A Non-Parametric Approach to Estimating Ambient
Noise Levels in the Presence of Bursty Interference.
IEEE Wireless Communications Letters, 1 (2).
We propose a new transmitter-side approach for
estimating the contribution to the packet error rate that is
due to background noise, distinct from the contribution due to
interference bursts. The technique relies solely on an existing
data-ack handshake and the transmitters ability to adjust or
monitor the packet size. One immediate application of this
information is in rate adaptation. Experimental measurements
with microwave oven interference are presented to demonstrate
the practical utility of the proposed technique.
