Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) low complexity receiver which utilizes the compressive sensing detection for Spatial Modulation in large scale MIMO system in order to reduce the system complexity. In conventional MIMO system; huge amount of antennas is used at both ends to exploit the multipath propagation. This system maximizes the throughput performance and data rates are increased but only at the cost of high hardware complexity and increased power-consumption. Spatial Modulation Matching Pursuit (SMMP) is the proposed enhanced CS technique used for the improvement of detection performance. Hence, this paper reviews recent research findings concerning normalized Compressive Sensing (CS) detection algorithm, used for Spatial Modulation (SM) in massive MIMO, to lowers the signal processing complexity, which in result improves the energy efficiency of system against that of conventional MIMO system.This strategy is achieved by involving additional structures and sparsity in which a single transmitter antenna or a subset of it is turned on at each case to transmit a certain data. The subset of antenna which is turned on for transmission depends on approaching data bits. Therefore, the total increase in the spectral efficiency of the system is given as base-two logarithm of whole antennas at the transmitter. It reduces the signal processing load at base station and doesn’t depend upon any synchronization between transmitters. The Spatial Modulation Matching Pursuit used prevents the Inter Channel Interference (ICI) of the system which in result improves the Bit Error Rate (BER) performance than the typical MIMO system.
