5 | | Using the METIS II 5G Visualization for simulation of an urban environment, time-variant attenuation (path loss) traces can be generated to approximate real world situations. These traces can then be used on an attenuator matrix based test bed, such as [wiki:~~foo~~ Sandbox 4], for tightly controlled experiments with various protocol and connection methodologies. An extension to the simulator is available to generate these trace files through the selection of objects of interest (pedestrians, cars, base stations, etc.) and calculation of distance and occlusion based free space path loss at regular intervals. Note that these calculations do not take into account multi-path or sources of noise. |
