Title (EN) COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM AND METHOD USING A PART OF HUMAN BODY AS AN ANTENNA IN A BODY AREA NETWORK
(FR) SYSTÈME ET MÉTHODE DE COMMUNICATION UTILISANT LE CORPS HUMAIN COMME ANTENNE DANS UN RÉSEAU DE ZONE CORPORELLE
Abstract:
(EN) There is provided a communication system and method using a part of human body (30) as an antenna in a body area network, and more particularly, to a communications system and method enabling wireless communications using a low frequency band without the use of a bulky antenna in such a manner that a transmitting side communications device (10) applies electrical signals (1 ) to a human body via a transmitting-side coupler to allow part of human body to act as an antenna, and electrical signals (3), occurring in another part of human body due to radio frequency (RF) signals (2), are transferred to a receiving side communications device (20) via a receiving-side coupler.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système et une méthode de communication utilisant le corps humain comme antenne dans un réseau corporel, et plus particulièrement sur un système et une méthode de communication permettant des communications sans fil sur bande basse fréquence sans devoir utiliser d'antenne volumineuse, de manière à ce qu'un dispositif de communication côté émission applique des signaux électriques au corps humain via un coupleur côté émission permettant d'utiliser une partie du corps humain comme antenne, et à ce que des signaux électriques produits dans une autre partie du corps sous l'effet de signaux RF soient transférés à un dispositif de communication côté réception par l'intermédiaire d'un coupleur côté réception.
