This work focuses on UWB for cluttered wireless sensor network (WSN) applications, especially antennas design. In this paper, we present a novel planar small ultra-wideband (UWB) micro-strip fed antenna, for IR-UWB. Cluttered WSN are difficult cases for communications, implying the antenna to be adapted to the communication channel. The first consideration… CONTINUE READING
