Abstract

As personal communications develop further, there is need to develop wearable antennas that can communicate with wireless LANS, Blue Tooth and other digital systems. Since these antennas will be close to the human body, the properties of the channels they are communicating through must be evaluated together with the enteraction between the channel and the antennas and between the antennas themselves. In order to include this information in the simulation of entire digital communications systems, system models for the antennas and the human body channel must be developed. The paper gives results of measurements on a single antenna and two antennas when placed simultaneously on the human body. Methods of developing system models for the antennas and the channel are explained.
