Whitepaper: A Cross-Correlation Approach for Improved Timing Estimation in OFDM Broadcasting Systems

by American Institute of Aeronautics and AstronauticsJan 01, 2008

This research paper by American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics focuses on the timing synchronization of the received Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing OFDM signal, for detecting reliably the start of the OFDM frame and positioning accurately the FFT window. An important category of approaches that are available in the literature, is the one where a null-symbol is used to detect the beginning of the frame. The null-symbol approach is suitable only for continuous transmissions.


Whitepaper: Client-Server Java Programming for Wireless Mobile Robots

by American Institute of Aeronautics and AstronauticsJan 01, 2008

The concept of remotely controlling a vehicle was first used for military purposes by German motor-boats to ram enemy ships in World War I (WWI). A client-server application for the remote control of a wireless mobile robot is described. The application requires an onboard computer running a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) on the vehicle. The mobile robot is the client, which is controlled by the server. The server can be any desktop machine or another mobile robot. This paper shows how mobile robots
