Summary: 
In this paper, we propose a non-cooperative line-of-sight (LOS)/non-LOS channel identification algorithm with single node channel measurements based on time-of-arrival statistics. In order to improve the accuracy of channel identification, we adopt a recalibration interval in terms of measured distance to the proposed algorithm. Experimental results are presented in terms of identification probability and recalibration interval. The proposed algorithm involves a trade-off between the channel identification quality and the recalibration rate. However, depending on the recalibration interval, it is possible to greatly improve the sensitivity of the channel identification system.
