Datasets

Below are the different datasets which were created in the projects where I have been involved. The link to download the data is given in the corresponding links.

Massive MIMO Channel Estimations Datasets

Massive multiple input and multiple output (mMIMO) is a critical component in upcoming 5G wireless deployment as an enabler for high data rate communications. mMIMO is effective when each corresponding antenna pair of the respective transmitter-receiver arrays experiences an independent channel. We publish a simulation dataset containing CSI information of mmWave band with a 32-element array base station, and a user equipment with a 4-element array, collected in MATLAB. (More Details)

Multimodal Fusion for NextG V2X Communications Datasets

The V2X communication spans a variety of applications such as collision avoidance safety systems, traffic signal timing, safety alerts to pedestrians, and real-time traffic. In all of the above applications, the communication system must meet the requirement of either low latency or high data rate for safety or quality of service reasons. we publish different real-world datasets to the research community for using non-RF data such as camera images, LiDAR to solve different RF related problems to meet those requirements. (More Details)

ICARUS Datasets

ICARUS presents a machine learning based framework that offers choices at the physical layer for inference with inputs of (i) in-phase and quadrature (IQ) samples only, (ii) cycle-frequency features obtained via cyclostationary signal processing (CSP), and (iii) fusion of both, to detect the underlay DSSS signal and its modulation type within LTE frames. We release three real-world datasets that include signals captured in cellular bands in the wild and the NSF POWDER testbed for advanced wireless research (PAWR). (More Details)
