The road ahead for body-centric wireless communication and networks

Masood Ur-Rehman, Qammer Hussain Abbasi, Akram Alomainy

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Wireless interaction of the human user with the computing devices has seen a profound growth in the past decade. Wearable technology has successfully moved past the adoption stage and now stands at the brink of massive diversification with an explosion in popularity and applicability. The estimated market value of the wearable technology is expected to hit $32 billion mark by 2020 [1, 2]. It would cause the global wearable devices market it to grow from 20 million device shipments in 2015 to 187.2 million units annually by 2020 [3].
