Mobile MIMO Testbeds and Demonstration

May 12, 2006  Proc. SPIE 6248, Wireless Sensing and Processing

Multiple Input – Multiple Output (MIMO) is a new communications paradigm which brings significant benefits to future communication systems. In contrast to conventional wireless communication systems, MIMO systems exploit the spatial diversity available in multipath propagation to create parallel channels within a common bandwidth. The multiple channels can be used for capacity enhancement, coverage improvement, lower radiated power spectral density, interference/jammer suppression, multi-beam communication and battery power savings. Research, development and exploitation of MIMO technology for tactical communication systems is significantly limited by lack of mobile, real-time MIMO testbeds to verify and validate extensive theoretical results. We report a 4×4 mobile, wideband, real-time MIMO-OFDM testbed designed and developed by the team of San Diego Research Center (SDRC) and Brigham Young University (BYU). Using this testbed we have successfully demonstrated the feasibility of peer-to-peer Mobile MIMO by closing 1000m links, at 50 mph speeds, at 12 bps/Hz spectral efficiency.

Method and system for passive wireless strain gauge

Issued Dec 10, 2010 US7849752

This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/960,997 filed Oct. 24, 2007.

The present disclosure is directed to the field of mechanical property sensing of an object using a gauge that can be read through a wireless connection. The mechanical property may relate to the deformation of an object. In a specific embodiment, the present disclosure includes a very small passive wireless strain gauge that translates strain to electrical capacitance, and then to a frequency shift in an RF carrier such that strain can be measured on surfaces typically found in hostile and inaccessible environments. It is useful in applications such as measuring the strain on a blade in a turbine engine where wired gauges are not practical or accessible.

Systems and methods for displaying a user interface

Issued Feb 21, 2021 US10909988

An electronic device includes a display, wherein the display is configured to present a user interface, wherein the user interface comprises a coordinate system. The coordinate system corresponds to physical coordinates. The display is configured to present a sector selection feature that allows selection of at least one sector of the coordinate system. The at least one sector corresponds to captured audio from multiple microphones. The sector selection may also include an audio signal indicator. The electronic device includes operation circuitry coupled to the display. The operation circuitry is configured to perform an audio operation on the captured audio corresponding to the audio signal indicator based on the sector selection.
