In future wireless communications, groundbreaking schemes are needed to satisfy high performance requirement. In order to realize such a paradigm shift in the field of communications, an interdisciplinary point of view is important in our researches. One sometimes recognizes that a problem is essentially the same as a problem that has been already solved in another research field, while there is no superficial relationship between the two problems. Our goal is to realize novel communication schemes by applying such achievements on the other fields to the field of communcations. Also, we are aiming to deliver our achievements on communications to different research fields in order to contribute to academic and industrial progress in wide fields including communications.

Theme1:Massive MIMO


Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are a wireless communication system that uses multiple transmit and receive antennas for information transmission. In massive MIMO systems, base stations equip a large number of antennas to support many users simultaneously. Conventional receivers cannot be used to process all user signals jointly and efficiently. In our laboratory, we are aiming to construct efficient reception schemes for massive MIMO on the basis of an iterative method called belief propagation and of its modification proposed in the field of compressed sensing.

Theme2:Spatial Modulation


The signals 1, -1, or 0 (no transmission) is transmitted in spatial modulation, while 1 or -1 is sent in conventional modulation. Since information is conveyed by signal 0 (no transmittion), spatial modulation is an energy-efficient transmission scheme. A problem is an efficient blind estimation of the positions at which signals 0 have been sent. In our laboratory, we utilize a similarity between the problem and that considered in the field of compressed sensing to construct efficient reception schemes.

Theme3:Multiuser Decoding


Decoding and multiuser detection have been separately developed in coding theory and communication theory, respectively. In multiuser decoding, on the basis of a combination of the two fields, joint detection and decoding are performed to realize a significant improvement in decoding performance. In our laboratory, we are aiming to improve the performance of multiuser decoding by applying spatial coupling, which was an idea to improve the performance of belief-propagation-based decoding up to the optimal performance.
