SERENE project analyses the exposure of users to electromagnetic radiation from the antennas of wireless wearable sevices either embedded in garments, or implantable.
The workload of SERENE is organized in five work packages. As of today,:-WP1 (completed) regards the investigation of:- (i) literature wearable antennas technologies, exposure to EM radiation of their users and methods to reduce it; (ii) and the related wireless systems of the “HYGEIA” Hospital. WP2 (completed) regards the design and EM simulation of two types of microstrip patch antennas; one selected to serve as reference antenna. Various types and geometries of human phantoms were investigated, simulated and used to study the interaction of wearable antenna with the user’s body. To reduce EM energy absorbed by the human body, modifications in antenna design and components selections have been realized in WP3 and will be concluded next year. Reference antenna designs are to be prototyped (due conclusion) and characterized, while the phantom was designed and is ready for fabrication in WP4. The representative of the relevant departments of “HYGEIA” shall gain awareness of project’s results via a dedicated presentation and discussion. WP4 will be concluded next year. In WP5, a scientific publication was presented at LAPC 2018, oral presentations were given at NCSR“D” and newspaper.
Efforts for proposals submission as a response to ESA ITTs (under negotiation), H2020 and ΕΡΕΥΝΩ-ΔΗΜΙΟΥΡΓΩ-ΚΑΙΝΟΤΟΜΩ were made. According to the annual reports, which summarized in a profound manner project’s outcomes, Dr. Seimeni has been dedicated to her duties, delivering results in time and in budget and allocated her time judiciously between SingularLogic S.A. and WiCom Lab of IIT of NCSR”D”.
