3 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 3 Experiment setup Path loss versus distance Path loss versus frequency Power delay profile Matlab channel model code Outline

4 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 4 Model is Based on Over 500 Measurements Taken Around the Torso 9 Simulations were made along the height of the torso. Each simulation measured several positions around the torso. Measurement were spaced at least 4 cm or approximately ½ the center frequency wavelength. UWB pulse: 3-5 GHz Gaussian Pulse (10 dB bandwidth)

5 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 5 The measurements were divided up between four areas defined by angle. Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4 Area 1: 0°-50° Area 2: 50°-100° Area 3: 100°-150° Area 4: 150°-180° Channel parameters changed as signal travels around the body.

6 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 6 Small-scale fading averaged out to extract path loss versus distance. Measured data Small-scale fading removed (area 1 – area 4) Best fit path loss model Distance (m) Path loss (dB)

7 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 7 This path loss model is not the same as the classical path loss model. Path loss modelMSE Possible reasons Extreme close range Path loss mechanisms close to body are different

8 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 8 Body area channel was not frequency dependent in the 3-5 GHz band Distance (m) Path loss (dB) To be confirmed…

9 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 9 Power Delay Profiles were extracted according to a Guidelines

10 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 10 Statistics for each channel tap were tabulated in each area. Tap dB K-S PassInconclusive1 Tap dB K-S Pass Pass 0.87 Tap dB K-S PassFail Pass Pass Pass Pass 0.85 Tap dB K-S PassFail Pass Pass Pass Pass 0.86 Area 1 Area 2 Area 3 Area 4

11 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 11 Area 2 CDF Area 3 CDF The model statistics provides a good match to measured data.

12 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 12 Preliminary results indicate Body area channel statistics were not the same as classical indoor statistics. Nakagami-m distribution failed the goodness of fit tests in all cases. Log-normal distribution was clearly superior. Very strong correlation between taps (70-90%)

13 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 13 Our parameters and conclusions may change before August. Problems we have identified and will rectify soon: The boundary conditions were not well adjusted: some reflections off of the edge of our simulation environment could have influenced measurements taken on the back. We encountered some errors when simulating frequency selective materials.

14 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 14 We wrote Matlab code to simulate the channel. Red = Random channels form Matlab Blue = measured data Distance (m) Path loss (dB)

15 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 15 Conclusions We have developed an UWB channel model for 3-5 GHz band including the following: –Path loss versus distance –Path loss versus frequency –Small scale fading statistics –Power delay profile This model has been implemented in Matlab. Resulting model matches measured results closely.

16 doc.: IEEE /0371r0 Submission July 2004 Andrew Fort & Bart Van Poucke, IMECSlide 16 Future Work Refine our results by eliminating the influence of boundary reflections and correct any problems with frequency selective material definitions. Extend simulation to 2-6 GHz pulses Include the impact of the floor. Confirm our results with actual measurements Measure the path loss at a reference distance close to the antenna. Incorporate the influence of surrounding obstacles (if time).
