Proceedings of the 2023 17th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), Florence, Italy, 2023, pp. 1-5doi: 10.23919/EuCAP57121.2023.10133786
Abstract: This paper proposes a mid-band statistical propagation model in which objective clutter metrics derived from lidar data provide the means to predict the distribution of clutter loss. Model performance is compared with 3.5 GHz propagation measurements performed in Boulder, Colorado, at two different antenna heights. Results demonstrate that this approach provides improved accuracy when compared to traditional modeling approaches that use subjective clutter categories such as urban, suburban, and rural.
