On-body radio channel modeling for different human body models using FDTD techniques



This articlepresents an on-body radio channel modeling at 900MHz using the FDTD technique. The modification of antennas parameters when they are close to the body or directly on the body is analyzed. Then, the influence of the morphology on the propagation is studied; SAR and channel parameters are also extracted. © 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
