  • Frequency-Space-Polarization on UWB MIMO Performance for Body Area Network Applications

    This letter experimentally investigates the performance of ultrawideband (UWB) radio technologies with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas for body area network (BAN) applications. Effects of array spacing, antenna polarization, bandwidth and propagation on UWB-MIMO channel capacity are analyzed. The key finding here is to that in BAN the MIMO channel capacity is mainly determined by the power imbalance between subchannels compared to the sub channel correlation for both spatial array and polar array. For spatial array, the measured results show that the MIMO channel capacity is decreased when the array spacing is increased, despite the spatial correlation coefficient is decreased. This phenomenon is different from that in wide area networks (WAN) and wireless local area networks (WLAN). It is because that power difference among elements of the spatial array is significant in BAN short-range communications compared to that in WAN and WLAN. For polar array, the achievable channel capacity is lower than that of the spatial array in line-of-sight (LOS) conditions due to high cross-polarization discrimination. Furthermore, the MIMO capacity is slightly dependent on the environments due to dominance of human body effect. It is also found that the MIMO channel capacity decreased with frequency or bandwidth.

  • Second-Order Statistics for Many-Link Body Area Networks

    Second-order statistics are presented from a body-area measurement campaign using 40 simultaneous links over a few hours of everyday activity. Following from the fit of a Lognormal distribution to the channel gain, the level crossing rates and fade distributions are compared to derived theoretical second-order Lognormal statistics. Of the two adult-one male, one female-test subjects, the results for the smaller female subject showed a better fit to the Lognormal distribution and the resulting second-order statistics. Fading for indoor on-body-area communications is confirmed to be well modeled by Lognormal distributions.

  • Interference in body area networks: Are signal-links and interference-links independent?

    Network-to-network interference is a challenging problem in wireless body area networks which move frequently and operate in a non-coordinated way. In this paper, we characterize interference based on field measurements. We examine the correlation and independence between the desired (signal) and interference channels. The results show that over long periods, the two channels are statistically un-correlated. Over a short periods, the channels may become correlated, particularly when the channel variation is small.

  • Low-power secure body area network for vital sensors toward IEEE802.15.6

    Many healthcare/medical services have started using personal area networks, such as Bluetooth and ZigBee; these networks consist of various types of vital sensors. These works focus on generalized functions for sensor networks that expect enough battery capacity and low-power CPU/RF (Radio Frequency) modules, but less attention to easy-to-use privacy protection. In this paper, we propose a commercially-deployable secure body area network (S-BAN) with reduced computational burden on a real sensor that has limited RAM/ROM sizes and CPU/RF power consumption under a light-weight battery. Our proposed S-BAN provides vital data ordering among sensors that are involved in an S-BAN and also provides low-power networking with zero-administration security by automatic private key generation. We design and implement the power-efficient media access control (MAC) with resource-constraint security in sensors. Then, we evaluate the power efficiency of the S-BAN consisting of small sensors, such as an accessory type ECG and ring-type SpO2. The evaluation of power efficiency of the S-BAN using real sensors convinces us in deploying S-BAN and will also help us in providing feedbacks to the IEEE802.15.6 MAC, which will be the standard for BANs.

  • A Proposal of Finger Identification Scheme Employing Intra-Body Communications

    The intra-body communication method attracted more attention since the development of ubiquitous communication. IBC is the technology to use the human body as communication transmission channel and the exchanges of information can be realize more naturally, easily and safely. This paper proposes a new application to recognize the finger movement by using intra- body communications that we call finger identification scheme. Finger identification scheme aims to detect the finger being used when a person is using touch panel devices. Performance has been evaluated by experiments and each finger was able to be distinguished by using a detection method that we have named power time difference detection, where the finger detection is performed based on the difference in time and power of the electromagnetic signals propagating through the body. From this result, using power time difference detection method, it is possible to confirm in the receiver side which finger is being used reliably.
