The growth of wearable technology in recent times lead to the development of several wearable devices. These devices are useful in several applications such as, wireless body area networks (WBAN), Internet-of-Things (IoT), sports, entertainment and biomedical healthcare.

The materials and the fabrication techniques used for wearable antennas play vital role. Over the past decades efforts are being made in finding better materials and fabrication technologies with less complex and cost. Investigating the antenna performance under different wearable conditions such as stretching, flexibility, crumpling, humidity and mitigating the human body effects are important aspects to be considered in wearable antenna research.

The WBAN antennas are either non-invasive or invasive. The wearable antennas are mostly noninvasive prepared with cloths, polymer based flexible materials to wear on cloths or incorporated into devices which can be wearable. WBAN also have invasive antennas like implantable & capsule type antennas. In medical applications these wearable antennas provide diagnostics, continuous monitoring and assistance in medication.


The faculty members from the AICTE approved institutions, research scholars, participants from Government, Industry (Bureaucrats/ Technicians/ Participants from Industry etc.) and staff of host institutions is eligible to attend the program. There is NO REGISTRATION FEE to attend this online FDP.
