Abstract

Ray tracing and the geometrical theory of diffraction are applied to a simulation of the radio channel experienced by equipment communicating inside buildings. Comparisons are made between the simulated results and electromagnetic measurements through the use of probability distributions fitted to the data. The system parameters are determined from the simulation, and used to recreate the channel in a statistical manner, demonstrating that a limited set of information on the channel is sufficient to model the channel
