In multi user multiple input multiple output systems, spatial precoding is typically employed as an interference cancellation technique. This technique, however, requires accurate channel state information at the transmitter and limits the mobility of the mobile station (MS). Instead of spatial precoding, this letter implements collaborative interference cancellation (CIC) for interference suppression. In CIC, neighboring MSs share their received signals without decoding and equivalently increase the number of received antennas. The performance is evaluated through a field experiment using a vehicle that is equipped with seven MSs and moves around an urban area.
