Jorge Torres Gómez, Anke Kuestner, Lukas Stratmann and Falko Dressler, "Modeling Ultrasonic Channels with Mobility for Gateway to In-Body Nanocommunication," Proceedings of IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM 2022), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, December 2022, pp. 4535–4540.


Ultrasonic communication is one of the frequently discussed communication technologies for connecting in-body nanosensors with out-of-body gateway systems. Such communication has even been explored in various experimental setups. Yet, the impact of mobility remains mostly unexplored. This paper aims to fill this gap by studying the impact of mobility on ultrasonic communication channels. We study both Doppler shift as well as signal gain both in an analytical model as well as in an extensive set of simulations. Our results indicate a significant impact of the Doppler shift that needs to be compensated for real communication. We also show that the position of the nanosensors with respect to the gateway plays a very important role. Thus, we open the path for new research on protocol design for in-body to out-of-body communication using ultrasound.
