Pixel Databases for Rural/Suburban Scenarios

Pixel databases are used to describe the topography, land usage and buildings in a rural/suburban scenario to obtain accurate predictions.

The wave propagation in rural and suburban scenarios is often characterized by multipath propagation due to interactions (reflections, diffractions, scattering) at various obstacles (hills, buildings, towers).

For the multipath propagation model, such as the rural ray-tracing model, considering phenomena like multiple reflections and waveguiding effects in canyons is required to obtain accurate predictions of the signal level and the spatial channel impulse response.

However, this approach requires rural pixel databases for the description of topography, land usage, and buildings within the simulation environment.
