An energy efficient communication technique for medical implants/micro robots
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Biomedical implanted sensors and medical micro robots are emerging devices which facilitate health monitoring, medical therapies, and minimally invasive surgeries. The success of these devices highly relies on establishing reliable communication links between inside and outside the body in the presence of severe constraints on energy consumptions. We develop an energy efficient pilot-assisted data transmission technique for communication between a single-antenna medical sensor/micro-robot inside the body to multi-antenna receiver on the body surface though non-homogeneous propagation environment.
