Beam Blockage in Optical Wireless Systems

04/23/2020 ∙ by Sarah O. M. Saeed, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we use the percentage blockage as a metric when an opaque disc obstructs the Line-of-Sight link from the access point to the receiver in an optical wireless indoor communication system. The effect of the different parameters of the obstructing object are studied, these are the radius, the height, and the horizontal distance from the receiver in the positive y direction. The percentage of blocked room locations to the total number of room locations when varying the disc parameters is studied assuming a single serving link. It was found that depending on the dimensions of the obstructing object and the distance from the receiver in addition to which access point is serving the user, that blockage can vary between 0 service received by a user, in terms of beam blockage depends on the access point they are connected to. The resulting fairness challenges will be addressed in resource allocation optimization in future work.
