Optimized wireless channel characterization in large complex environments by hybrid ray launching-collaborative filtering approach

Description: Simulation techniques based on deterministic methods such as ray tracing and ray launching are widely used to perform radioplanning tasks. However, the quality of the simulations depends on the number of rays and the angular resolution. The computational cost of these simulations in high definition prevents their use in complex environment, and their low-definition counterparts are used instead. In this letter, we propose a technique based on collaborative filtering to lessen the poor-quality problems of low-definition simulations. We show that our approach obtains results very similar to those of high definition in much less time. Also, we compare our approach to other well-known techniques and show that it performs better in terms of accuracy and precision. The use of combined deterministic/collaborative filtering techniques allows the estimation of radioplanning tasks in large, complex scenarios with a potentially large amount of transceivers.
