An Energy Efficient Decoding Scheme for Nonlinear MIMO-OFDM Network using Reservoir Computing
Reservoir computing (RC) is attracting widespread attention in several signal processing domains owing to its nonlinear stateful computation. It deals particularly well with time-series prediction tasks and reduces training complexity over recurrent neural networks. It is also suitable for hardware implementation whereby device physics are utilized in performing data processing. In this paper, the RC concept is applied to modeling a Multiple-Input Multiple-Output Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) system. Due to the harsh propagation environment, the transmitted signal undergoes severe distortion that must be compensated for at the receiver. The nonlinear distortion introduced by the power amplifier at the transmitter further complicates this process. An effective channel estimation scheme is therefore required. In this paper, we introduce a MIMO-OFDM channel estimation scheme utilizing Echo State Network (ESN). Echo State Networks are powerful recurrent neural networks that can predict time-series very well. They acts as a black-box for system modeling purposes and models nonlinear dynamic systems efficiently. Simulation results for the bit error rate of the nonlinear MIMO-OFDM system show that the introduced channel estimator outperforms commonly used channel estimation schemes.
