Summary

The I-METRA project aims at enhancing and complementing the scope of the previous IST 1999-11729 METRA project. The main objective of METRA was to analyse the feasibility and evaluate the performance of introducing multi-element adaptive antennas into mobile terminals in combination with adaptive base station antenna arrays for UMTS. The scope of the I-METRA project is substantially enlarged to incorporate analysis, development and simulation of adaptive transmission technologies for multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) systems. The main emphasis is given to incorporating re-configurability capabilities in order to allow the radio network, including terminal and base stations, to adjust automatically to traffic, user and channel requirements. The project will investigate the potential implications of these technologies into Re-configurable Systems and Systems beyond 3G.
