The focus of this study is the performance of high-density truck platooning achieved with different wireless technologies for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications. Platooning brings advantages such as lower fuel consumption and better traffic efficiency, which are maximized when the inter-vehicle spacing can be steadily maintained at a feasible minimum. This can ...

Silicon Photonics Enabled Hyper-wideband RF Receiver With > 85% Instantaneous Bandwidth

IEEE We demonstrate the first-ever silicon photonics enabled hyper-wideband RF spread-spectrum link. A hybrid III/V-silicon photonic mode-locked laser encoded with a four-channel silicon photonic phase encoder is used to generate optical carriers that coherently demodulate a received RF signal spanning an instantaneous bandwidth greater than 85% of the center frequency ...

Enhancing performance of coherent OTDR systems with polarization diversity complementary codes

  • Awwad E.
  • Dorize C.

Monitoring the optical phase change over a fiber paves the way for a wide range of applications that induce fast strain variations as detection of vibration and acoustic signals. However, the quality of the estimated fiber channel response strongly depends on the method used to optically excite the optical fiber ...

Triple-clad photonic lanterns for mode scaling

© 2018 Optical Society of America We propose a novel triple-clad photonic lanterns for mode scaling. This novel structure alleviates the adiabatic tapering requirement for the fabrication of large photonic lanterns. A 10-mode photonic lantern with insertion losses ranging from 0.6 to 2.0 dB across all the modes and a ...

Fixed wireless access at mm/cm bands has been proposed for high speed broadband access to suburban residential customers, and the building penetration loss is a key parameter to be assessed. We report a measurement campaign at 28 GHz in a New Jersey suburban residential neighborhood for three representative single-family homes. ...

Maximum throughput scheduling for multi-connectivity in millimeter-wave networks

Multi-connectivity is emerging as promising solution to provide reliable communications and seamless connectivity at the millimeter-wave frequency range. Due to the obstacles that cause frequent interruptions at such high frequency range, connectivity to multiple cells can drastically increase the network performance in terms of throughput and reliability by coordination among ...

Over-The-air tests of high-speed moving LTE users in a reverberation chamber

© 1967-2012 IEEE. High-speed trains are nowadays a reality in most of the countries. Internet services and connectivity are required by the passengers on board using smartphones and laptops. Nevertheless, the higher the speed, the bigger the issues that operators have to face to implement mobility and to reduce the ...
