy generation necessitates faster and more sophisticated voltage controls. Unfortunately, recent research shows that local voltage control fails in achieving the desired regulation, unless there is communication between the controllers. However, the communication infrastructure for distribution systems is less reliable and less ubiquitous compared to that for the bulk transmission system. In this paper, we design distributed voltage control that uses limited communication. That is, only neighboring buses need to communicate a few bits between each other for each control step. We investigate how these controllers can achieve the desired asymptotic behavior of the voltage regulation and we provide upper bounds on the number of bits that are needed to ensure a predefined accuracy of the regulation. Finally, we illustrate the results by numerical simulations.

Abstract [en]

Location information for events, assets, and individuals, mostly focusing on two dimensions so far, has triggered a multitude of applications across different verticals, such as consumer, networking, industrial, health care, public safety, and emergency response use cases. To fully exploit the potential of location awareness and enable new advanced location-based services, localization algorithms need to be combined with complementary technologies including accurate height estimation, i.e., three dimensional location, reliable user mobility classification, and efficient indoor mapping solutions. This survey provides a comprehensive review of such enabling technologies. In particular, we present cellular localization systems including recent results on 5G localization, and solutions based on wireless local area networks, highlighting those that are capable of computing 3D location in multi-floor indoor environments. We overview range-free localization schemes, which have been traditionally explored in wireless sensor networks and are nowadays gaining attention for several envisioned Internet of Things applications. We also present user mobility estimation techniques, particularly those applicable in cellular networks, that can improve localization and tracking accuracy. Regarding the mapping of physical space inside buildings for aiding tracking and navigation applications, we study recent advances and focus on smartphone-based indoor simultaneous localization and mapping approaches. The survey concludes with service availability and system scalability considerations, as well as security and privacy concerns in location architectures, discusses the technology roadmap, and identifies future research directions.
