Summary: 
The acquisition of accurate channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT) is a difficult task in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Partial CSIT is a more realistic assumption, especially for high-mobility mobile users (MUs) whose channel varies very rapidly. In this letter, we propose a MIMO two-way relaying (MTWR) scheme, in which the communication between the BS and a high-mobility MU is assisted by other low-mobility MUs serving as relays. This produces a beamforming effect that can significantly improve the performance of the high-mobility MU, especially for a large number of MUs and unreliable CSIT.
