A novel technique enabling the realisation of 60 GHz body area networks.
Proceedings - BSN 2012: 9th International Workshop on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks
This paper presents a novel technique to enable over-body propagation at 60 GHz. A flexible material has been created that enables the propagation of surface waves around the body without the need of repeaters, high powers or high gain antennas. The solution is wireless and self-redundant, and will facilitate the development of light weight, high bandwidth, and low power, wireless body area networks that could offer improvements for mobile health monitoring applications as well as utility in sports and entertainment industries. © 2012 IEEE.
