    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates the system achievable rate and optimization for the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)-orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system with an energy harvesting (EH) relay. Firstly we propose a time switchingbased relaying (TSR) protocol to enable the simultaneous information processing and energy harvesting at the relay. Then, we discuss its achievable rate performance theoretically and formulated an optimization problem to maximize the system achievable rate. As the problem is difficult to solve, we design an Augmented Lagrangian Penalty Function (ALPF) method for it. Extensive simulation results are provided to demonstrate the accuracy of the analytical results and the effectiveness of the ALPF method.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, energy harvesting (EH) has emerged as a promising way to realize green communications. In this paper, we investigate the multiuser transmission network with an EH cooperative relay, where a source transmits independent information to multiple destinations with the help of an energy constrained relay. The relay can harvest energy from the radio frequency (RF) signals transmitted from the source, and it helps the multiuser transmission only by consuming the harvested energy. By adopting the time switching and the power-splitting relay receiver architectures, we firstly propose two protocols, the time-switching cooperative multiuser transmission (TSCMT) protocol and the power-splitting cooperative multiuser transmission (PSCMT) protocol, to enable the simultaneous information processing and EH at the relay for the system. To evaluate the system performance, we theoretically analyze the system outage probability for the two proposed protocols, and then derive explicit expressions for each of them, respectively. Moreover, we also discuss the effects of system configuration parameters, such as the source power and relay location on the system performance. Numerical results are provided to demonstrate the accuracy of our analytical results and reveal that compared with traditional non-cooperative scheme, our proposed protocols are green solutions to offer reliable communication and lower system outage probability without consuming additional energy. In particular, for the same transmit power at the source, the PSCMT protocol is superior to the TSCMT protocol to obtain lower system outage probability.

    ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting (EH) and network coding (NC) have emerged as two promising technologies for future wireless networks. In this paper, we combine them together in a single system and then present a time switching-based network coding relaying (TSNCR) protocol for the two-way relay system, where an energy constrained relay harvests energy from the transmitted radio frequency (RF) signals from two sources, and then helps the two-way relay information exchange between the two sources with the consumption of the harvested energy. To evaluate the system performance, we derive an explicit expression of the outage probability for the proposed TSNCR protocol. In order to explore the system performance limit, we formulate an optimization problem to minimize the system outage probability. Since the problem is non-convex and cannot be directly solved, we design a genetic algorithm (GA)-based optimization algorithm for it. Numerical results validate our theoretical analysis and show that in such an EH two-way relay system, if NC is applied, the system outage probability can be greatly decreased. Moreover, it is shown that the relay position greatly affects the system performance of TSNCR, where relatively worse outage performance is achieved when the relay is placed in the middle of the two sources. This is the first time to observe such a phenomena in EH two-way relay systems.

    ABSTRACT: In this study, the authors consider the robust transceiver design in a dual-hop multi-user multiple-input multiple-output amplify-and-forward relay system. By incorporating the antenna correlation at both ends of the channel and taking the channel estimation errors into account, the authors propose two robust design approaches under the minimum sum mean-square-error criterion. Specifically, they decouple the original problem into three convex sub-problems in the first approach and develop an iterative algorithm with guaranteed convergence. The second approach converts the original problem into simple power allocation problems utilising a certain relaying structure, and the approximate closed-form solutions are derived. Some practical implementation issues are also discussed. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.

    ABSTRACT: This paper investigates the simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) for two-hop orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) decode-and-forward (DF) relay communication system, where a relay harvests energy from radio frequency signals transmitted by the source and then uses the harvested energy to assist the information transmission from the source to its destination. The power splitting receiver is considered at the relay, which splits the received signal into two power streams to perform information decoding (ID) and energy harvesting (EH) respectively. For better understanding the behavior and exploring the performance limit of such a system, resource allocation is studied to maximize the total achievable transmission rate. An optimization problem, which jointly takes into account the power allocation, the subcarrier pairing and the power splitting, is formulated. Due to its non-convexity, a resource allocation policy with low complexity based on separation principle is designed. Simulation results show that the system performance can be significantly improved by using our proposed policy. Moreover, the system performance behavior to the relay position is also discussed, and results show that in the two-hop OFDM system with EH relay, the relay should be deployed near the source, while in that with conventional non-EH relay, it should be deployed at the middle between the source and the destination.

