The goal of the project is to take Body-Coupled Communication for Body Area Network technology to the next TRL. The goal would be achieved through experimental research and measurement-based modeling. The advantage of BCC is greater privacy and less electromagnetic interference; potentially, also better energy efficiency compared to existing body-wide wireless networking solutions.
Main objectives of the project are:
[O1] Collect a dataset about BCC signal propagation on a sample of the local population;
[O2] Create a parameterized mathematical model of the BCC signal propagation on the human body;
[O3] Investigate the Human Body Communication data transmission protocol from the IEEE 802.15.6 standard;
