Title: THz Channel Sounding and Characterization for Smart Rail Mobility in the Era of 6G
As a vital vertical industry empowered by the sixth-generation mobile communication system (6G), the vision of “smart rail mobility” requires a seamless wireless connectivity with ultra high-data rate on the order of 100 Gbps or even more. This forms a strong driving force for exploiting the terahertz (THz) band where the available spectrum is massively abundant. In this talk, the smart rail mobility channel is characterized through channel sounding and ray tracing at 300 GHz band with an 8 GHz bandwidth in the Intra-wagon and Inside station scenarios. Corresponding channel characteristics such as large-scale fading, Rician K-factor, delay spread, azimuth/elevation angular spread of arrival/departure, and cross-polarization ratio are extracted. The results provide valuable insights into the system design and evaluation for THz communication-enabled smart rail mobility in the era of 6G.
