Abstract

This study present a windows application for software planning tools for WLAN propagation model visualization. The developed SPWPM Analysis Tool was designed by using the MapInfo Programming concept and MATLAB programming language. The software provides basic functions for propagation analysis such as System operating margin, cost optimization and K-Factor analysis. In particular, the SPWPM provides effective data visualization through wireless link environment condition. Analysis results are expressed realistically and intuitively on geographical display. The Graphic User Interface (GUI) of SPWPM was designed specifically for WLAN link planning analysis. In this paper, the development and implementation of SPWPM is presented. In order to demonstrate the capabilities of SPWPM, it is used to analyze the Bandar Baru Bangi Area in Malaysia for the purpose of intelligent traffic light management system, using LOS wireless LAN link consideration.
