Abstract

Some new properties of the chaotic signal have been implemented in communication system applications recently, which include the following. First, chaos is proven to be the optimal communication waveform in the sense of very simple matched filter being used to achieve maximum signal to noise ratio; second, the amount of information contained in a chaotic signal is unaltered by a wireless multipath channel; and third, chaos property can be used to resist multipath effect. All these support the application of chaos in a practical communication system. However, due to the broadband property of the chaotic signal, it is very difficult for a practical transducer or antenna to convert such a broadband signal into a signal that would be suitable for practical band-limited wireless channel. Thus, the use of chaos property to improve the performance of conventional communication system without changing the system configuration becomes a critical issue in communication with chaos. In this paper, chaotic baseband waveform generated by a chaotic shaping filter is used to show that this difficulty can be overcome. The generated continuous-time chaotic waveform is proven to be topologically conjugate to a symbolic sequence, allowing the encoding of arbitrary information sequence into the chaotic waveform. A finite impulse response filter is used to replace the impulse control in order to encode information into the chaotic signal, simplifying the algorithm for high-speed communication. A wireless communication system is being proposed using the chaotic signal as the baseband waveform, which is compatible with the general wireless communication platform. The matched filter and decoding method, using chaos properties, enhance the communication system performance. The bit error rate (BER) and computational complexity performances of the proposed wireless communication system are analyzed and compared with the conventional wireless systems. The results show that the proposed chaotic baseband waveform of our wireless communication method has better BER performance in both the static and time-varying wireless channels. The experimental results, based on the commonly used wireless open-access research platform, show that the BER of the proposed method is superior to the conventional method under a practical wireless multipath channel.
