About this book

This book presents the design, development and field trials of radio frequency based wireless monitoring system for sleep apnoea patients. It contains 4 major areas including general background of wireless monitoring technology and MIMO in wireless body area network (WBAN), microwave hardware designs, virtual MIMO in WBAN and hardware system level implementation and field trials. At components level, this book presents the design theory, process and examples of bandpass filters, lowpass filters, low profile patch antennas, power amplifiers and oscillators which are the key elements in transducer designs in the body area network and cooperative communication wireless sensor network system. At system level, this book features the hardware integration, field trial and network coding techniques. This book also gives a presentation of virtual MIMO applications, e.g. MIMO implementation using FPGA, correlation coefficient measurement. The book will create impact in the fields of wireless monitoring technology in biomedical engineering, which have been growing exponentially.

About the authors

Dr. Karmakar obtained PhD in ITEE from the University of Queensland in 1999. Dr. Karmakar’s PhD work on Antennas for Mobile Satellite Communications was elected one of the top ten research findings at UQ in 1998 and 3rd best student paper in 1997 APMC and published in UQ News, Canberra Times, and ABC Radio. An Australian defense analyst hailed this design as the first fully planar low-cost phased array antenna designed in Australia. 

In 2004 Dr. Karmakar formed RFID and Antenna Research Group at Monash University. The group is supported by 4 ARC funded projects which are worth > $2M. In 2006 he initiated research on chipless RFID physical layer development at Monash University with supports from an ARC Discovery Grant DP0665523: Chipless RFID for Barcode Replacement. The invention of Chipless RFID generated 2 Australian and 2 international (PCT) patents (pending), 1 scholarly book, 16 scholarly book chapters, 7 refereed journal and 22 conference papers. This is the first chipless RFID tag to combine RFID with the ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. 

His recent industry interactions have initiated new research collaboration LP0989652: Printable Multi-Bit Radio Frequency Identification for Banknotes. This project was elected one of only ten best research proposals (out of approximately 2,000) by ARC in October 2008. He is a CI of ARC SRI: Bionic Vision (worth $8M) and will provide intellectual leadership in the wireless division of the research team. 

Yang Yang (S’11–M’14) was born in Inner Mongolia, China and received MEng, MSc, Ph.D degrees from Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, in 2007, 2008 and 2013, respectively. From 2012 to 2015, he was an Asia-Pacific GSP Engineer at Rain Bird and a Global GSP Success Award holder of the year 2014. He served as a Senior Research Associate with Department of Engineering, Macquarie University, Sydney, during April 2015 to April 2016. From April 2016 to December 2016, he was a Research Fellow with State Key Laboratory of Millimeter-Waves, City University of Hong Kong. In December 2016, Dr Yang Yang joined School of Electrical and Data Engineering, University of Technology Sydney. His research interests include RFIC, microwave, millimeter-wave and terahertz devices/circuits, reconfigurable antennas, wearable antennas, wearable medical devices, sensors and remote sensing techniques. He has over 50 international publications.


Dr. Abdur Rahim

Dr. Abdur Rahim obtained his PhD degree in Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, Monash University, Australia in July 2014. His PhD thesis work is on cooperative virtual multiple input multiple output (MIMO) network for wireless body area network (WBAN) to enhance the signal quality and detection in wireless sleep apnoea monitoring physiological parameters. In his PhD design project he developed test beds for wireless monitoring two physiological parameters¾electrocardiogram (ECG) and electromyography (EMG) signals¾from a patient. He developed in-house built algorithm for cooperative WBAN virtual MIMO system using energy efficient network coding. He designed and developed space time coding using FPGA for WBAN. He also designed and developed a rectangular patch antenna at 5.8 GHz for monitoring spatial diversity performance for WBAN in sleep patient He developed various signal processing algorithms for cooperative communication in WBAN such as amplify-and-forward, decode-and-forward, estimate-and-forward and distributed space time coding. He also developed the WBAN channel model suitable for wireless sleep apnoea monitoring. He earned Master of Engineering in Telecommunications from Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand in 2005. In his MSc thesis he developed blind channel estimation in MIMO for multi-carrier code division multiple access (MCCDMA) technique for wireless communications. He served as a faculty member at the Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) department of International Islamic University, Chittagong, Bangladesh from 2000 to 2009. He taught digital signal processing, digital communications, cellular mobile systems, information theory and coding, digital logic design and signals and systems. He obtained his bachelor of engineering (BSc) degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh in 1999. He is currently working as an electronic engineer at Polar Electronic Industries Pty. Ltd., Melbourne, Australia. He is responsible to design and develop filters, resonators, power dividers and combiners, matching design of communication antenna. He also is an active member of Monash Microwave Antennas RFID and Sensor Research (MMARS) group. His research area of interests include virtual MIMO, Antenna design, Sleep Apnoea monitoring and network coding.
