Abstract

In this paper, we numerically investigated the in vivo wireless communication channel for human male torso at 915 MHz. Results show that in vivo channel is different than the classical communication channel and location dependency is very critical for link budget calculations. A statistical path loss model based on angle, depth and body region is introduced for near and far field regions. Furthermore, multipath characteristics are investigated using a power delay profile as well.