    ABSTRACT: Fuzzy vault scheme (FVS) is one of the most popular biometric cryptosystems for biometric template protection. However, error correcting code (ECC) proposed in FVS is not appropriate to deal with real-valued biometric intraclass variances. In this paper, we propose a multidimensional fuzzy vault scheme (MDFVS) in which a general subspace error-tolerant mechanism is designed and embedded into FVS to handle intraclass variances. Palmprint is one of the most important biometrics; to protect palmprint templates; a palmprint based MDFVS implementation is also presented. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme not only can deal with intraclass variances effectively but also could maintain the accuracy and meanwhile enhance security.

    ABSTRACT: Biometric template protection is indispensable to protect personal privacy in large-scale deployment of biometric systems. Accuracy, changeability, and security are three critical requirements for template protection algorithms. However, existing template protection algorithms cannot satisfy all these requirements well. In this paper, we propose a hybrid approach that combines random projection and fuzzy vault to improve the performances at these three points. Heterogeneous space is designed for combining random projection and fuzzy vault properly in the hybrid scheme. New chaff point generation method is also proposed to enhance the security of the heterogeneous vault. Theoretical analyses of proposed hybrid approach in terms of accuracy, changeability, and security are given in this paper. Palmprint database based experimental results well support the theoretical analyses and demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed hybrid approach.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate the robust transceiver design for a downlink multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) amplify-and-forward (AF) relay system with imperfect channel state information (CSI). We consider that the actual channel is within the neighborhood of a nominal channel and formulate two optimization problems following the philosophy of worst-case robustness, i.e., minimizing the sum mean-square-error (SMSE) and minimizing the total transmit power for any channel realization in the uncertainty region. In order to efficiently find the solutions, we transform the original problems into suitable forms using the sign-definiteness lemma and then propose an alternating iterative algorithm with guaranteed convergence. To further reduce the computational complexity, the cutting-set method is developed, which alternates between transceiver design and channel determination steps. Moreover, some interesting extensions of the proposed methods are discussed, including various types of uncertainty models and transmit power constraints, nonlinear transceiver structure, and uncertain noise covariance. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed robust designs.

    ABSTRACT: Signal-time coding (STC) is a newly proposed transmission scheme for half-duplex relay networks, which is able to achieve higher information flow rate by combining the traditional encoding/modulation mode in the signal domain with the signal pulse phase modulation in the time domain. However, most of the results for STC are only obtained under the ideal assumptions that the signal detections at physical layer are perfect and there are still a lot of fundamental problems to be explored. This paper considers the implementing issues of STC at physical layer in additive white Gaussian noise relay networks. Firstly, a performance evaluation criterion, the reliable information per symbol (RIPS), is proposed to characterize the performance of STC in noisy wireless networks. Secondly, a new construction scheme based on route ID for the codeword of STC is presented, and some structural properties of the codeword of STC are investigated. Thirdly, the error probabilities of STC in both the signal domain and the time domain are discussed. Furthermore, two implementing schemes, that is, the energy detection based STC (ED-STC) and the symbol detection based STC (SD-STC), are proposed, and their performance bounds in terms of RIPS are discussed. Numerical analyses show that both ED-STC and SD-STC outperform traditional transmission methods in terms of effective information rate even under some practical conditions.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a cooperative transmission scheme for cooperative multi-relay high-speed railway mobile communication system, where fountain codes and mutual information accumulation (IA) method are adopted. The spreading codes are used to separate and detect the signal with interference from multiple relays, and the signal detection process and information receiving strategy at the destination are designed. Then we analyze the performance of the system in terms of the transmission rate, where the probability density function of the transmission rate of IA is derived, as well as the corresponding average transmission rate. For comparison, the traditional energy accumulation (EA) based receiving scheme is also analyzed. Results show when spreading codes are not orthogonal, if the signal to noise ratio (SNR) is relatively low, the performance of IA-based information receiving method is worse than that of EA-based one, and if SNR is relatively high, the performance of IA-based information receiving method is superior to that of EA-based one.

