Safe Design for Wearable Tech and the IoT

Posted July 11, 2016 4:11 PM by SavvyExacta

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a wide range of wearable devices – intended for health, leisure, and sport. Bringing these devices to market will require data transmission links that are not only reliable, but safe.

Antennas are critical components of these devices, allowing communication between the body-worn sensor and off-body system. Antenna design for body-centric environments, however, can be extremely challenging.

Besides transmission reliability, safety and the impact of RF fields on human tissue are important design considerations. Legally binding regulations exist to prevent excessive tissue heating caused by electromagnetic fields around sensors or antennas.

What do you think are some of the design concerns for wearables and the IoT?

Are you interested in learning how to use simulation to design for the IoT? Join CST for a free webinar on simulation tools for wearable antennas and sensors.

Key Take-Aways

  • Learn how antennas can be constructed and simulated for the complex environment of the human body
  • Discover body model types and sizes required for design by simulation
  • Understand how simulation addresses safety standards and legally binding regulations
