The maximum Doppler shift of the Jakes Doppler spectrum object is specified by the
MaxDopplerShift property of the channel object. By default,
channel objects are created with a Jakes Doppler spectrum.
The Jakes Doppler spectrum object contains only one property,
SpectrumType, which is read-only and has a fixed value of
The Jakes Doppler power spectrum applies to a mobile receiver. It derives from the following assumptions :
The radio waves propagate horizontally.
At the mobile receiver, the angles of arrival of the radio waves are uniformly distributed over .
At the mobile receiver, the antenna is omnidirectional (i.e., the antenna pattern is circular-symmetrical).
The normalized Jakes Doppler power spectrum is given analytically by:
where is the maximum Doppler frequency.
Create a Rayleigh channel object with a maximum Doppler shift of fd=10 Hertz. Then,
create a Jakes Doppler spectrum object and assigns it to the
DopplerSpectrum property of the channel object.
chan = rayleighchan(1/1000,10); dop_gaussian = doppler.jakes; chan.DopplerSpectrum = dop_gaussian
