Higher education credits: 6. Grading scale: UG. Level: A (Second level). Language of instruction: The course will be given in English. Compulsory for: MWIR2. Optional for: E4, E4ks. Course coordinator: Fredrik Rusek, fredrik.rusek@eit.lth.se, Inst för elektro- och informationsteknik. Recommended prerequisits: Project in Wireless Communication, part 1, ETI031 Radio, ETT051 Digital Communications, ETI051 Radiosystems. Assessment: Written report and oral presentation of the project work. Home page: http://www.eit.lth.se/course/eitn20.

Aim
The aim is to, through project work, give a comprehensive view of how the different building blocks in a wireless communication system work and interact. The students should after the course be able to simulate a communication system built from different sub-blocks including both the physical layer and basic control mechanisms. They should thereby get a good understanding of how the performance of a communication system can be evaluated through simulations and how these simulations can be used in the system design process.

Knowledge and understanding
For a passing grade the student must

Skills and abilities
For a passing grade the student must

Judgement and approach
For a passing grade the student must

Have a comprehensive view of how the different sub-blocks in a wireless communication link interact with other.

Feel confident in the ability to understand, analyse and describe the properties of a communication system in order to evaluate and verify their performance.

Contents
The main part of the course is a simulation project where the students in groups analyse, implement, simulate and test a communication system. The project requires that knowledge from other courses in the same area is combined and contains literature studies of both recommended and external material, implementation, simulation and test. The lectures and exercises work like a direct introduction to the project, while the main part of the course consists of project work. At the end of the course the project is disseminated both orally and through a project report.

Literature
Project description, that contains a list of (project dependent) recommended literature, provided by the department.
