Operating at sub 1V voltage and realized in thin-film transistor technology (TFTs) on plastic film, the chip paves the way for universal sensing applications, such as item level RFID tagging, body area networks
(BAN) and environmental monitoring, that require prolonged remote autonomy, and ultimate thinness, flexibility and robustness.
An international group of engineers, designers, computer scientists, and other researchers discuss wireless sensor technologies for patient monitoring, body area networks
, mobile devices for storing personal health information, memory logging systems, a ubiquitous doctor device, vital sign monitors, using active multimodal feedback for neurological damage, an alternative input system for people with motor disabilities, computer-based home care, and other devices.
Propagation measurements and modeling is discussed in chapters on analysis of UWB signal attenuation through typical building materials, large- and medium-scale propagation modeling, small-scale UWB propagation modeling, antenna design and propagation measurements and modeling for UWB wireless body area networks
, and UWB spatial channel characteristics.
Additionally, Mayo's Micro-Miniature Transceiver chip will be combined with Gentag's radar-responsive tag technology and integrated under license to create a new type of communication chip that will combine Near Field Communication(NFC), Body Area Networks
(BAN), as well as long-range wireless communication and geolocation.
Personal, predictive, and preventive care can improve one s quality of life in addition to saving lives, stated Chris Van Hoof, program direct body area networks
We also see developments in key technologies such as Augmented Reality, Body Area Networks
, Ambient Awareness, and Peer-to-Peer Communications as drivers for evolution in consumer perception of value and willingness to engage in new forms of communications, content, applications, and commerce.
The Intelligent Communication section discusses the use of cloud based networks when communicating by Body Area Networks
(BAN) and Personal Area Networks (PAN).
