Body area networks (BAN) will become increasingly important in the future personal communication systems. We believe that intra-body communications (IBC) based on near field electromagnetic waves is a suitable solution for BAN. This paper presents experimental measurements of the frequency and time domain responses in order to investigate the transmission characteristics of the human body as a conductor of low power high frequency radio signals (up to 3GHz). In the measurements, several… CONTINUE READING