    ABSTRACT: To enhance the symbol error rate (SER) performance of the two-way relay channels with physical layer network coding, this letter proposes a relay selection scheme, in which the relay with the maximal minimum distance between different points in its constellation among all relays is selected to assist two-way transmissions. We give the closed-form expression of minimum distance for binary phase-shift keying and quadrature phase-shift keying. Additionally, we design a low-complexity method for higher-order modulations based on look-up tables. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme improves the SER performance for two-way relay networks.

    ABSTRACT: Weighted sum-rate maximization with transmit power limit and energy harvesting constraints is considered in the context of two-way collaborative relay systems. We discuss an ideal scheme where the source nodes can decode information signal and harvest energy, simultaneously. An iterative algorithm based on semidefinite relaxation (SDR) and successive convex approximation (SCA) is developed to obtain (at least) a local optimal solution. In view of the limitation of the current circuits, we propose a practical ping-pong scheme wherein the source node can only perform one operation at a time. Furthermore, the iterative algorithm and its convergence are extended to such a case. The efficacy of the proposed algorithms is validated by numerical experiments.

    ABSTRACT: Intelligent closed-loop control is a main development tend of future drilling technologies. To fully explore the potential capacity of the closed-loop control function for future measurement/logging-while-drilling systems, in this paper we put forward a real-time channel-adaptive transmission strategy based on RaptorQ codes. To further enhance the system performance, we further extend it to a new version with channel adaptive function, in which the ground control center periodically tracks the variation of channel quality during the process of drilling, and then adaptively adjusts the transmission parameters within the underground sensors through the feedback closed-loop control channel, to maintain the real-time and reliability performance of the data transmission. The framework and the steps of the RaptorQ code based transmission strategy are designed. Finally, we present extensive experimental results performed with real logging data, which show that our proposed solution can improve the transmission efficiency and reliability for M/LWD system greatly, especially when the channel is with high packet loss rate. The results also provide some valuable insights for designing fast stable log data transmission systems with very low feed-back channels.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate the transceiver design in a dual-hop multi-user multiple-input multiple-output amplify-and-forward relay system. By taking the bounded channel uncertainties into account, we propose two robust design methods under the minimum sum mean-square-error (SMSE) criterion. The original problem is first transformed into a tractable one applying the generalized sign-definiteness lemma, and then the transceiver is achieved by employing an iterative algorithm based on alternating optimization. Moreover, in order to reduce the complexity, a novel cutting-set method is developed to solve the considered problem efficiently by solving an alternating sequence of SMSE minimization and worst-case analysis problems. Simulation results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed methods.

    ABSTRACT: This paper studies the beamforming design of two-way relay systems for simultaneous information and power transfer with consideration of imperfect channel state information (CSI). To this end, we seek the robust beamforming design to maximize the weighted sum rate under the power constraint at relay nodes and the energy harvesting constraints at the two source nodes. Due to the infinitely many nonconvex constraints, the robust beamforming design problem is challenging. Therefore, we firstly propose an approximate to the signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR). Then an iterative algorithm is developed based on the semidefinite relaxation (SDR), S-procedure and successive convex approximation (SCA) techniques. Furthermore, the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is validated by numerical experiments.

