Wireless Communication Research Group


Welcome to home page of Wireless Communication Research Group.


The research at the Wireless Communication Research Group (WCRG) at MTU mainly focuses on physical layer of wireless communication, including

  • Smart Antennas:

    1. Adaptive Beam forming,

    2. MIMO Systems,

    3. Direction of Arrival (DoA) estimation.

  • Wireless Resource Allocation:

    1. Spectrum sharing in cellular networks,

    2. Spectrum sharing in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs).

  • OFDM Systems:

    1. Transmit Diversity,

    2. Source and block coding,

    3. Multi-carrier systems.

  • Channel Statistical Estimation and Modeling.

Members of WCRG, in collaboration with the Integrated Microsystems Enterprise (IME) and the Wireless Communications Enterprise (WCE), are working on implementation of the Wireless Local Positioning System (WLPS). Dr Alireza Zekavat, the Director of WCRG, has a patent pending on the WLPS system at MTU. The implementation project is funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant. 

Members of the WCRG are also involved in development of effective course for non-EE majors. This project has been undertaken by the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department and Dr. Zekavat and is funded by the NSF.
