Primary Audience:

Students, academic researchers, industry affiliates and individuals working for government, military, science and technology institutions who would like to learn more about innovative MIMO concepts for low-complexity and energy-efficient wireless communication systems, as well as their applications to emerging communication paradigms such as relay-aided, multi-user cooperation,  small  cell  cellular  networks,  and  optical  wireless.  The  tutorial  is  intended  to  provide  the  audience  with  a complete overview of the potential benefits, research challenges,  implementation  efforts and applications  to many future wireless communication systems and standards, with the inclusion of the emerging pre-standardization  activities on large- scale (“massive”) MIMO systems.


Novelty, Importance, and Timeliness:

This tutorial addresses a very recent transmission technology for MIMO wireless systems, which has been receiving for the past few years the interest of a broad research community across all continents. Hence, it is expected to draw a lot of interest from the wireless communications community from different parts of the world. Even though SM has a history that goes back to the early 2000s, it is only during the last three or four years that it has gained momentum in the wireless community, especially with the advent of “massive” MIMO and green communications concepts. The number of researchers, both from the  academia  and  industry,  working  on  SM  theory  and  applications  is currently  growing  exponentially.  These  potential attendees of the proposed tutorial will definitely benefit from the broad tutorial outline, covering state-of-the-art, applications, implementation challenges and experimental activities.

 

Tutorial Motivation and Relevance:

The  key  challenge  of  future  mobile  communications  research  is  to  strike  an  attractive  compromise  between  wireless network’s area spectral–efficiency and energy–efficiency. This necessitates new approaches to wireless system design, embracing the rich body of existing knowledge especially on Multiple–Input–Multiple–Output (MIMO) technologies. In the proposed tutorial, we intend to describe a new and emerging concept to wireless system design, which is conceived for single–RF large–scale MIMO communications and it is best-known as Spatial Modulation (SM). The concept of SM has established itself as a beneficial transmission paradigm, subsuming numerous members of the MIMO system–family. The research of SM has reached sufficient maturity to motivate its comparison to state–of–the–art MIMO communications, as well as to inspire its application to other emerging wireless systems such as relay–aided, cooperative, small–cell, optical wireless and  power–efficient  communications.  Furthermore,  it  has  received  sufficient  research  attention  to  be  implemented  in testbeds, and it holds the promise of stimulating further vigorous inter–disciplinary research in the years to come.

The proposed tutorial is intended to offer a comprehensive  state–of–the–art  survey on SM–MIMO research, to provide a critical  appraisal  of its potential  advantages,  and to promote  the discussion  of its beneficial  application  areas  and their research challenges leading to the analysis of the technological issues associated with the implementation of SM–MIMO. The tutorial is concluded with the description of the world’s first experimental activities in this vibrant research field.

 

This tutorial  is based  on the following  publication:  “M. Di Renzo,  H. Haas  A. Ghrayeb,  S. Sugiura,  L. Hanzo,  “Spatial Modulation for Generalized MIMO: Challenges, Opportunities and Implementation”,  Proceedings of the IEEE, vol 102, no. 1, pp. 56-103, Jan. 2014.


Tutorial Outline:

It is widely recognized that the Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) is the most promising physical–layer  standard of fourth generation (4G) cellular networks. The power consumption of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector in the next decade will highly depend on the Energy Efficiency (EE) of this physical–layer standard. However, at the current stage, the LTE-A may be deemed to be conceived, designed and optimized based on the Spectral Efficiency (SE), with limited consideration of EE issues. In fact, especially at the physical–layer, the primary focus has been on achieving high data rates, without giving much cognizance of EE and implementation complexity. However, this approach is no longer acceptable to future cellular networks.

