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

A physical layer performance evaluation of WLAN (IEEE 802.11b) and Zigbee (IEEE 802.15.4) receivers in the presence of impulsive noise is presented. Broadband impulsive noise is modeled as a Symmetric Alpha-Stable process. The parameters of the impulsive noise model are estimated from data recorded from an electricity transmission substation (ETS). The results show that the performance degradation of the Zigbee receiver is small whilst the WLAN receiver may suffer more significant degradation
