Abstract

In this paper, the results of radio channel measurements between two hypothetical cellular handsets in an outdoor urban environment are reported. The device-to-device channel measurements were made at 868 MHz and investigated a number of different everyday usage scenarios such as the devices being held at the user's heads, placed in a pocket while one of the users rotated or both moved randomly. It was found that shadowing of the main signal path caused by the human body will be an important factor in future device-to-device communications at this frequency. The recently proposed shadowed κ-μ fading model was used to characterize these channels and shown to provide a good description of the measured data.
