Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The Bluetooth standard has a lax specification for parameters such a carrier frequency and modulation index. Research has shown that significant system degradation can occur even when operating within the permitted limits. Hence, a high-integrity Bluetooth receiver will need to compensate for this mismatch. Where multipath propagation exists, it will undermine parameter synchronising algorithms, and taking into account the limited burst lengths of Bluetooth packets, it is essential that equalisation occurs fast enough so as to give algorithms downstream sufficient time to converge, and minimise information loss. The coloured nature of Bluetooth signals and the possibility of a carrier frequency offsets, limit the choice of equaliser algorithms that can guarantee fast convergence. As a remedy, in this paper we propose the normalised sliding window constant modulus algorithm (NSWCMA), and determine regularisation factors that will optimise speed. We also show that the NSWCMA can outperform the minimum mean square error solution in terms of bit error ratio.
