Abstract

Wireless body area network (WBAN) using millimeter wave is expected to reduce inter-Wbaninterference, but it is necessary to consider the connectivity of the millimeter wave intra-Wbancommunication. In this paper, we propose the directional millimeter-wave WBAN in the walking pause considering directional selectivity between intra-Wbancommunication and inter-Wbaninterference. The measurements of on-body propagation loss are shown at 60 GHz comparing with geometrical line-of-sight (LoS) experimentation using a flashlight for directional millimeter-wave WBAN. From the measurements result, there is no severe problem due to the body attenuation of intra-Wbancommunication with the directional antenna for Tx and Rx antennas.
