Artificial Intelligence in Wireless Communicationsby Thomas W Rondeau
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Rondeau (Institute for Defense Analyses' Center for Communications Research at Princeton) and Bostian (electrical and computer engineering, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State U.) describe and explain the components and architecture of "cognitive radios," i.e. wireless communication devices with software that can dynamically select spectrum, waveform design, time diversity, and spatial diversity options and may even have the ability to modify medium access protocols or change routing behavior based on network topology. Along the way, they discuss implementations of artificial intelligence to radio optimization, the principles of software defined radio, the genetic algorithm optimization method, case-based decision theory and decision-making, and controlling radio nodes in a network during reconfiguration of the physical layer waveform.

This cutting-edge resource offers practical overview of cognitive radio ? a paradigm for wireless communications in which a network or a wireless node changes its transmission or reception parameters. The alteration of parameters is based on the active monitoring of several factors in the external and internal radio environment. This book offers a detailed description of cognitive radio and its individual parts. Practitioners learn how the basic processing elements and their capabilities are implemented as modular components. Moreover, the book explains how each component can be developed and tested independently, before integration with the rest of the engine. Practitioners discover how cognitive radio uses artificial intelligence to achieve radio optimization. The book also provides an in-depth working example of the developed cognitive engine and an experimental scenario to help engineers understand its performance and behavior.
