  • Data Transmission and Integrity

    This chapter distinguishes between error detection and error correction. It shows calculation of the bit error probabilities for a simple channel coding scheme. The chapter helps the reader to understand the working of algorithms for block error detection and block error correction. It explains the operation of convolutional coding, including path‐search algorithms. The chapter discusses private key encryption, key‐exchange methods, and public‐key encryption. It reviews two useful concepts in modeling data transmission integrity. These are probability concepts and integer arithmetic. Calculations for data transfer integrity checking, and newer approaches to data security and encryption, depend on integer arithmetic in general and modulo arithmetic in particular. The chapter introduces the key concept of the bit error rates and relates it to the system overall, the transmitted signal power, and the external noise encountered.

The chapter also explores the key requirements for audio encoders and the building blocks that go to make up an audio encoding system. It reviews some of the notions of probability, which are useful in modeling errors in communication channels, as well as difference equations, which are used extensively in signal encoding. The chapter gives an overview of coding: Image Coding; Source Coding; and Speech and Audio Coding. It also discusses digital channel capacity.

  • Mobile Position Estimation Using Received Signal Strength and Time of Arrival in Mixed LOS/NLOS Environments

    In order to increase the time‐of‐arrival (TOA) estimation accuracy, it is often useful to exploit additional information, such as path attenuation or path loss, which can in principle be observed from the received signal strength (RSS). This chapter investigates the TOA estimation techniques for the hybrid RSS‐TOA localization in mixed line‐of‐sight (LOS)/non‐line‐of‐sight (NLOS) environments. It describes how the number of TOA measurements should be selected to reduce computation complexity while improving the localization performance. The chapter shows how to determine a mobile position from such sufficient TOAs while the error performance attains certain performance bounds. The results shared in the chapter help a system designer select the number of nodes that should be used in the process of localization and NLOS mitigation. The selection is based on a trade‐off between accuracy and computational complexity.

  • Random Signals

    This chapter provides an overview of integration of the Gaussian probability density function and the Q-function. It explains the weighted sum of random variables and properties of Gaussian variables. The chapter presents the central limit theorem and ensembles average, autocorrelation functions of random processes. It also explores statistical properties of additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). The chapter provides step-by-step code exercises and instructions to implement execution sequences. The MATLAB command randn(1,b) generates a 1×b vector whose elements are realizations of independent and identically distributed Gaussian random variables with zero mean and unit variance. The chapter summarizes the analytical relationship among the input, the output, and the impulse response of a linear system in the time domain. It is designed to help teach and understand communication systems using a classroom-tested, active learning approach.

  • Probability and Random Variables

    This chapter reviews uniform and Gaussian random variables (RVs). It describes the empirical probability density function (PDF) of RVs and provides its comparison with the theoretical PDF. Using MATLAB functions such as random(), rand(), and randn(), the authors generate various kinds of RVs. Although the built-in function histogram() is convenient for generating the empirical distribution, the chapter provides the detailed steps to obtain the distribution to gain an in-depth understating of the PDF concept. The MATLAB function randn, every time it is invoked, generates a sample of the Gaussian RV with zero mean and unit variance. The mean and the variance are calculated using numerical integration. The chapter also discusses Rayleigh fading model, which is one of the commonly encountered fading channel models in wireless communications. The chapter is designed to help teach and understand communication systems using a classroom-tested, active learning approach.

  • A Nonparametric Approach for River Flow Forecasting Based on Autonomous Neural Network Models

    This chapter presents an inductive learning procedure that combines several techniques to generate a fully data‐driven forecasting model. It considers a forecasting method based on appropriate techniques for controlling Artificial neural networks (ANNs) complexity with simultaneous selection of explanatory input variables via a combination of filter and wrapper techniques. Input selection is performed, without user intervention, by applying Chaos theory and Bayesian inference. The challenging problem of rainfall forecasting is employed for showing the robustness of the proposed technique in dealing with different time‐series dynamics. In nonlinear chaotic time‐series analysis, local models are developed via the application of an automatic clustering algorithm based on the rival penalized expectation‐maximization (RPEM) algorithm. Neural network models are estimated, without cross‐validation, relying on data partitioning and Bayesian regularization for complexity control. The proposed forecasting model has been successfully tested using rainfall data from six major hydrographic basins in Brazil.
