A novel optimisation procedure for the location of the transmitter in 3 × 3 multiple input multiple output wireless local area network wireless communication systems is presented. The optimal antenna location for maximising the channel capacity is searched by particle swarm optimiser (PSO) and asynchronous particle swarm optimisation (APSO). There are two different receiver locations considered in the simulation. These two cases are: (i) the transmitter is mobile in the whole indoor environment and the receivers are located on the tables spaced in intervals uniformly distributed (ii) the transmitter is mobile and the receivers are space in uniformly distributed intervals in the whole indoor environment. Numerical results have shown that the proposed PSO and APSO methods are transmit antenna location is optimised to increase channel capacity. The APSO has better optimisation results compared with the PSO and numerical results also show that the APSO outperforms the PSO in convergence speed.
