Analysis of wireless communications in underground tunnels for industrial use
2012 (English)In: IECON 2012 - 38th Annual Conference on IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, 2012, 3216-3220 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Wireless communication is expected to improve the safety and the productivity in underground tunnels for industrial use. However the multiple shapes and structures of tunnels affect wireless communication characteristics in terms of signal propagation which is significantly different from terrestrial environments. This paper presents comprehensive broadband measurements and simulations of multipath propagation and path loss in two underground environments. The results can be used in the development of new communication systems in tunnels that provide industrial services.
