An Optimized Generic Model of Radio Propagation through Vegetation

This project studies the propagating channel path loss in urban and suburban scenarios and how the foliage affects the channel efficiency in terms of path loss. The impact of different parameters such as leaf size, leaf type and trees density will be considered. The study includes the RET model, empirical models and theoretical models. Numerical packages will be utilized to compare the conventional channel models and the results will be presented. The proposed model will be optimized to reduce the number of input parameters and its accuracy will be tested against the measured data. During the course of this project, the intern will collaborate with Fastback networks engineers and staff and she also participate in site surveys.
