60GHz Multipath Propagation Analysis and Inference for an Indoor ScenarioView Publication
Channel measurements at millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies are typically carried out using directional antennas to overcome high path loss at mmWave frequencies. Unlike traditional directional channel measurements using narrow beam horn antennas where ray paths can be uniquely mapped to a direction with sufficient high accuracy, phased arrays with irregular beam pattern offers additional complexity in determining the arrival statistics of ray paths. In this work, we propose a systematic method to infer the ray path characteristics with the knowledge of beam patterns used by the phased array. We leverage on the channel measurement data obtained from extensive 60 GHz measurement campaign performed for indoor living room scenario and extract the ray path information from the measured data with high reliability. We also verify our findings through ray tracing simulation.
