Abstract

It is well known that the stochastic nature of the interference deeply impacts the performance of emerging and future wireless communication systems. In this work we consider an ad hoc network where the nodes move according to the Random Waypoint mobility model. Assuming a timevarying wireless channel due to slow and fast fading and, considering the dynamic path loss due to the mobility of the nodes, we start by characterizing the interference distribution caused to a receiver by the moving interferers located in a ring. For this purpose, we consider a receiver located at the center of the simulated region. Based on the distribution of the interference's power, we evaluate different methodologies to estimate the power of the interference in real-time. Results achieved with a Maximum Log-likelihood estimator (MLE) and a Probability Weighted Moments (PWM) estimator are compared. The accuracy of the results achieved with the proposed methodologies in several simulations show that they may used as an effective tool of interference power estimation in future wireless communication systems, exhibiting high accuracy even when the number of samples is low.
