Abstract

We investigate the benefits of pattern diversity from using reconfigurable antenna arrays relative to conventional non-reconfigurable arrays that use signal processing techniques such as antenna grouping. The performance of various MIMO antenna mode selection algorithms are experimentally analyzed and benchmarked. Our performance evaluation is based on a measurement campaign employing a software-defined-radio MIMO testbed. Our findings demonstrate relative performance improvements from using pattern diversity at certain conditions.
