Opportunistic multiple relaying in wireless ad hoc networks

Yenihayat, Güven
Cooperative relaying systems aim to improve weak communication links by exploiting the spatial diversity obtained by the statistically independent channels between relays and the destination. In this thesis a cooperative relaying scheme called the Opportunistic Multiple Relaying (OMR) is proposed with its special receiver structure. Unlike most relaying schemes in the literature, multiple relay nodes are allowed to transmit in nonorthogonal channels in OMR without requiring any control overhead for relay coordination. OMR is compared to a benchmark scheme called the Selection Relaying (SR) in which the relay node is preselected by the source before transmission according to the average channel quality information. It is observed that OMR performs significantly better than SR in terms of error performance.


Online calibration of sensor arrays using higher order statistics
Aktaş, Metin; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2012)
Higher Order Statistics (HOS) and Second Order Statistics (SOS) approaches have certain advantages and disadvantages in signal processing applications. HOS approach provides more statistical information for non-Gaussian signals. On the other hand, SOS approach is more robust to the estimation errors than the HOS approach, especially when the number of observations is small. In this thesis, HOS and SOS approaches are jointly used in order to take advantage of both methods. In this respect, the joint use of H...
Resource management in callular communication networks with subscriber profile prediction
Yılmaz, Nusrat; Ergül, Rüyal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
In this study, a dynamic resource management and subscriber profile prediction scheme for mobile communication systems is presented. The aim is to achieve a high level of QoS for both handoff calls and new calls, while at the same time to improve the utilization of wireless network resources. The simultaneous satisfaction of these two actually conflicting interests will be thanks to two major key features. First, it will be due to the individual subscriber profile based prior information about handoff reser...
Performance optimization of monopulse tracking radar
Şahin, Mehmet Alper; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
An analysis and simulation tool is developed for optimizing system parameters of the monopulse target tracking radar and observing effects of the system parameters on the performance of the system over different scenarios. A monopulse tracking radar is modeled for measuring the performance of the radar with given parameters, during the thesis studies. The radar model simulates the operation of a Class IA type monopulse automatic tracking radar, which uses a planar phased array. The interacting multiple mode...
Chaotic digital modulation and demodulation
Öztürk, Uygar; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis considers a communication system with chaotic modulation. Noise-like signals are generated by chaotic systems with different parameters to modulate binary digital signals. Demodulation is performed by both the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) and Optimum Decoding Based Smoothing Algorithm (ODSA). Simulations are performed using both of these algorithms for different parameters affecting the performance of the communication system. Simulation results of these algorithms are compared.
Nonlinear estimation techniques applied to econometric problems
Aslan, Serdar; Demirbaş, Kerim; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
This thesis considers the filtering and prediction problems of nonlinear noisy econometric systems. As a filter/predictor, the standard tool Extended Kalman Filter and new approaches Discrete Quantization Filter and Sequential Importance Resampling Filter are used. The algorithms are compared by using Monte Carlo Simulation technique. The advantages of the new algorithms over Extended Kalman Filter are shown.
