Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

The aim of this study is to extract a physical-layer wireless channel model from a set of channel measurements, in support of the wider, collaborative, WIDAGATE project to assess the potential of wireless sensor networks for the condition monitoring of gas turbine engines. The collaborative partners in WIDAGATE are Rolls-Royce, Selex and University College London. The resulting model is being incorporated into a complete system protocol stack as part of the wider project. The physical layer channel model incorporates interference [1] and noise in addition to signal transmission characteristics.
