Abstract

In this paper, we characterize the simultaneous channel response of narrowband on-body and body-to-body channels at 2.48 GHz using the κ-μ fading model. The measurements considered three nodes, two of these were located on the front-chest and front-central-waist of an adult male, and the third node was located on the front-central-waist of an adult female. Multiple human mobility scenarios were considered for three different environments namely an anechoic chamber, reverberation chamber and laboratory environment. For all of the measured channels, the κ-μ probability density function (pdf) provided an excellent fit to the empirical distribution of the measured short-term fading. In addition, the channel measurements also demonstrated the channel reciprocity property for each of the on-body and body-to-body links, and scenarios considered here. Finally, we also show that the sample period of the measurement system developed for this study was well within the coherence time of the channel.
