Abstract


  • In this paper, we analyze the measurement of ultra

    wideband (UWB) noise channels in different indoor

    environments. All measurements are done using a vector network

    analyzer (VNA) which allows us to measure the noise channel

    transfer functions. We find that the noise power of the system is

    decreased by increasing the intermediate frequency (IF)

    bandwidth which leads to an increase in time taken to perform

    measurements of the channels. Also, we measure the

    environmental noise power and find that it is slightly affected by

    fluorescent light sources inside the measurement environments.

    In addition, we find that the environmental noise is decreased

    when enclosed in a Faraday cage (steel shed), within an intense

    multipath measurement environment. As secondary application,

    we show how a frequency detection device can be used to readjust

    a maladjusted frequency selection on a remote controller

    for a garage door, in presence of environmental noise power.
