Data Set Information:
Abstract:
The frequency domain measurement of the scattering parameter, S21, of the wireless channel was carried out using the ZVB14 Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) from Rhode and Schwartz. The measurement system consists of the VNA, low loss RF cables, and omnidirectional antennas at the transmitter and receiver ends. The transmitter and receiver heights were fixed at 1.5 m. A program script was written for the VNA to measure 10 consecutive sweeps: each sweep contains 601 frequency sample points with spacing of 0.167 MHz to cover a 100 MHz band centered at 2.4 GHz. The settings provided a high timedomain resolution of 10 nsec (inverse of the bandwidth) and a time span of (0.167 MHz) = 5.99 Î¼sec . The measurements were designed to examine the WiFi bands specifically, channels 1, 6, and 11 in the IEEE 802.11 standard.
The frequency domain channel measurements were conducted at Khalifa University campus in Sharjah, UAE. The measurements were done in 4 different locations:
1 Lab139 (highly cluttered)
2 Corridor_rm155 (medium cluttered) [with wall from one side and windows from the
other side].
3 Main_Lobby (low cluttered)
4 Sports_Hall (open space).

2 Corridor_rm155 (medium cluttered) [with wall from one side and windows from the other side].
3 Main_Lobby (low cluttered)
4 Sports_Hall (open space).
The layout of the floor plan is shown in Floor_Plan.pdf where the red circle represents the transmitter and the green circle represent the receiver location.
The square area was divided into uniform grids with a spacing of one wavelength (12.5 cm) that resulted in a total number of 196 points to capture the smallscale variations. The database was measured under a stationary scenario where there were no movements around the Tx/Rx at the time of measurements. This is achieved since the survey is conducted during lowactivity time. This gives a total of 1960 samples because each point has 10 measurements.
In the case of Lab139 there is one set of measurements where the furthest point between the Tx/Rx is 7.1m and then the receiver will moved across the uniform grid. This gives a total of 1960 points.
In the case of Corridor_rm155 there are three set of measurements where the furthest point between Tx/Rx is 7.1m and this gives a total of 1960 points.
In the case of Main_Lobby there are three set of measurements where the furthest point between Tx/Rx is 7.1m and this gives a total of 1960 points.
In the case of Sport_Hall there is one set of measurements where the furthest point between the Tx/Rx is 7.1m and this gives a total of 1960 points.
filename format (environment_Tx/Rx(separation)) i.e Corridor_rm155_7.1 : The environment is a narrow corridor with walls from one side and window from the other side and the Tx/Rx maximum separation is 7.1m and as the receiver is moved across the uniform grid it decreases.
Each file will Loc_xxxx and this will resemble the location of the receiver and each location have ten measurements. The flow of
numbers on the uniform grid is shown in Flow_of_Numbering.pdf
