The analysis and experiments presented in this paper are connected with propagation of signals between sensor nodes located in open area. The main purpose is to show some factors that affect the accuracy and reliability of the received signal strength (RSS) measurement as well as the determination of The Path Losses (PL), The Path Loss constant (n) and The Standard deviation (σ). The main factors considered here are: position and antenna orientation of sensor nodes and the distance between them.


Keywords –model; network; outdoor; propagation; sensor; wireless.
