Signal Processing and Wireless Transmission Lab

This is a laboratory and experimental course in the field of signal processing and wireless communications. Most of the activity is performed in the laboratories, where students can setup experiments regarding signal analysis and wireless transmissions on Digital Signal Processors (DSP) or Universal Software Radio Peripherals (USRPs). Few introductory lectures are given to introduce the lab experiences. One of the goals of the course is to foster the communication skills and the ability to work in groups.

Signal Processing and Wireless Transmission Lab

The course offers the student the possibility to deepen and put in practice the knowledge on physical layer functions of wireless communication systems as well as the signal and image Processing techniques. The lab sessions will be preceded by lectures to describe the experiments that will be performed and the procedure to implement them. The course will provide knowledge of: - the architecture of Digital Signal processing (DSP) Systems - the fundamentals on signal and image compression - some algorithms of digital signal processing and their implementation methods - structure of Software Defined Radio (SDR) platforms - the methods for wireless communication systems design and prototyping The student will acquire the ability to: - develop appropriate signal-processing algorithms and implement them on a DSP - implement on suitable hardware/software platforms some of the blocks of the studied wireless communication standards The ability to apply the gained knowledge will be verified from lab reports, and their discussion.

Signal Processing and Wireless Transmission Lab

The course requires a background on digital transmission and signal theory. Some background on the basic concepts regarding signal processing, and wireless is also useful, although these concepts will be reviewed during the course. Good skills in common programming languages, such as C/C++ and Matlab, are required.

Signal Processing and Wireless Transmission Lab

Students take classes and laboratories focusing only on the two proposed areas: 1. Signal and Image Processing laboratory (3 CFU) 2.Wireless transmissions laboratory (3 CFU) for a total amount of 6 credits. Due to the Experimental laboratory course characteristics, the student presence is mandatory for all the foreseen lab sessions. The laboratory activities are organized at the educational Laboratory of the Electronics and Telecommunications Department (LED) and at the “Laboratorio Informatico di Base” (LAIB).

Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Practical lab skills test; Group essay;

Signal Processing and Wireless Transmission Lab

In order to verify the acquired laboratory experimental skills the students have to write reports and to discuss them during the oral examination. Students are required to write two reports on the laboratory experiences (one for every lab area). The report organization will be described during the lectures. Both reports must be delivered 1 week before the exam day. Every lab report will have an independent evaluation (maximum mark 30/30). Each student will be asked to discuss the content of the report during an oral exam. The oral exam is individual or in groups, and students will be asked to answer questions about both the practical and the theoretical parts of the course (maximum mark 30/30) The final grade will be the average between the evaluations of the two laboratory reports and the oral examinations. The grading criteria are the following: - appropriate choice and application of the experimental methodology/algorithms - report clearness and completeness. - appropriate use of the technical terms - completeness of the discussion of the obtained experimental results
