The absolute most robust (error-free) settings would be QPSK, rate 1/2 FEC and 1/4 guard interval -- but that might not give you enough Mbps data capacity for what you're doing.
Step one is figure out the data rate you need to transmit. Step two, dial in the most robust parameters that are just enough to meet that data rate. Step three, cross your fingers and hope there is enough signal to noise ratio for the receiver to catch all the data with an extremely low bit error rate.
So if I'm setting up a RF Central Microwave system for a reality TV show and my options are QPSK, 16QAM, or 64QAM. What should I set the transmitter to, to obtain the best quality in the microwave monitor/receiver? And does anyone know about the FEC: 1/2 2/3 3/4 5/6 7/8
Guard interval: 1/32 1/16 1/8 1/4
What are my optimum settings?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
