The Research Project

For 5G systems, massive MIMO (multiple antennas) are deployed.  When fading is fast, Doppler shift also tend to be present, and channel models are complex under these conditions.  This project aims to develop models that are computationally efficient, as well as realistic for the simulation of communication systems deployed over such channels.  The aim is to develop computer code that will provide realistic scenario testing under complex communication systems simulation conditions.
