题目： Antennas and Propagation for Body-Centric Wireless Communications: Current Status, Applications and Future
报告人：IEEE Fellow、伦敦玛丽王后大学Yang Hao教授
Body-centric wireless communications refer to human-self and human-to-human networking with the use of wearable and implantable wireless sensors. It is a subject area combining wireless body-area networks (WBANs), Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs). Body-centric wireless communications has abundant applications in personal healthcare, smart home, entertainment and identification systems.
This talk presents a review of some current work conducted at Queen Mary University of London, related to antennas and propagation for body-centric wireless communications. Aspects related to radio channel measurement from microwave to THz frequencies, numerical modelling, channel characteristics are discussed. Applications and future trend of this research will be also presented.
