Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) in combination with Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) can provide spectrally efficient and ISI free communication. Channel estimation is of great importance in order to recover the signal at the receiver side. Therefore accurate channel state information is essential for proper detection and decoding in MIMO-OFDM wireless systems. To estimate channel state information various types of techniques are being deployed in these systems. Accuracy and precision of channel estimation depends on the techniques used for the purpose of estimating channel state information. The more the accuracy of the technique, more will be the accurate performance of the system.
