A Body-Shadowing Model for Indoor Radio Communication Environments

  title={A Body-Shadowing Model for Indoor Radio Communication Environments},
  author={Shuichi Obayashi and Jens Zander},
Deterministic propagation prediction methods proposed for indoor radio are useful for estimating the average propagation loss in real environments, which usually have complicated geometries. On the other hand, these methods generally fail to accommodate human body shadowing, which is a significant propagation effect in indoor picocells. Several empirical models to describe body shadowing have been reported. However, to our knowledge, no appropriate model that can be used in combination with… CONTINUE READING
