In this paper, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) concept is introduced for multi group multicast beamforming. Each user has a single antenna and a power splitter which divides the radio frequency (RF) signal into two for both information decoding and energy harvesting. The aim is to minimize the total transmission power at the base station while satisfying both signal-to-interference-plus- noise-ratio (SINR) and harvested power constraints at each user. Unlike unicast and certain broadcast scenarios, semidefinite relaxation (SDR) is not tight and global optimum solution cannot be found for this problem. We propose an iterative algorithm where a convex optimization problem is solved at each iteration. Both perfect and imperfect channel state information (CSI) at the base station are considered. Simulation results show that the proposed solution is very close to the SDR lower bound and a few number of iterations are enough for the algorithm convergence.

Cooperative Localization In One-Hop And Multi-Hop Wireless Sensor Networks Using Alternating Minimization Algorithm
Erdemir, Ece Naz; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-05-19)
In this work, a new approach is proposed to solve cooperative localization problems in wireless sensor networks for both one-hop and multi-hop cases. To find the unknown positions of randomly distributed sensors with limited power and communication ability, noisy inter-sensor distances and anchor node positions are used. In a plane, when the distances between a sensor and at least three neighbor anchors are known, it is possible to find the sensor position by solving a linear set of equations. However, for ...
Parallel decodable channel coding implemented on a MIMO testbed
Aktaş, Tuğcan; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
This thesis considers the real-time implementation phases of a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communication system. The parts which are related to the implementation detail the blocks realized on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) board and define the connections between these blocks and typical radio frequency front-end modules assisting the wireless communication. Two sides of the implemented communication testbed are discussed separately as the transmitter and the receiver parts. In a...

Chamanian, Salar; Ulusan, Hasan; Zorlu, Ozge; Baghaee, Sajjad; Uysal, Elif; Külah, Haluk (2016-10-01)
This paper presents a battery-less wireless sensor network (WSN) equipped with electromagnetic (EM) energy harvesters and sensor nodes with adjustable time-interval based on stored the energy. A wearable EM energy harvesting system is developed and optimized to power-up a typical wireless sensor mote from body motion. This is realized through characterization of the body motion and design of a compact EM energy harvester according to vibration frequencies generated during human running and walking. The harv...
Mobile traffic modelling for wireless multimedia sensor networks in IoT
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Radwan, Ayman; Mumtaz, Shahid; Rodriguez, Jonathan (2017-11-01)
Wireless sensor networks suffer from some limitations such as energy constraints and the cooperative demands essential to perform multi-hop geographic routing for real-time applications. Quality of Service (QoS) depends to a great extent on offering participating nodes an incentive for collaborating. In this paper, we present a novel traffic model for a new-generation of sensor networks that supports a wide range of communication-intensive real-time multimedia applications. The model is used to investigate ...
Antenna Selection and Hybrid Beamforming for Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer in Multi-Group Multicasting Systems
DEMİR, ÖZLEM TUĞFE; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-10-01)
In this paper, low-cost alternatives to full digital beamforming, namely, antenna selection and hybrid beamforming, are proposed for simultaneous wireless information and power transfer in a multi-group multicasting scenario. The joint problem can be outlined as the design of beamformer weight vectors and power splitting ratios in order to satisfy both signal-to-interference-plus-noise - ratio and harvested power constraints at each user with minimum transmission power. We first develop an efficient algorit...