    ABSTRACT: In cognitive radio networks, spectrum sensing is an essential functionality to detect the presence of primary users (PUs). Cyclostationary detector, that can robustly detect weak primary signals, is becoming a promising candidate for spectrum sensing. In this paper, we focus on a weighted cooperative spectrum sensing algorithm based on cyclostationarity. Since the proposed method improves the contributions of the sensing node with high reliability by adapting the weight to the local SNR, it is more reliable than the traditional cyclostationarity based schemes. The simulation results show that the proposed weighted cooperative spectrum sensing scheme outperforms the conventional methods even in low SNR conditions.

    ABSTRACT: Multicell coordinated beamforming (MCBF), where multiple base stations (BSs) collaborate with each other in the beamforming design for mitigating the intercell interference (ICI), has been a subject drawing great attention recently. Most MCBF designs assume perfect channel state information (CSI) of mobile stations (MSs); however CSI errors are inevitable at the BSs in practice. Assuming elliptically bounded CSI errors, this paper studies the robust MCBF design problem that minimizes the weighted sum power of BSs subject to worst-case signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) constraints on the MSs. Our goal is to devise a distributed optimization method to obtain the worst-case robust beamforming solutions in a decentralized fashion with only local CSI used at each BS and limited backhaul information exchange between BSs. However, the considered problem is difficult to handle even in the centralized form. We first propose an efficient approximation method for solving the nonconvex centralized problem, using semidefinite relaxation (SDR), an approximation technique based on convex optimization. Then a distributed robust MCBF algorithm is further proposed, using a distributed convex optimization technique known as alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM). We analytically show the convergence of the proposed distributed robust MCBF algorithm to the optimal centralized solution. We also extend the worst-case robust beamforming design as well as its decentralized implementation method to a fully coordinated scenario. Simulation results are presented to examine the effectiveness of the proposed SDR method and the distributed robust MCBF algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: This paper considers robust multi-cell coordinated beamforming (MCBF) design for downlink wireless systems, in the presence of channel state information (CSI) errors. By assuming that the CSI errors are complex Gaussian distributed, we formulate a chance-constrained robust MCBF design problem which guarantees that the mobile stations can achieve the desired signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) requirements with a high probability. A convex approximation method, based on semidefinite relaxation and tractable probability approximation formulations, is proposed. The goal is to solve the convex approximation formulation in a distributed manner, with only a small amount of information exchange between base stations. To this end, we develop a distributed implementation by applying a convex optimization method, called weighted variable-penalty alternating direction method of multipliers (WVP-ADMM), which is numerically more stable and can converge faster than the standard ADMM method. Simulation results are presented to examine the chance-constrained robust MCBF design and the proposed distributed implementation algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: Currently, single sample biometrics recognition (SSBR) has emerged as one of the major research contents. It may lead to bad recognition result. To solve this problem, we present a novel approach by fusing two kinds of hand-based biometrics, i.e., palmprint and middle finger. We obtain their discriminant features by combining statistical information and structural information of each modal which are extracted using locality preserving projection (LPP) based on wavelet transform (WT). In order to reduce the influence of affine transform, we utilize mean filtering to enhance the robustness of structural information to improve the discriminant ability of palmprint high-frequency sub-bands. The two types of features are then fused at score level for the final hand-based SSBR. The experiments on the hand image database that contains 1,000 samples from 100 individuals show that the proposed feature extraction and fusion methods lead to promising performance.

    ABSTRACT: Signal-Time Coding (STC), a novel transmission mechanism, was proposed recently. It combines the traditional encoding/modulation mode in the signal domain with the signal pulse phase modulation in the time domain and can achieve higher information flow rate in some cases for relay networks. However, there are still many fundamental problems to be investigated. This paper considers the implementing issue of STC in AWGN relay networks. Firstly, an energy detection based STC (ED-STC) scheme is proposed and the error probabilities of ED-STC in both the signal domain and the time domain are given. Secondly, a performance evaluation criterion, the reliable information per symbol (RIPS), is proposed to characterize the performance of STC in noisy wireless networks. Moreover, the performance bounds of the RIPS of ED-STC are derived. Numerical analysis show that ED-STC outperforms traditional transmission method in terms of effective information rate within some practical conditions.
