  • Wireless Coordinated Multicell Systems

    Wireless Coordinated Multicell Systems Cover

    Duy H N Nguyen, Tho Le-Ngoc

    This SpringerBrief discusses the current research on coordinated multipoint transmission/reception (CoMP) in wireless multi-cell systems. This book analyzes the structure of the CoMP precoders and the message exchange mechanism in the CoMP system in order to reveal the advantage of CoMP. Topics include interference management in wireless cellular networks, joint signal processing, interference coordination, uplink and downlink precoding and system models. After an exploration of the motivations and concepts of CoMP, the authors present the architectures of a CoMP system. Practical implementation and operational challenges of CoMP are discussed in detail. Also included is a review of CoMP architectures and deployment scenarios in the LTE-Advanced standard. Readers are exposed to the latest multiuser precoding designs for the CoMP system under two operating modes, interference aware and interference coordination. Wireless Coordinated Multi cell Systems: Architectures and Precoding Designs is a concise and approachable tool for researchers, professionals and advanced-level students interested in wireless communications and networks.
  • Wireless Communications Networks for the Smart Grid

    Wireless Communications Networks for the Smart Grid Cover

    Quang-Dung Ho, Yue Gao, Gowdemy Rajalingham, Tho Le-Ngoc

    This brief presents a comprehensive review of the network architecture and communication technologies of the smart grid communication network (SGCN). It then studies the strengths, weaknesses and applications of two promising wireless mesh routing protocols that could be used to implement the SGCN. Packet transmission reliability, latency and robustness of these two protocols are evaluated and compared by simulations in various practical SGCN scenarios. Finally, technical challenges and open research opportunities of the SGCN are addressed. Wireless Communications Networks for Smart Grid provides communication network architects and engineers with valuable proven suggestions to successfully implement the SGCN. Advanced-level students studying computer science or electrical engineering will also find the content helpful.

  • Wide Area 2D/3D Imaging

    Wide Area 2D/3D Imaging Cover

    Benjamin Langmann

    Imaging technology is an important research area and it is widely utilized in a growing number of disciplines ranging from gaming, robotics and automation to medicine. In the last decade 3D imaging became popular mainly driven by the introduction of novel 3D cameras and measuring devices. These cameras are usually limited to indoor scenes with relatively low distances. Benjamin Langmann introduces medium and long-range 2D/3D cameras to overcome these limitations. He reports measurement results for these devices and studies their characteristic behavior. In order to facilitate the application of these cameras, common algorithms are adapted to the 2D/3D data and new approaches for standard computer vision tasks are introduced.
