As multipath components (MPCs) are experimentally observed to appear in clusters, cluster-based channel models have been focused in the wireless channel study. However, most of the MPC clustering algorithms for MIMO channels with delay and angle information of MPCs are based on the distance metric that quantifies the similarity of two MPCs and determines the preferred cluster shape, greatly impacting MPC clustering quality. In this paper, a general framework of Mahalanobisdistance metric is…

A de-noising MPC-clustering framework based on a new Space-Transformed Fuzzy c-Means (ST-FCM) algorithm and the fusion of channel measurement snapshots is proposed, which has a better performance in clustering accuracy than the current methods.
A Kernel-Power-Density-Based Algorithm for Channel Multipath Components Clustering
A kernel-power-density (KPD)-based algorithm is proposed for MPC clustering that enables applications in multiple-input-multiple-output channels with no prior knowledge about the clusters, such as number and initial locations and can be used for cluster-based channel modeling.
A Framework for Automatic Clustering of Parametric MIMO Channel Data Including Path Powers
A framework that is able to cluster multi-path components (MPCs), decide on the number of clusters, and discard outliers is introduced, and the K-means algorithm is used, which iteratively moves a number of cluster centroids through the data space to minimize the total difference between MPCs and their closest centroid.

This communication proposes a novel clustering algorithm based on the kurtosis measure which, in related work, has been employed precisely for its channel independence and shows the proposed algorithm to deliver better results and is inherently robust to different environments.
Automated Identification of Clusters in UWB Channel Impulse Responses
The tendency for the multipath components (MPCs) in wideband channel impulse responses (CIRs) to appear in clusters that are characterized by their own arrival and decay rates was first observed over

The results show that the MUSIC technique can be used to provide similar results with those of the SAGE algorithm at a time consumption significantly reduced and is less sensitive to the scan configuration and more suitable for scenarios of high signal-to-noise power ratio compared with the SAGES algorithm.
The COST259 Directional Channel Model-Part I: Overview and Methodology
A model for mobile radio channels that includes consideration of directions of arrival and is thus suitable for simulations of the performance of wireless systems that use smart antennas is described, based on the specification of directional channel impulse response functions.
