Talk: Mikhail Ivanov (October 28, 2015 at 03:15 pm, LNT Seminar Room N2408)


On October 28, 2015 at 03:15 pm, Mikhail Ivanov from Chalmers University of Technology will be giving a talk in the LNT Seminar Room N2408 about "All-to-all Broadcast for Vehicular Networks Based on Coded Slotted ALOHA".

All-to-all Broadcast for Vehicular Networks Based on Coded Slotted ALOHA

Mikhail Ivanov

Coded slotted ALOHA (CSA) is an uncoordinated multiple access technique that promises throughputs close to those of coordinated multiple access methods. It was originally proposed for unicast transmission in satellite networks. The main idea is to exploit successive interference cancellation which, under certain assumptions, makes CSA very similar to codes on graphs. In this talk, I will describe how CSA can be used for all-to-all broadcast in vehicular networks. We will compare CSA with the carrier sense multiple access currently adopted for vehicular communications. We will discuss how the theory of codes on graphs helps to design good CSA schemes and how the design criteria need to be adapted to vehicular communications.


Mikhail Ivanov was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. He received his M.Sc. in Engineering and Technologies from St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University “LETI”, Russia, in 2009, and the degree of Licentiate of Engineering (Teknologie Licentiatexamen) from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2013. He is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree at the Department of Signals and Systems, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. His research interests include coded random access techniques for vehicular networks, as well as channel coding and modulation.
