Wearable Networks

Millimeter wave wearable networks in crowded indoor environments

Mobile wearable computing devices are rapidly making inroads due to advancements in miniature electronics fabrication technology, mobile wireless communication, efficient batteries, and increasingly capable data analytics. The major driver of the mobile electronics market has been fitness and healthcare gadgets. Recently, a new class of high-end wearable devices has emerged with relaxed power constraints and high data rate requirements.

Millimeter Wave for Electronic Wearable Networks

Wearable communication networks are the next frontier for wireless communications. Wearable networks connect different devices in and around the human body, including low-rate devices like pedometers and high-rate devices like augmented-reality glasses. Such networks might use wireless standards like IEEE 802.11ad, WirelessHD, or even next generation millimeter (mmWave) 5G cellular to support device-to- device communication at Gbps rates.
