Title: Velocity estimation in cellular systems based on the time-frequency characteristics of the received signal
Author: Azemi, G; Senadji, B; Boashash, B
Abstract: Estimating the velocity of the mobile units is of great importance in hierarchical cellular systems since the satisfactory handover of mobiles to macro or micro-cells depends on its present velocity. In this contribution, the first moment of the instantaneous frequency (IF) of the received signal, is proposed as a new velocity estimator. The performance of this estimator in the presence of Rayleigh fading, log-normal shadowing, and additive white Gaussian noise is compared with the conventional zero crossing rate (ZCR) estimator. Simulations show that the performance of the proposed estimator is superior to that of the ZCR velocity estimator, in the presence of additive noise. Also it has been shown that the IF velocity estimator is robust in the presence of shadowing.
Description: This paper is an application of time-frequency analysis and IF estimation to a wireless application. (The most recent upgrade of the original software package that calculates Time-Frequency Distributions and Instantaneous Frequency estimators can be downloaded from the web site: www.time-frequency.net. This was the first software developed in the field, and it was first released publicly in 1987 at the 1st ISSPA conference held in Brisbane, Australia, and then continuously updated).
