Conformal antennas, directive antennas, ultra wideband (UWB) antennas, wireless body area network (WBAN)
A fully textile microstrip topology with ultra wideband (UWB) characteristics useful in wireless body area networks (WBAN) is proposed. The antenna is operable within the full UWB band and incorporates a full textile shielding ground plane. The full ground plane is shown to be crucial in maintaining the performance when worn on-body. It successfully reduces any on-body performance degradation, resulting in a very robust structure. A detailed numerical and experimental evaluation of the antenna is performed in free space and on body.
