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

Link Adaptation is an adaptive radio link technique that selects atransport mode, from a set of predefined modes of varyingrobustness, depending on the channel quality. One of theparameters that has to be defined when considering the applicationof Link Adaptation is the updating period which indicates howoften a decision is made on the transport mode to use. This paperanalyses the Link Adaptation performance for various updatingperiods under different operating conditions affecting the channelquality dynamics.
