Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

The distribution of angle of arrival of multipaths in a novel three- dimensional approach is modelled. The approach followed takes into consideration a cluster of scatterers local to the mobile and models it using mixtures of Von Mises Fisher (VMF) distributions. Real MIMO experimental data was collected in a drive test campaign in Ilmenau city of Germany and was used to validate the proposed model. Results show a good match between the proposed model and the two-dimensional experimental histogram.
