Assessment Specifications: A Detailed Review of Spatial Modulation and Simulation
This is an individual assessment. Therefore, it is expected that your report cannot be similar to reports from other students.
Spatial modulation (SM) is a transmission technique recently developed for the fifth generation (5G) mobile communication networks. It uses multiple antennas in which a block of data symbols are mapped and transmitted using one active antenna. The objective of the assessment is for each student to
1. Undertake a detailed review of 5G modulation schemes and then to focus on spatial modulation (SM). Reviewed papers must be predominantly from the IEEEXplore and ebooks which you have access to through the MIT library. Other sources such as Science Direct, Springer and ACM publications may be used but not the Wikipedia. Papers used in the review should come from journal, conferences and ebooks, not the open Internet.
2. Model, analyse and synthesize spatial modulation techniques for 5G radio systems
3. Simulate using Matlab or any other programming language a spatial modulation scheme, showing results and graphics with source code attached to your report as appendix
4. Submit a written and typed report using fluent communication on spatial modulation schemes. The report must include a minimum of 15 reference articles on SM. The more the number of reference papers shown in the review the better for obtaining more marks.
Note: A rigorous search for plagiarism or academic misconduct will be undertaken on your submission.
The above table is meant for your guide. It should not be a part of your report. Download the assignment cover page. It is available on Moodle; fill it and use it as the cover page for your report.
Criteria Explanation Marks
Detailed review of 5G modulation schemes and then focus on spatial modulation (SM) Review of modulation schemes proposed for 5G mobile networks followed with detailed review of spatial modulation schemes as found in the IEEEXplore, Science direct or any other journal but NOT Wikipedia. 20
Modelling and analysis and synthesis of spatial modulation techniques for 5G radio systems Show how to model spatial modulation, how symbols are formed, how antennas are selected including signal detection at the receiver. 25

spatial modulation scheme, showing results and graphics with code language. Results from simulation with figures and source code are required
Clarity of explanation on spatial modulation concepts Technical explanations should be clear, coherent and concise 10
Fluent communication and report on spatial modulation schemes to include a minimum of 15 references on SM A written report typed in MS Word with equations, figures, tables and IEEE references style. A small number of reviewed papers will show that you have not undertaken a detailed review of the topic. In text referencing and reference list must be shown. 20
