Contention-based Grant-free Transmission with Independent Multi-pilot Scheme

by   Zhifeng Yuan, et al.

Contention-based grant-free transmission is very promising for future massive machine-type communication (mMTC). In contention-based transmission, the random pilot collision is a challenging problem. To solve this problem, multiple pilots scheme is used to reduce the pilot collision probabliltiy. However, the existing work on multiple pilots relies on the low correlation of spatial channels, limiting its applicability. In this paper, an independent multi-pilot scheme is proposed, which utilizes the diversity of multiple pilots and is not limited by the spatial correlation. The receiver employs interference cancellation for both data symbols and multiple pilots to ensure the performance. The simulation results also show that the proposed independent multi-pilot scheme can significantly improve the BLER performance and increase the number of simultaneous access users.
