The Communications laboratory is primarily engaged in research into advanced digital wireless systems. The work encompasses theoretical, simulation and DSP based hardware prototyping and the projects underway include:
Development of advanced adaptive receiver structures for fading dispersive channels. This includes work on near optimum, reduced complexity receivers.
Various studies of advanced coded modulation systems for use in the wireless environment.
The development, including a hardware prototype of adaptive wireless systems to allow the experimental study of array performance and the investigation of multi-user detection and decoding algorithms.
