Summary

Chapter sixteen, Novel wearable sensors for body area network applications, by Chomora Mikeka and Hiroyuki Arai from Yokohama National University, Japan, describes a novel wearable waveguide: a flexible interface for body-centric wireless communications, capable of concentrating wireless communication within the so-called smart suit; made of flexible, lightweight, conductive fabric: the SC8100 textile. A typical sensing and wireless data transmission design example is also presented.
