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.

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.

Examination details
