Motivated by applications in unsourced random access, this paper develops a novel scheme for the problem of compressed sensing of binary signals. In this problem, the goal is to design a sensing matrix A and a recovery algorithm, such that the sparse binary vector x can be recovered reliably from the measurements y = Ax + σz, where z is additive white Gaussian noise. We propose to design A as a parity check matrix of a low-density parity-check code (LDPC) and to recover x from the measurements y using a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm, which runs relatively fast due to the sparse structure of A. The performance of our scheme is comparable to state-of-the-art schemes, which use dense sensing matrices, while enjoying the advantages of using a sparse sensing matrix.
