Grundlagen der digitalen Informationsübertragung

2. Auflage 2013, ISBN: 978-3-8348-1784-6, ISBN eBook: 978-3-8348-2214-7

  • Übersicht
    Die Informations- und Kommunikationstechnik hat in den letzten Jahrzehnten enorm an Bedeutung gewonnen. Umso wichtiger wird die Vermittlung von Grundlagenwissen in der digitalen Informationsübertragung. Aktuelle Forschungsgebiete wie Mehrantennensysteme (MIMO-Systeme), Mehrnutzerkommunikation und Netzwerkcodierung basieren auf informationstheoretischen Ansätzen, aber auch auf Kenntnissen der Codierungstheorie, der Übertragungstechnik und der Schätzverfahren. Im Vordergrund dieses Lehrbuchs stehen leistungsfähige drahtlose Übertragungstechniken unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Mobilfunks. Die meisten Prinzipien und Verfahren sind aber auch in anderen Bereichen der digitalen Übertragungstechnik und verwandten Gebieten anwendbar. Durch Querverweise wird ein Zusammenhang zwischen Teilbereichen hergestellt und der Leser somit in die Lage versetzt, die wesentlichen Facetten der digitalen Informationsübertragung ganzheitlich zu erfassen. In der vollständig überarbeiteten und erweiterten 2. Auflage wurden aufstrebende Themen wie Netzwerkcodierung, ratenlose Codierung, Compressed Sensing, Ultra-Breitbandkommunikation, Software-Defined Radio und Cognitive Radio neu berücksichtigt. Aktuelle Themen wie Mehrnutzer-Informationstheorie, Rate-Distortion-Theorie, LDPC-Codes, iterative Decodierverfahren und zugehörige Analysemethoden, Superpositionsmodulation, Mehrträgerverfahren, Mehrantennensysteme und Interferenzunterdrückung wurden vertiefend behandelt.

Visible Light Communications

1st edition 2019, ISBN: 978-3-446-46206-9, E-Book: ISBN: 978-3-446-46172-7

  • Overview
    Visible Light Communication (VLC) is an emerging wireless data transmission technology. Light is used simultaneously for illumination as well as for communication and/or positioning purposes. If fully networked, dubbed Li-Fi, VLC systems complement Wi-Fi access points. VLC is an incident of optical wireless communications (OWC). OWC systems provide high data security, are license-free, and may substitute radio systems when these either fail or are not permitted. VLC technology enhances smart lighting infrastructure and Internet-of-Things (IoT) use cases. LED-based Car-to-X communication is an enabling platform towards autonomous driving.

    The textbook covers OWC applications, fundamentals of illumination engineering, channel modeling, optical intensity modulation schemes, VLC standardization efforts, the software-defined radio concept, selection criteria of photonic devices, fundamental circuit designs, and visible light positioning.

    The book is written for students in electrical and information engineering or adjacent areas, as well as for engineers, information scientists, and physicists in research and development.
