Abstract
Accurate and precise motion tracking of limbs and human subjects has technological importance in various healthcare applications. The use of impulse radio-ultra wideband technology (IR-UWB) technology due its inherent properties is of recent interest for high-accuracy localization. This paper presents experimental investigations and analysis of indoor human body localization and tracking of limb movements in 3-D based on IR-UWB technology using compact and cost-effective body-worn antennas. The body-centric wireless channel characterization has been analyzed in detail using parameters such as path loss magnitude, number of multipath components, rms delay spread,...
