This study proposes an efficient and accelerated Intelligent Ray-Tracing (IRT) algorithm based on Binary Angle Division (BAD) technique for radio signal prediction in indoor area. The intelligent features of the proposed IRT can skip the processing of the unnecessary signals based on the invalid region and reduce the number of candidate objects (obstacles) as well as their edges while performing ray-object intersection tests, which can make the algorithm faster as well as more accurate. The obtained results are compared with the existing indoor ray propagation methods to prove the superiority of the proposed IRT technique in terms of both computational efficiency and accuracy of signal prediction.
