Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In the normal mode of operation of co-located Bluetooth piconets, nodes in different piconets transmit independently of each other, and thus inband co-channel interference is certain to occur from time to time. Co-ordinated co-located access points (CCAP) however offer significantly higher throughput than both the uncoordinated synchronous and asynchronous cases because an interference avoidance scheme is employed when in the Bluetooth CONNECTION state. However with a CCAP system, some interference is observed to occur when link management protocl signalling (LMP) takes place. The varying amount of interference generated due to link management signalling, the conditions under which it occurs, and how this may be avoided or minimised is examined in this paper. It is shown that under certain conditions, the CCAP scheme still outperforms normal Bluetooth systems even with the inclusion of LMP signalling.
