At Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Lee Edwards has created a virtual lab for the graduate-level class “Introduction to Wireless Technology” using MATLAB and Simulink. By using a virtual laboratory rather than a traditional hardware laboratory environment, students not only get hands-on experience but they are able to explore and experiment with their ideas without stepping into a lab. Using these MathWorks tools, students develop a model of a wireless communications system and then use Simulink to model and simulate different wireless environments. Topics covered include digital modulation schemes, channel description and modeling, and noise & channel perturbations.
