Body Area Networks: Radio Channel Modelling and Propagation Characteristics

Gupta, Aastha; Abhayapala, Thushara


Many current and future wireless devices are wearable and use the human body as a carrier. This has made the body an important part of the transmission channel of these wireless devices. Inclusion of the body as a transmission channel will see future wireless networks rely heavily on Body Area Networks (BAN). BAN will be used not only in medical applications but also in personal area network applications. In order to build BAN devices, it is imperative to model the channel accurately. Channel...[Show more]
