Abstract

Ultrasonic transducers can be used to transmit acoustic signals through metallic guides such as buried or submerged pipes or through pipes used in building infrastructure. In particular, our research focuses on low-rate communication under energy constrained situations, and targets maximizing energy efficiency, i.e., bits per Joule. A cross-layer approach to energy efficient design, accounting for both transmit power and signal processing power is suggested. Finally, bits-per-Joule capacity of this channel, based on experimentally measured channel responses, are determined numerically, and an optimized multi-tone frequency shift keying (MFSK) scheme is suggested at the end of this paper.
