Performance Analysis of Flying Ad Hoc Network over Building with Variation of Different Antenna and Variation of Node Speed Using Rayleigh Fading

Akanksha Pandey, Laxmi Shrivastava


Flying Ad hoc Networks (FANETs) comprise of a gathering of unmanned air vehicle (UAVs) progressively shaping a transitory system without the utilization of any current foundation or concentrated organization. In this study, the impact of variation of different fading channel with variation of antenna of air vehicle over building is investigated. For this purpose Qualnet 6.1 simulator has been used and this study present the impact of flying nodes over the building by the performance of FANET by varying different antenna with speed of node by using Rayleigh fading has been evaluated. The performance has been compared in term of average delay, throughput, average jitter, & packet delivery ratio. The results are showing various changes due to change in antenna with variation of speed of nodes using Rayleigh fading over building of air vehicle.

Keywords: FANET, antenna types, fading channel, nodes speed, Rayleigh fading, Qualnet 6.1
