The human body and millimeter-wave wireless communication systems: Interactions and implications

  title={The human body and millimeter-wave wireless communication systems: Interactions and implications},
  author={Ting Wu and Theodore S. Rappaport and Christopher M. Collins},
  journal={2015 IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC)},
With increasing interest in millimeter-wave wireless communications, investigations on interactions between the human body and millimeter-wave devices are becoming important. This paper gives examples of today's regulatory requirements, and provides an example for a 60 GHz transceiver. Also, the propagation characteristics of millimeter-waves in the presence of the human body are studied, and four models representing different body parts are considered to evaluate thermal effects of millimeter… CONTINUE READING
