Statistical characterization of the dynamic human body communication channel at 45 MHz.


The dynamic human body communication (HBC) propagation channel at 45 MHz was statistical characterized in this paper. A large amount of measurement data has been gathered in practical environment with real activities -treadmill running at different speeds in a lab room. The received power between two lower legs was acquired from three volunteers, with more than 60,000 snap shot of data in total. The statistical analyses confirmed that the HBC propagation channel at 45 MHz followed the Gamma and Lognormal distributions at the slower (2 km/h and 4 km/h) and faster (6 km/h and 8 km/h) running activities, respectively. The channel is insensitive to body motion with the maximum average fade duration is 0.0413 s and the most averaging bad channel duration time being less than 60 ms with the percentage of the bad channel duration time being less than 4.35%.
