© 2018 IEEE. Fifth-generation cellular mobile networks are expected to support mission critical URLLC services in addition to enhanced mobile broadband applications. This article first introduces three emerging mission critical applications of URLLC and identifies their requirements on end-to-end latency and reliability. We then investigate the various sources of end-to-end delay of current wireless networks by taking 4G LTE as an example. Then we propose and evaluate several techniques to reduce the end-to-end latency from the perspectives of error control coding, signal processing, and radio resource management. We also briefly discuss other network design approaches with the potential for further latency reduction.

© 2015 IEEE. This letter proposes a novel nonlinear constellation mapping (NLCM) scheme for the rate compatible modulation (RCM) approach in low-To-moderate signal to noise ratios (SNRs). In NLCM, each RCM coded symbol is mapped to a complexvalued amplitude phase shift keying (APSK) constellation point. Moreover, we provide a novelmethod of designing code degree and weight set for a wide SNR range. The proposed NLCM is developed to increase the throughput and decrease the peak to average power ratio (PAPR) at the same time. Both analysis and simulation results show that the NLCM scheme outperforms the original RCM in terms of throughput and PAPR.

© 2019 IEEE. Analog fountain code (AFC) is a seamless rate adaptation strategy and was recently shown to closely approach the channel capacity without the channel state information at the transmitter side. The code was mainly designed for large block lengths and therefore the design for short packet communications which is one of the communication scenarios in 5G ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC), is still not clear. We tackle this problem in this work and particularly focus on the design of the precoder which is shown to significantly affects the overall performance of the AFC in the short block length regime. We consider BCH codes as the precoder, and determine the rate of the code in order to maximize the realized rate under a given block error rate constraint. Simulation is performed to investigate the effect of choices for BCH precoder on the overall performance of BCH-AFC in terms of reliability and latency. We show that by selecting the appropriate BCH code as the AFC precoder, AFC performs closely to the normal approximation benchmark. We further proposed a threshold-based decoder to reduce the decoding complexity which is of significant importance in URLLC scenarios.

© 2018 IEEE. In this paper, we consider the design of training beam sequence for sparse millimeter wave (mmWave) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) tracking systems. We use Markov random walks to model the temporal variations of the beam steering angle of arrival (AoA) and angle of departure (AoD), respectively. By exploiting the MIMO virtual channel representation, the AoA/AoD tracking problem is equivalent to choosing a set of directional training beams to find the nonzero elements in a two-dimensional virtual channel matrix. Furthermore, in contrast to existing work that used each transmitting-receiving beam pair once only, we consider a more general case such that each beam pair might be adopted more than once in the tracking procedure. As the number of repetitions of each transmitting-receiving beam pair can only be integer, the training beam sequence design problem is then formulated as an integer nonlinear programming (INLP) problem. To resolve the formulated INLP problem, we derive a tractable lower bound of the successful tracking probability and then decompose it into a set of convex INLP subproblems, which are solved by implementing an iterative branch-and-bound (BB) method. Numerical results show that our proposed iterative BB algorithm significantly outperforms the benchmark schemes and achieves near-optimal tracking performance.

20191 grants / $455,000

Short Channel Code Design for Mission-Critical Communications$455,000

This project aims to develop fundamental science to enable transmission and channel coding technologies, which will be essential for building and rolling out of future ultra reliable and low latency wireless networks. Reliable and low latency communications are central to the development of the next generation mobile communications and many emerging critical applications. The project is expected to provide the foundations and tools for transforming, modernizing and safeguarding Australia's national critical infrastructure. The project is expected to provide novel applications such as smart grids, telemedicine, intelligent transportations, and industrial automation.

Communication Strategies for the Internet of Things$433,122

By 2020 there will be 25-50 billion embedded devices around the world, seamlessly monitoring their environments, processing information and communicating wirelessly with other devices. This massive growth in wirelessly connect devices will be driven by the internet of things, the name given to the ubiquitous connectivity of everything everywhere. The internet of things is expected to generate incremental revenue exceeding $300 billion. However, wireless cellular networks must be upgraded to accommodate these new devices. This project aims to facilitate expanded wireless connectivity by designing novel random access strategies and multilevel channel codes to enable new massive multiple access communication strategies for cellular networks.
