Variations in MIMO-OFDM channel capacity due to random human movement in an indoor environment
Das Gupta, Jishu & Ziri-Castro, Karla I. (2009) Variations in MIMO-OFDM channel capacity due to random human movement in an indoor environment. In Loughborough Antennas & Propagation Conference 2009, 16-17 November 2009, Loughborough, UK.
Channel measurements and simulations have been carried out to observe the effects of pedestrian movement on multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) channel capacity. An in-house built MIMO-OFDM packet transmission demonstrator equipped with four transmitters and four receivers has been utilized to perform channel measurements at 5.2 GHz. Variations in the channel capacity dynamic range have been analysed for 1 to 10 pedestrians and different antenna arrays (2 × 2, 3 × 3 and 4 × 4). Results show a predicted 5.5 bits/s/Hz and a measured 1.5 bits/s/Hz increment in the capacity dynamic range with the number of pedestrian and the number of antennas in the transmitter and receiver array.
