In this letter, a ray tracing (RT) acceleration method based on rank minimization is proposed. RT is a general tool used to simulate wireless communication environments. However, the simulation is time consuming because of the large number of ray calculations. This letter focuses on radio map interpolation as an acceleration approach. In the conventional methods cannot appropriately estimate short-span variation caused by multipath fading. To overcome the shortage of the conventional methods, we adopt rank minimization based interpolation. A computational simulation using commercial RT software revealed that the interpolation accuracy of the proposed method was higher than those of other radio map interpolation methods and that RT simulation can be accelerated approximate five times faster with the missing rate of 0.8.
