Abstract:A study of the applicability of the well-known
Google SketchUp used as a sotfware tool aimed to the teaching
of signal path loss. For this end we use the well-known peaked
functions known as the Delta functions. This demand to include
model parameters which would serve to be included in stochastic
algorithms. The resulting ourputs enter into a design of urban
zone with the software Google SketchUp in order to measure
the signal intensity degradation over the mid-sized urban areas.
Simulation of signal degradation considers random path loss that
emulates to some extent the penetration of wireless signal in
urban areas plagued of buildings and other terrain morphologies.
The procedure presented in this paper would be useful as part
of the software part of a first course of signal propagation in the
networking engineering program at the undergraduate level.
