bluetoothPathLossConfig

Bluetooth BR/EDR or LE path loss configuration parameters

    Description

    The bluetoothPathLossConfig object specifies parameters for the bluetoothPathLoss function. Use the bluetoothPathLoss function to estimate the path loss between Bluetooth® basic rate/enhanced data rate (BR/EDR) or low energy (LE) devices.

    Creation

    Description

    cfgPathLoss = bluetoothPathLossConfig creates a default Bluetooth BR/EDR or LE path loss estimation configuration object.

    example

    cfgPathLoss = bluetoothPathLossConfig(Name=Value) sets properties by using one or more name-value arguments. For example, Environment="Home" sets the signal propagation environment to home.

    Properties

    expand all

    Signal propagation environment, specified as "Home", "Industrial", "Office", or "Outdoor".

    Data Types: char | string

    Transmitter antenna gain, specified as a scalar or a row vector of values in the range [–10, 10]. Units are in dBi.

    Data Types: double

    Receiver antenna gain, specified as a scalar or a row vector of values in the range [–10, 10]. Units are in dBi.

    Data Types: double

    Transmitter cable loss, specified as a nonnegative scalar or a row vector. Units are in dB.

    Data Types: double

    Receiver cable loss, specified as a nonnegative scalar or a row vector. Units are in dB.

    Data Types: double

    Transmitter antenna height, specified as a positive scalar or a row vector. Units are in meters.

    Dependencies

    To enable this property, set the Environment property to "Outdoor".

    Data Types: double

    Receiver antenna height, specified as a positive scalar or a row vector. Units are in meters.

    Dependencies

    To enable this property, set the Environment property to "Outdoor".

    Data Types: double

    Path loss exponent of the specified environment, specified as a positive scalar.

    Dependencies

    To enable this property, set the Environment property to "Industrial".

    Data Types: double

    Standard deviation, specified as a nonnegative scalar. Units are in dB.

    Dependencies

    To enable this property, set the Environment property to "Industrial" or "Outdoor".

    Data Types: double

    Random number source, specified as "Global stream" or "mt19937ar with seed".

    • "Global stream" — The object generates a normally distributed random number by using the current global random number stream.

    • "mt19937ar with seed" — The object generates a normally distributed random number by using the mt19937ar algorithm.

    Data Types: char | string

    Initial seed for mt19937ar, specified as a nonnegative scalar.

    Dependencies

    To enable this property, set the RandomStream property to "mt19937ar with seed".

    Data Types: double

    This property is read-only.

    Path loss model of the specified environment, returned as 'TwoRayGroundReflection', 'LogNormalShadowing', or 'NISTPAP02Task6'.

    • If you set the Environment property to "Outdoor", this property returns the 'TwoRayGroundReflection' value.

    • If you set the Environment property to "Industrial", this property returns the 'LogNormalShadowing' value.

    • If you set the Environment property to "Home" or "Office", this property returns the 'NISTPAP02Task6' value.

    Data Types: char

    Examples

    collapse all

    Create a default Bluetooth path loss estimation configuration object. By default, the object specifies an outdoor environment.

    cfgPathLossOutdoor = bluetoothPathLossConfig;

    Specify the transmitter and receiver antenna heights, in meters.

    cfgPathLossOutdoor.TransmitterAntennaHeight = 2;
    cfgPathLossOutdoor.ReceiverAntennaHeight = 3;

    Specify the standard deviation, in dB.

    cfgPathLossOutdoor.StandardDeviation = 1.6667
    cfgPathLossOutdoor = 
      bluetoothPathLossConfig with properties:
    
                     Environment: 'Outdoor'
          TransmitterAntennaGain: 0
             ReceiverAntennaGain: 0
            TransmitterCableLoss: 0
               ReceiverCableLoss: 0
        TransmitterAntennaHeight: 2
           ReceiverAntennaHeight: 3
               StandardDeviation: 1.6667
                    RandomStream: 'Global stream'
    
       Read-only properties:
                   PathLossModel: 'TwoRayGroundReflection'
    
    

    Create a Bluetooth path loss estimation configuration object for an industrial environment, specifying the path loss exponent as 2 and standard deviation as 0 dB. A path loss exponent value of 2 and a standard deviation of 0 dB signifies that the Bluetooth signal propagates in free space.

    cfgPathLossIndustrial = bluetoothPathLossConfig(Environment="Industrial", ...
        PathLossExponent=2,StandardDeviation=0)
    cfgPathLossIndustrial = 
      bluetoothPathLossConfig with properties:
    
                   Environment: 'Industrial'
        TransmitterAntennaGain: 0
           ReceiverAntennaGain: 0
          TransmitterCableLoss: 0
             ReceiverCableLoss: 0
              PathLossExponent: 2
             StandardDeviation: 0
                  RandomStream: 'Global stream'
    
       Read-only properties:
                 PathLossModel: 'LogNormalShadowing'