The LTE–A  physical–layer  standard  heavily  relies on MIMO technologies  for enhancing  the SE. MIMO communications constitute promising techniques for the design of fifth generation  (5G) cellular networks. In simple terms, the capacity of MIMO systems is proportional to min{Nt,Nr}, where Nt and Nr represent the number of transmit and receive antennas. This implies that the throughput may be increased linearly with the number of antennas. As a consequence, MIMO techniques can provide high data rates without increasing  the spectrum  utilization  and the transmit  power. However,  in practice,  MIMO systems need a multiplicity of associated circuits, such as power amplifiers, RF chains, mixers, synthesizers,  filters, etc., which substantially increase the circuit power dissipation of the Base Stations (BSs). More explicitly, recent studies have clearly shown that the EE gain of MIMO communications  increases with the number of antennas, provided that only the transmit power of the BSs is taken into account and their circuit power dissipation is neglected. On the other hand, the EE gain of MIMO communications remains modest and decreases with the number of active transmit–antennas, if realistic power consumption  models  are considered  for the BSs. These  results  highlight  that the design  of EE–MIMO  communications conceived for multi–user multi–cell networks is a fairly open research problem. In fact, many system parameters have to be

 

considered, such as the bandwidth, the transmit power, the number of active transmit/receive antennas, the number of active users, etc., which all contribute to the fundamental transmit power vs. circuit power dissipation and multiplexing gain vs. inter–user interference trade–offs. As a result, while the SE advantages of MIMO communications are widely recognized, the EE potential of MIMO communications for cellular networks is not well understood. Hence, new air–interface transmission techniques  have  to be developed  that are capable  of improving  SE and EE at the same  time by at least  an order  of magnitude.

 

Conventional MIMO communications take advantage of all the antennas available at the transmitter by simultaneously transmitting  multiple  data  streams from  all  of  them.  Thus,  all  transmit–antennas  are  active  at  any  time  instance.  By appropriately choosing the transmission/precoding  matrices, both multiplexing and transmit–diversity gains can be obtained using  MIMOs.  The  reason  behind  this  choice  is  that  simultaneously  activating  all transmit–antennas   results  in  SE optimization. Unfortunately, this choice does not lead to EE optimization. In fact, multiple RF chains at the transmitter are needed to be able to simultaneously transmit many data streams, each of them requiring an independent power amplifier that is known  to dissipate the majority  of the power  consumed  at the transmitter.  These  considerations  imply  that  a major challenge of next–generation  MIMO–aided cellular networks is the design of multi–antenna  transmission  schemes with a limited  number  of  active  RF  chains  aiming  for  reducing  the complexity,  to  relax  the  inter–antenna  synchronization requirements, and inter–channel interference, as well as the signal processing complexity at the receiver, whilst aiming for improving the EE.

 

In this context, single–RF MIMO design is currently emerging as a promising research field. The fundamental idea behind single–RF MIMO is to realize the gains of MIMO communications, i.e., spatial multiplexing and transmit–diversity, with the aid of many antenna–elements, of which only a few, possibly a single, activated antenna–elements (single–RF front–end) at the transmitter  at  any  modulation  instant.  The  rationale  behind  the  multi–RF  to single–RF  paradigm  shift  in MIMO  design originates from the consideration that large numbers of transmit–antennas (radiating elements) may be accommodated at the BSs (large–scale MIMO design), bearing in mind that the complexity and power consumption/dissipation of MIMO communications are mainly determined by the number of simultaneously  active transmit–antennas,  i.e., by the number of active RF chains.

 

Fueled by these considerations, SM has recently established itself as a promising transmission concept, which belongs to the single–RF large–scale MIMO wireless systems family, whilst exploiting the multiple antennas in a novel fashion compared to state–of–the–art  high–complexity  and power–hungry classic  MIMOs.  In simple  terms,  SM can be regarded  as a MIMO concept  that  possesses  a  larger  set  of  radiating  elements  than  the  number  of transmit–electronics.  SM–MIMO  takes advantage of the whole antenna–array at the transmitter, whilst using a limited number of RF chains. The main distinguishing feature  of  SM–MIMOs  is  that  they  map  additional  information  bits  onto  an  “SM  constellation  diagram”,  where  each constellation element is constituted by either one or a subset of antenna–elements. These unique characteristics facilitate for high–rate MIMO implementations  to have reduced signal processing and circuitry complexity, as well as an improved EE. Recent analytical and simulation studies have shown that SM–MIMOs have the inherent potential of outperforming many state–of–the–art  MIMO  schemes,  provided  that  a  sufficiently  large  number  of  antenna–elements  is  available  at  the transmitter, while just a few of them are simultaneously active.

