Millimeter-Wave Technologies for Body-Centric Applications

Abstract : Body-centric wireless networks constitute an attractive next-generation wireless technology representing a cognitive interface to higher-level networks. Recently, the 60 GHz band has been identified as highly promising for body-centric wireless communications including body-area network technologies. A massive deployment of wireless devices equipped with 60 GHz Tx / Rx modules is foreseen in coming years. The corresponding new usages and services will involve near-field interaction of radiating devices with the human body, both in terms of the body impact on wireless device performances as well as in terms of user exposure. This presentation will provide an overview of main features and recent advances in the field of antenna / human body interactions in the 60 GHz band.
