AbstractThis study investigates the performance of energy detection (ED)-based spectrum sensing over two-wave with diffused power (TWDP) fading channels, which have been found to provide accurate characterisation for a variety of fading conditions. A closed-form expression for the average detection probability of ED-based spectrum sensing over TWDP fading channels is derived. This expression is then used to describe the behaviour of ED-based spectrum sensing for a variety of channels that include Rayleigh, Rician and hyper-Rayleigh fading models. Such fading scenarios present a reliable behavioural model of machine-to-machine wireless nodes operating in confined structures such as in-vehicular environments.

Wireless channel performance with topological antenna diversityAllen, Ben; Karadimas, Petros; University of Bedfordshire (University of Bedfordshire, 2012)Topological Antenna Diversity is achieved through exploitation of the Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) of the transmitted electromagnetic wave. Topological diversity has recently been proposed as a great potential of improving the spectral efficiency (capacity) of radio transmissions . OAM accounts for the phase front of the transmitted wave by providing independent phase states, thus, additional modes of propagation (degrees of freedom) resulting in independent simultaneous wireless radio links. OAM transmission has only very recently been applied to radio transmissions at much lower frequencies , , ,  and, as such, these experiments raise as many questions as answers. For example, what aspects are fundamentally new? How can we best exploit this fascinating technique for realistic wireless systems? What are the benefits of OAM transmissions compared to multiple input-multiple output (MIMO) systems in terms of both simplicity and performance improvement?
Generic stochastic modeling of vehicle-to-vehicle wireless channelsKaradimas, Petros; Matolak, David; University of Bedfordshire; University of South Carolina (Elsevier, 2014-08)We present a generic statistical characterization of the vehicle-to-vehicle (V–V) wireless channel by adopting a stochastic modeling approach. Our approach is based on the doubly underspread (DU) property of non-wide sense stationary uncorrelated scattering (non-WSSUS) wireless channels, with V–V channels pertaining to this category. DU channels exhibit explicit frequency and time intervals over which they are approximated as WSSUS. We call these intervals restricted time interval (RTI) and restricted bandwidth (RBW), and variations taking place inside them are characterized as small scale variations. Large scale variations take place outside RTI and RBW. In this paper, we focus on small scale variations, thus, our modeling finds its applicability within RTI and RBW. As practical V–V channels exhibit rapid temporal fluctuations due to the inherent mobility of transmitter (Tx), receiver (Rx) and surrounding scatterers (e.g., other vehicles), we analyze the relevant second order statistics characterizing temporal variability, namely, the a) temporal correlation function (CF) (or autocorrelation function (ACF)), b) power spectral density (PSD) (or Doppler spectrum), c) level crossing rate (LCR) and d) average fade duration (AFD). Our analysis considers three-dimensional (3-D) scattering at the Tx and Rx together with random scatterers' mobility. Illustrative examples demonstrate the usefulness and flexibility of our analysis, which is further validated by fitting the theoretical LCR to an empirical, obtained at a US interstate highway. We show that significant Doppler frequencies can arise due to scatterers' mobility exceeding the respective maximum and minimum values when considering only Tx and Rx mobility. Also scatterers' mobility causes more rapid temporal variations when it becomes more intense. The latter is also true when 3-D scattering at the Tx and/or Rx spreads over a greater range of angular sectors and becomes less directional.
