Experimental Evaluation in Wireless Communications

The importance of measurement results is often undervalued in signal processing and in particular in the wide application fields of wireless transmissions. This special issue will bring together research results obtained by measurements explaining shortcomings in current state of the art modeling and understanding of wireless communication systems.
