This paper provides channel models for wireless body area network (WBAN) in UWB frequency band, and also presents performance evaluation using the derived channel models. The channel model is given by a statistical model in which parameters are derived from actually measured channel transfer function in a hospital room environment. These models enable us to evaluate performance of UWB-based WBAN. In this paper, bit error ratio (BER) and packet error ratio (PER) are shown for UWB-based WBAN… CONTINUE READING
