Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we discuss the realization of index modulation in the space domain. First, we take a brief review of the pioneering space domain index modulation technique, namely spatial modulation (SM). Then, we propose the generalized pre-coding aided quadrature spatial modulation (GPQSM) scheme, which extends SM to the receiver side, and the virtual spatial modulation (VSM) scheme, which can be used as either a transmitter-side SM or a receiver-side SM scheme depending on the configuration of transceiver antennas. Finally, we discuss the application of space domain index modulation techniques by taking SM as a representative to cooperative communications.
