Abstract

Wireless body area network (WBAN) using millimeter wave is expected to suppress inter-WBAN interference in crowded condition because higher free space loss and higher human body attenuation than that of microwave such as 2.4 GHz reduce interference power. The environment with lots of people makes the probability of human body blocking of the interference path high. In this paper, two kinds of human body attenuation are measured to evaluate the power of inter-WBAN interference at 60 GHz: One is the body attenuation who wears Rx antenna and the other is the body attenuation who exists between Tx and Rx antennas. From the result, assuming in general WBAN condition, interference power of inter-WBAN is under the received power sensitivity in most cases when Tx antenna and Rx antenna are non-line-of-sight (NLoS).
