A dynamic characterization of the wireless body-area communication channel for monitoring a sleeping person is presented. The characterization uses measurements near the 2.4 GHz ISM band with measurements of eight adult subjects each over a period of at least 2 hours. Numerous transmit-receive pair (Tx-Rx) locations on and off the body for a typical body-area-network (BAN) are used. Three issues are addressed: 1) modeling of channel gain, 2) outage probability, and 3) outage duration. It is...[Show more]
