Advanced 3D Indoor Propagation Model: Calibration and Implementation
A software tool, implementing a semi-deterministic model which provides swift predictions, accounts for all significant physical phenomena while utilizing a clear-cut description of material properties, is presented in this paper. The software can predict signal coverage, delay profiles and angle of arrivals for receivers located anywhere in a scenario using three probabilistic parameters to describe each of the materials. Probabilistic parameters can be efficiently optimized based on measured data by a genetic algorithm optimizer contained in the software tool enabling real material properties (constants) to be avoided. The semi-deterministic model is briefly described whereas its implementation into the tool is explained in greater detail.
