Support Vector Machines Regression for MIMO-OFDM Channel Estimation

Anis Charrada


In this paper, we propose a robust highly selective nonlinear channel estimator for Multiple -Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system using complex Support Vector Machines Regression (SVR) and applied to Long Term Evolution (LTE) downlink under high mobility conditions .The new method uses the information provided by the pilot signals to estimate the total frequency response of the channel in two phases: learning phase and estimation phase. The estimation algorithm makes use of the reference signals to estimate the total frequency response of the highly selective multipath channel in the presence of non-Gaussian impulse noise interfering with pilot signals. Thus, the algorithm maps trained data into a high dimensional feature space and uses the Structural Risk Minimization (SRM) principle to carry out the regression estimation for the frequency response function of the highly selective channel. The simulations show the effectiveness of the proposed method which has good performance and high precision to track the variations of the fading channels compared to the conventional LS method and it is robust under high mobility conditions.
