Channel Tracking With Zero Padding Scheme for STBC-OFDM System Under Fast Fading Environment

Free registration required

Executive Summary

An inter-vehicle communication system is highly advantageous for driving safety support systems, such as collision avoidance systems at intersections. In an inter-vehicle communication system, a channel-tracking scheme is essential to achieve reliable wireless communication under the fast fading environment caused by surrounding vehicles. For coherent detection, decision feedback is a well-known channel-tracking scheme. In this scheme, replica signals are generated and channel estimation is performed by using the replica signals. However, because channel estimation performance depends on the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) at symbol time, decision feedback errors occur by the lower SNR caused by fast fading.
