Abstract

This paper presents an alternative procedure for the prediction of propagation path loss in urban environments. It is based on Neural Network (NN) algorithms and uses the detailed environment profile instead of the mean values of its structural parameters. The general performance of the NN shows its effectiveness to yield results with satisfactory accuracy in short time. The received results are compared to the respective ones yielded by the Ray-Tracing model and exhibit satisfactory accuracy either for uniform or for non-uniform distribution of the manmade structured environment.
