Abstract
This paper presents a detailed description of a propagation channel measurement campaign performed in a warehouse environment and provide a comprehensive channel model for this environment. Using a vector network analyzer (VNA), we explored both Line-of-sight(LOS) and Non-Line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios over a 2-8 GHz frequency range. We extracted both small-scale and large-scale channel parameters such as distance-dependent pathloss exponent (n), frequency-dependent pathloss exponent (k), shadowing variance, and amplitude fading statistics of the channel. We also provide the clustering analysis of the channel impulse responses by using a modified Saleh-Valenzuela approach. Our model is validated by comparing the distributions of the... (More)

We also provide the clustering analysis of the channel impulse responses by using a modified Saleh-Valenzuela approach. Our model is validated by comparing the distributions of the root-mean-square (RMS) delay spread obtained from our model and measurement data, respectively. The model developed can be used for realistic performance evaluations of ultrawideband (UWB) communications and localization systems in warehouse environments. (Less)
