Compressive sensing for ultra-wideband channel estimation: on the sparsity assumption of ultra-wideband channels
Due to the sparse structure of ultra-wideband (UWB) multipath channels there has been a considerable amount of interest in applying the compressive sensing (CS) theory to UWB channel estimation. The main consideration of the related studies is to propose different implementations of the CS theory for the estimation of UWB channels which are assumed to be sparse. In this study we investigate the suitability of standardized UWB channel models to be used with the CS theory. In other words we question the sparsity assumption of realistic UWB multipath channels. For that we particularly investigate the effects of IEEE 802.15.4a UWB channel models and the selection of channel resolution both on channel estimation and system performances from a practical implementation point of view. In addition we compare the channel estimation performance with the Cramer-Rao lower bound for various channel models and number of measurements. The study shows that although UWB channel models for residential environments (e.g. channel models CM1 and CM2) exhibit a sparse structure yielding a reasonable channel estimation performance channel models for industrial environments (e.g. CM8) may not be treated as having a sparse structure due to multipaths arriving densely. Furthermore it is shown that the sparsity increased by channel resolution can improve the channel estimation performance significantly at the expense of increased receiver processing.

Publisher and Date:(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2018)Communication over acoustic signals underwater results in multi-scale multi-lag channels due to multipath propagation. Hence a robust channel estimation technique has to be present at the receiver. In this paper assuming underwater channels undergoing Rayleigh fading a path-based channel model that characterizes each path of the time-varying sparse channel by a delay a Doppler scale and an attenuation factor is considered. Alamouti's space-time block transmit diversity scheme is used in the form ...
This paper is concerned with the challenging and timely problem of channel estimation for spatial modulated systems in the presence of time varying channels. Recently estimation of channel state information for SM systems is investigated by the recursive least square (RLS) algorithm for slow fading channels. However it is clear that the RLS based receiver will have a performance degradation for fast fading channels. Therefore we developed iterative channel estimation based on detected symbols and ...
Joint Channel Estimation and Equalization for OFDM based Broadband Communications in Rapidly Varying Mobile Channels This paper is concerned with the challenging and timely problem of channel estimation for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems in the presence of frequency selective and very rapidly time varying channels. In OFDM systems operating over rapidly time-varying channels the orthogonality between subcarriers is destroyed leading to inter-carrier interference (ICI) and resulting in an irreducible error floor. The band-limited discrete cosine serial expansion of low-dimensionality ...
