Abstract

Sensitivity analysis plays an important role in a variety of statistical methodologies, design procedures and model selection. For development of in-body wireless communications, it is essential to evaluate the designed system performance prior to conducting any practical procedures. Localization of a capsule endoscope inside the gastrointestinal tract is one of the areas that needs to be precisely addressed in wireless body area networks. Since practical experiments on the real human body are quite infeasible, various human phantom models have been developed for this purpose. This study provides a detailed sensitivity analysis for two different anatomical human phantom models. The study shows that the adjustment of best possible grid and the number of cells have a significant impact on the simulation results to obtain a precise path loss and consequently to estimate an accurate location of capsule. This all aid us to improve the system performance.
