Joint TTCM-VLC-Aided SDMA for Two-Way Relaying Aided Wireless Video Transmission

Aljohani, Abdulah Jeza, Ng, Soon Xin, Maunder, Robert G. and Hanzo, Lajos (2013) Joint TTCM-VLC-Aided SDMA for Two-Way Relaying Aided Wireless Video Transmission At 2013 IEEE 78th Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC Fall), United States. 02 - 05 Sep 2013. (doi:10.1109/VTCFall.2013.6692262).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


An iterative Joint Source and Channel Coded Mod-
ulation (JSCCM) scheme is proposed for robust video transmission over two-way relaying channels. The system advocated was designed for improving the throughput, reliability and coverage area compared to that of conventional one-way relaying schemes. We consider a two-user communication system, where the users exchange their information with the aid of a twin-antenna Relay Node (RN). For each user the proposed lossless video scheme is comprised of a Variable Length Code (VLC) encoder and two Turbo Trellis Coded Modulation (TTCM) encoders one at the Source Node (SN) and one at the RN. The spatio-temporal redundancy of the video sequence is exploited for reducing
the iterative decoding complexity. The decoding convergence
behaviour of the decoder as well as the power sharing ratio
between the two SNs and the RN are characterized with the aid of EXtrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts. Our proposed scheme exhibits an SNR gain of 9 dB compared to the noncooperative scheme, when communicating over Rayleigh fading channels.
