Abstract

In order to let administrators know their QOS of wireless LAN both in convenience and safety of service range, an interactive and immersive visualization of high frequency electromagnetic wave propagation on the CAVE has been studied with authors, which represents the propagation as the volume data defined by the beam tracing technique with sets of three rays. In the previous study, we used distributed computing on the tracing and successive algorithm to generate the volume data. Through this way, the authors reduced the waiting time largely. However, the accuracy of generated beam need to be improved. Especially the method of division of beam which is from one zone enter the another zone must be improved. In the previous system, we just stack the intensity of electromagnetic wave which enter into the new zone, but have not considered about the direction of the ray. Therefore in this paper, we aim at making the method of division to get better.
