This survey measured radiofrequency (RF) fields from wireless local area networks (WLANs) using Wi-Fi technology against a background of RF fields in the environment over the frequency range 75 MHz–3 GHz. A total of 356 measurements were conducted at 55 sites (including private residences, commercial spaces, health care and educational institutions, and other public spaces) in four countries (U.S., France, Germany, Sweden). Measurements were conducted under conditions that would result in the… Expand
ASSESSMENT OF EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS FROM WIRELESS COMPUTER NETWORKS (WI-FI) IN SCHOOLS; RESULTS OF LABORATORY MEASUREMENTS
TLDR
Laboratory measurements have been carried out with examples of Wi-Fi devices used in UK schools to evaluate the radiofrequency power densities around them and the total emitted powers, using the spherically-integrated radiated power (IRP). Expand
Assessment of RF Exposures from Emerging Wireless Communication Technologies in Different Environments
TLDR
In situ electromagnetic (EM) radio frequency (RF) exposure to base stations of emerging wireless technologies is assessed at 311 locations, 68 indoor and 243 outdoor, spread over 35 areas in three European countries by performing narrowband spectrum analyzer measurements. Expand
Assessment of Wi-Fi radiation in indoor environments characterizing the time & space-varying electromagnetic fields
Abstract This paper focuses on the study of emissions in Wi-Fi networks in a typical indoor place, inside a building, by quantifying exposure levels detected in different locations of the house, whenExpand
ASSESSMENT OF PUBLIC EXPOSURE FORM WLANS IN THE WEST BANK—PALESTINE
TLDR
A total of 271 measurements were conducted at 69 different sites including homes, hospitals, educational institutions and other public places to assess the exposure to radiofrequency emission from wireless local area networks (WLANs), finding that measurements of power density at 1 m around the laptop resulted in less exposure than the AP in both transmit and idle modes.

Exposure to Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields From Wi-Fi in Australian Schools
TLDR
The results of this study showed that the typical RF exposure of children from Wi-Fi at school is very low and comparable or lower to other sources in the environment. Expand
Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields Exposure Assessment in Indoor Environments: A Review
TLDR
The contribution of different RF-EMF sources to the total level of exposure was found to show slightly different patterns among the indoor environments, but this finding has to be considered as a time-dependent picture of the continuous evolving exposure to RF- EMF. Expand
Characterization and Evaluation of a Commercial WLAN System for Human Provocation Studies
TLDR
Results suggest that exposure to RF fields of WLAN systems strongly depends on the sets of the router configuration: the stability of the exposure was more constant and reliable when both antennas were active and vertically positioned, with best signal quality obtained with the R52n router board at channel 9, in UDP mode. Expand
PROCEDURE FOR ASSESSMENT OF GENERAL PUBLIC EXPOSURE FROM WLAN IN OFFICES AND IN WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORK TESTBED
TLDR
A fast and accurate measurement procedure to determine experimentally wireless local area network (WLAN) radiofrequency (RF) exposure and to test compliance with international guidelines for the general public is proposed and a relevant reduction in measurement time is obtained. Expand
Exposure levels due to WLAN devices in indoor environments corrected by a time-amplitude factor of distribution of the quasi-stochastic signals.
TLDR
The results show the differences obtained when the duty cycle (DC) method is applied comparatively with the application of weighting based on an amplitude-time correction, and the exposure levels determined by three different procedures are compared. Expand
Environmental safety standards and WLAN indoor propagation
In this paper, the indoor propagation of an Access Point (AP) operating at frequency of 2.4 GHz is studied in the building of the Communication Engineering Department/University of Mosul as a caseExpand
