Joint Detection and Decoding in Machine Type Communications
Machine-to-machine communication, a promising technology for the smart city concept, enables ubiquitous connectivity between one or more autonomous devices without or with minimal human interaction. M2M communication is the key technology to support data transfer among sensors and actuators to facilitate various smart city applications (e.g., smart metering, surveillance and security, infrastructure management, city automation, and eHealth).
Multi-hop Wireless Networks
In this problem, we characterize the capacity of the multi-hop wireless networks using advanced transmission techniques like interference alignment and interference neutralization.
