Abstract (Summary)

This paper is aimed at parametric Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) – Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) channel estimation that increases the spectrum efficiency of the wireless communication systems. OFDM technology has been widely used due to its high data rate and low multipath distortion. The estimation of channel for OFDM is required in vehicular environments and many other cutting-edge technology applications. To develop such reliable vehicular wireless communication systems, it is necessary to set up the standards and models of propagation channel with respect to the environment and scenarios. The proposed parametric scheme can accomplish super resolution by assessing the delays in arbitrary paths, making this scheme more suitable for wireless channels. The channel estimation precision is increased by using the spatial and temporal correlations in the wireless MIMO channel. The average pilot overhead for each antenna is reduced because of the temporal correlation of MIMO channels. Thus, the parametric scheme is promising for future wireless technologies as it accomplishes better spectral efficiency and better robustness for the multipath fading channels.
