Variable-rate ultra-reliable and low-latency communication for industrial automation

Ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) is an increasingly important aspect of wireless communications in the 5th generation mobile networks (5G) era, specifically in the context of wireless mission-critical communications for factory automation. This paper proposes a pilot-assisted variable rate URLLC scheme for the downlink (DL) of a factory automation network ...

  • Marc M.
  • Paolo Manfredi

High-speed communication over mutually coupled channels can be severely affected by intersymbol interference (ISI) and crosstalk (XT). Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) equalization is known to mitigate both ISI and XT, but requires accurate channel information at the receiver (RX) and/or transmitter (TX) when the channel is stochastic. However, since adjusting the ...
