Coping With CDMA Asynchronicity in Compressive Sensing Multi-User Detection
The growing field of Machine-to-Machine communication requires new physical layer concepts to meet future requirements. In previous works it has been shown for a synchronous CDMA transmission that Compressive Sensing (CS) detectors are capable of jointly detecting both activity and data in Multi-User Detection (MUD). However, many practical applications show some degree of asynchronicity. In order to reduce transmitter complexity, the authors propose an enhanced CS MUD that detects the delay in addition to activity and data. This solves synchronicity issues for scenarios with a known maximum delay, without requiring signaling or pre-compensation of asynchronicity.
