For the design of dependable and efficient wireless sensor networks it is essential to estimate the achievable packet reception rate (PRR) in the deployment environment. Making such estimation is not trivial as packet delivery success depends on the level of interference present in the deployment area. In this work we show that it is possible to obtain a meaningful representation of the expected interference levels at the target location by measuring the probability distribution function of… CONTINUE READING
