In this paper, hierarchical modulation is used in conjunction with maximum-weight scheduling to achieve lower transmission delays. Via hierarchical modulation, the scheduled user has the option to transmit to two users simultaneously. In order to reflect service differentiation schemes used in upper layers, a scenario in which each user generates packets with different priority levels is considered. It is assumed that as long as there are high priority packets waiting in the scheduled user's queue, lower priority packets cannot be transmitted. It is shown that, using hierarchical modulation in the presence of packet prioritization, average delay of low priority traffic can be reduced while achieving higher throughput. In the absence of packet prioritization, using hierarchical modulation lowers packet transmission delays without any loss in throughput. The effect of multiple access interference is also investigated. It is shown that both single and two-layer schemes have similar average spatial reuse factors. (C) 2016 Elsevier GmbH.

In this paper, hierarchical modulation is used in conjunction with maximum-weight scheduling to achieve lower transmission delays. Via hierarchical modulation, the scheduled user has the option to transmit to two users simultaneously. The results are compared with classical single-layered transmission. Simulation results show that packet transmission delays are lowered without any loss in throughput. In addition to this, it is demonstrated that hierarchical modulation is robust in point-to-point settings, a...
Adaptive modulation for completion time minimization in wireless broadcast networks
Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Genc, Yasin (2017-01-01)
In this work we study the effect of hierarchical modulation on completion time minimization in wireless broadcast channels. Time needed to transmit all bits intended for a particular user is defined as its completion time. In this work we investigate minimizing the maximum completion time over all users in a broadcast channel using hierarchical modulation. We compare time division, opportunistic scheduling, and three different adaptive modulation schemes: rate adaptive hierarchical modulation assisted trans...
Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Cooperative Communication
Yalcin, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-01-01)
In cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase systems robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. In cooperative communication systems which use hierarchical modulation, error propagation is the most important problem that prevents achieving full diversity gain. Thresholds that depend on the signal to noise ratio (SNR) value between the source and the relay can be used to mitigate error propagation. If the instantaneous SNR between the source and th...
Reducing MIMO detection complexity via hierarchical modulation /
Uğur, Yiğit; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This work considers multiple-inputmultiple-output (MIMO) communication systems using hierarchical modulation. A disadvantage of the maximum-likelihood (ML) MIMO detector is that its computational complexity increases exponentially with the number of transmit antennas. To reduce complexity, we propose a hierarchical modulation scheme to be used in MIMO transmission where base and enhancement layers are incorporated. In the proposed receiver, the base layer is detected first with a minimum mean square error (...
Optimal Message Scheduling for the Static Segment of FlexRay
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (2010-10-04)
In this paper, we study the scheduling of periodic messages in the static segment of the FlexRay protocol. Our approach is based on two performance metrics. Similar to previous work, we seek to allocate a minimum number of frame IDs (FIDs) in the static segment. In addition, different from existing work, we want to minimize the message jitter, i.e., the deviation of the message transmission from the required periodicity. To this end, we first derive analytical expressions that quantify the FID allocation an...
