Abstract

We statistically characterize received signal power variations in the time domain caused by human activity affecting 60-GHz indoor short-range wireless links. Our approach is based on propagation measurements in indoor environments considering human activity intercepting the line-of-sight (LOS) path. It has been previously shown that the ensemble of received power levels in decibel (dB) scale cannot be modeled by a Gaussian distribution, as is the case for spatial shadowing variations. In this letter, we present a theoretical stochastic approach showing that received power variations can follow a Gaussian statistical model when considered within the time intervals of similar shadowing processes. Our model is shown to have good comparison to experimental data.
