Assumlng LhaL you are parL of a pro[ecL Leam ln a Moblle company, your pro[ecL ls focuslng on Lhe
followlng wlreless moblle communlcaLlons beLween a base sLaLlon and a moblle handseL.

llg 1 A baslc uemonsLraLlon of Wlreless Moblle CommunlcaLlon SysLem

Assume LhaL Lhe base sLaLlon ls LransmlLLlng a seL of blnary blLs x = [1 0 0 1 1] Lo Lhe moblle handseL.
llrsLly, aL Lhe LransmlLLer, Lhe 1elecom englneers wlll modu|ate Lhe blnary blLs uslng a D|g|ta|
Modu|ator. 1he purpose of Lhls (‘modu|at|on’) ls Lo make Lhe sequence easlly LransmlLLed and well
lnLerfaced Lo Lhe channel. 1he funct|on of a d|g|ta| modu|ator |s to map the d|g|t 0 to -1, and the
d|g|t 1 to 1, as lllusLraLed ln llg 1 (1).

When we LransmlL Lhe slgnal over Lhe channel, Lhe slgnal ls corrupLed by Lhe surroundlng nolse,
whlch can be modeled as a sequence of random real numbers. 1hen Lhe rece|ved s|gna| wlll be the
(e|ement-by-e|ement) sum of transm|tted s|gna| and no|se, l.e., [-1.8147 -0.0942 -0.8730 1.9134
1.6324], as shown ln llg 1 (2). 1hen Lhe power |eve| of the rece|ved s|gna| wlll be each recelved
elemenL Laklng power of 2, l.e., Þ=[1.8147^2, (-0.0942)^2, (-0.8730)^2, 1.9134^2, 1.6324^2].
1hen we represenL power level ln declbels (d8) by Laklng 10*log
of each elemenL ln Þ.

llrsLly, Load LransmlLLed_blLs.LxL and surround_nolse.LxL daLa lnLo MA1LA8. 1hen modu|ate Lhe blLs
Lo be elLher +1 or -1, sLrlcLly based on Lhe funcLlon of Lhe modulaLor: 0 becomes -1 and 1 sLays 1.
Þ|ot the modu|ated sequence (x-axls ls Lhe blL number varylng from 1 Lo 100, y-axls ls Lhe modulaLed
sequence) uslng red c|rc|e data marker (No L|nes are used |n th|s p|ot). Add x|abe| us|ng ‘8|t
Number’, and ylabel using ‘Modulated Signal Level’. Finally add title ‘transmitted signal’.

Ç1b) CompuLe Lhe recelved slgnal by summlng Lhe modulaLed sequence and Lhe surroundlng nolse.
1hen we perform Lhe demodu|at|on process:
llrsL, leL us “demap” Lhe recelved slgnal (i.e., use ‘-1’ to represent negative recelved slgnal, use ‘+1’
Lo represenL poslLlve one). 1hen we compare Lhls sequence wlLh modu|ated sequence from Ç1a.
Compare boLh sequences and flnd how many places ln Lhe Lwo sequences are dlfferenL. 1hen use
fpr|ntf w|th ¼d to pr|nt out th|s d|fference, and start a new ||ne after the pr|nt out.

Ç1c) CompuLe Lhe power |eve| of Lhe recelved slgnal ln declbels (d8). ÞloL the power |eve| |n a
f|gure (x-axls ls Lhe blL number varylng from 1 Lo 100, y-axls ls Lhe power level) us|ng b|ack dot data
marker and b|ack so||d ||ne. In this plot, add labels (‘8|t Number’ and ‘Þower Leve|’ are xlabel and
ylabel, respectively). Then add title ‘kece|ved Signal Power Level’. llnally compuLe Lhe mean of
power |eve| (d8s) of Lhe recelved slgnal. ÞrlnL ouL Lhls resulL uslng fprlnLf command and Lhe prlnL-ouL
formaL should be a f|oat|ng po|nt number w|th two dec|ma|s and start a new ||ne afLer Lhls prlnL ouL.
