Cooperative communications for future wireless networks

Summary

The distributed nature of the wireless network provides unique opportunities for collaborative and distributed signal processing techniques that can potentially lead to significant energy saving and performance gain. Relaying protocols, distributed coding and collaborative signal processing strategies are key issues in design of cooperative wireless networks. At present there are many unsolved research problems in this field.  This project aims to develop cooperative communications techniques for multi-hop relay network, including optimization of distributed coding, joint channel and network coding design, development of new relaying protocols, cooperative transmission schemes, resource and power allocations and cross layer optimization. The developed techniques will be applied in wireless sensor networks for next generation cellular radio networks.
