In MIMO eigenbeam space-division multiplexing, all transmission and reception antennas have been used to obtain the maximum transmission performance. However, the absorbed energy is wasteful when a part of the elements are blocked. In this paper, a method of giving up the use of transmission elements that does not function is proposed. Result of ray tracing simulation showed that the proposed method outperformed the conventional MIMO that used all array elements.
