In 2000, the Signal Processing and Speech Communication Laboratory (SPSC Lab) of Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) was founded as a research and education center in nonlinear signal processing and computational intelligence, algorithm engineering, as well as circuits & systems modeling and design. It covers applications in wireless communications, speech/audio communication, and telecommunications.

Deep Convolutional Neural Networks for Massive MIMO Fingerprint-Based Positioning [link]

This work provides an initial investigation on the application of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for fingerprint-based positioning using measured massive MIMO channels. When represented in appropriate domains, massive MIMO channels have a sparse structure which can be efficiently learned by CNNs for positioning purposes. We evaluate the positioning accuracy of state-of-the-art CNNs with channel fingerprints generated from a channel model with a rich clustered structure: the COST 2100 channel model. We find that moderately deep CNNs can achieve fractional-wavelength positioning accuracies, provided that an enough representative data set is available for training.
