This paper investigates and compares the performance
of wireless sensor networks where sensors operate on
the principles of cooperative communications. We consider a
scenario where the source transmits signals to the destination
with the help of L sensors. As the destination has the capacity of
processing only U out of these L signals, the strongest U signals
are selected while the remaining (L?U) signals are suppressed.
A preprocessing block similar to channel-shortening is proposed
in this contribution. However, this preprocessing block employs
a rank-reduction technique instead of channel-shortening. By
employing this preprocessing, we are able to decrease the
computational complexity of the system without affecting the
bit error rate (BER) performance. From our simulations, it can
be shown that these schemes outperform the channel-shortening
schemes in terms of computational complexity. In addition,
the proposed schemes have a superior BER performance as
compared to channel-shortening schemes when sensors employ
fixed gain amplification. However, for sensors which employ
variable gain amplification, a tradeoff exists in terms of BER
performance between the channel-shortening and these schemes.
These schemes outperform channel-shortening scheme for lower
Export search results
The export option will allow you to export the current search results of the entered query to a file. Different
formats are available for download. To export the items, click on the button corresponding with the preferred download format.
By default, clicking on the export buttons will result in a download of the allowed maximum amount of items.
For anonymous users the allowed maximum amount is 50 search results.
To select a subset of the search results, click "Selective Export" button and make a selection of the items you want to export.
The amount of items that can be exported at once is similarly restricted as the full export.
After making a selection, click one of the export format buttons. The amount of items that will be exported is indicated in the bubble next to export format.
