Impulse radio (IR) ultra wideband (UWB) technology is assessed herein for wireless data communications with a capsule endoscope operating inside the digestive tract. The UWB channel is characterised for the frequency range of 1 – 5 GHz and line-of-sight (LOS) scenarios. Owing to the lack of a standardised mathematical model for in-body UWB signals, the channel characterisation is attained by using numerical simulations. Because of the lossy material properties of the human tissues, short delay… CONTINUE READING
