Abstract: Paper Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) is a technique which is now being widely used for wireless communication techniques such as 4G LTE. MIMO uses multiple antennas at the transmitter as well as at the receiver side in order to improve spectral efficiency although it increases the system complexity. Multipath propagation, which is the drawback for wireless communication, is used as an advantage in MIMO. This paper presents a model of Adaptive MIMO system in Simulink. The system adapts to specific transmit and receive diversity depending on the frame error rate. The proposed system uses 4 transmitting and receiving antennas, the number of antennas change as per the adaptation algorithm. The data is sent in the form of frames with each frame carrying the desired number of bits. Here, we have implemented the Orthogonal Space-Time Block Coding (OSTBC) scheme in a MATLAB Simulink model and implemented an adaptive algorithm to change the quantity of transmitting and receiving antennas depending on the frame error rate (FER) value. 
Keywords: MIMO, 4G LTE, Adaptive, Frame Error Rate (FER).
