Bhaskar Rao is a space explorer, though he is no astronaut. The electrical engineer from UC San Diego`s Jacobs School of Engineering explores the “space frontier” that has opened up with the emergence of MIMO (multiple input multiple output) technologies for wireless communications. In MIMO systems, both transmitters and receivers contain multiple antennae, which means that space - and not just time - is in play when it comes to signal processing strategies for increasing data rates, reliability, users served, and other parameters in wireless communications networks.
