Abstract

The creation of a 3D animated human model (avatar) to be used in Electromagnetic (EM) simulation software is described for low-outage Body Area Network applications such as healthcare. Scanned surface data of a human model is combined with movement data from a Motion Capture system to simulate an on-body channel between two Dual Band Metallic Button Antennas (DBMBAs) mounted on the wrist & chest and the wrist & hip during walking. An investigation of how different factors such as human geometry parameters, arm swing and wrist twisting can affect the body-centric channel during walking action is presented together with the relative significance of each of these factors on predicting body-centric channel gain.
