Abtract: This deliverable presents WORTECS overall Proof of Concept (PoC), Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) provides by Oledcomm (OLD) and pureLiFi (PLF), Fibre Wireless Fiber proposes by University of Oxford (OXF) and Radio Frequency (RF) link defines by IHP (IHP). These different links are managed by Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) board achieved by IHP. Virtual Reality (VR) or Mixed Reality (MR) use case will be shown with the help of Video Converter (VC) board and Virtual Reality content from B<>COM (BCM). Propagation model first results will be also proposed by university of Las Palmas (ULP). The main issue of this document is to define the PoC main features and present prototypes V1 test results.

Deliverable D4.2: Radio communication prototype
Abtract: This deliverable presents the parts needed for demonstrating the radio system functionality, envisioned in the WORTECS project. Two radio demonstrators are planned. The first one should use 60 GHz analog frontends, due to unavailability of the 240 GHz frontends. The second should use 240 GHz analog frontends and reuse the baseband and MAC processor functionalities from the first demonstrator. In this deliverable the simulation results as well as the hardware in the loop results for the developed multi-gigabit baseband processor are shown. Further the implementation details of the developed real-time radio communication system are given. This deliverable also describes the HetNet system intended to be used in conjunction with the radio system and finally the Arctic Sea virtual reality platform is described.

Abtract:This deliverable studies the impact of the technological choices made on the first demonstrator on the user experiment. It present the results of tens of users that experiment the system in various conditions, in order to “quantify” the degradation this demo setup introduces compared to the reference VR setup.

Deliverable D4.1: Optical wireless communication prototype
Abtract:This deliverable describes the general architecture of the optical wireless communication (OWC) and fiber wireless fiber (FWF) prototypes with a focus on their different building blocks and interfaces. An instructions manual is also provided for both prototypes to give guidelines on how to interface them with the rest of the WORTECS system and how to safely operate them.

Deliverable D3.2: Common Analog and Digital Baseband Design for Flexible Radio and Optical Transceiver
Abtract:This deliverable focuses especially on radio and optical transmissions. The main issue of this document is to try to find a common architecture between the radio and optical transmitter in order to mutualize as much as possible the implementation.
Starting from the analysis of the propagation channel characteristics of both systems, we argue about the choice of the modulation format when also taking into account some material constraints issued from the hardware components. Then, Tx and Rx description and limitations of analog radio and optical parts are pointed out before describing the main elements composing the radio and optical baseband system physical layer. In conclusion, we propose three main possibilities for mutualizing the radio and optical transmitter platforms.
