This toolbox is a MATLAB-based software package for the estimation of dynamic systems.
A wide range of standard estimation approaches are supported. These include the use of non-parametric, subspace-based and prediction-error algorithms coupled (in the latter case) with either MIMO state space or MISO polynomial model structures.
Additionally, some new approaches are included. These include the support for bilinear and other Hammerstein-Wiener non-linear structures, and the use of the expectation-maximisation (EM) algorithm for time and frequency domain estimation of state space structures.
This is a hardware device designed to be used in the design and testing of wireless MIMO communications systems. It is connected to a PC via USB 2.0 or ethernet and uses an on-board FPGA to allow implementation of algorithms in logic, together with provision for multiple radio modules.
This project is concerned with development of algorithms and hardware for high-speed model predictive control (MPC) solutions. Both linear and nonlinear MPC systems are considered.
Orthgonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM)
is core to emerging and future wireless systems. Of note,
802.16, 802.20 and 3GPP LTE all depend upon OFDM.
The goal of this project is to generate core expertise in
this area, publish in leading conferences and journals
while securing valuable IP for the project participants.
Numerous ASIC prototypes will result.
This project offers a collection of software routines for solving quadratic programming problems that can be written in this form
x* = arg min 0.5x'Hx + f'x convex cost
s.t. Ax = b, linear equality constraints,
Lx <= k, general linear inequality constraints,
l <= x <= u, bound constraints.
The routines are written in C and callable from Matlab using the standard syntax. State-of-the-art solvers are available.
Theoretical and empirical study of various problems in system identification. Particular attention is paid to robust estimation of Multivariable and Nonlinear systems, and to error quantification.
These projects are focussed on providing software solutions to assist the mapping of algorithmic solutions to actual implementations in hardware devices. This includes bit accurate modelling of numerical systems in limited precision, analysis of those simulations, and generation of test data for verification with hardware implementations in ASICs and FPGAs.
This project offers a suite of software routines that run under Matlab, which perform
various signal filtering and smoothing operations. This includes standard Kalman filtering
and Kalman smoothing routines.
This project develops quantifications for the frequency domain variance of prediction error system estimates. A key theme is to derive new approximations offering improved accuracy via the principles of reproducing kernel principles and orthonormal parametrizations.
Details of our attempt at the Wiener-Hammerstein Benchmark problem
This project derives information-theoretic bounds to the capacity (in
the Shannon sense) of multiterminal networks, and develops new coding
to increase transmission rates.
This project investigates and develops advanced radio resource
management techniques to support the deployment of small cells in
next-generation wireless access networks. Drawing upon the foundation
of optimization and game theories, this project will provide
distributed algorithms that effectively manage the severe and highly
random signal interference. It will also provide fundamental insights
into the design and analysis of wireless protocols in large
