Massive MIMO - Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output

Reliable wireless communication links are a pre-requisite for connected autonomous vehicles enabling cooperation and connecting vehicles to a mobile-edge cloud computing center at the base-station location. We investigate the basic concept of massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems where the base station is equipped with 30...100 antenna elements while the mobile station uses a single antenna. This setup allows to focus the transmit energy of the base station by coherent superposition at the location of the mobile station removing the impairments of the fading process.
