Fifth Generation network Technology (5G) is a promising technology to satisfy the higher data rate requirement for Interconnecting the Things, sensor networking, establishing effective communication between external wireless wearable devices etc. Basically, these devices consist of a battery, sensors and antennas. The antenna is wearable antenna which is an integral part of wearable clothing and end equipment(s). It is a challenging task to design, fabricate and deploy the wearable antennas to provide excellent connectivity between these devices through multiple inputs and multiple outputs.

In this workshop both the cutting-edge wearable technology antennas with different wearable substrates, associated fabrication methods, connectors and testing procedure will be discussed. This will certainly enhance the lateral thinking and perception-based creativity of the attendees to develop their own wearable antennas for various applications as per IEEE protocols and standards. The knowledge gained and information acquired through this workshop will definitely useful for attendees towards product design along-with system integration and networking. In addition to antennas, the design and fabrication of few sensors will also be presented.

The attendees will be enriched by sharing the research and development experience of speakers through following salient features:

➢ Presentation of actual wearable antenna hardware implementation.

➢ Participants will be acquainted with of various substrates, connectors used for wearable and flexible antennas.

➢ Equivalent circuit analysis of microstrip patch antennas (Transmission Line Theory).

➢ Validation of Simulated, Theoretical and Experimental results.

All presentations, discussions, circuit analysis will go hand-in-hand manner.
