Nolan Pearce MS Thesis Defense

April 16, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Name: Nolan Pearce Title: Downlink Transmit Beamforming: Single-Carrier Acoustic Communication in a Noisy Environment Date: 4/16/2024 Time: 2:00:00 PM Location: EXP-601A: Committee Members: 1. Prof. MIlica Stojanovic (Advisor) 2. Prof. Stefano Basagni 3. Prof. Josep Jornet 4. Dr. Dimitrios Koutsonikolas Abstract: Noisy wireless acoustic channels produce intersymbol interference (ISI) from multipath propagation. This interference may be reduced by equalization techniques but require computationally intensive receiver algorithms. Typically, beamforming methods are implemented at the uplink receiver to reduce complexity of equalization…