 

In a nutshell, the rationale behind SM–MIMO communications design for spectral– and energy–efficient cellular networks is centered upon two main pillars: 1) Given the performance constraints, minimize the number of active antenna–elements in order to increase the EE by reducing the circuit power consumption at the transmitter (single–RF MIMO principle); 2) Given the implementation and size constraints, maximize the number of passive antenna–elements in order to increase both the SE and the EE by reducing the transmit power consumption (large–scale MIMO principle). This is realized by capitalizing on the multiplexing gain introduced by mapping additional bits onto the “SM constellation diagram”.

Motivation and Objectives:

Future wireless communication systems will undoubtedly be based on Cognitive radios (CR) in some form or fashion. Cognitive radios are an evolution of software-defined radios (SDR). While SDR’s can be intelligent radios, what sets cognitive radios apart from SDR is their ability to learn and be self-aware. Thus, a cognitive radio architecture must necessarily consist of modules that support these functionalities.

 

Self-awareness is achieved through spectrum knowledge acquisition, in part called the spectrum sensing. The role of signal processing and machine learning in spectrum knowledge acquisition and subsequent use of such acquired knowledge in decision-making and radio reconfiguration cannot be over- emphasized. In fact, one may argue that it is signal processing and machine learning that give rise to a cognitive and intelligent radio. These algorithms form the brain and brain functions of a cognitive radio while an SDR platform acts as the body of the radio. It is a timely topic to emphasize this aspect of cognitive radios and this tutorial is motivated by that.

 

The objective of this tutorial is to discuss cognitive radios from the perspectives of signal processing and machine learning. This emphasize will be used to highlight the potential of cognitive radio technology to go far beyond what has perhaps been considered so far in literature. Signal processing and machine learning solutions needed to realize this full potential of cognitive radios will be identified and candidate techniques will be discussed. A discussion of limitations of existing signal processing and machine learning techniques to meet the challenges posed by cognitive radios is expected to stimulate further research on these topics.

 

Abstract:

This tutorial discusses cognitive radios from the perspective of signal processing. A cognitive radio is defined as a “self-aware and self-reconfigurable SDR capable of learning”. A functional architecture that supports these capabilities will be introduced and role of signal processing and machine learning will be identified. The tutorial will be focused on particular signal processing problems that are unique to cognitive radios, in particular those that are associated with spectrum knowledge acquisition: Wideband spectrum scanning, wideband and robust spectrum sensing, compressive sensing, spectral activity detection, signal classification and identification. The unique aspects of these problems in the context of cognitive radios will be emphasized in order to appreciate the challenges to be overcome. Limitations of existing signal processing and machine learning approaches to meet these challenges will be pointed out before discussing in detail both classical statistical signal processing solutions and novel techniques that incorporate machine learning algorithms.

The tutorial will give a comprehensive understanding of machine learning theory in a unified setting that will highlight its relevance and applications to cognitive radios and cognitive radio networks. The tutorial will highlight both promise of existing machine learning techniques as well as their limitations, in the context of cognitive radios, helping to calibrate research expectations and encourage further research on learning techniques specifically suitable for cognitive radios and networks.

 

Graduate students will particularly benefit by attending this tutorial due to the opportunity to see how adaptive and learning techniques developed in widely differing fields have come to form the so-called machine learning. The tutorial will highlight the underlying similarities and differences among different learning mechanisms helping the audience to see them all in a unified setting. The discussion on limitations of existing learning techniques when applied to cognitive radios will encourage further research on machine learning approaches for cognitive radios.
